Currency Barter Exchange Becomes
Affiliate Of Equitrade International
Barter Exchange, with operations primarily across Alabama has joined
the Equitrade International group of companies in an official
affiliate merger. The Alabama based company, will adopt Equitrade's
branding and take advantage of a massive increase in trading
opportunities for its members.
are excited that Brad and Amanda made the decision to join the
Equitrade team," said Equitrade President Jim West. "Brad has been a
national sales trainer and a sales consultant for large corporate
barter companies and Amanda was a top broker with a national
exchange, leading a team to over $5M in annual trade volume." West
continued, "I have known Brad and Amanda for quite some time and
their knowledge of the industry and 18 years of experience will have
a very positive impact on Equitrade's growth."
The merger provides BLU Currency members
direct access to Equitrade's resources, infrastructure, and
innovative programs along with thousands of new companies to trade
with nationally and internationally. Current BLU Currency members
will not experience any adverse effects of the merger, as the basic
infrastructure, including login credentials and trading platform
will remain the same. The only noticeable changes will be the
branding logos and the huge increase in direct trading
Brad Howard said, "We look forward to
assisting the Equitrade team by helping all existing and new
Equitrade affiliates with sales and brokerage training techniques
that have been proven from markets coast to coast. Amanda Howard
added, "This is an exciting time for us. When I began in this
industry we were using a DOS based program, which is a step above
tracking trades with a pencil and paper. Now, with Equitrade’s set
of tools, large member base, and their solid leadership team — we
are expecting great things to happen for our local members and the
Equitrade team as a whole."
"Many exchanges are tied to their flag,"
Brad Howard noted, "and I understand that. BLU Currency was actually
featured on CNN's 'Making it in America' so it was a tough decision
to let go of the brand that Amanda I worked so hard to build.
However, being an independent can sometimes make you feel like you
are on an island. The industry is evolving and eventually you will
only have a handful of large exchanges; much like the consolidation
of radio, billboard and other advertising companies. I would
strongly encourage any independent exchange owner to carefully
consider becoming an Equitrade affiliate."

worry about small everyday events, for example, are four times more

indomitable optimist can lessen a person's risk of getting coronary
