Module 1. How do I build the solid foundation for my export-import business?

Just like you start building a house with a solid foundation, there are certain elements you must consider to ensure the long-term success and sustainability of your international trading business. We’ll start at the beginning and lay the foundation for your export-import business.

Module 2. How do I avoid costly mistakes caused by lack of knowledge of my target or source market, competition or product regulations?

One of the worst problems anyone trading internationally runs into is having the goods stuck at customs office across the world because the supplier or the buyer didn’t bother to check the product regulations of the country of destination before they shipped the goods. You wonder what could possibly be the worst problem? When nobody buys the goods you put so much time and money to bring to the other side of the world. Trust me, you don’t want to be in those situations. That’s why it is critical to address them beforehand!

Goal: Obtain global, market, and product intelligence to maximize the chances of success in trading your specific product on your specific markets. Make your offer more appealing to your specific markets.

You Will Learn How To:

  • Navigate the universe of international trade agreements and use them to your advantage.
  • Validate the demand on your product in the foreign markets using the 8-step research framework before you shipped the product. Don’t worry! The research is very hands-on and practical and doesn’t require you to have a rocket science degree!
  • Understand cultural nuances which impact foreign buyers or suppliers decisions.
  • Analyze competition and take advantage of your strengths and their weaknesses.
  • Find out what exactly the duties, taxes and non-tariff barriers for your product in the foreign market are.

Module 4. How do I register my business, get organized and get my first international trade transaction within 12 months?

People often start right here which is wrong! They spend days and months looking through dozens of social media networks and hundreds of online trading websites. You may have been on those websites and networks too and hope you realized early enough that it is somewhat inefficient. The international trade is, to a large extent, about the relationship and connections you are establishing. But how do you know that the connections you established online are reliable ones? You don’t.

Goal: Understand what documents, policies, resources and systems are required to make your export & import business operational. Find out where to find reliable foreign buyers and suppliers and how to deal with them.

  • Find the contacts of reliable and reputable foreign buyers and suppliers.
  • Conduct a due diligence on the buyers or suppliers to ensure they are not involved in fraud, money laundering or terrorism financing.

Congratulations! Your effort paid off. You’ve just got your first international trade deal. Now what? How do you deliver your goods or receive the goods you’ve ordered? How do you pay or ensure you get paid? What paperwork should you deal with? Calm down! It is not as bad as you think.

You Will Learn:

Fifteen years ago Igor started to help his father launch his international trade business in pharmaceuticals and medical equipment and supplies area. He had no clue where to start with, how to select the right foreign supplier, negotiate with the foreign buyer, ensure the shipment gets to our warehouse on time - nothing! The result? He eventually figured it out but at a huge cost including a truckload of frozen ampules one winter waiting at the border in the middle of nowhere stuck in customs.

You don't have to pay such a huge price! Igor's motivation behind creating this coaching program is to help you avoid the losses and pitfalls that he experienced when he started my import & export business.

Frequently Asked Questions

Will this course continue to be updated? And will I get access to future versions?
Yes! This will be a flagship product and it will be updated on a regular basis as the international trade rules and environment change.
How is this course different from what I can learn about export & import from the textbooks or online resources?
This course is a practical one and is tailored to your needs, goals, products and situation. It is different from theoretical materials, textbooks and online articles that are not and can not be related to your particular case. The course contains more details with use cases, examples, checklists and video tutorials.
Will this work for someone who is not in the export-import business yet?
Absolutely. The primary goal of designing this course was to involve more people in international trade even if they have no prior experience in this area. All of the strategies and tools taught are built on universal business and marketing principles.
I'm already trading internationally. How will this course help me?
First of all, it will help you further expand your trade in the international markets you are currently trading in by better defining your customer profile or value proposition, for example. Secondly, the course will help you identify new international markets and create an actionable step-by-step plan to expand into them. That being said, you may not need all 5 modules if you already trade internationally.
Will what you teach work in my country and for my product?
Yes, it will! The international trade has been around the world since the first nomads started travelling between the settlements of the first farmers and exchanged the goods and food. We teach what has been working for thousands of years, across all geographies, products and political systems.
Can I afford this right now?
At the end of the day, that's a question you have to answer. The pricing model is specifically designed to enable beginners to get started without breaking the bank. You may buy the modules one by one and buy the next module after the completion of the previous one.
Is this actually possible to get the import-export business up and running and get the first deal done in just 12 months?
Absolutely. I did it without focus or having really any idea what I was doing. You'll have a major advantage on me by having someone hold you accountable and tell you exactly what works and what doesn't.
How much time will this take?
Great question! The course delivery itself is about 1 hour per module. However, the homework and filling course materials and templates may take extra 3-8 hours. When you get to the massive action phase and start looking for foreign buyers or suppliers, allocate as much time as possible on this activity, because it is a bread and butter of your international trading business.
Can you guarantee that I will earn 6 figures within 12 months from my export-import business?
Let me clarify: we guarantee that you will start up the export-import business within 12 months. Also, by the end of the course, you will get the proven, practical and tailored system to grow it to 6 figures. The rest depends on you and your due efforts in developing and maintaining your international trading business. One thing we can guarantee is that nothing will change for you unless you try to change it.
Why do you do this?
I believe strongly that the more people trade with each other, the better they understand each other and learn to live in peace with each other. Thus, my personal mission is to engage as many people as I can in international trade to achieve more peace and prosperity we, people of the Earth, need so much. By moving the practical training online and making it available and affordable to the people around the world I can fulfill my mission and do my part of making this world a better place.
