A local company, a member of IMS Barter, bartered with companies that are willing to accept his services in place of cash.
" “TechAnalysts was introduced to IMS Barter several years ago. It was probably one of the best business & marketing decisions we’ve made. IMS Barter has been an excellent source of referral business that we otherwise may not have had an opportunity to receive. During our slower times, we’ve been able to generate trade business instead of having our staff idle. Anytime we need to make a purchase, we check with our IMS trade broker to see if what we need is provided by an IMS member. We have 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 about IMS to better understand how IMS and trade can become part of your business and marketing mix.”"
