Stage 1

STRATEGIZE

This is the exploratory stage where we evaluate your export readiness, new market feasibility, competition environment, risks, and financial performance in the context of international trade.

Our goal is transparency and clarity, so you have what you need to make decisions and can trust that every step we take together is aimed at your success.

Stage 2

INTEGRATE

Entering a new market, especially an international one, can be a daunting and seemingly impossible task. The eCommerce markets your business is entering exist on platforms westerners are largely unfamiliar with and can sometimes be inaccessible by Google or other usual channels. The culture and language are strange, and the rules of engagement are literally foreign. Plus, how can you be sure that your product, and most importantly the idea behind it, will be safe? This is where we come in. Our unique process ensures that your business is on the right platforms, reaching the right people, speaking the right language and behaving as it should, while also being protected legally.

Stage 3

MANAGE

Your international trade business, like the one in Canada, requires regular maintenance and ongoing care to grow and prosper. But managing multiple markets, especially a foreign one as complex and large as many Asian e-markets, is difficult. Language barriers, time zone differences, and intercultural communication gaps all add up to a very challenging business environment. Our solution is to monitor and maintain your online presence in selected markets, help bridge the cultural and language gaps, integrate business systems in a way that you see results and can trust, and accelerate the growth of your international trade business.

Marketing Management

Developing seasonal and culturally relevant sales, advertising, and marketing campaigns for your business to help support growth and maintain your position in the overseas e-markets.

Providing regular reporting to you and conducting routine performance reviews regarding the local market implementations to ensure top performance and sustainable growth for your international trade business.
