Yesterday, we discussed barter and what it was and how to use it in today’s world. Today, we are going to discuss how you can use it in marketing your business.
As most of you know SRS Virtual Assistant is a young company being formed in September 2012. As all new companies I was looking for a way to let people know about me and what I could offer to small business owners and also to gain customers. I meet a couple of people online who introduced me to bartering and as the saying goes, the rest is history. I provide virtual assistant work for a few people using barter and I get paid in bartering money in my account. There are a variety of things I can use the money on from vacations to services. At this time I use my bartering account to pay for business coaching.
I have been approached by many people who would never of heard about my company any other way without the bartering and my first bartering clients have given me experience in doing different virtual assisting jobs and I have gained confidence through the process. This is just my own person experience with bartering and how it helped bring me some of my first clients and helped market my business in a very unique way.
Do you think bartering would be a form of marketing you would try? Let me know in the comments below.
