Make boosting businesses your business – with Bartercard

Bartercard, the UK’s largest business-to-business trade exchange, is giving talented sales and management professionals the chance to become part of a nationwide success story by setting up their own Bartercard franchise.

At a time when banks are being criticised for not lending to SMEs, bartering is booming across the country, with business owners increasingly seeking innovative ways to invest in their companies and drive their own expansion without denting their precious cash reserves.

Moreover, many companies are recognising the value of bartering regardless of the state of the economy – there’s always a business case for companies making use of spare stock or capacity, rather than parting with cash.

Bartercard not only allows members to preserve cash by providing an interest free line of credit, but also boosts revenues and profits by introducing new customers to businesses. For instance, a restaurant can fill empty tables by advertising meals among the Bartercard network. It can then spend the Bartercard trade pounds it earns in this way with any other member, which could mean covering the cost of anything from printing menus to buying new kitchen equipment – keeping cash within the business.

The success of Bartercard is what’s driving the current nationwide expansion – which requires skilled professionals from across the UK – and is also what makes owning a Bartercard franchise such an attractive proposition.

Bartercard franchise owners have the potential to succeed by engaging SMEs with a way of doing business that not only makes particular sense in the current economic climate, but also can prove invaluable regardless of the state of the economy.

Not only is the product compelling, but there’s also full support programme to help franchise owners to thrive, including a comprehensive training plan, along with administration, management and marketing support.

Better still, research shows that the success rate for franchise businesses is at a record high of 98.5 per cent.

Bartercard franchise ownership means enabling companies to realise the significant benefits of bartering, at a time when this is proving more valuable than ever, and when franchises are enjoying record success – an unmissable opportunity.
