Want to take your business to the next level? You should think about exporting.

From Karen G. Mills, Administrator, U.S. Small Business Administration

Your business has already succeeded in the most competitive market on the planet – the USA – so just imagine what you can do abroad. In foreign markets, you will find fewer competitors and you start with a significant advantage: consumers around the world trust the words "Made In America."

There are free resources to help your business begin exporting, provided by the US government. To discover what is available, visit www.export.gov.

There, you can connect to counselors, market matchmakers, and banks. You can also learn how U.S. government export insurance, working capital loans, and foreign buyer financing can protect you and your bank from transaction risk. Export.gov helps you access the experience of successful exporters, who will show you:

How to manage the risk of doing business overseas
Which markets and trade partners to select
Where to secure capital on favorable terms
How to design your website for international business

Did you know that small businesses already account for more than a third of all America’s export sales? Today more than ever, overseas markets are business-friendly, ready to pay, and well-connected by technology.

Seize the opportunity of a vastly larger market for your product with the resources found on www.export.gov.
