BlackStorm Consulting

BlackStorm Consulting is a boutique growth consultancy firm that helps organisations grow through our extensive knowledge and by tapping on our network of alliances and partners. We scale businesses in Southeast Asia.

With Southeast Asia (SEA) gaining recognition for being a business hub, many companies are looking to hop on the bandwagon to step into SEA and grow. McKinsey reported that global goods trade had risen from 27% to 33% in recent years in Asia, showing the potential that SEA as a region can possess. The Association of Southeast Asian Nations (ASEAN) has become a formidable global opponent and is incredibly focused on making SEA a worldwide trading and business hub.

 

However, companies would most likely fail without a business plan, even upon successfully entering a market. After gaining the rights and connections to enter the industry, the company must sell its products to gain a strong foothold within SEA. Importantly, it has to incorporate current market needs into its products to speed up the growth and selling process.

 

In this course, learners will pick up how to cement their industrial position as they venture into a new region. They will also be guided on the useful methods to adopt and adapt to avoid pitfalls that have been made. Alongside the equipment of necessary knowledge, learners will also have their understanding tested.


Supplementary factsheets on prominent countries in SEA such as Singapore will also be provided to help gain a slice of the market pie.

 


COURSE OVERVIEW
In this course,


01. Understand Southeast Asia

Do not simply jump on the bandwagon of entering the SEA market. There is a need to analyse and understand why are companies doing so. Furthermore, it is essential to consider if introduced products will succeed under the current and future market conditions of SEA. This course will save you the expensive lesson and equip you well to gain a market share


02. Learn how to understand the market

Learners will understand the various factors to look for when deciding which country best suits your business needs. Failing to consider any of these factors will impair your business. Incorporating these factors into your decision-making process will aid learners in marketing your products to gain a sizeable market base. Additionally, it will help business owners anticipate the possible challenges they may face and think of solutions to root out the problem instead of wasting time and precious resources at the critical juncture


03. Market entry strategies to be adopted

Various market entry strategies that can be adopted will also be introduced to learners. The success of selling to the market hinges significantly on your knowledge of the best and the available methods. This will help business owners better communicate their business idea and plan to employees, who will then know how to succeed. By showing participants the possible ways of market entry, we believe that you will tailor our suggestions into your business plan, consequently smoothening your journey to enter the market
