Today we are going to dedicate the post to the commercial delegations of a company. Before going deeply into the subject in question, it is important to understand the term and also give it its corresponding definition.
The international trade dictionary defines the delegation as “the sales office that acts as an extension of the company in a foreign market, but without legal personality, or ability to perform operations on its own behalf.”
Market outside of your city and your comfort zone is a way to break barriers and expand your business reaching another type of audience, and therefore meet other needs. It is a step forward for your business, it opens doors in the foreign market and therefore your company must be prepared internally to cover the needs of the public that claims them. Next, we will expose a series of steps that advise you to follow so the investment that you carry out do not be in vain.
In the first place, it is essential to study the market in the area in which you want to implement the delegation. It is necessary to investigate and know the country, the city, the area, its customs, culture and people. Know the accessibility of the necessary resources, the existing competences, etc. In order to carry out a good analysis of the above, it is advisable to have a local counselor that will help you make decisions with much more security and conviction.
Second, the implication, effort and perseverance are factors that should be part of the plan. Maintaining a delegation abroad requires a lot of personal determination if you want to carry out the business. Traveling when your delegation needs it, falls within these responsibilities and commitments. It is important that from the start you become aware of it so you will be able to cover all the fronts it entails.
Third, calculate the costs of the launch to the foreign market. To do this, obtain a prior financial plan before driving you into the void. Maintaining a delegation abroad is a high expense that you have to be prepared to face. Business centers are the ideal alternative that should enter your initial financial plan. It is the most economic and effective way to give voice and visibility to your business.
