Although IMS is not an employment agency, we can connect you with businesses who can address your staffing needs. Outsourcing your tasks and projects is one way to eliminate the costs associated with full-time employees. We have sales and leadership consultants and delivery services. There are answering services, social media companies, desktop publishers, and writers.

Certainly your products and/or services are a good portion of your wealth. Don’t let them lie dormant. Now is the time to concentrate fully on utilizing this alternative currency to save cash.
A great way to begin is to set a goal to look for additional ways to use IMS. Set up a conference call with your trade broker and design a month-by-month sales and purchasing plan. It’ll help combat the competition and ease your cash-flow problems, as well as enhance your control of those business expenditures that keep growing despite the economy.
Once you develop your sales and purchasing plan, be sure to implement it. Designing a plan and taking no action on it has about as much impact as a barrel of water going over Niagra Falls. Call your broker today to get started!
