Eriksen Translations Helps Women Business Owners Reach Their Audiences in the Global Marketplace
Brooklyn, NY – Eriksen Translations Inc. (www.eriksen.com) is proud to support women-owned businesses by providing complimentary copies of Laurel Delaney’s new book, Exporting: The Definitive Guide to Selling Abroad Profitably, to attendees at the Women Presidents’ Organization (WPO) 17th Annual Conference.
Laurel Delaney, founder and president of management consultancy GlobeTrade.com, wrote this book to equip business owners with the knowledge they need to take their companies to the next level of growth through exports. She believes that selling globally should be easy for any company to pursue, regardless of size. Her book helps entrepreneurs and small business owners market, sell, and fulfill orders internationally using both traditional methods and opportunities presented by the Internet.
Delaney quotes Vigdis Eriksen, the founder and CEO of Eriksen Translations, in Chapter 15, “Web Design with the World in Mind,” where she provides strategies for conveying cultural, linguistic, and business information to target audiences in a world that is becoming increasingly multicultural and multilingual. Vigdis Eriksen said, “To reach out to the world for business, your website should be flexible enough to adapt to other languages in the future. Build for global growth.”
The highly anticipated WPO Annual Conference, to be held April 23-25 in New Orleans, provides opportunities for successful women entrepreneurs from all over the world to share business strategies and experience, as well as learn from interactive seminars and inspirational speakers. Eriksen will provide complimentary copies of Exporting to all 800 attendees in their conference bags. As a woman-owned business enterprise that helps companies reach their global audiences, Eriksen is pleased to have this opportunity to provide a resource for women who are already in the international marketplace or looking to expand globally.
