Increase your market proximity

Generate your first sales by hiring and integrating your sales specialist in our Russian subsidiary for a 6-months trial mission.

Russians dominantly use oral communication rather than written as in Europe. They meet a lot face-to-face and if you want to sell big time, then talking in Russian is not an option, it’s a must.

To this end, working with a local sales representative is a very effective way of testing and growing your sales on the Russian market.

You will generate sales but also get instant market feedbacks about your products and customers, transparency in terms of prices, margins and insights about competition and market conditions.

6-months sales development mission

On your behalf, we hire, integrate, pay and manage within our Russian subsidiary and offices a qualified sales specialist for a 6-month mission. We provide him with equipment, support and network.

Advantages of this approach

  • No need to register a legal entity, yet you have an employee on the spot to represent you and develop direct sales
  • Having your own salesperson (as opposed to distributors/agents) brings a whole new level of market transparency, understanding and customer relationship
  • Your salesperson will benefit from our infrastructure, network, team’s support and best practices
  • Our company management on the spot (a Swiss expatriate) provides guidance, control and assistance to guaranty a smooth development

"One of our customers needed a quick and clear consultation regarding a custom problem to export their products to Russia. The team of Swiss Center Samara proved very effective by answering quickly to our questions not only with relevant and precise information but also within the budget agreed upon. I recommend their services to all companies looking for a competent partner in Russia".
