Build the call list, set the appointments
Appointment setting in Russia
Market analysis and appointment setting is a necessary preparation for many core business development activities in Russia. For example:
We have unique capabilities to do this for goods and linked services as we have a hugely effective resource in our subscription to the Russian Customs Service database and our in house database management system to make sense of the data.
Our basic technique to assist a goods exporter is to identify importers of a particular HS Code that you choose, the volumes they buy and the prices they buy at. This applies even if you are not engaged in exporting to Russia as this identifies your competitors (including locals strong enough to export) and their prices.
If your target market are not imports or exporters but service companies or local producers then we have access to the Russian tax databases and about 20 other databases that provide additional information linked to tax identification number. Again we can build a call list although by the nature of the information, less precise than the customs data. These databases allow us to perform some basic due diligence on your business partners.
Many good leads are lost because of a slow follow up, often due to a lack of resources. We can help you keep the ball rolling.
After the initial appointments, the sales closing process becomes less predictable as it depends on the industry, the companies involved, locations and so on.
We can provide part time, temporary interim management for you to follow through on these opportunities at an appropriate scale.
