Paint & Body Shop Barter Network
Enjoy the Benefits of Business Bartering Today
Vehicles are a critical part of many companies’ service. Whether it is driving your personal car to and from appointments, or a fleet of vehicles necessary to complete the task at hand, repairing damage and repainting these vehicles over the course of their lives is a large expense- and one that many of our ITEX members want to spend their trade dollars on. Automotive Paint and Body Shops can truly benefit from being a member of the ITEX trading community in several ways:
- Gain customers from outside of your neighborhood- ITEX members will travel farther to spend blue and save green on large purchases like automotive work!
- Experience ease-of-use with online account access, complete statement and transaction histories
- The support of customer service from a local broker’s office office
All businesses have “fixed” and “variable” operating expenses. While you can’t pay your fixed expenses on trade (rent, electrical, employee labor), the ITEX member knows that they can spend their trade dollars on many things they would have been spending cash 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
Every time you spend a trade dollar on one of these services, it keeps a cash dollar in the bank that you can re-invest back into your business.
One of the many reasons to participate in the ITEX trading community is to pass that supplemental income on in the form of a benefit to your employees! In a tough economy, many ITEX employers have found that they can give bigger bonuses that employees appreciate if they factor in the ITEX dollar.
Ways to bonus employees using ITEX:
- Purchase restaurant gift certificates or certificates for services within our network
- Plan an over-the-top party to show your appreciation: have it catered, include transportation, the works!
- Cater lunch for your staff at the office once a week
- Offer incentive programs using our vacation rentals, hotels and restaurant certificates
- Can’t offer health benefits? ITEX has Urgent Care, Dentists, Chiropractors, and many other medical services that ITEX employers can send their staff and extend payment as a benefit to them.
- Have a manager, assistant, or longtime employee? We have a subaccount program that would allow you to compensate/bonus in ITEX on a consistent basis.
