Whether you’re a small or big business, growing your global presence is something that should be considered. While you might think bigger businesses are better aligned to promote themselves to the global economy, small businesses can do the same with the exact same tools. Read on to learn more about what’s needed to grow your business’ global presence, and find out just how easy it is!
The Trade Commissioner Service
The Government of Canada has been encouraging businesses to grow their global presence. As such, they have services that can help any business, big or small, to do such. One such service they offer is the Trade Commissioner Service. To begin, the service helps businesses with finding great connections that can help your global presence grow by giving you an easy way to connect with trade commissioners who are ready to help you. The Trade Commissioner Service furthermore offers aid when it comes to exporting, offering businesses assistance with applying for funding, joining a trade mission or event, and also aiding in general knowledge-building when it comes to exporting.
The Trade Commission Service additionally helps businesses learn about the different markets by providing information about trade agreements, tariffs, and sanctions. A plan for one international market will not work for every market, making the process something that requires careful research to grow your business properly.

Looking into exporting might seem intimidating at first, but the Government of Canada has other ways to easily grow your business’ global presence. Another example of how they can help is through this handy guide to global e-commerce. Having e-commerce on your business’ website can easily help you reach not only local customers, but also customers around the globe. Keeping your business up to date online is good practice whether your business reaches globally or not as well, as it can help you promote your business’ online presence.
Whether your business is small or large, the Government of Canada wants nothing more than you to reach the global market. Businesses can easily build their online presence by using the Trade Commissioner Service, looking into e-commerce and digital marketing options, as well as simply keeping their website up-to-date with all of their services and products. The “Canadian” brand can go far in the global marketplace as there has been a carefully-created brand of Canadian businesses that is both professional and respected, making the global marketplace somewhere that Canadians can find a place in easily. Doing some research into the different markets will serve you well, but if you’re ready to get your business into the global marketplace, the Government of Canada is ready to help you, and there are others you can reach out to for assistance as well.
