Why Should You Barter?
Almost every business has periods when cash flow and credit is tight. These periods don't stop the daily need for cash, marketing, inventory, and professional services. Even in good times, the need for marketing and new sales is constant. Prudent use of cash and resources are vital to the survival of any business regardless of its size, industry, economic situation or age. These factors should make barter a prudent use of your resources.
We provide businesses with a powerful long-term solution to exchange their inventory or business capacity for goods and services without the use of cash. In essence, we sell your goods or services for trade dollars. You then use the trade dollars to purchase almost anything for personal or business use.
Barter Saves Cash
When you purchase goods with our barter network, you spend no cash. These days that is a very good thing. Emergency and unexpected expenses occasionally hit every business. Those surprise expenditures can often be less damaging with barter. Barter is used to save available credit lines as well. Instead of using cash or credit, simply barter for some of your purchases. It makes sense!
Find New Clients with Barter
It is a fact that 95% of all barter comes from new customers. This means every barter transaction is a new-found opportunity for your business. These new clients increase buying power (more about that in a minute) and cash flow. It is like having a new sales and marketing representative working for only five percent. Unlike sales and marketing employees, you will not incur the additional cost of insurance, paid vacations or matching funds for social security. Increasing this benefit further, is the minimal effort required to manage your bartering. Our fantastic software and internet capabilities make every transaction simple. You can decide to barter only your highest profit items or excess inventory, further enhancing the benefits of barter.
Barter Increases Your Purchasing Power
Regardless of the type of business you are in, you purchase your own products or services at a wholesale or better price. With barter, your best discount can now be used to purchase items not in your line of business. Let’s say you are in the clothing business and you buy skirts for 50% off retail. Well when you need your air conditioner repaired, you pay full retail. This is not so when you are trading the AC work via the BarterPX network. Since you make purchases with trade dollars from new customers, you acquire trade dollars at the 50% off price you pay for skirts. You have extended your purchasing power in your line of business of skirts to air conditioning repair.
