I started working with International Monetary Systems in 2010 and they have brought me over 100,000 in new business. I have a fleet of vehicles and use the trade dollars I earn to pay for auto maintenance, lettering and for vehicle wraps.
I have also been very successful turning my trade dollars back into cash through advertising including: direct mail, billboards, radio and tv. My most recent advertising on NBC4 resulted in 5 calls on the first day the ad hit the screen. If they rest of the runs are as successful, the investment will be well worth it.
I use the trade business to fill in the slow times so I can keep all of my crews working. When I do good work for an IMS member, I am normally referred to their friends and family for additional cash business. I feel that barter is a useful tool for someone looking to grow their business and will continue to use IMS to get new business and to save cash.
