Ten reasons to expand to the USA - today!
By: Jim Pettinger
Today is a great day to expand your Canadian business to the USA. Or, to start importing quality goods from Asia or Europe into the USA.

  1. Exchange rates are always beneficial: When low, you can invest Canadian capital more economically, and when high, you can earn a premium on your USA sales (see www.xe.com).

  2. Credit card and other interest rates are low to encourage consumers and businesses to buy.

  3. Over 92 percent of American workers are at work today, working hard to earn money that could be spent to purchase your product or service. 

  4. Corporate travel and entertainment have been curtailed.  That, coupled with the economic slowdown, means American managers and purchasing agents are more available than ever to receive your sales call or proposal.

  5. Your competitors are sitting on the fence, waiting for someone to lead the way (and get to the buyer first).

  6. The US government is "stimulating" everything is sight (see www.summitinsight.com).

  7. Asian and European manufacturers have sharpened their pencils. Good deals on product and freight are available.

  8. Americans are very resilient. When the "rebound" starts, it will happen very quickly.

  9. Experienced trade commissioners in more than 15 US cities are waiting for your call or e-mail (see www.canadainternational.gc.ca/seattle).

  10. Gas is (relatively) cheap.
So, why are you wasting your valuable marketing time reading this article?
