    I would have sales reps in other countries. They will know the culture, what is hot and what is not, have better language skills, etc. You could also offer blind drop shipping instead. A great website with a US office would be beneficial. You can even have an affiliate program.

    i think try to go to other country's embassy to see their trade representative. They have a great resource of buyers who may be interest in your product.

    become in a regular in the many car audio forums. And sell direct to the forum members with discoutned pricing. Not exactly a huge .com, but would move some product.

    Ebay? I think the idea that join the car audio forums is not bad, my boss said he will take part in the auto exhibition in Kazakhstan this Aprily,but I don't want to wait that time to have order,it is too long for me...

    What kind of product do you sell? Major Name brands or the cheap no name brands. I personally wouldn't buy a cheap no name brand for car audio. If you sell major brands, please PM me a price list with discounts and any info such as buy-in, % off jobber, etc. . .

    Will you blind drop ship products? Do you have a website? Do you have an affiliate program? Did you contact any wholesalers / retail store owners in the US? All great places to start.

    I almost got into the retail car audio biz with a friend who has been doing it for 15 yrs. but the online prices are a business killer these days. So either you have a low price to sell online or in store, or you need to have a reputation for good installations or have some corp accounts with car dealers otherwise it will be a tough biz to run.
