There are thousands of quality British designs, innovations, products and services with no presence on the global stage, and many successful exporters who would like to attract additional buyers from new markets. Many SMEs find it prohibitively expensive and time consuming to expand into overseas markets, and lack access to the networks and contacts necessary to find global buyers.
GreatBritishStore.com aims to make exporting easier and more profitable for SMEs in the UK, by providing an entry-level exporting solution for UK-registered businesses (both new to exporting and already exporting.)
GreatBritishStore.com allows British businesses to showcase and sell their products or services cost-effectively, and with very limited time investment, on a unique eCommerce platform. For just £199 per year, businesses can start selling their products or services to buyers in 106 countries, supported by UK Trade and Investment.
Registration is quick and it’s easy to upload products or services. Other unique and valuable services are planned including full eCommerce functionality and a fully managed storage and international fulfillment service.
The key benefit for SMEs showcasing their products or services on GreatBritishStore.com is the global support offered by UK Trade & Investment; each member benefits from UKTI global marketing initiatives in 106 markets, and all products and services will be actively promoted worldwide through each British Consulate, Chamber of Commerce and by all associated regional organisations, partners and sponsors.
For global buyers, GreatBritishStore.com provides the quickest and easiest way to source British designed or made products and services in one place. Buyers can register to be informed of new relevant products and services as they are added, as well as posting specific requests to be matched with suppliers.
GreatBritishStore.com is the place to be for any business serious about growing their sales through exporting; professionally promoting their products or services round the clock to buyers worldwide, including agents, wholesalers, distributors and retailers.
Nick Lewis, co-founder and Director of GreatBritishStore.com comments: “We believe we can add at least £3.6 BILLION of export turnover by 2020 as a result of launching GreatBritishStore.com, simply by allowing qualifying SMEs to tap into the unrivalled UKTI global marketing machine. Our research with SMEs has confirmed the need for this unique UKTI supported platform – they think it’s great news! As an exporter myself, I wish GreatBritishStore.com had been available when I launched my product to the world 10 years ago.”
Paul Noon OBE from UKTI who has championed GreatBritishStore.com comments: “GreatBritishStore.com, supported by UKTI, provides a new and exciting opportunity to get British produced and designed products and services in front of global buyers. UK companies make great products and deliver world beating services, and GreatBritishStore.com will help them find new markets and sell more products and services overseas.”
