Marketing - Business/Commerce (general)
English term or phrase: strike
Si parla di un'azienda che vuole espandersi e avere nuovi clienti. Il capo dell'azienda dice che é importante "to strike now" dato che il mercato é in pieno sviluppo. Colpire quì potrebbe avere il senso di manovra commerciale, ma non mi piace molto...come si potrebbe tradurre?

Grazie!
