International Sales Manager – Process Control and Instrumentation
I’ve frequently emphasized the importance of having access to an international sales stream. Here’s an excellent solution on the hardware side.
Let’s say you have a promising company that manufactures technical products. Process controls and instrumentation, for example. You’re doing $20 million to $25 million a year.
The U.S. market has been cranky. South America is no help. Europe is going to… well, we don’t know. And Asia is all over the place.
How do you grow your sales in a world like that?
Casting A Wider Net
There are two reasons the big guys are generating record sales.
Companies like Honeywell are innovating far ahead of the needs of their markets. Literally, Honeywell cultivates incredibly diverse markets, making products available slightly before its customers even realize they need them.
The benefit, of course, is that no one market slump can damage Honeywell’s overall growth. On the upside, Honeywell is actually capable of growing faster than its individual markets. Think about that.
So, market diversity is one way to increase sales. Geographic diversity is the other.
All the major internationals cast a wide net, carrying their messages around the world. Each market demanding its own approach and responding only for its own needs.
If you haven’t been there before, international sales can be a mind-blowing proposition.
If you have been there before, then you have an understanding of some rich and complex opportunities.
