Business Through Barter Depot
If every business person truly understood the countless values of bartering, the billion dollar explosion in America would be even bigger than it already is. It is thus imperative to further explain this wonderful business tool. Webster's Dictionary defines barter:
" To trade ( e.g., goods ) without the exchange of money." Think of the inner workings of barter as follows:
Suppose you're a dentist and join The Barter Depot (TBD). You want to have some work done on your office, specifically painting and carpentry. TBD's vast memberships includes painters and carpenters, so they refer a painter and carpenter to you, and you get them to do the job
They complete the work to your satisfaction and instead of paying them cash, they do the job on barter, in Iieu of cash or check, the painter and carpenter receive payment in full for their work through trade dollars. These trade dollars are equal to the amount of money they charged for their work.
In our example, if the painter charged the dentist $500 for his work, then the painter would receive $500 in trade dollars from TBD. He could spend that money with anyone else in the barter group. For instance, the painter might need a new brochure made so he uses his dollars to get a brochure done. If the amount for the brochure is less than $500 then he retains more trade dollars, if it exceeds $500 he is minus trade dollars.
TBD owner Joseph Prince says, " We not only find out what each of our members needs for their business, but we find out their personal preferences ( i.e. vacations) too."
Bartering is a valuable tool for business and pleasure. The trade dollars accumulated for your work can be used for either. It's like having a cash-less credit card available to purchase almost anything one would need, as TBD has hundreds of members in a diverse cross-section of business and services that are eager to trade products and services on barter. Simply put, barter combines the use of smart business people that remain faithful to one another.
