Growth strategies for keeping your business moving in a forward motion can be challenging. One important goal for all business owners is to recognize the importance of keeping an open mind to new ideas on how to attract new clients and save cash.
The equation to filling the gap is easy; take your downtime, whether you have 30 minutes a day that you are not billing out your services or several hours a day. This is considered wasted and non-revenue generating time, a vanishing asset you can’t recover the next day. Fill the gap with new exchange member clients; No more empty seats in your restaurant, entertainment venues, empty hotel rooms, excess inventory or non billable hours.
By joining an organized trade exchange you are opening your business to a whole new community of professional business people with like-minded goals, looking to fill the gap of their downtime while looking to build new client/customer relationships.
Fill your downtime with business people looking to use your specific services. At IBE we keep a controlled zero-based economy which means we help you establish a monthly exposure level of how much new and additional ‘plus’ business you are looking to generate to fill that downtime. You earn IBE trade dollars when you provide your services, bank the trade dollars with IBE and then we help to match your cash expenses with other liked minded businesses offering those services on trade.
Use what you have and get what you need. It’s that easy and a smart growth strategy to fill the gap with new business.
Time to give some Thanks!
