6 Steps to Export Success

Open to Export is the free online information service from the Institute of Export & International Trade, dedicated to helping small UK businesses get ready to export and expand internationally.

We offer a wealth of free information and practical advice along a 6 step journey to export success, including articles, webinars, and frequently asked questions.

These steps are: ‘Getting started’, ‘Selecting a market’, ‘Reaching customers’, ‘Pricing and getting paid’, ‘Delivery and documentation’ and ‘Starting your Export Action Plan’.

Finally, our Export Action Plan tool asks you questions along each of these 6 steps, giving your prompts and useful resources along the way, to allow you to create a coherent and comprehensive plan for taking your business global.
