Bartering is the act of providing your products and services to someone and getting something in return from that person without using money. This can be useful to many businesses, for a variety of different reasons. If you’re looking at ways to conserve cash, incentivize employees and explore new networks, barter is for you. This is especially useful in times of economic downturn or even just starting out as a business. The Exmerce Barter Network is also a great resource for finding new people to interact with. By leveraging barter you will be able to do all of the following (and more!):

Find new customers

Whether your business is just starting out or your business is well established, joining a Barter Exchange Network like Exmerce is a great marketing tool. As a result of joining a Barter Exchange Network, you will be able to find new customers and interact with businesses that you may not have had the opportunity to. Our network currently boasts over 500 Calgary businesses. So that’s 500 potential connections, collaborations and customers. Exchanging with those businesses will allow for more word of mouth and referrals even beyond barter transactions. There are also opportunities to potentially collaborate with those businesses as well. Plus, our end goal is always to bring in more customers for our businesses, and that means you too!

Save your cash

Since bartering does not require money, you can acquire things you may not have been able to do by trading services and products you already have. Do you need some lumber for a project or a couch to fill a room for example? Barter allows you to obtain products and services when you do not have the cash on hand for them.

In the context of a start-up of small business, barter provides a great cash flow alternative for things that might not be in the budget otherwise. Advertising, for example might be out of the question, but with barter you can advertise across a variety of our print and media outlets.

Fill your downtime

If your business is running slow, and you are not able to move your product or provide services barter is a great tool. Or even if you’ve just got too much stock on hand or are having trouble booking a particular time slot. You will be able to move your products and services and exchange them for something you actually need. Additionally, you are able to do this while getting your name out there. Now if that’s not a win-win we don’t know what is!
