- Improve Cash Flow
Members finance purchases of goods and services out of additional sales of their own product, service, unwanted assets or excess capacity. TradeWorks creates new revenue for its members without displacing their existing cash business base.
- Generate New Sales
One way to view TradeWorks is as an independent, commission-only, sales representative. Fielding hundreds of calls per day, TradeWorks brokers search out and fulfill member purchase requests, generating incremental business over and above a company’s existing cash customer base.
- Recapture Lost Value, Find Hidden Profits
Every business must invest in the required space, equipment, and people to provide their chosen goods or services. Most cannot sell 100% of their capacity. TradeWorks members can sell unsold capacity at full retail value. Other businesses have perishable products or slow moving or unwanted inventory. TradeWorks can also move these assets at full retail value.
- Conserve Cash
Everyone spends cash every day for something they could have purchased with barter instead. Spending barter instead of cash effectively preserves your budget by increasing your spending ability. Meanwhile, you conserve cash for savings, investments and for the few things you can’t buy through TradeWorks.
- Enjoy the Advantages of a Managed Business Relationship
Trading member-to-member through TradeWorks alleviates many negative connotations often associated with buying and selling in the cash world. Brokers manage both sides of the trade, ensuring satisfaction. Each trade is approved in advance so there are no receivables or concerns about non-payment. Barter purchases are as easy to conduct as using a credit card. Each month you receive a full statement of detailed account activity just like a standard credit card or bank statement.
- Attract, Keep, Reward Employees
Use trade dollars as a bonus or to provide incentives, gifts, trips, or health club memberships. TradeWorks also offers a plan that allows you to provide medical benefits on trade. You can use barter dollars to pay for employee training, corporate parties, gatherings and much more.
- Tap an Alternate Form of Financing
TradeWorks may extend credit to members in good standing that offer goods or services in demand by other TradeWorks members. Barter loans can be used for any purpose. Another form of creative financing is using barter to pay debts or collect receivables.
- Enhance Personal or Family Income
Who among us couldn’t use a little extra money? Because barter is primarily generated by incremental business, many TradeWorks members see it as a revenue stream over and above their existing baseline income.
- Find More Time to Enjoy Success
When you need more business or have inventory to move, one call to your TradeWorks broker can save you countless hours. You can apply the same logic to tracking down vendors, supplies, and goods and services that you need for yourself and your business.
- Enjoy Some of Life’s Luxuries
Many business owners use their barter dollars as discretionary income. Their cash business covers the overhead. Barter dollars fund the vacation they could not afford or the fur coat they’ve always wanted. On trade, they send flowers on a whim, go out to eat more often or enjoy a show or concert.
