IMS Barter, unlike most other trade organizations, believes your goods are every bit as good on trade as they are for cash and deserve to be sold at your everyday selling price, not a discount. We encourage our member trade companies to sell to trade members no differently than selling for cash. In turn this means that you are receiving full value for goods and services you are providing.
And, because you are earning trade dollars on your goods and services at normal everyday selling prices, you are able to turn those earnings around to purchase items at your wholesale cost!
How does that work, you may ask? Well, you are selling your goods or services at a mark up, however you are buying goods and services through trade at your wholesale price. Because it may have cost you $6.00 cash to buy your widget, but you sold that same widget for $50.00 trade. Which means, when you use that $50.00 trade to purchase something through the IMS network, it really only cost you $6.00!
"Being in the service industry there are times when we are very busy and other times that are slower. During our slower times we’ve been able to generate trade business instead of having our staff idle. TechAnalysts has also generated business from referrals given to us by happy IMS members to businesses who were not part of IMS – these referrals paid in cash and not trade. If you are a business of any kind, we would highly recommend learning how IMS can become part of your business and marketing mix. "
