The beginning of a new year presents the ideal time to start up a business in a growing industry like barter, which flourishes both in good and bad times.
Naples, FL (PRWEB) December 29, 2011
As a new year begins, entrepreneurs worldwide are searching for creative marketing solutions, such as the barter system, to help improve business profits. Many successful small business owners actively transact trade transactions, using it as a marketing tool to increase business.
A barter exchange serves as a business-to-business network to facilitate trade transactions among business owners - without the need to arrange an even valued, one-on-one direct trade.The barter concept is a profitable answer for companies which have excess inventory, time, space or services. A trade exchange network operates both as a marketing agent and bank of sorts, setting up a currency or unit of payment referred to as a Trade Dollar. Member business owners sell to and purchase from other member businesses in the network using Trade Dollars. Each member agrees to accept payment in Trade Dollars versus cash. Business owners maximize their profits by selling available inventory or vacant billable hours to new clients, who are over and above their normal cash customers. With the trade dollars earned, each company may then purchase the goods or services they need – eliminating the need for cash and direct trades For the bookkeeping, brokering and marketing services provided, the barter company earns a transaction fee paid by the seller and buyer, along with a modest monthly administrative fee.
Barter reaches worldwide accessing most every business type and industry sector, generating $6 billion of business annually in the United States – with the bulk of business being transacted through exchange networks.
One of the most evident benefits of owning a trade exchange business is the low start up cost. To start up requires minimal overhead and inventory - factors which oftentimes are burdensome to new businesses.
There is no need to purchase a franchise, requiring a hefty up front cost and sharing revenues - or go through the trials and errors of starting one’s own trade network without the needed guidance.
