The U.S. Commercial Service Can Help You
Explore the Global Sales Chanel to Expand your Business
E-Commerce is transforming the world of trade for consumers and businesses. Small and medium-sized enterprises (SME) now have channels to buy and sell globally sitting at their PC, tablet or smartphone. E-Commerce will play a big role in enhancing U.S. exports by enabling any person with a good product or service to sell to anyone, anywhere and at any time. Join the U.S. Commercial Service and partners for a comprehensive seminar on understanding
e-commerce, including the following:
• Develop, expand and grow your web presence to attract international buyers & manage international distributors.
• Learn about cross border sales, forms of electronic payments, web analytics, search engine optimization and intellectual property protection.
• Interact with a resource panel of web, payment, logistics and legal experts.
While the seminar is tailored to small and medium sized companies that operate or want to operate outside the United States, any member of the exporting community is welcome to join us. We are pleased to have speakers from FedEx, Payscape and more!
Why e-Commerce for Your Business
In 2016, consumers used e-commerce technology and processes to buy USD 210 billion worth of goods and services in other countries. This is called cross-border e-commerce. Forester Research anticipates cross-border sales will mushroom to USD 424 billion by 2021.
