Exporting Strategy It helps to hire an EMC or, at least, someone with experience. Focus on one or a few markets. Enter markets on a fairly small scale until you ‘learn the ropes’. Add new lines after initial success. Need to recognize the time and managerial commitment. Build strong and lasting relationships. Hire locals to help firm establish itself. Keep the option of local production in mind. © McGraw Hill Companies, Inc., 2000 15-4
