According to the SBA, the average small- to medium-sized company should focus on 2-3 export countries at a time to be successful. In 2015, however, Ohio companies sold $50 Billion of goods into 215 countries. With so many prospective countries, how do you choose which to focus on for your company’s international expansion or investment plan? Should you plan to enter only one country or plan to focus on a region? How should your marketing methods differ from domestic strategy?

Topics Covered:

How to set the right price for the right product
