Do you know what barter means? Just in case, let me give you a brief definition via Merriam Webster dictionary: to exchange a service or good for another service or good. There you have it.
Bartering is a great way to get your name out there as a referral business as well as network with other businesses. It’s like a free advertising and marketing plan.
One of the greatest benefits of bartering is the flexibility to provide services without any exchange of money. Of course, it should be with someone you trust. For example; I currently barter my email marketing services with a business owner that provides massages and organic products. It doesn’t get any better than that.
Ways to find bartering services is asking other business owners on how you can help them and vice versa. Also, attending networking events is a great way to meet new people, new businesses and also to advertise your own services.
Don’t be afraid to provide bartering services to grow your business. It’s great practice for your business and great business ethics.
Cheers to bartering!
