People keep saying that it's complicated to do business in Brazil, but in most cases they simply confuse complicated with labor intensive.
Since we launched The Brazil Business thousands of business professionals from all over the world have been visiting our site and learned about our take on doing business in Brazil, but some people don't like us at all. We are about to destroy the market for people who have spent the last years charging thousands of dollars for giving people simple trivial answers to questions about business in Brazil.
We believe that everybody who is interested can very easily understand how to do business in Brazil.
Zooming for Information
Nobody should relay his further investments based on information found on a webpage, not even The Brazil Business. However, we encourage you to build as much background knowledge as possible before hiring an expert to help you on the last mile.
Zooming is all about looking for information from the correct perspective and here is how we recommend zooming if you are planning to import a product to Brazil:
- Visit our website to learn about how to import to Brazil
- Hire an expert consultant to analyze your specific product in the Brazilian market
- Hire a broker to actually import the product to Brazil.
In a world where new Brazil Business consultants are born every day, it's useful to educate yourself about the basics before asking assistance, at the end of the day it's not the consultant that is responsible for making the decisions it's you.
Avoid The Brazilian Sharks
São Paulo is located 760 meters over sea level, still you will find large groups of Brazilian Sharks here. They are often found in some type of service or information firm, the firm has probably been around for decades and the shark itself is either a Senior Advisor or some sort of partner in the firm.
The Brazilian Shark prefers to wear a dark color suit with matching tie, but is however not sharp looking. You will quickly figure out if you're dealing with a Brazilian Shark when talking to them. Brazilian Sharks cannot give you any information before you pay, and any question you ask is answered with "everything is so complicated in Brazil".
We have met many Brazilian Sharks and we recommend you to turn your back to them, keep searching and you will for sure find someone better.
