- A Basic Guide to Exporting - Exporting can be a lucrative field, but it's not something you can jump into without any training. Whether you're a beginner or a seasoned pro, you'll learn something from A Basic Guide to Exporting, published by the U.S. Department of Commerce, in cooperation with Unz & Co., Inc. This online guide has 16 chapters of practical information about: developing an export plan, market research, distribution, making contacts, licensing, service exports, shipping your product, methods of payment, financing strategies, cultural factors, delivery options, and more. The Guide is a few years old, and although some information may have changed, the basic principles still apply. This is something you should print out and keep on your desk for ready reference.
