How US Businesses Benefit from Investing in Foreign Countries - Sophia Belnap - Blog

How US Businesses Benefit from Investing in Foreign Countries

Making strategic investments is one of the best ways to grow your company, whether you are a small business or a large corporation. One of the areas you can grow in is through making investments in foreign countries by purchasing real estate, partnering with local businesses and much more. These investments can offer you more benefits than you might realize as well as help the economies of both countries grow stronger. 

Diverse Economies 

Diversifying your portfolio is good for investors, whether they are private individuals or large corporations, because it helps keep you from losing everything if one stock, property or product depreciates. This same principle can be applied to investing in more than one economy. If the market for your products and services is struggling in one country, it might hold steady or show growth in another. Looking at Bahrain economics, for example, will show you a steady growth in many areas and would give you a good return on your investment. Income from these investments can be used to fuel innovations in markets which struggle or build up as a safety net.

New Markets

Expanding your company into new markets can help your company find a bigger audience for your products and services. If you can purchase real estate in the country as part of your expansion, you can get to know the local culture and open product lines to better meet the needs of customers. The easiest way to expand globally is through the internet but having a storefront and salespeople on the ground is a good next step. Once you have a footprint in a new country, you can be better positioned to see and qualify for opportunities. For instance, if you have a small storefront in Bahrain and the opportunity comes to develop a bigger property for your business, you will already have the contacts and legalities in place to take it.

Brand Exposure 

The more people have exposure to your brand, the more customers you can draw in as they need a product or service that you sell, or that a friend does. By having your brand available in multiple countries, you are expanding your global footprint and can increase your loyal customers while still targeting a narrow audience with your marketing. It can also help you gain a foothold in more markets as you track the brand awareness across the map.


Talent Access 

New locations for your company also mean more employees and new talent pools. This can help you recruit some of the best in the field without having to ask them to move countries. It also means you can partner with schools in those locations to train new talent. Bringing people from many different countries into your company as employees can help innovate across countries and economies while improving your business. Different talent pools come with different cultures, which can mean bringing fresh eyes and ideas to a problem. This leads to new innovations for your company as well as for your industry and the markets involved. 

Competitive Advantages

You can gain quite a few competitive advantages from expanding into a new market, especially if that market is a foreign one. The main one is the first-mover advantage. By being the first to move into a market, you can develop resources and brand recognition before your competitors can make their own expansion. You can also get an advantage with the access to different technologies and techniques. By the time that your competitors catch up in this new market, you can already be growing in another one. 

Investing on a personal or corporate level in other countries can be incredibly beneficial for you, your business and the economies of both countries. You can learn about new cultures and how your products and services can be tailored to meet their needs, find new talent pools and gain more brand exposure. International trade boosts the world in more than just financial ways, because sharing technology, techniques and innovations can lead to a better future.
