Hands On – We have ground presence in Turkey. This means intelligence. We can verify the actors in the business and understand 'who is who'.
Turkish business culture has not yet accepted completely the online ways of doing business. Most of the manufacturers do not have online presence.Even the big ones. They believe in the face-to-face traditional trade. The smart businesses attend trade shows in Turkey or abroad. Most of them can not communicate in English. They expect the customer to come 'discover' them. Even the tourism motto of the state is 'Turkey-Discover the potential'
Textile sourcing is in Istanbul, furniture in Bursa and carpets in Gaziantep. Sourcing in the right region will save you a lot of dollars, time and grant you the ease of logistics. Knowing how to get the best price from a manufacturer and negotiating in the right way are steps to success.
Finding sellers of your products is also half the fun. If you’re in a position to travel and explore, do it! It’s a great opportunity to expand your horizons. However, beware of mistakes that can lead to huge troubles.
