Open up business through business organisations
The UK has a variety of business organisations on a local and national level that can be leveraged to promote the value of language services for exporters and the role of ATC members as the go-to partners of choice for internationalisation. These business organisations can also be good centres for networking, raising awareness of the expertise of ATC members, and for forging connections with new clients.
The ATC’s new Commercial Collaborations Guide to Business Organisations introduces the British Chambers of Commerce, the Department for Business and Trade, the Institute for Export and International Trade, Local Enterprise Partnerships, and the Federation of Small Businesses, and what they offer in terms of export advice, showing clear openings for ATC members to work in partnership to provide expert language services.
Language capabilities are a key driver for export success
The ATC’s LO-C 30 research shows convincingly that language capabilities are a key driver for UK SME export success, proving that SMEs making use of language capabilities are 30% more successful in exporting than those that do not.
ATC members can use LO-C 30 messaging to promote the value of language services to boost international import and export success. LO-C 30 resources include a summary report, a management report, and an SME brochure, making it easy for you to choose the format most appropriate to your action plan.
By sharing this research with clients, you can open commercial conversations around ROI on language capabilities, profiling your services as the gateway to export and internationalisation success.
Action of this type has multiple benefits for both your company and for the ATC as an association. It positions your company as an expert provider of information, guidance and commercial solutions while also promoting ATC members jointly as the highest calibre go-to partners for language support.
