The SBA now offers the Export Business Planner, a free, customizable tool for small business owners considering exporting. The planner lets you work through the critical processes of export readiness and planning using an easily accessible document that can be updated and referenced often, as your export business grows. If you have a successful product or service, you may be able to increase sales and profit by going international.
Downloading is easy. The Export Business Planner is in PDF format. To view, save and print it, you will need the most current version of Adobe Reader, which may be downloaded free that from the Adobe website. (If you have Adobe Acrobat version 9 or later on your computer, you won’t need the free Reader.) For your copy, go to https://www.sba.gov/sites/default/files/SBA%20Export%20Business%20Planner.pdf
