Smaller businesses often think that exporting is only for large multinational companies. But that's usually not the case. In fact, more than 97% of all U.S. exporters are small and medium-sized businesses employing less than 500 people.
What's really surprising is the number of businesses that aren't exporting. According to the U.S. Department of Commerce, less than one percent of the 30 million companies in the U.S. actually sell their products internationally. Many of these firms could benefit from exporting, but have yet to do so.
