An Essex-based entrepreneur and member of the British Exporters Association (BExA) has launched a website aimed at helping UK businesses of all sizes to export with clarity and confidence – secure in the knowledge they have ticked the boxes that should put them in pole position for success.
The Export Hub www.theexporthub.com is the brainchild of Andy Moylan, a businessman and multi-award-winning entrepreneur with 25 years’ experience working with companies in the UK with an appetite for overseas growth. Moylan has assembled a team of people with decades of complementary experience to contribute to the website. All bases have been covered – export funding, marketing and sales, debtor protection, distribution, business development, credit management and more. The site will feature fresh content each week from key people of influence; each one sharing their tips on exporting. This includes the Managing Directors of UK and international businesses sharing their export journey in a series of candid interviews.
Speaking about the launch of The Export Hub, Moylan said: “This project has been 12 months in the making. I wanted The Export Hub to be fresh and different to anything currently available, with the emphasis on providing practical information and tips with access to further services if required. Access to The Hub had to be simple and unambiguous so there’s no charge for accessing the site, no requirement to provide email address details and no fees. A person can visit The Export Hub as often as they want. Every week they’ll discover new articles, new tips and new interviews, contributed by people passionate about exporting and incredibly knowledgeable in their field. This includes fellow BExA members who want to share their knowledge to benefit other businesses.”
Regular contributors to the site include the international bestselling business author and CIM Fellow Dee Blick, global insurer Atradius, global export compliance brand SGS and The British Franchise Association. Entrepreneurs from overseas will share the dos and don’ts of exporting to their country, starting with South Korea in what makes for a truly fascinating article, alongside the founder of the global success story K-Seal and the Netherlands-based brand JLM Lubricants – another success story with exports in over 40 countries and rising.
“Companies can also access our unique Export De-Risk Model at no charge and actually work with us, again at no charge, to determine how their export score can increase to a level that would attract funding and significantly reduce risk,” said Moylan.
“It’s estimated that 90% of future growth will be transacted with emerging and challenging markets. UK exporters must ensure they are best placed to take advantage of this growth. There has never been a better time to export, especially in the post-Brexit era where the favourable exchange rates are stimulating overseas demand. Our goal is that The Export Hub will help companies realise their exporting ambitions and I am excited to see how we can work with BExA and fellow members to achieve this,” concluded Moylan.
