Los Angeles, CA (PRWEB) September 20, 2008
The squeeze is on. Small business owners have been unable to elude the recent economic downturn felt in the U.S. economy. Many are scrambling to find solutions that will assist them in dealing with the inflationary pressures of rising prices and slowing growth. Raising prices and cutting costs are the two most likely responses, but there are others that may prove beneficial.
John Vanhara, President of Shipito, a national and international mail forwarding company based in Los Angeles, CA suggests that many small businesses may want to look to expanding globally. "While it is true that many sectors of the U.S. economy are experiencing a slowdown that is impacting many, there are still opportunities to sell products abroad," says Vanhara. "Many small businesses hesitate to take the plunge because they think shipping internationally can be a huge headache, filled with risk, but that is not necessarily the case if you know what you are doing or can find someone who does."
A strong Euro continues to draw many Europeans to the U.S. marketplace looking for products at a bargain. Vanhara believes small business owners should turn their business eye abroad and take a hard look at the possibilities out there. "Don't let the fear of dealing with bureaucratic red tape often encountered with shipping internationally stand in the way of growing your business," suggests John Vanhara.
"Companies like Shipito are experienced in dealing with the required documentation and cutting through the red tape. We have set up programs for small business owners that allow them to successfully ship products internationally without the usual frustrations shipping can bring. For our clients, shipping internationally is no longer an obstacle and they can focus their attentions on the development of a new marketplace."
Shipito is owned and operated by Eastbiz Corporation. Since 2001, Eastbiz has successfully operated one of the largest mail forwarding centers in Las Vegas, serving over 1400 clients. With branches in Memphis, TN and now Los Angeles, CA, Shipito is able to successfully serve clients both national and internationally.
