With the advent of the internet and the prevalence of social media, more and more companies are finding it easier and easier to conduct their businesses internationally. International markets are literally a click or a tap away now, and depending on your industry you might already be doing business in countries across the globe.
While conducting international business might open your company up to untapped markets and profits, it also carries with it certain complications. Not the least of which is communication.
