Because I am constantly answering emailed questions from people
about the Import Export Business, I thought that these
questions and my answers may be of interest to others and will
begin with this post to go back through my files and post some
of the questions and answers. Be sure to let me know if you
find this helpful to you, your business or your decision to
start an import export business.
First Post From Our Import Export Business Email Files:
message: I am 36 years old and know nothing about the import
export business, however, I am very interested in purchasing
your training package and starting a business in this field.
My concern is this. Does someone need to be in the field or
have experience before venturing into a business? Am I over
stepping by not being involved first? If you can give a
little guidance it would be greatly appreciated. Thank You
Thank you for your inquiry.
The answer to both of your questions is No and No. You do not
need experience before venturing into this field. This is what
our Import Export Tool Kit is designed to provide you, i.e.,
the knowledge of how to proceed and the resources you will
need to do so.
No, you are not overstepping, unless you try to enter the field
by the helter skelter method of not learning the import export
business process and at least having a basic understanding of
the procedural flow of that process.
You may be interested in reading some or all of the posts I
have made to a new blog that was just set up within the last
two weeks. The emphasis on this blog is to individuals and
business owners such as you. The url is:
One thing to keep in mind. Our course covers all aspects of
the import export business. The important thing to keep in
mind is, you DO NOT need to actually perform all of those
procedures or processes. You should, however, as I state in
my latest blog post, have an understanding of how those
processes work so you do not get ripped of in the "process" so
to speak or at the least you are able to talk intelligently
with someone you may be hiring to perform them for you.
I hope this has dispelled some of the fears you might have and
I strongly suggest you visit the blog and at a minimum, read
the latest post which was just completed an hour ago. If there
are any other questions, please feel free to contact me via
email or phone at 717-292-5763. If I am not in the office,
leave your name, phone and the best time(s) to call you back
and I will do so ASAP. Kindest regards, Ron Coble
Here is the 2nd Email and reply for this post:
message: I'm in retail business, since 1999, own a silver
jewelry store in Palm Springs, CA.
I came to US in 1992 from Russia and know that there is a huge
potential of products and raw materials that might have a demand
in USA. I have good connections, (brother, cousins) who can find
the right products to import here.
I would like to start my own import company, but the thing is
I don't have experience with mechanical part of the process. For
an example, two days ago, my cousin asked me if I can find the
long-term buyer for red iron-oxide.
Thanks in advance for advise or help.
My Reply to this 2nd Message:
Thank you for your inquiry.
International trade and business is a very interesting field.
Each potential business deal offers you a different format that
you may or may not follow.
You may operate as an agent, broker or actually take possession
of the goods yourself (something we do not recommend for
I strongly suggest that you review our free materials at our web
to get an idea of what can be involved in an international trade
deal. We have a great ebook on starting an exporting business
which is something that you should really consider as there is
much more government and private assistance for exporters,
rather than importers.
Once you have read all of our free materials, I suggest you
then review out Import Export Tool Kit.
You need to have reference materials and a solid understanding
of how this business operates. The tool kit provides you with
both. Here are names of the free import export business
