Everything first begins in mind. If something, like our export figures, doesn't go well, it is probable that the problem lies down in the way of our thinking. After all, it is the real source for everything that is happening to us. Therefore, even a slight improvement in the way of thinking or removal of a mental block can advance our business significantly as well as our life.Mental blocks don't always come across like a threat or even a problem. They may seem pretty innocent approaches to the issues. However, they can also be the real cause for the problem in the first place. I frequently notice wannabe exporters having some kind of mental blocks. Below I have listed 7 kinds of them.
Market research is very crucial for a successful export planning. It is not a one-off thing. In a changing world, it is a constant process of collecting information about markets. And sometimes, it looks like a kind of detective work. You should ask right questions, collect as much relevant information as possible and eventually, bring together all clues in order to understand the market.
I have listed some questions which one could use in conducting a market research for export business.

Do you think it is the right attitude to place blame on the global financial crisis for your company’s bad export performance? Think again.
