    Hi guys! I have a service which I want to produce in Norway , Sweden and Denmark, but I don't know to find clients in these countries. Maybe someone is doing business there and could give some advices how to find clients in these three countries? It would be very interesting to discuss about that:)

    If you don't live in those countries but want to advertise to this people, you could always use geotargeting in PPC networks like FaceBook.

    i would also check out vk.com and see if they have ads targeted to that area.

    this weeks trend tends to be facebook, so u might want to look more into that if anything

    What is your service?

    Do you stay in one of the three countries?

    Viral marketing through mouth to mouth is powerful to advertise your service for free if you are around in the three countries.

    I have a good understanding of these markets and I can give you this advice:

    The standard idea would be promoting on different forums and communities - but unless you speak Norwegian, Swedish or Finnish yourself, you're not going to do so well with that.

    The best bet for you would be to contact the companies who have an official website. Simply collect a list of companies with websites, and send them personalized offers by e-mail. Try to make it clear how you can help them, include persons name or companys name that you're writing to, be as polite as possible and make sure you have good grammar. (more professional)
    If you do this properly then they will be glad to reply to you about what they think about your offer.

    Good luck!

    Actually Scandinavians don't have any problems with english. The main key is to gain their trust. So direct mailing is the best choice in your situation.

    Thanks for your answers. My business is outside these countries. The product is wooden staircases, so direct emailing strategy isn't relevant to me. I need somehow attract people from these countries attention, but I don't know how to do that. I can offer much better price than local staircases manufacturers. Perhaps I should try facebook advertising.

    Maybe you should hire a local guy who will be able to promote your product both offline and online. Because if you don't speak local language and you don't know the specifics of doing business in Scandinavian countries, it will be really difficult to find some clients there.

    To hire a local guy in Scandinavian countries will be too expensive for me because their earnings there are enormous.

    I think that commision agent agreement is the best solution for you. It's not so expensive as you think

    A salesperson working on commission is the way to go. Are you producing your staircases yourself? I know this is a hot market!

    Yes perhaps salesperson working on commission is the best way to find clients in these countries. I have a company with a few workers so yes we can say that I am producing staircases.

    Are you stationed in one of those countries? How would you go about shipping and assembly? Its quite expensive here. My best tip would be to get a person which is both into sales and is a carpenter.

    I would definitely look at Freelancer.com and Odesk.com for salesmen in those markets that are good at lead generation. Pay commission or hourly + commission and watch the leads roll in. Just make sure they are qualified through a rigorous interview process. I typically interview through Skype - video or voice chat. Let us know how it turns out if you are still pursuing this.

    Use google adwords, and drive targeted traffic to your product or service. So you can get clients immediately.
