To be successful in exporting (as in any business), you must properly plan your exports (or business strategy). Export planning and preparation is a time-consuming procedure. Setting export objectives, developing your export marketing strategy, preparing an export budget, outlining an execution timetable, and presenting and receiving approval for the export plan are all part of it. Knowledge of the markets you are wanting to sell to is important when planning your local business and is equally important when planning your exporting venture but now you need to research an international market.
