How Do I Find Business Contacts In A New Country?
5/7/2019 at 5:19 PM ET
I am involved in a serious network marketing business (Zinzino) listed in Nasdaq (First North at Nasdaq Stockholm), which started up in my own country a few years ago. Now this company is going to expand into new countries, and I wonder which are the best ways to find/recruit serious business contacts/ new distributors in another country? Which tools/media etc?
Thanks a lot, Lars Laenn (email@example.com)

Lars, I would initially contact your own Government's Trade Commissioner in your country's Embassies or High Commissions in the country in which you wish to do business. Then you can do the reverse and contact the Trade Commissioners in the Embassies or High Commissions located in your own capital city.
Secondly, you could do a search on LinkedIn, using keywords related to your specific business activities. That should identify possible contacts for you.
Thirdly, you could approach Chambers of Commerce in the cities that you wish to target, who will generally be helpful in identifying possible business partners.

Another technique would be to use twitter. My impression is that a number of networking oriented people use twitter. You could think of topics of interest to those in your target market, and search for those in various languages. For example, "persuasion" in Italian is "persuasione" (according to Google translate). If I do a twitter search on that word, I get pages and pages of links and articles which I cannot read. But I would be willing to bet that there are some serious networkers (some of those links. Good luck.

For network marketing, I look at old fashioned face to face networking as the way to go. Find opportunities to meet people and work them toward being customers and then toward being partners promoting the product for you.
