Speak EUROPEAN to sell to Europeans

The ECIB translates your documents, commercial and technical, for the European Union countries to which you are exporting.

To help you sell in European Union countries, the ECIB adapts your sales literature to suit the culture of European countries (languages, traditions,customs, contradictions...)

Your product is just manufactured.
It satisfies a real need and its intrinsic qualities are truly remarkable.
- One can expect that it will rapidly find its place in the international market,especially in Europe.

This last, vital phase depends on your satisfying two conditions:
- The product must be known to one and all, this depends on advertising.
- The product must be liked universally, this is where our experts get into action

The ECIB assists at two major levels:
By the creation of sales literature presenting the product.
- The information provided in this literature is of a practical nature, adapted to suit the language and the culture of the country, for a quick and effortless understanding of the main features of the product and the advantages it offers.
- The object of this literature is to convince the potential buyer of the necessity to buy the product.

2- After the purchase, enabling him to use the product without difficulty, by means of a User's Manual, also well adapted to the customer's needs.
- The object is that the customer should never regret having bought the product.
- With our assistance, you can strengthen customer loyalty and increase sales by "word of mouth" publicity.
- The buyers of the product can tell their friends, "It is a good product, I understood at once how to use it, it is very easy."

In order to succeed in its task, the ECIB uses associates
- who are totally aware of the country and environment where the product(s) originate(s)
- who have an excellent knowledge of the language and environment where the product are to be sold (European Union countries)
- who have a thorough knowledge of the product and its usage.

In order to prepare an estimate for your consideration, you should send us the following :
- An example of the product you wish to export to the European Union
- Sales literature, user's manuals and other materials in your language
- List of target countries in the European Union.
