The Art of Bartering:
A creative business practice that keeps the cash flowing; Without Cash
Barter-Trade has been around for a very long time. In recent years, money has been tight, and the practice started flourishing again. Today, thousands of individuals and trade clubs around the world are doing millions of dollars in goods and services for their personal use and that of their business without the use of cash.
eBarter Exchange can help you not only in your business but also in your day-to-day family life.
You will feel less stress in knowing you don’t “have” to work those extra hours to make ends meet.
- Barter does not replace what you are already doing on a daily cash flow basis. Implementing barter for some of your deals optimizes your resources. It will allow you to use something you’ve already paid for instead of cash as an exchange keeping money in your pocket available for other uses.
eBarter Exchange can help you in your juggle to climb the ladder at work so you can feel like the lion/lioness you are. Hear me roar! I can succeed at work as well as at home.
- Through the exchange of the goods and services with others eager to trade, you extend the numbers of businesses you reach.
- You will build relationships with new, loyal clients
- You can Create Buying and Purchasing Power
Bartering is an Art. “It is about Revising Assets and Recycling them into something of use.” Is there a way for you to provide a unique value that allows you to “bank” barter dollars to accumulate and use for a larger purchase?
Barter is the exchange of something of value for the equivalent value – No cash is involved. To participate, you need to have something that is of value to someone else to exchange for something of equal value for you.
- It is a Win/Win situation.
Two common concerns are, what if you don’t need what the other person is willing to trade and will it be useful for me?
There may be times when you require a service or product and the cash flow is allocated to other uses. A Barter-Trade exchange could be the perfect solution. Think creatively in offering your “excess” products, time or services to receive what you need when you need it.
Barter-trade communities have and will continue to flourish. A Trade community produces “Barter exchange dollars or vouchers” that are used within that community. (Some communities even have agreements between communities to extend the value of your barter trade even further.)
This is all Tax legal. In fact, the IRS has a Barter Tax Center and requires you to keep records and report your transactions the same as you would your cash deals. You are not evading taxes. Barter-Trade is another tool in your business toolbox that allows you to leverage more out of your current marketing expenditures.
Let me help you create a business practice that keeps the cash flowing, without cash so you can feel worry-free and have a Booming Successful Business.
