Setting up an export business is probably the most risky “game” you could start playing as an investor or as a businessperson. What should be told first about the export business opportunities is that they do exist but you need to be extremely well-experienced if you would like to make it a success story otherwise you are too much likely to fail.
Basically, when you set up an export business there are to main exits- you make a fortune or you fail and lose everything you had invested. I really would not like to say it but it is much more likely for you to experience the second alternative since it is very difficult to elbow a way among all that severe competition.
If you have a good, or at least basic, financial and currency knowledge then you probably know that the success of the export business depends on where it is based. There are some countries whose currency is favorable for stock export and a fortune could really be made. Unfortunately, those are mainly the countries in Asia, especially China and Japanese but countries such as India should not be underestimated also. The reason why those countries export so many goods and stocks is that their costs are extremely low and people in Europe tend to buy them.
Anyway, if you do not live somewhere in Asia therefore you are taking much more risk as your stock will probably be much more expensive. What you should do then is to choose the quality. Just do your best to persuade the people that you are the best in your line and there are no better stocks than yours! This way you still may achieve some success in Europe or USA but you’d better forget about Asia as the market there is totally different. However, you should keep in your mind that making people think your stocks are good costs money, a lot of money! Perhaps, you will have to spend millions on advertising activities as you will need to promote your stocks in many countries so that they can become popular.
You probably understand that just grabbing the first opportunity for export business is not something which you can do. And do not forget about the investment, which is usually millions of dollars or euros and it will probably take years until you return it on. The conclusion is that you just have to think twice before making the decision to set up such a kind of business!
