Warning: If you are not interested in business-to-business consultative sales, this opportunity is not for you. Owning a barter exchange is 100% about sales and marketing.
If you are interested in making a difference with people, if you enjoy working with businesses or have an interest in consulting as an occupation, owning your own barter exchange may be just what you need.
Right now, in the United States, credit is tight and sales are down for most businesses. Many businesses are closing. People are being laid off. Maybe you are one of those people. Barter exchange owners have a unique opportunity right now to help the business community, both with credit issues and sales.
How does it work?
As a barter exchange owner, you will be engaged in two activities, primarily: signing up new members and helping them buy and sell.
What do you get out of it?
Most barter exchanges charge a sign up fee from $50-$1000, a small transaction fee to both buyer and seller (somewhere between 3% and 7.5% per transaction), and a small monthly fee (somewhere between ($10 and $30 per month). Below is an example of the income potential of an exchange that charges a $500 sign up fee, 5% per transaction, $10 per month, and signs up 10 new members every month.
The bottom line? The barter industry needs you. It needs qualified individuals that want to start a business, make a difference in their community, and be a consultant and barter banker for local businesses.
