Ecuador Export Opportunity


Ecuador Export Update

Here is a note from Roberto Ribadeneira about Export Tours to Ecuador.

When you join the Export Tour from Ecuador, you’ll find that Ecuador is not only a beautiful place to visit, but is a good place to do business.

On this Export Tour, there is a wide range of products in various different towns north of Quito.  Let’s have a quick look at what we do before we show you the schedule.

Upon arriving to Quito (Ecuador’s capital), we will take you to Cotacachi, where we base our tours in search for amazing products.

You will be presented with lots of amazing artisans that create unique products of great quality.  There are hundreds of different items that we will explore and numerous ideas that we will share  with you.

Most of the craftsman that we introduce to you are people that live in rural areas, that are hardworking and that make their products by hand. This means that the quality is outstanding but also that we have the flexibility to make small orders and/or big orders.

Schedule

You will arrive at Quito’s airport, which is brand new and also the most important one in Ecuador. Depending on your time of arrival, we either take you to a hotel in downtown Quito (which is about 40 minutes from the airport) or travel from there directly to Cotacachi.

Cotacachi is one hour and thirty minutes north from Quito. The road is also new and there you will see a beautiful landscape surrounded by mountains. Cotacachi is warm during the day, a little cold at night, so bringing sweaters is recommended.

We will spend three full days exploring products and towns around Imbabura’s Province. Most of the towns that we visit are small and full of kind people. Most of the workers that we visit work from home.

After the three day tour, we will take you back to Quito if you like to stay there, but if you would want to explore other cities, we will take you to the airport in Quito.

If you are also interested in the flower business, we can show you a beautiful rose farm, that takes around 2-3 hours for the tour, so we recommend doing that if you are interested in that area of business. Most farms are in towns about 40 minutes north of Quito, either Cayambe or Tabacundo. It is a great experience, and you will get to see how they grow roses and the fields.

Extras

ecuador export

We also encourage people to bring ideas of products that you want to make and things you want to create. There may be purses that you want to design, hand made leather jackets or a certain wood carvings. There are also other ideas to explore like creating ponchos with your own University’s colors or bracelets with school’s colors.  Perhaps you want to engage in corporate products and want to have beautiful leather laptop bags with special logos, or different colors or a unique design.

You can talk to the manufacturers and get the pricing on items, timing of when they will be ready, and what they can do.

We will also show you how to calculate the pricing, how to do the packing and what better way to ship items from Ecuador to the USA. This way it will be easier for you to know the costs and put the right sales price for your customers.

ecuador export

All the contacts and information for everything that we see and all the manufacturers is yours. This will allow you in the future to contact them directly and work with them if you like. So you
will be able to work with the suppliers on your own if that is what you choose.

There are thousands of ideas that we can explore, and also hundreds of products that we can make. Not only you will find that working with people in Ecuador is a great experience, but also that we are able to create amazing homemade products for every need.

Once you get to see how people work and the help that everyone buying from them brings, you will get a better idea on the progress that exporting from Ecuador brings to this people. You will get beautiful products and in exchange people in Ecuador will work very hard, and also be rewarded with a better quality of life.

We do hope to get to see you soon on this business adventure.  Roberto

Ecuador Exports & Fair Trade


Ecuador exports can help promote fair trade.

The export business helps many of our readers earn and others, like…

this Ecuador family.  They are weavers who also make a paper like material.

Stagflation… rising prices in a falling economy is here… has been for some time, but is now more obvious.  The result are showing.

The September 13, 2011 USA Today article “Typical U.S. family got poorer during the past 10 years” by Dennis Cauchon and Barbara Hansen highlights this fact when it says (Bolds are mine):   A typical U.S. family got poorer during the past 10 years in the first decade-long income decline in at least a half-century, new federal data show.

Median household income fell 2.3% to $49,445 last year and has dropped 7% since 2000 after adjusting for inflation, the Census Bureau said Tuesday. Income was the lowest since 1996.

Poverty rose, too. The share of people living in poverty hit 15.1%, the highest level since 1993, and 2.6 million more people moved into poverty, the most since Census began keeping track in 1959.

Over the past 40 years we have seen our readership dramatically increase their green, social, organic concerns. However, during the downside of the economic cycle, people may have to change. When someone loses their job and finds it hard to get another, they stop thinking about whether a potential employer is using fair trade products in the goods. When a family is at risk of losing their home to foreclosure, they stop worrying about a hungry child in emerging nations.  When a person is starving… even the poorest quality food starts to look good.

