Step # 1 – Arrange the Right Product

The first step for you in setting up your export business is to make sure that you have the right product in abundance. See, first you will have to make sure that what product is the right product. This is something that you can do by surveying the market comprehensively. Once you have surveyed the market in the most comprehensive manner then you will be able to make sure about the products, which are in high demand in the global market.

Now, once you have the information about the products, which are demanded highly in the global market then you need to ensure that you have the product in your grasp as well. See, you can either manufacture the product yourself or you can arrange a supplier from, which you can buy the products from. Either ways, you will need to secure a large quantity of this product.

Step # 2 Use a B2B Website

Now, you know which products you want to deal in. You may find suppliers for these products in your local market or you may find them in the international market. You never know how it is going to play out. Therefore, the best way to make sure that you have a lot of options is by registering yourself on a B2B website such as Eworldtrade or Alibaba.

See, b2b websites are virtual platforms, which play the role of an international market for buyers and sellers throughout the world. Now, whether you are looking for suppliers to arrange for an uninterrupted supply for your products or whether you are looking for buyers in the international market, you can do both, using these websites.

It may be possible that your first choice may not be able to deliver the products in time for any of the million reasons, which are out there. In such a scenario, you need to have a couple of other trusted suppliers, which can help you keep your business running.

Step # 3 Start Looking for Buyers

Now, you have already arranged suppliers for your products. What you need to do next is to make sure that you also get in touch with the buyers as well. Therefore, you must use the same b2b websites but now you need to look for buyers instead of suppliers.

Now, you will find hundreds and thousands of buyers on these websites. You cannot possibly contact them all because it would take a lot of time. However, you can screen through the numbers and contact the ones, which are the most suitable choice for you. Now, the suitable choice for you should be based on the volume or minimum order quantity, which they are willing to buy. Along with that, you must also see, what price they are willing to pay as well.

Step # 4 Screen and Select

Once you have shortlisted the buyers, you need to contact them and further screen the list based on your conversations and negotiations with them. You may also send a sample of your products to them as well so that they can see what quality of the products you are selling them as well.

Once the negotiations are done, you can select the buyers, who are willing to buy the quantity, which you can easily keep supplying in the future. Furthermore, this is something, which doesn’t needs to be mentioned but, you must always go for the buyers, who are willing to pay the highest price for your products.
