Years Experience

With the canvas you make a first draft for an export plan. The system works for small business owners, for freelancers or companies with a separate Sales & Marketing department. Whether you recently started or have been an entrepreneur for several years; the Export Canvas helps you with an investigation, a report and ultimately everything summarized on one A4. An awareness process in which you clearly map your new export opportunities with 12 building blocks.

It makes you aware of the export ambition of your company. Clear questions provide a good picture of, for example, the export earnings model, your export vision, the added value, customers and business partners.

The Export Canvas is based on the Business Model Canvas, parts of a Lean Start-Up, Six Sigma, Blue Ocean and a solid dose of export sales, international marketing and the experiences of all coaches and advisers abroad.

Export offers possibilities for your company. Also it can lead to more revenue. But you can’t just start exporting. The right preparations and making a proper exporting plan will contribute to a successful expansion of your company.

Imagine, you want to start building a home. You don’t just tell the contractor to start building. He wouldn’t know what your specific needs are. That’s why you need an architect who will draw up your plans. A flat roof, a garage and the number of bedrooms are all questions that are included in a construction drawing. With this construction drawing the constructor can start building.

Just like the architect that makes a construction drawing in this example, an experienced export coach helps you with your Export Canvas. It is the first step taken to successful doing international business.

For companies that depend on exporting these are difficult times. Some need a new strategy. You might want to look at exporting to other countries or cater your service or product to another buyer persona. 

Especially for these entrepreneurs we offer several in-depth courses. An Export Expert will take you by the hand and will show you what different options you have. We have combined several building blocks of the Export Canvas to visualize a new export strategy.

Export Canvas specializes in helping businesses to profitably grow through expanding in international markets. Whatever the level of support you need, whatever stage you are at in your business, we turn your ambitions into reality.

Are you looking to grow your business through exporting? Assess your company’s readiness to enter your first markets, expand into additional markets, or take on more challenging, high-growth export markets.

Importing and exporting are trillion-dollar industries. But that doesn’t mean they’re just for big business. In fact, small businesses make up about 96 percent of this field. Learn how to become a part of this ever-expanding economy.

Trade exists because one group or country has a supply of some commodity or merchandise that is in demand by another. And as the world becomes more and more technologically advanced, as we shift in subtle and not so subtle ways toward one-world modes of thought, international trade becomes more and more rewarding, both in terms of profit and personal satisfaction.
