"The most important benefit a barter exchange offers to clients is incremental business. That's business with new customers that would not have happened without the barter network affiliation," said McDowell.

Summer dates have been slated for the informative and valuable three-day Barter Trainer barter business opportunity training program, presented by Tom McDowell in Cleveland, Ohio. As the troubled economy struggles to turns the corner, business owners are seeking out innovative marketing options such as the barter system to help step up their game. In fact, in recent years most small business owners have already engaged in some type of trade or barter transaction and consider it an essential marketing device to keep a competitive edge in their industry.

Is there an ideal business opportunity? Entrepreneurs ask themselves this question daily. Of course, the answer is no. But starting a nearly recession-proof barter exchange business comes closer to perfection than any other business opportunity out there. The barter system is a unique business opportunity, which has a low start up cost, provides a generous residual income and holds no territory limitations.

A barter exchange network business is a B2B clearinghouse designed to facilitate trade or barter transactions among businesses. The barter concept is a profitable solution for companies with available inventory, time, space or services. A trade exchange network serves as a marketing agent and bank of sorts, establishing a currency or unit of payment called a Trade Dollar. Participating businesses buy and sell from and to other participating businesses in the network using Trade Dollars. By accepting payment in Trade Dollars instead of cash, a business maximizes their efficiency by selling inventory or billable hours to new customers. Using the trade dollars earned, that company purchases goods or services they need - without paying cash. For the cash-saving benefits they provide, the barter company is paid a transaction fee percentage by both the seller and buyer, along with a monthly administrative fee.

"The most important benefit a barter exchange offers to clients is incremental business. That's business with new customers that would not have happened without the barter network affiliation," said McDowell.

Barter is a $6 billion industry in the United States and reaches worldwide touching virtually every business type and industry sector – with the majority of business being facilitated through barter exchanges.
