Most small and midsize U.S. exporters do not have a written export plan. Maybe this is a big reason why, according to figures from the Small Business Administration, only one percent of all U.S. companies export  . Lacking a plan, it’s easy to get discouraged and give up or to miss opportunities that having a strategy might reveal.
As part of the National Export Initiative and its goal of doubling U.S. exports in five years , you will find a link below for your staff and customers to a one-hour webinar on how to write an export plan from the U.S. Commercial Service of the Department of Commerce. The webinar describes how useful even a one-page plan can be.
