Exporting to Europe: Not the Challenges You Think

If you plan to do sell your product or service in Europe the problems you encounter may not be the ones you expect. It’s easy to focus on perceived difficulties, such as the so-called ‘language barrier’, while not noticing the real pitfalls – until it’s too late. I learned three lessons the hard way: appreciate the different cultures, understand the value of quality vs. speed, and know which foreign language is key to your business.

If you hope to compete with local firms in Europe you must understand European business cultures. Notice the use of the word of the word ‘cultures’ – plural. When I first started doing business in Europe, three years ago, one of the first things I learned was that the European business environment is much more diverse than in the States. Despite the introduction of the single currency, Europe is not a single business entity. Different countries retain different ways of doing things. Like many Americans doing business in Europe for the first time, I learned this the hard way. After a number of awkward meetings and deals that mysteriously didn’t go through I began to understand that it was a bad idea to deal with Europeans like I dealt with people back home.

The American business model prevails in northern Europe – with the UK and possibly Germany representing the nearest thing Europe has to a US-style approach. Businesses in former Easter Bloc countries that have recently joined the EU are also very US-friendly. During the Soviet years America represented freedom; American business can now reap the rewards of that iconic status.

The rest of ‘old Europe’ is a little different and you should be aware of each country’s customs. Italy, for example, retains a way of doing business that might seem bureaucratic and patriarchal to Americans. Even Silvio Berlusconi – a good friend of US business – is known as ‘Papa’ Berlusconi in some Italian circles. In France, a history of civil libertarianism twinned with state control that stretches back to the revolution of 1789 has nurtured a business culture that favors consensus rather than individual leadership. It’s important to do your research – not only on a country’s business structures but also on its general culture and history. It’s even more important to get to know the people. If you travel to Madrid to cut a deal having never before set foot in Spain you are at a disadvantage.

Business people in old Europe have slightly different perceptions of what constitutes good practice from their US counterparts. Although it would be patronizing to say that a maƱana culture persists in southern European business, it is true that timeliness is not considered a virtue in the way it is in the States. For European business people, providing a quality product or service is much more important than adhering slavishly to deadlines or driving the hardest possible bargain. Because of this difference in values, Europeans often perceive Americans as being ‘pushy’ – when the Americans in question think they’re simply being businesslike.

When I first came to Europe I thought that the most important thing was to learn languages – I was wrong. Most European business people accept English as the lingua franca of international business. However, you don’t want to risk seeming ignorant. A reasonable level of conversational French or German, for example, will come in useful. I have found that many Europeans have a prejudice about perceived American ignorance of the outside world. Showing a little linguistic skill – and, more important, willingness – will be to your advantage.

My experience is that knowing the local language is particularly useful in France. The French have traditionally been very protective of their mother tongue. Today, many native speakers consider French to be in a state of crisis, attacked on all sides by international English – so your French hosts will warm to you quickly if you seem keen to speak it to them. Again, showing you are willing to try is more important than being fluent.

Even so, skills learned in language classes back home are useless unless basic cultural differences are understood. Once again, do your research: time talking to locals or reading about European culture and history will be well spent. Knowing a little history is especially important if you’re working in Greece or any of the nearby EU satellite states in the Balkans. Educated people there will often talk about events of a millennium past as if they happened yesterday. There is a perception all over Europe that Americans follow Henry Ford’s maxim ‘history is bunk’ – I made friends quickly when I disproved this prejudice.

The good news is that Europeans are more like us than they are different: the general cultures of both continents respects business and promotes honest dealing – but it’s important not to let the small differences cost you money.

MLM Europe – ACN – A Fast Growing Team of Great Reps With a Great Company Behind It

Just to be clear, ACN is a great company however I am not a representative and I will not forward you to any particular person. This is only my review of how ACN is doing (specially in Europe) and why I think ACN is a great company.

Today I will go into one of the companies here in Europe that is a growing at a steady pace. Obviously not only in Europe, ACN started out in the US however I would like to focus on Europe today.

ACN Headquarters here in Europe is based in Amsterdam just a 10 minute bike-ride from my apartment. I have been there several times, and yes, have been to a presentation and actually started with the business. I had a great mentor for the two weeks I was in the company until I ran into iLearningGlobal and fell in love… Shame that didn’t take that long…

I have some really close friends working at ACN headquarters and I know that specially the customer service behind their products is great. This is obviously very important since service is always the base of the foundation of the companies’ success.

Many new reps in ACN love the products and love the great value they can offer the customers. Specially the videophone is a great product and in most countries very new and a perfect way to get more and more people interested.

Marketing the ACN products is quite easy since customers and companies can save a lot of Euro’s or Dollars by using the services offered. Besides that, because of the service level many European customers are very surprised because the general CS in Europe needs to learn A LOT. Yes, the American Customer Service level that is being offered really helps building the business.

To build your business in ACN (and any other MLM company) it is important to offer your team members a good training in both product and marketing. Training in product is in any network marketing relatively easy however many MLM lovers come to me how to handle the marketing.

This is why it is important to be able to offer your team not only a product training and let them make a list of people to call and harass their family and friends but actually help them build themselves as a leader.

As I said I had a great mentor within ACN, probably the best motivator I have ever met however very much old school. Make a list of all the people you know or know you and then call them to ask if they need a lower phone bill. Of course this is great however we all know that specially in this business you want to build your team and work towards financial freedom.

So you need a system that is duplicable, a marketing system, a step by step blueprint to becoming an MLM (Internet) Marketing Pro. The idea is that by becoming an MLM Marketing Pro people will follow you. People follow leaders. This concept is called Attraction Marketing.

So ask yourself this question: What do the people really need, what are they looking for when they would start a part-time business?

Do you think they are looking to start a business? Do you think they are looking for more money? Or could it be they are they looking for freedom? Freedom of buying more stuff, freedom of not having to work, freedom to choose WHO they want to work with?

When people buy a drill, do they want a drill, or do they want a hole?

Another question:

When there are ten ACN reps in a row and nine of them are carrying a white sign saying: “THIS IS MY OPPORTUNITY FOR YOU, IT IS GREAT AND IT WILL MAKE YOU RICH”

And the last representative is carrying a sign saying: “I AM HERE TO HELP YOU CREATE A GREAT BUSINESS, THESE ARE THE DIFFICULTIES YOU WILL MEET AND HERE IS HOW I WILL HELP YOU TO CONQUER THESE DIFFICULTIES”.

Which rep would you choose? I hope you understand now what who you need to become…
