Calling ALL Companies with products and services that Small Business Owners Need and you want them to buy.
In the coming days I will be contacting some of the companies represented by their logo’s in the collage above. While it’s a great photo find at Bing.com it does not represent many of the needed products and services that I am seeking to include in the Exceptions Barter Exchange for small business owners. But you got the idea right? Big companies, that have stuff, that the little companies, need to grow their business, that will in the end, strengthen our economy.
I image and even anticipate, that in the beginning many of the Inc 500’s that I contact will laugh at me when I call upon them based on what I have thus far experienced. Because their employees have been trained to tell me, we don’t work with small business partners. It’s just too small for us. But you are welcome to go to our website and submit your idea into the obliss. They will reject my idea before they even listen to it just because it’s not BIG enough for them to consider. Now that’s a bad idea Big Boy. Here is why;
It is no secret to Inc 500’s and economic statistics that small businesses are the backbone of this country. They are the largest purchasers of the majority of the products and services of the sellers we are reaching out to; such as, but not limited to: Dell, Fed-EX, Office Max, Microsoft, IBM, Accountants, Lawyers, Doctors, Printers, and the rest of the essential service and product providers that are required to operate a small business’s daily operations.
If you can get your products and services into the hands of the small business owners; they will come back for more. Over and over again as they increase and expand their bottom line they will have more buying power to purchase what you have to offer in CASH. That is what you spend all of that marketing budget on isn’t it? Advertising to small businesses so they will shop with you.
Consider this idea to increase your bottom line with small business repeat purchases.Small Business Owners have no cash flow right now. They can’t even get a small loan from the bank to cover needed supplies and services necessary to perform for current clients much less new clients.
YOU, ALREADY know this, large corporate company, and that is why your whole ad campaigns have been changed to cater to reach the small business owner. And still yet, your sales are low and your own budgets are shrinking; because you can’t get your service/product into the hands of the small business owner. While you are scratching your head and wondering why; please let me, small business owner, help you make a change so that we can all keep thriving and growing our business.
Keep reading this post, it may be lengthy, but it is well worth your time and the increase to your bottom line to stop this domino effect,
OK, so by now , I have got your attention? You are listening to me, the small business owner trying to help other small business owners and you:
1) Sell your products
2) Increase small business productivity and buying power
3) Revive our economy through our backbone (A.K.A Small Business)
Great, now we’re talking “at the speed of business” in “real time”
While I am out here talking to small business owners and finding out what they need, right now, to finish the job for a paying client or to gain a new customer. You , Big Boy, Inc 500 are standing by in the Exceptions Barter Exchange with the products and services that 9 times out of 10 they are telling me “this is what I need in order to produce a professional product that a customer will buy”.
How does that benefit you? Here’s how:
First of all, you must know, that last year alone as reported by Wall Street Journal, CNN Money, CBS Weekend Report, and many others. The members of barter exchanges realized 12 billion in income from sales of their products and services. 75% of those members were Fortune 500 companies. (check the statistics for yourself, simply Google the above key terms)
PLUS: you too are earning dollar for dollar to spend and offset your cost of doing business by using Exceptions Barter Dollars for things you need to do in your local offices to keep making money.
Advertising- Your Exceptions Broker can help you find local, regional or national advertising opportunities to help your business.
Employee Benefits & Bonuses- Add to the benefits package by allowing your employees to use barter dollars for non-covered medical and dental expenses. You can also set up sub accounts for your employees to reward them in barter dollars.
Client Thank-You Gifts- It is less expensive to keep a current client than it is to get a new client. Why not say thank you to clients? Not just at holidays but anytime – it’ll make their day.

Whether it is treating your employees (and yourself) to in-office chair massages or having an office party or doing something wild and crazy, like horseback riding or fun day at the amusement park. A fun day makes all the days better. So use your barter dollars and have some FUN.
