What’s the value – What’s the ROI?
We will help you grow into one additional European country. Your most likely local growth is just a very positive side effect.
Let’s assume you are running a small manufacturing company with 75 employees, selling some machinery equipment and generate 5 Million Euro per year revenue and no profit today. You may feel there is no room for such an investment. We help you expand into one other European market and generate 5% of your revenue, Euro 250,000 after one year. At that stage you have no additional employee, just the added material cost for the products you produce and the Euro 24,000 investment in your alternative growth strategy. That’s your ROI.
The added value has multiple facets: First you learned to deal with social media in general and leverage it for a growth strategy in particular. In the following years you will learn to expand further, grow further and hire people in the local offices where you expanded to – or you decide to work with partners so you may hire a partner manager and give the partners the opportunity to hire based on their expanded portfolio. By growing within the EU you don’t have to worry about export regulations, export fees and other cost involved. This will provide you with a strategic stepping stone to actually do real export in the future and expand into other non EU countries and other continents.
Zero Budget Expansion
If you want to do everything yourself, you can. We provide enough free material and information events that should allow you to create your own alternative expansion strategy. Digital Sunrise Europe is a none profit organization and we are here to enable you and inspire you to grow. The reason we offer the starter kits is for those who don’t want to go through a period of experimentation and instead go forward quickly with a team of experienced people avoiding any potential risks and mistakes.
