Bartering is an old-fashioned idea where you exchange goods or services for the goods or services of someone else. There is no money exchange involved.
While the traditional examples are usually for products, services can also be exchanged as well. For example, a tree removal company may remove a tree in exchange for restaurant gift cards. A tax preparation service may also exchange service for a snow removal or lawn maintenance company. A web design company may trade for office space.
Many smaller businesses in Lake, Geauga and Cuyahoga County, Ohio have limited cash funds while they are getting their feet on the ground. Instead, they can offer their expertise in a particular area. This type of payment is just as valuable as money, if not more valuable.
Bartering arrangements also allow you to build a network within the local community. Local business owners can also recommend you to their clients and vice versa—it really benefits everyone involved, even the community as a whole!
