Exportise were present this morning at the launch of the Irish Exporters Digital Marketing Research & Insights publication, carried out by Voodoo on behalf of the Irish Exporters Association. A panel of involved professionals shared a lot of revealing and interesting insights and statistics regarding the digital behaviour of Irish exporting companies.
Hosted by William Fry at the Grand Canal Dock offices, we at Exportise were suitably enthused by the informative presentations and the opportunity to chat with our fellow exporters. And we could certainly recommend that you check out today’s presentation by Jamie Dowling, the managing director of VooDoo, which is available online here.

Multilingual communication as a tool for export growth… By Giovanni Giusti via Irish Exporters Association.
‘If exports are an important part of your growth plan, you need to be able to communicate with your customers in their language.

We at Exportise are very impressed with the recently launched Export Start Guide, a joint initiative developed by Invest Northern Ireland, Chartered Accountants Ireland and Enterprise Ireland, which guides businesses on the road to exporting – Export Start Guide.
It highlights the benefits of exporting and includes practical advice on selling internationally, along with real-world case studies taken from the experiences of companies that are already successful in overseas markets.
The approach advocated is totally in line with how we at Exportise work with our clients, particularly on the Export Planning side and the implementation of such plans. We hope it encourages many to consider exporting – and maybe also give us a call to assist them.
The Irish Exporters Association have put together a comprehensive submission to Government in advance of Budget 2015 next week (October 15).
