HELPFUL lh~lS IN RESPONDING 10 FOREIGN 1RADE LEADS


Based on comments from firms to Foreign Agricultural Service representatives aboard,
there are two main reasons companies are unsuccessful in their attempts to develop
trade relationships from opportunities such as those presented in this issue -
delays in responding to trade inquiries and ineffective correspondence. The
following guidelines may prove helpful when responding to trade inquiries.

ALWAYS REPLY QUICKLY

USE 1ELEX. lelex is the communication mode expected by most foreign buyers. If more
details are required, a brief telephone call is also an effective way to indicate
your interest. Delay gives the edge to your competition. Unless otherwise specified
by foreign inquiry, correspondence in English is acceptable.

ALWAYS RESPOND LOMPLE1LLY

ON YOUR FIRM. Furnish bank and trade references, pertinent company, history, and
relevant exporting experience. It is also useful to mail a copy of your annual sales
report. Establish your firm as a reliable source of supply.

ON YOUR PRODUCt. Supply complete product information. Use the metric system of
measurement. American standard weights, measures and dimensions have little meaning
in most overseas countries. When responding by mail, descriptive and illustrative
brochures should be included, but not relied on, to do the whole selling job.

ON YOUR PRICE. Include full price information when possible, and a delivery date.
Quote the price requested or a CIF price (cost, insurance, and freight) to a port in
the inquirer's country. A freight forwarder will be able to help you determine
insurance and freight prices for the products involved. Specific terms of payment
should be clearly stated. Information provided should, whenever possible, be
sufficient for the customer to place an order without the delay of further
correspondence.

ALWAYS REPLY EFFEC11VELY

BE SPECIF1C. Ask specific questions to pinpoint buyer's needs. If the inquiry does
not clearly specify products or services desired, let the buyer know what you have
available. Do not neglect imprecise inquiries.

BE DISCRETE. Seek credit data from sources other than the overseas firm. Personal
requests for credit information are considered discourteous in many countries. Such
information is easily obtained from reliable and objective sources such as your
bank's international department.









BE ORIGINAL. When replying by mail, do not use form letters. Form letters
are frequently discarded by overseas buyers. Keep correspondence friendly and
interesting. Avoid using slang. Create an impression of personal and
exclusive interest.

BE ALLURA1I. Check the correct address of the foreign firm, whatever mode of
reply. When writing, do not discard the envelope until you are sure the
complete address (including the country) is on the firm's letterhead. 1he
return address should provide your company's full name and address, including
"U.S.A". After the zip code. Include your cable address and telephone number.

BE SMARI. Do not disreguard inquiries with less-than-perfect English. Quite
possibly, it is a legitimate sales lead but the writer knows English only as a
second language. Also, if the printing quality of the stationery does not
meet standards you ordinarily expect, keep in mind that printing standards in
your correspondent's country might be quite different. Despite first
impression, the inquiry.may be from a reputable, well-established firm.

FOLLOW-UP. If a reply is not received within a reasonable time, follow-up
with a second telex. You may have missed the original export opportunity, but
may still be able to begin a business relationship.
