    The Benefits of Selling Globally



    • New sales opportunities: The more saturated and competitive your domestic market, the more fresh international opportunities will appeal. For a start, you’ll be able to maintain margins instead of cutting prices to compete. And if you are dominant at home you can use that as a springboard to grow new sales opportunities abroad.
    • Planning and risk mitigation: Diversifying your sales across international ecommerce spreads economic, political and seasonal risks and supply imbalances. It also extends product life cycles as you rollout product release and availability across territories.
    • An international reputation: A broader, more visible international profile can boost your reputation. Success in one country inspires success in another. This is your chance to impress your expertise on the whole world.
