Could You Become A Mega Trader?

In every trade exchange, clients trade at varying levels — from low to medium to high. Then there are the mega traders, companies that actively and successfully utilize barter to improve cash flow and raise their bottom line profits.

What makes a mega trader? The typical mega trader has a positive attitude toward bartering and looks at it as a creative and alternative form of financing ... a new source of revenue.

The level at which a company trades has little to do with what industry they are in, their location, their size, or whether they have just one or two big transactions for the year. Although a mega trader must have the numbers to be in this category, the major factor is primarily the owner's attitude.

They are willing to put in the time to find the right deal, and are not afraid to walk away from the wrong ones. Whether purchasing for business or personal needs, a mega trader will always research for and exhaust all barter options before paying cash — period.

Some mega traders regularly pay employees with trade, or set up dental and optical plans. Some like to offer customer perks ... dining out, travel, catering. Some search out advertising, printing, office supplies and equipment, building maintenance, home upgrading, and vehicle upkeep.

Mega traders use barter for all of these items and more, to save their cash. They understand timing, and they know the value of barter leverage. They also are aware that barter is not an all-or-nothing situation, but rather a "what if" opportunity.

Can you become a mega trader? Absolutely! It takes a commitment to the program and some time to explore your barter options. Also, it takes regular and open communication with your trade broker. The reward is in the big payoff of gaining new customers, increased market-share, and improved cash flow.

Through barter you will be able to afford the products and services that once seemed out of reach. Bottomline: barter provides you and your company with many exciting new opportunities.

Build Company Cohesiveness Thru Travel Incentives

Companies of every size are searching for the maximum yield on their expenditures. Such companies are aiming for a tighter alignment within their organization by re-evaluating priorities, readjusting qualifications, and integrating more education. Thus, there's a new understanding of how firms can use incentive travel to its full potential — as an investment, not just a reward.

Incentives With A Purpose

As companies downsize and try to increase productivity, employees find themselves under more stress as they attempt to cram more work into their days. According to experts, one way for a company to make itself recession-proof is to take employees out of their work environment.

In other words, use travel incentives and plan a key-personnel retreat. It's a way to keep your people motivated in a pressured time, so they don't burn-out or leave your company.

An incentive travel program with a purpose can do just that — bring your company's best together into a unique meeting environment where you then recognize their obvious efforts and celebrate their excellence, in addition to integrating education and stressing company priorities.

Such a program will see the mornings spent in brainstorming and training sessions that are fun, challenging and creative. This will not be a typical incentive vacation, and that's made clear from the start.

But companies adopting such a program maintain that the new philosophy pays off. They claim that the best gift you can give people is to let them use their minds. And at the same time they'll be building company cohesiveness. So check with your exchange, to see what destinations and forms of travel they can provide your company.
