President Obama’s National Export Initiative, which calls for a doubling of the nation’s exports to support creating two million jobs in the next five years, was launched to encourage small businesses to grow through exporting. And while the idea of expanding into foreign markets can seem daunting for small and midsize businesses, the launch of Export Now (www.exportnow.com) is looking to change this with a first-of-its-kind, e-commerce solution to help businesses efficiently and inexpensively export to China.
• Allows U.S. companies of any size to grow revenue and compete in foreign markets through exporting.
• Eliminates the biggest challenges of doing business abroad by bridging the cultural and financial gaps of complex foreign markets.
• Distributes goods via its exclusive store on Tmall.com, while simultaneously listing them on Taobao.com, the largest B2C platform in the world (last year more than 370 million people used Taobao.com, spending over $60 billion on China’s largest, fastest-growing e-commerce marketplace).
The Export Now launch event will include an introduction about growth opportunities through exporting and new technologies to make exporting easier, as well as an Export Now product demonstration and discussion on the importance and ease of exporting for U.S. businesses from Export Now founder Frank Lavin.
Expanding into foreign markets just became easier with today’s launch of Export Now (www.exportnow.com), which provides a one-stop, e-commerce solution to help businesses of any size efficiently, and inexpensively export to China. Export Now launched its solution today at an event in Washington, D.C., that featured Francisco J. Sánchez, Under Secretary for International Trade at the U.S. Department of Commerce.

Are you tired of all the doom and gloom? ‘So are we,’ U.S. e-tailers say in a new survey conducted by Alibaba.com, one of the world’s largest business-to-business (B2B) online marketplaces.

More than half (60%) of e-tailers say they may focus on products that are bright, bold and cheerful, for example, and avoid conservative designs and colors.
