Friday, January 27th, 2017

New Hampshire exports are a vital part of our economy – $4 billion in 2015, supporting over 18,000 jobs in the Granite State.

In 2014, 2,734 businesses here exported their goods to markets overseas. Is it time for your business to go global?

Your go-to resource is the Office of International Commerce, which assists businesses with finding those markets and helping you navigate the process. Program Manager Tina Kasim and international trade officers Nathaniel Nelson and Rachel Adams (above) work with partners like US Commercial Services, the Small Business Administration and The Provident Bank to provide timely information and training seminars.

Rachel explains upcoming programs like the one on Feb. 1 –  Expanding Overseas Sales through E-Commerce.  

It features eBay’s Aparna Lahiri, global shipping program manager, who will cover growing marketplaces, industry trends, export compliance and economic development opportunities through e-commerce.

Register today to learn about these marketplaces and export requirements for an online business.

Join Us on the World Wide Web(inar) to Learn About E-Commerce

Part of the mission of the Office of International Commerce is to educate New Hampshire businesses about the benefits of exporting and help them find global markets.

We’ve brought back our webinar series this year and the next one is scheduled for Thursday (3/17). From the comfort of your office, you can learn about the topic Expanding Overseas Sales through E-Commerce. The presenters include representatives from eBay, who will talk about increasing international business sales via e-commerce; growing marketplaces; export compliance and economic development opportunities.

E-commerce and social media have become powerful tools that companies of all sizes are using to expand their business. This webinar will have particular appeal to our small businesses, who will learn about the platform. Among the questions we’ll be asking:

  • What is different about shipping B2C instead of B2B?
  • What is the benefit of shipping to international customers?
  • What documentation does the U.S. seller have to provide for the international shipment to be processed?

Space is available; you can register here.

Our webinars cover a variety of topics and are geared toward companies that are new to exporting, as well as businesses experienced in global markets. We started 2016 with a webinar discussion Updates on United States Sanctions Cuba, Iran, Crimea, Russia & Ukraine, a newsworthy topic and will continue with the e-commerce and how to utilize international trade leads (that’s coming up next month). Our webinar series is informative and worth the time and we’re looking forward to you joining them.
