Department for Business and Trade

Ensure you are prioritising the right export markets for your business with a data-driven approach.

You will learn:
  • How to use market selection methodology to prioritise export markets
  • Where to find relevant open source data to aid your market selection
  • How to use this data effectively and confidently

Selecting the right export market is often based on ‘gut feel’. It may be a favourite travel destination, or you have personal networks there. It may be the source of most enquiries and interest from potential customers and distributors.

This masterclass will demonstrate how a simple data driven approach will help you to prioritise the right export markets for your product or service.
