Exporting businesses generally are more profitable than their non-exporting counterparts. They:

  • have better growth prospects
  • have more skilled and productive staff
  • adapt to new technologies and best practice faster.

Exporting exposes your business to new:

  • ideas
  • management practices
  • marketing techniques
  • ways of competing.

If you have a limited Australian market, consider exporting. Small local businesses can build global brands, especially in rural and regional Australia.

Austrade's website offers extensive information and a step-by-step guide to exporting to help you get started.
