If you want to find new customers, anywhere in the world, you can do it online with WebPort Global. It’s easier than you think and it’s available for any Irish business, big or small.
If you export to the UK, you will be keenly aware of the threat to your business that Brexit poses. Not to put too fine a point on it, but you should be looking for new markets.
WebPort Global is a platform designed to connect SMEs with new customers. It connects businesses in over 60 countries worldwide.
“Our job is to build leads for Irish businesses that want to find customers in new markets, not just the UK,” says Maureen Pace (left), president of WebPort Global.
“Small and medium Irish businesses may have thought about the US market and then thought they didn’t have the time and money to research the market, find new customers and start exporting. WebPort Global makes all this possible for SMEs,” says Pace.
One business owner who is enjoying success using WebPort Global is Jason Coyle, CEO of award-winning food brand Mr Crumb (see video above).
The portal’s concierge service helped Coyle connect with influential retail buyers in the US including WalMart.
“The service helped me connect with a North American grocery industry expert which led to a series of face-to-face and telephone meetings with US buyers,” says Coyle.
“Another key part of WebPort Global’s service is our Global Trade Export Network,” says Pace.
“Business owners can see trade reports and case studies relating to their activities. They can also take part in discussion forums and profile their offering to the other users of the platform.”
