The Most Common Mistakes to Avoid
One of the biggest mistakes when expanding from your home market to an international market, is to just copy and translate what you already have done. Each market has its own specialties.

Break Through in a Crowded International Market
Think of this – You have online courses on how to create beautiful and delicious cakes. You also have a lot of competitors. Many of your competitors will want to get in front of your potential customers, with their message. So even if you have a valuable, genuine solution for your customer's needs, reaching out to the right people can be truly challenging in a global market. What can you do to have your cakes stand out?
Check These 4 Steps to Help You Stand out From All the Market Noise:

Many call this passion. If you can imagine and truly feel that you love what you do and want to bring over to others, you have found your WHY. This will give you the superpower to do what it takes to build, launch and get international success.
Step 2: Narrow Down Your Niche
You can be sure that many others offer an online course, similar to yours. Here is why it is smart to narrow down your niche. Instead of offering a cake course to everybody, you will profit if you go for a smaller segment, as specialistic part of cake-making.
