Top 4 Trades of February

At the beginning of each new month, we like to go back and see what the Top 4 Trades were from the previous month. This way, we know what our clients are looking for and how trade is helping them in their daily lives.

The Top 4 Trades from February were:

Roofing

Keeping a roof over your head can be pricey, especially if you need to replace your roof. The national average prices for a roof replacement can range from $260 - $700 per square depending on the roofing material you select, the size of your roof, and the roof type. For example, a new asphalt shingles roof for a typical 2,000 sq. ft single-story ranch house can range in price from $8,500 - $16,500 fully installed. IMS saved our clients some serious cash this month because they used their trade dollars for their new roofing.

Billboards

If you are looking to increase your business’ visibility, consider billboard advertising! In a recent study its been shown that 71% of drivers consciously look at billboard messages and 26% of that population noted the phone number written on the billboard and 28% noted the website address! Think about that. You could be bringing in 26-28% more customers with one billboard. If you are worried about the cash investment though - don’t! Use your trade! Contact your broker today and ask how you can get a billboard using trade.

Property

Typically, you probably use your trade dollars on “normal things” - dentist, restaurants, office supplies, etc. However, we do occasionally have amazing properties and land for sale that you can use your trade to purchase. If you want to be notified when we have land for sale on trade, contact your broker so they know you’re interested and looking!

Logo’d Items

Do you need to rebrand or freshen up your company look? IMS can help you personalize items such as t-shirts, aprons, folders, pens, name tags, hats, face masks, and more, with your company logo and information! If you think it’s time for this update, call your broker!


Isn't it amazing what trade can do for you?
