The Benefits Of Using Bartercard As An Additional Income Stream
There are very few businesses who are going to say “No” to more sales.
After all, we are in business to earn a living and support our families.
However, it can be really hard to generate those extra sales. Clients don’t simply fall in your lap from off the street. Often, you have to invest a lot of time and effort into marketing and wait to see the results.
That is unless you join a relationship-focused network that opens you up to a whole range of new contacts, leads and potential clients.
Even better than that, you get to boost your income and free up cash in your business.
That is what you get if you join Bartercard – a genuine way to add an extra income stream to your business.
Let’s look into what Bartercard is and three awesome benefits to your business from people that currently use the system to increase their sales.
What Is Bartercard?
Bartercard is a network system that connects you with new customers and allows you to fill capacity gaps in your business. You do not trade in cash, but barter for services that can boost your business and your lifestyle. This saves you from spending cash unnecessarily.
For example, you could do some work for someone in the network and then use your trade dollars to buy all of your stationery supplies. Or new tyres for your work vehicle, furniture for your workplace, or even repaint your house. Then there are the lifestyle benefits of travel and other personal services.
The Bartercard network is a great space to connect with other business owners, just like TNG. Which is why we see the benefits of working closely together. Probably one of the best benefits for TNG members is that you can pay for your membership with Bartercard.
While a lead may start as a Bartercard prospect, you may also do cash work with them to boost all aspects of your business.
Here are some of the benefits of Bartercard that you will love…
Conserve Your Cash
With a long list of commitments on your business income, you don’t want to be spending more of your precious cashflow than you need to. Fortunately, Bartercard prevents you from needing to do that. There are many things within the network that will help to preserve the cash in your business.
LJ Shaw, TNG Lower Hutt member, has the best tips on how to do this:
“I get to use the trade dollars allocated within our marketing budget to network with other businesses at TNG. I save cash by using trade dollars generated within the Bartercard network. But marketing is not the only area we save in, there are many other ways we spend our Bartercard dollars to preserve our cash. Plus, the connections we make within the TNG network.
We attract an extra 10% of sales purely through the Bartercard network. Bartercard is an amazing community where business owners can trade directly with services in a closed group that is relationship focused. TNG ties in with that with exclusivity. It is a privilege to network with cash and Bartercard clients in the same space at TNG.”
Stop The Slow Periods
Most businesses will experience slow periods. Whether it is due to running a seasonal business, a traditionally quiet time, or a shortfall in marketing, your business will not always operate at maximum capacity.
But, that is where Bartercard can help. Let Sharon, Bartercard’s own TNG Te Rapa member show you how…
“The biggest benefit of Bartercard is that people get new customers when they need them the most. You can also move excess stock, and fill idle capacity to offset your regular cash spends.
Bartercard and TNG work hand in hand. It’s great being in a business network, where all our members support each other.”
Boost Your Marketing
With many costs to account for, often marketing is one of the last to budget for. But without marketing, you cannot grow your business.
Wouldn’t it be great if you could get a complete marketing strategy and implement it without impacting your cashflow? With Bartercard you can! And Lara McCormick, Regional Manager of TNG and marketing expert at Big Rock Communications will explain exactly how you can do it…
“I love that you can work a whole marketing plan for an SME, paying for it all on Bartercard. Everything from networking, telemarketing, database purchasing, to email newsletters and radio advertising. And that is just for starters. All of these components can help drive Cash sales into your business.
I also love that networking within Bartercard and TNG has expanded my network of business owners. I have found them all to have wonderful open attitude to growing their businesses in today’s environment.”
So, are you ready to get the most out of a TNG membership, conserve cash in your business, fill quiet periods, and boost your marketing?
Then join TNG and pay for it using your Bartercard dollars. No cash investment for you, but a massive return in connections, and sales. Make some extra income for your business to save for that capital item, boost your marketing, or finally go on that holiday you have been longing for!
