Consultants are discovering that bartering can be a great way to boost sales for many reasons.
1. It’s a great vehicle during downtime.
2. Its a way to attract new customers.
3. It frees up cash for other expenses.
4. It gives you exposure.
5. It helps you network.
6. It often leads to cash work.
Bartering is a great way to get products and services that might otherwise be unaffordable.
Say you are a consultant who has faced chronic back problems.
You may be able to work a trade with a local chiropractor or licensed acupuncturist who agreed to provide treatments in exchange for web design, SEO ranking, etc.
You may need a portrait sitting or wedding photos for your daughter's wedding.
A local photographer may be willing to do the work in exchange for digital services you provide.
In both examples, the barter allowed both parties to receive goods and services they wanted, so it would be a 'win-win' solution for both. Frankly the examples are endless.
This Isn't New...Its 1,000 years Old.
For centuries, merchants, explorers, craftsmen and even kings have been known to exchange goods to get what they needed.
Everything from furs, to tea, to horses, and of course, gold.
Fast forward to the 21st century and barter and trade are still more common than you know. Local businesses of all sizes are open to a barter deal, IF it makes sense to them.
Is Cash Always King?
Not always as barter arrangements can help a consultant in so many ways;
Barter can provide local consultants with new clients and permits the consultant to expand beyond their current cash-paying clients.
Barter also helps in conserving cash. Instead of spending dollars to purchase select goods and services, consultants can exchange their services to pay for those things they need to run their business.
Or, they can do so for their personal needs...such as dental care, travel or landscaping or remodeling. Again, with bartering more cash stays within the business, providing better cash flow.
What Works For Consultants?
Direct or one to one bartering works when two parties are offering exactly what each other needs at a similar value and quality.
For example, Larry Smith of Smith Accounting would like a new website and articles placed on a blog every week.
Smith is approached by a local digital consultant who offers to build the accountants site, manage it and provide content for a blog each month.
The consultant suggests an exchange of bookkeeping services for the digital marketing services.
They outline the terms of the trade and shake hands.
It can really be as simple as that!
So Why Doesn’t Every Consultant Barter?
1. They don’t know how.
2. They're afraid they'll get turned down.
3. They think they're losing money!
4. They think the client will never want to pay cash anymore
The Truth? Its ALL False!
If you do bartering the RIGHT way, you can almost never lose. BUT, nobody is teaching how local consultants should barter for big profits.

Frequently Asked Questions
Q: What is different about your barter course?
A: Just knowing barter is possible or knowing the basics is not enough.This is much more than that. This course teaches you how to find good candidate businesses for a barter deal, how to approach them, how to get negotiate in a cooperative manner, and how to get agreement...and profit handsomely.
Q: Which services are the best for consultants to offer?
A: They're are many but we find one of the best is website design. We show you a unique web building tool (thats probably new to you) and how to use it and other tools to construct very sharp websites in almost no time at all...yet they look like you spent lots of time.
Q: Speaking of time, does this take a lot of time?
A: Each barter client takes maybe 30 minutes to negotiate and get agreement, once their interest is shown. Beyond that, you will need to build the site or perform the agreed digital service.
Q: Will these same businesses now be unwilling to Pay for services in the future?
A: Not at all. These barter arrangements are SPECIFIC to a time, a business and a single service. In the future they may ask about a barter again, but that's your decision whether to agree to further barters.
Q: Does this work outside the U.S.?
A: Yes! At first you wouldn't think so, but its all in how you approach the barter prospect....and what service you are in need of. If the barter partner can perform the service digitally, long distance, this can work.
OR if both parties are in the same area in another country, the same system should work as well.
Q: If It's such a good opportunity… Why Don't you charge more?
A: Yes, we could... We actually make our earnings from Local Clients, not from product launches like this. My last 4 launches, including this one,many customers tell me I'm charging too little...but I'd rather make it affordable for more people...especially this Barter System.
Q: Can I do this all from my computer? (Or do I need to go door-to-door to local businesses?
A: For the most part, this barter system can be 'location independent' can be done entirely by email and/or phone.
Q: "Why would a business need my help?"
A: Most local businesses feel they are paying too much in merchant service fees. They see that statement every month and it can ‘sting’. If they sell more they pay more. Its not hard to interest them in getting a free comparison.
Q:”Do businesses really consider Barter arrangements?"
A: You’d be surprised. Some surveys show up to 70% of local businesses have barteree for products and services at one time or another. Where a business can avoid laying out cash they are interested.
Q:"Will I need to spend money to save money?"
A: No. You can do this with no money, just your own time and effort. A little money for an outsourcer (explained in the training) will make it go faster, but its not necessary. Being broke is not a hindrance with this method.
Q:"Won't barter clients be distrustful?"
A: Nope.That’s because we show you exactly what to say and how to proceed. As soon as you have a few deals under your belt it will be easy to make the proposals...and if a business says 'No', you'll just move on.
Q: "Will I need Employees?"
A: NO (Unless YOU Want Them). If you choose to use virtual assistants or outsource that’s fine. But the prospecting and and follow-up is very easy to do.
Q: "What can I expect in the way of barter deals in the first 60 days?"
A: If you take action you will likely have made 2 to 3 deals in a month so say 4 to 7 in a couple months. Obviously this is just a raw estimate and your own efforts will determine the outcome. I cannot guarantee any number of barters, but I can assure you there are plenty of businesses out there that will barter with you..
