How to increase international sales through your website

There has never been a better time for East England businesses to grow by trading overseas, and website sales are becoming an ever more important means for business growth, but what do you need to consider when seeking more sales through your website? For example, did you know that 70% of world internet users search in languages other than English? So if you are running an English based website you can take steps to become more visible. Research by PayPal found an estimated 86.4 million of shoppers, from 29 countries surveyed, bought from the UK in the last 12 months. Products from the UK have proved particularly sought-after amongst Chinese shoppers, who made up a quarter of the estimated 86.4 million buyers over the past year.

This event is being led by industry experts SocialB who will help you to identify the strategic and practical issues you need to consider when developing your website strategy.

An experienced International Trade Adviser from the Department for International Trade will provide an overview of the services available, and will provide hands-on hints and tips on exporting, whether you are selling through your website or via more traditional methods.
