The ITEX barter exchange is a group of business owners (that instead of trading directly with each other for products and services) belong to a network of businesses that gives them the freedom to spend their trade dollars with any of the members in our trading community.
Click on the video below to meet some of our members and learn how they spend their trade dollars within the ITEX trading community.
All businesses have “fixed” and “variable” operating expenses. While you can’t pay your fixed expenses on trade (rent, electrical, inventory, employee labor), the ITEX member knows that they can spend their trade dollars on many things they would have been spending on in their business, such as:
- Marketing and Advertising: Signage, Print work, Web & Graphic Design, Social Media & SEO
- Professional Services: Attorneys, Financial Professionals, IT & Computer Repair, Business Coaches, and so many more)
- Medical Services: Dentists, Orthodontists, Periodontists, Optometrists & Opticians, Chiropractors, Urgent Care, Dermatologists, Podiatrists, ENT’s, Pediatricians, Plastic Surgeons, and many other specialty fields
- Maintenance Services : Cleaning, Landscaping, Automotive, Contractors
