Virtual UK Business – a total solution to winning UK market sales.
Office, representation, local website, local address and phone number. Physical and on-line sales team, PR, e-marketing, mainstream advertising (TV, radio, press), stock control, distribution, after sales and technical support. All yours to test the market with and build your brand in the world’s 5th largest economy
You may have thought about entering the UK market, maybe via an agent, a distributor or direct sales from your home market. All have merits and drawbacks. None of them has the advantages of you having your own brand pro-actively promoting your business to 5 million businesses and over 63 million consumers.
Just as you buy in temporary staff until such time as you have enough work to create a full-time role. Copernicus offers you a local sales presence without the fixed cost of an overseas office, employee, infra-structure or long term commitment.
