Would you like to start or increase export?
The FIRST question is – do you already have a distributor in the target country?
If not, the REAL question is — do you know your target segment, positioning, pricing strategy, advertising & promotional budget?
There are countless marketing tactics and strategies out there, so where do you focus your resources and time?
If you are working with an experience distributor in a particular country, they will have all those factors covered and will offer your product to their existing client base, which already buys from them and trusts their judgment. How can you know, if the distributor is right for you in the first place?
The reality is that you will NEVER be able to find out until you will have engaged in a working relationship with them. It’s a people relationship based business and things happen.
If you have several products in your portfolio, try to split them among a couple or several distributors in the country. Why? Because it’s nearly impossible that they would all be bad or go bankrupt in one go.
But we’re still able to get amazing results like no one else because we’ve based our business on building relationships with people/distributors first, which leads to all those expected sales and brand building targets

You’ll see a brief series of questions you’ll need to answer about your business.
Nothing too crazy, we just need the basics about what product you have, where you want to sell it, etc. That way we can understand your situation before we talk and get right to business.
Answer these questions as accurately as possible, and be absolutely sure your contact information is correct so we can reach you.
Here’s What Will Happen Next
Once you’ve filled out the questionnaire, Viktorija will get back to via email or phone to speak to you more about your business and gather more information so we can accurately plan out how to grow your export.
It’s important that you answer the questionnaire thoroughly because if you don’t, we will not be able to carry out our analysis of your business, which means we won’t know you current export situation and expected sales.
You will hear from us within 48 business hours after submitting your application.
After our initial communication, which should not take longer than 30 – 45 minutes.
This is where we really begin working to figure out exactly what you need, and how to make it happen.
At that point if you see the value in working together, great. We’ll talk and see if I’m able to take you on as a client.
If you don’t want to move forward, that’s fine too.
Worst case you would have received some free advice from us, which will help you to assess your export situation.
Ultimately, this is for people who take action and know a good opportunity when they see one.
If that’s you, today is the day you step up and take your business to the next level.
