What’s the Simplest Exporting You Can Do?

Tyler G. Hicks

by Tyler G. Hicks

Exporting intrigues thousands of people. Yet when they're on the verge of deciding on their own export business, they get worried and often ask: “What's the simplest exporting I can do?” The answer is:

  • Export a product that's complete in itself–such as a toothbrush, a lead pencil, a wrist watch, or a finger ring.
  • Avoid exporting products needing complex assembly, intricate operating procedures, highly experienced mechanics.
  • Seek exports that are small, lightweight, free of dangerous chemicals, easy to ship, need little explaining to use, and that are needed by large groups of people.

Once you've found such an export you'd like to work with, take these steps:

  1. Look for suppliers of your export. One quick way to find a supplier is to contact the Trade Association serving the export you've chosen. You'll find a list of associations at your public or private library.
  2. Contact the Trade Association you've chosen for a list of suppliers of “your” export.
  3. Find oversea buyers of your export through the U.S. Department of Commerce and your local State Department of Commerce.
  4. Contact overseas buyers, make the sale and export your SIMPLE PRODUCT to earn a good profit for your work!
