Top 4 Trades of March

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 March were:

Business Signage

One of the more important items to have as a business owner is signage! If you are looking for a new outdoor sign - you can get it on trade. Do you need pop-up a-frame style signs for the sidewalks - you can get them on trade. Banners, window clings, wraps, and more, you can get on trade. Call your broker and let them know what you need!

Cement Work

According to HomeGuide the average cost to pour a concrete slab can cost between $4-$8 per square foot. That price may not seem bad until you do the math. A typical 10x10 slab can cost between $670-$930, a normal 12x12 patio could cost between $796-$1476. Curious about your driveway? Up to $3,360. A new garage pour? Up to almost $6000. Do you have that cash lying around? Even if you do, save it. Use your trade instead!

Vehicle

Yes! You can get vehicles on trade! It doesn’t happen often but it does happen! If you let your broker know that you’re shopping around for a vehicle, they can be on the lookout for you! And let’s not forget, you’ll be saving cash in the process.

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.



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