International Business

There are several reasons why my company would want to market overseas. Selling overseas is a great way to expand one's market potential. In a country like Turkey, we would be adding another 80 million or so potential customers. This can help us to fill existing capacity, to generate new revenue and it can also serve to provide us with some geographic diversification (Gordin, 2011). If we are already producing in Turkey, selling there would give us an opportunity to create an operating hedge on the Turkish lira.

There are a number of different methods for expanding abroad. These are exporting, licensing, joint ventures and direct investment.

Licensing would be hiring a local Turkish firm to produce for the Turkish market, with us providing the specs and licensing the brand.

Many critical business elements are essentially out of your control. Further, our lack of knowledge with respect to the Turkish legal system puts us at a disadvantage in disputes. But there are also advantages to working with an importer. The importer has much greater knowledge of marketing and distributing in Turkey and thus may be able to make better decisions than we would be able to. Moreover, the importer takes on some of the risk. Exporting is the lowest-risk option, and the one with the lowest up front capital requirements. Thus, exporting is a…