We know that people are suffering because of the global economic shifts.  We see this from our readers every day.  We know that the global economy is likely to get worse before it gets better.  Economies ALWAYS have cycles.   We also know that those who are prepared do best during the downside of the cycle.

To help, we have expanded  our focus on surviving the loss of jobs and currency purchasing power though micro businesses.  Economic sluggishness creates extra opportunity in equities, real estate, commodities and for those who create their own micro business.

Yet we have tried to maintain a green… fair trade focus as well.

We have started a program to help our readers create their own micro business working with these businesses as introducers, dealers and distributors.

We started this micro business program for our readers with five businesses who offer products and services we love.

#1: Purely Green/Bio Wash

#2: Jyske Global Asset Management  (JGAM)

#3: Candace Newman Essential Oils

#4: Ecuador Roses

#5: Ecuador Export Products

Each of these products offers a special social benefit as well as income opportunity.

Ecuador roses and exports promote employment of the poor and Veriflora certified roses (those offered in the program) encourage fair trade, humanitarian, healthy,  employment.

The latest Ecuador export tour was recently completed and Bonnie Keough who conducts and continually expands these tours wrote:

This is my latest discovery for the export tour.  We visited a multi-generational family home workshop near Peguche.   There were at least 4 generations, maybe 5,  present for our visit.  Everyone was very gracious and welcomed us into their home.  Prices on the goods were very fair so the group gained an economic as well as cultural benefit and our purchases helped support eight families.  Their workshop is at the back of the house, not visible from the street at all.  They have several large looms used to weave scarves, ponchos and shawls in various materials and styles.  Many of the vendors at Otavalo market purchase goods from these folks to resell in their booths.

These shots taken by our friend and Super Thinking teacher, Glenn Sterling, shows how one never knows what to expect on an Ecuador export tour.

Glenn wrote:  This is a home near Peguche (in the town) where the family has a lot of looms and weaving equipment.  This woman has taken some paperlike material from a press and is letting it dry after being pressed.   The press is huge (she’s standing beside it).  Out back there is the canal from the lake where the women are washing clothing and there are many pups running around – hence the dog shots.

This paperlike making seems to be a sideline for them as the room in this picture is separate and adjacent to the weaving looms (a back room).  One of my favorites is the elderly lady entering the home from the light outside making her look like an angel.

What an experience.

This is why we are pleased to include Ecuador exports in our micro business program.

We provide three e-courses that can help you develop your own micro business that we designed to help you earn anywhere you live in the world.

International Business Made EZ ($299)

Self Fulfilled – How to be a Self Publisher ($499)

Event – Full How to Earn With  Your Own Seminars ($349)

When you complete one of the courses above and  attend one of our International Business and Investing Seminars  (the next is October 7-8-9), you will be qualified to enroll for referrer, distributor and dealer programs for Ecuador Imbabura Export Products  PLUS any other mico business programs we develop., Purely Green, Bio Wash… Jyske Global Asset Management  (JGAM)… Candace Newman Essential Oils… and Ecuador Roses… PLUS any other mico business programs we develop. 

You can learn more about  our October 7-9 North Carolina Course here.

Or you can attend an Ecuador Export Tour instead of the October seminar. Details below.

We have started the beta micro business program.  The good news is that we are not charging a penny more more.  Our International Business Made EZ online course and our International Business Made EZ seminars remain the same price though we’ll now offer subscribers an entrance to doing business with these many, special turnkey businesses that offer income, as well as social and environmental opportuntities.

The overall service can bring you the following benefits:

#1: Connect you via our our online course “International Business Made EZ” to here and now specific business opportunities.

#2: Keep you in touch with other readers in the program, share business tips, ideas contacts and even website support in some instances.

#3: Local lead assistance.  We can zero in as close as 20 miles to a location so for example we can send a separate email to every reader within 20 miles of the address of a referrer.  And although we won’t release the names in that area, we can send them a note of the opportunity.

We have general plans at this stage but find the best way to develop systems is to refine through action. We expect our beta program this year to clarify how we can best help our readers develop successful micro businesses.

Step one is to order one of the three online programs.

International Business Made EZ ($299)

Self Fulfilled – How to be a Self Publisher ($499)

Event – Full How to Earn With  Your Own Seminars ($349)

You must complete one of the online business development courses above and attend an International Business and Investing Seminar to be eligible.

Most readers  who enroll in our Online Courses and attend our International Business and Investing Seminar have their own business in mind.  Our courses and seminars will help make your business ideas work better.   Those who do not have a business idea can join in our turnkey micro business program.
