What if I told you there really is a “secret” way of buying everything you want and need for your Internet marketing business for 20, 15 even 10 cents on the dollar?
Believe it or not, you can.
In fact, I’ve saved thousands of dollars with the secret I’m going to show you in this article. And you will, too.
There is a billion dollar global industry called the barter or “trade” industry — where literally every kind of business you can think of does business in a large network called a “barter exchange.”
And these exchanges are like huge “buying clubs”, where all the different member businesses are automatically inclined to buy from one another.
When the web designer joins…everyone in the exchange gets a notice about it, and whoever needs a web designer is probably going to hire him.
And the same goes for everyone else who joins — the plumber, the lawyer, the dentist, the copywriter, the pharmacy, the magazine, the consultant, the newspaper, the web hosting company etc. (Almost every single product and service provider that exists are in these exchanges.)
And here’s what’s interesting:
These businesses do not buy and sell from each other with regular “government circulated” money.
Instead, they use “trade” dollars — which are actual currency, just like a U.S. dollar bill is currency — but that can only be spent within the barter exchange.
It’s like a giant “Monopoly” game. You can only spend Monopoly money within the game itself. But outside the game it’s completely worthless.
And the same goes with trade dollars. They can be used like cash, but only with the businesses in the exchange.
And these businesses buy each other’s goods and services with these “trade” dollars, instead of regular dollars.
Now here’s the kicker:
A few years back I discovered a secret “loophole” — 100% legal and ethical — in the barter industry that lets you buy any of the thousands of products and services (including Internet marketing services) sold on trade for as little as 20, 15 even 10 cents on the dollar of “real” money.
What most people in the trade industry don’t realize is trade dollars are not as easy to spend as regular dollars. And many businesses in barter end up accumulating thousands of trade dollars they are either too busy or too lazy to spend.
Remember, it’s not like regular money you can spend anywhere. You can only spend trade dollars within the exchange.
And you can get tens of thousands of dollars worth of products and services for mere pennies…simply by contacting people with excess trade money, and offering to buy their “trade” dollars with regular dollars — and at a steep discount.
In other words, let’s say Mary the copywriter has $5,000 in trade. She’s too busy to spend it and it’s sitting in her trade account doing nothing for her.
Then you come along and offer buy that $5,000 in trade for $500 of “real” money.
Mary thinks about this, realizes she’s never going to spend all that trade money (making it as worthless as Monopoly money to her), and $500 sounds pretty good. So she agrees.
And you then look at all the different products and services in the barter company (the big ones have thousands of different products and services) and essentially buy $5,000 worth of products and services for your Internet marketing business on trade…for just $500.
Pretty amazing, isn’t it?
This secret lets you get $100 of products and services for $20 — $1,000 of products and services for $200 — $10,000 of products and services for only $2,000 — and so on.
The money-saving potential for Internet marketers like us is enormous.
Because in addition to advertising and marketing services like ad space, classified ads and email blasting, there’s also computer repair, software, web design, web hosting and just about anything else you need to run your Internet marketing business.
And all you do is contact a few of businesses who are involved with trade, and ask if they would like to sell you their excess trade dollars in exchange for real money.
Yes, it really is that simple.
