A good indication of the export opportunity is the number of inquiries from a particular market.Asian markets are much more attractive in terms of transportation costs and time.Asian customers are familiar with Australian products and quite often it is easier to negotiate better deals with Asian buyers.Rapidly growing markets,such as China and India,are usually better targets for commencing export than developed countries.Know the market’s requirements such as Assess your target customers,Examine your competitors,Be prepared to compete against lower-cost,lower-price local companies etc.Go to a target market personally and get a feel for local conditions.

7.Meet demand time & money:-
Most likely your products will be successful internationally and the demand for them will be increasing.Be ready to increase production or to outsource similar products elsewhere.It is seen that investments in international markets are greater than domestic investments.Exploring foreign markets can take longer and cost more than expected.
