Does anyone still barter?!

Given the current market uncertainties, cash, and cash flow have never been more critical. We have to consider various new options in selling and market development, and one option in Bartering — not simple guns for butter trade but creative solutions that benefit all parties. My brother has been bartering for years as he had built several businesses and he found it a great way to provide value to his clients (in his core competency) and get the same in return (value for value… not a bad deal).
It’s not complicated, but it does take flexibility and creativity. Practically anyone with a good understanding of value can become a successful barterer in a very short period of time. Better yet, the profits can come almost as fast… the return on investment can be amazing.

First, let’s define bartering:
In sum, bartering is a method by which two parties (or more) exchange goods or services for other goods or services, instead of using money (it’s a swap). We are going to try to take this one step further, so we get more creative solutions to get even better results.

Second, The benefit bartering :
There are many reasons to use a good barter exchange:
1. Greater purchasing power
2. Increased revenue
3. Preserving cash, some argue that you enjoy up to 80% savings on your exchanges.
4. More clients (both from the barter exchange and from cash-business referrals from barter clients)
5. Better cash flow
6. Greater marketing opportunities
7. Improved efficiency
8. Acquire needed items with the money you’ve already spent.
9. Finance major purchases interest-free for up to two years, and get the purchaser to carry the paper at a discount.

Third, determine your bartering leverage points:
You need to determine where you have leverage. For example, your company produces or sells a product. If there is a market for your product, you have a bartering opportunity. The items your company manufactures cost you a fraction of the retail price (what over parties value it at). Likewise, all of the goods and service you or your company needs also are manufactured at a fraction of the price you buy them at (you value them more than their cost structure).
