As a member of Bartercard, you have an extra highly effective marketing arm for your business. Most businesses employ salespeople, advertise, reduce prices or offer incentives to gain more customers. Our members benefit from local trade brokers who share their company’s ‘story’ with other interested members, every day.
In order to sell excess inventory, a business will typically discount it substantially, run dealer promotions or be forced to write it off. By using Bartercard, you sell your excess inventory at its normal selling price, thereby maintaining your price value going forward and negating the need to reduce profit margins.
Bartercard is a great way to increase customer spending or entice new customers into your business without using discounts is to ‘add value’ to your product or service.
If you are continuously having trouble collecting cash from one of your customers, you may want to consider accepting part or all of the entire amount outstanding in products and/or services. You can then trade these products and/or services with other Bartercard members.
Utilize the trade dollars that you are earning and the interest free line of credit you have been provided with to pay for expenses in your business.
By purchasing inventory from other Bartercard suppliers with trade dollars, you can expand your product lines. This opens up a realm of possibilities for your business by allowing you to add unrelated products and/or new lines that compliment your existing product or service offering that could then be sold for cash.
