About This Web Site
Going global is a term commonly
used to describe a company or institution which has decided to participate in
international business activities in order to seek better business
opportunities or to provide better services
to its organization's members. Such a
decision quite frequently entails a turnaround in the
organization's basic orientation to how it
conducts business or provides member services. The issue of how to
get started in international business is often confusing and
can cause problems within an organization.
This is especially true in the case of small
and medium sized companies and the institutions which serve
them because they very rarely have
specialized personnel with significant international
business experience or expertise.
This website has
been established primarily to assist individual
entrepreneurs, small and medium sized companies
and a variety of organizations in finding ways to simplify the process of
getting started in international business. We provide information about how to
use the Internet to help your entity more effectively manage the costs of going
global, so that budgetary restraints of even the smallest company or
organization will not prevent it from taking advantage of exciting
We have purposely maintained a very
simple website design so that even the most computer illiterate person can visit
here and easily find the information for which he/she is searching. We know from
experience that many of the people who need the information which we provide are
"newbies", that is, people who really are newcomers and do not know
very much about the Internet or global business. While the content of the site
will be constantly improved, the design will remain very basic. We are providing
information, not fancy graphics.
This site also offers some unique
opportunities for small and medium sized companies to participate in global
business partnering or international business networking. Please go to our
and complete the form there or contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org
for more information. The global networking area of the links section, Links
to Other Sites lists other sites where you will be able to engage in
global networking as well.
There are numerous WWW sites
dedicated to international business. We have decided to focus on the issues
concerning a company's decision to enter global business. We know from many
years of experience that mistakes made at this time can often have a negative
effect on a company's chances for success. We have purposely avoided offering
too much how-to advice because we know that this can often be confusing and
misleading to a novice or newcomer who is merely looking for some basic
information with which to get started. However, the resources provided here will
be useful to many people other than just newbies to international business and
the Internet. We strongly encourage you to use these resources to learn more
about the Internet and global business. We also hope that you will actively
participate in the various opportunities for global networking.
