No matter what business you're in, the Smarter Barter concept is a powerful money making strategy.
After 10 years in the barter industry, firstly as sellers and buyers, then as brokers, and finally as searchers for the best formula for a barter concept, our executive team decided to open their own barter business concept. After three years of research, development, trial and error, then more trials and even more trials, Smarter Barter has evolved into a Barter Exchange unlike any other. Smarter Barter is, in short, a phenomenal opportunity for any business in today's economy flanked by uncertainty. In essence, Smarter Barter can make things that seem out of reach, or impossible to attain, possible. It's an empowering tool that enables you to do things that you normally can't do if you're short of cash, or if you don't have a line of credit at the bank. But above all, the Smarter Barter system is a dynamic "vehicle" you can use immediately to link-up with other traders and exchange a host of vital (and not so vital) goods and services, so you're no longer dependent upon your cash the way you used to be.
Why 'Smarter Barter'?
Firstly we need to explain general bartering principles
What is traditional barter?
Barter is the exchange of goods and services without the use of cash. If you ever traded your skateboard for a cricket bat, you've bartered. If you've provided legal advice for a car service, you've bartered. These are examples of bilateral barter between two parties. The drawback of these transactions is that both parties need to want each other's products or services at the same time.
This is a system whereby multiple parties do not have to exchange goods and services directly between each other. Using a barter currency, controlled by a barter exchange, members of the exchange can trade with fellow members when they like, buying now, selling later, and vice- versa. Smarter Barter is a revolutionary new multilateral system designed for business customers.
Why do it?
Quite simply, barter saves you cash
- You pay for the goods and services you need with what you have to offer.
- Membership in the trade exchange generates new business from fellow members you would not normally have.
- Your client base will expand geographically. Fellow members will be willing to travel to you, or order from you online because you will save them cash.
- You increase your wealth.
Why Smarter Barter is better for businesses?
Most barter exchanges insist on 100% Trade for all transactions. For high profit margin businesses, and service providers where the main cost is their time, this is workable; cash flow is not greatly used up, and the Trade dollars generated can in turn be used to buy similar high profit margin goods or services. However, for a business that works on a much lower profit margin, the cost of generating a trade dollar makes it unviable. How have we 'levelled the playing field', encouraging businesses with huge variations in profit margins to trade freely and beneficially with each other.
Part Trade: Suited to businesses that have a high cash cost per sale. These members charge a combination of Cash and Trade per sale.
Full Trade: Suited to businesses where there is low cash cost per sale. All sales are at 100% Trade
Examples of barter with Smarter Barter
Jane owns a furniture shop. As a Part Trade Member, Jane advertises a leather lounge on the Smarter Barter website for $1500 Trade and $1500 AUD (her normal cash selling price is $3000).Within a couple of days, the lounge is sold to a fellow Member.
The wholesale cost of the lounge is $1500, so Jane has got her 'money back' with the cash component, and now has $1500 SB profit to buy goods/services either on-line or in person with any other Smarter Barter Member!
IT'S THAT EASY!
Tom owns the Beach Hotel. With an occupancy rate of 60%, he covers his costs and makes a small profit, but if only he could fill some of those empty rooms! A friend suggests trying Smarter Barter. Initially sceptical, Tom soon discovers it costs nothing to join, so he decides to investigate.
He notices he can purchase cleaning products, and a local laundry is capable of servicing his linen, paid for using these so called 'Trade dollars'.
Tom calculates that since his cash customers cover his costs, any extra business will almost all be profit. He joins Smarter Barter as a 100% member to test it out.
Within 1 month, Tom fills 20% more rooms, and demand is growing all the time.
Tom buys cleaning products from Cosmic Cleaning, an 80% member. Usually spending $5000 a year, the price is now $4000 Trade Dollars, $1000 cash, a saving of $4000 cash!
“That takes care of the laundry, I was thinking about changing to a Smarter Barter accountant, then renovating a few rooms”….
