Kansas City, MO (PRWEB) April 13, 2013
According to the U.S. Small Business Administration (SBA), only four percent of the nation's 28 million or more small businesses export their products and services. Yet, small business accounts for 99.7 percent of all employer firms and generated 65 percent of net new jobs the past 17 years.
Companies that export goods and services generally pay higher wages, are longer lived and contribute more to the U.S. economy and its job market.
Based on results of research conducted by IBNewsmag among entrepreneurs and non-exporting small businesses in the Kansas City region, many small businesses would like to export but simply did not know where to seek help in beginning the export process. With 95 percent of the world's population located outside of the U.S., exporting is a readily available means to help companies grow and improve America's economy at the same time.
"Too often, small businesses have no knowledge of where to turn for help in learning how to export," said Frederick Baehner, editor and publisher of IBNewsmag."We view this as much more of a barrier to exporting than many of the technical aspects."
In order to help entrepreneurs and smaller companies get started, IBNewsmag is offering an online brochure, "Ten Proven Tips To Score International Sales" in a concise, comprehendible guide.
Developed by a panel of experienced international business experts, they offer their own practical suggestions in developing export pograms along with appropriate references to federal and state resources, including the U.S. Commercial Service, SBA and others.
