Watch Your Business Soar While Cutting Down on Costs
The ITEX barter exchange is a group of business owners that- instead of trading directly with each other for products and services; they 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.
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
Every time you spend a trade dollar on one of these services for your business, 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.
