Jack Schacht Elected To Barter Hall Of Fame

The International Reciprocal Trade Association’s (IRTA) Barter Hall of Fame Committee is pleased to announce that former Illinois Trade Association (ITA) founder and CEO, Jack Schacht, has been elected to receive the 2016 Barter Hall of Fame Award at IRTA's 37th Annual International Convention at the Riviera Maya Hard Rock Hotel. 
Schacht has over 40 years of barter, marketing, management and business leadership experience. He started ITA in 1984 and quickly grew the company into largest commercial barter exchange in the U.S. by 2006, when it was sold to IMS. Jack served as President of the National Association of Trade Exchanges (NATE), was a member of the board for fifteen years and received multiple outstanding service awards. 
"I am honored to be elected to the Barter Hall of Fame by so many of my friends and colleagues. Their recognition of me is a testament that the barter industry is at its best when we work together as one," said Jack Schacht after hearing of his 2016 award.
He also was featured in INC Magazine and Forbes Magazine: "When Money Isn’t Enough." Schacht currently is the CEO of My College Planning Team, which offers creative solutions to help middle-income families afford college for their children.

NOTE: The Hall of Fame Committee voting process ended in a tie this year for the first time in its history. All committee members voted, and Jack Schacht and Annette Riggs received equal votes. Consequently, the committee has elected two new members to the Hall of Fame this year.  However, Annette has graciously offered to postpone her induction until IRTA's 2017 convention. — World's Largest Depository Of Barter Information

The Key To Future Prosperity Is Local Community Interaction

Thomas H. Greco Jr., author of Money & Debt, A Solution To The Global Crisis, stresses that the world has changed and local community interaction is the key to future prosperity in today’s unraveling economy.
He says we’re now in the early stages of "the great unraveling." And the means to restoring resilience to our communities is taking action. There's
a need to share, cooperate, and organize as never before — spend locally, save locally, and invest locally.
Greco, who has been a keynote speaker at an International Reciprocal Trade Association annual convention, proposes we need to apply our dollar resources to projects that:

  • Make the local community more self-reliant.
  • Provide greater local security in food, energy, housing, water and   other necessities of life.
  • Improve the overall quality of life.
  • Protect our savings against inflation of the dollar.

He also articulated that we must reduce our dependence upon banks and conventional money, by organizing private exchange systems. Systems that can be networked together to provide an interest-free and inflation-free means of payment, while also making sure credit is reliably available to local productive enterprises.
(In his book, Money & Debt, Greco pointed out that the compound growth of debt would eventually exceed the capacity of the real economy to bear that debt.)

Barter Partnership-Marketing Increases Your Payoff

One of the ways to expand your marketing efforts is by contacting and partnering with other members within your trade exchange. Look for those whom you've met and created a rapport with (at mixers or trade fairs) as well as those offering complementary but non-competitive products or services. If you need some help, give a call to your trade broker for possible introductions.
For example, if you're selling nutritional supplements, you could join forces with the local fitness center wherein you'd display each other's products or services in your respective businesses. When creating a promotion that would provide additional exposure for both of you, look to fund it on trade and split the cost.
To get started in building barter partnerships, analyze the type of customers you service. What types of businesses are they in? What companies are they doing business with? When you spot a significant number of your customers coming from one industry or neighborhood, consider teaming up with others from the exchange that might also supply that target market.

Working together and sharing marketing costs, as well as customers, is a winning barter partnership for all.
