Does the U.S. Federal Government have any programs to help advertise my products overseas?

Commercial News USA (CNUSA) is a catalog-magazine distributed outside of the United States, free of charge to buyers, through U.S. Embassies/Consulates and trading partners worldwide. It is the official United States Department of Commerce showcase for American-made products and services. Each issue reaches an estimated 400,000 readers worldwide in 176 countries. Exporters can advertise U.S. products and services in CNUSA by calling Associated Business Publications International at 1-800-581-8533, visiting the website or contacting local Department of Commerce U.S. Export Assistance Centers (USEAC). A list of USEACs is available at Exoport.Gov by clicking on “Find a Local U.S. Office” or by calling 1-800-USA-TRAD(E) (1-800-872-8723) and speaking with a Trade Information Center (TIC) international trade specialist.

International Catalog Exhibition Program is a low-cost, efficient way for small and medium-sized firms to obtain sales leads throughout the world without leaving the United States. The U.S. Commercial Service trade specialists located in international markets will translate your company profile into the local language, display your marketing materials, collect sales leads from interested local buyers, and then assist you as you follow up with the local contacts. For more information on the International Catalog Exhibition program, contact Export Promotion Services at (202) 482-3973 or visit the website.

The Export Yellow Pages is used by foreign buyers as a reference tool to find U.S. goods and services. This service enables U.S. firms to present their products to a worldwide audience at not cost. U.S. firms can register their business profiles on their website for free.
