You're an education and training business and want to know how Bartercard will work for you?

The product you offer may be diverse within this industry but your primary focus is on delivering value to paying clients and filling each available space. You've probably considered several options to grow your business like offering early bird pricing, group discounts or other specials as an incentive to find new clients and encourage bookings. Alternatively, you could consider developing strategies that allow you to fill your unproductive times and unsold seats at full value and grow your word of mouth referrals. Since 1991, Bartercard has been partnering with education and training businesses helping them to fill vacancies with loyal clients. By tapping into Bartercard's network of approximately 32,000 cardholders, they have been able to break into new markets, grow their referrals and conserve cash by paying for printing, promotions, office equipment and other regular expenses using the Bartercard trade dollars earned.

Bartercard has helped us fill our courses with children of Bartercard business owners or the business owners themselves and they refer us on to their friends and colleagues which brings us additional cash business. In addition, the networking functions provide us with great opportunities to engage with smart business entrepreneurs. This helps us to learn how to grow our business and gain referrals for all of our courses.

For my speaking events I organise the venue, catering, the video production, printed material and promotions for the event all from Bartercard members, then package that to members and sell tickets on trade and sell into the cash market. It's amazing what a difference Bartercard can make to your business, and your life.

We were initially attracted to join Bartercard to tap into its large database of businesses to promote our programs. Our Bartercard business is gained through the various networking functions that our local franchise organises. A high proportion of our Bartercard clients, after completing one of our courses, re-enrol on one of our coaching and mentoring programs. The major benefit Bartercard has for the National College of Business is the cash savings we make by spending our trade dollars.

I joined Bartercard to make more usage of my driving school vehicles and have found it to be quite useful during the downturn in the cash economy. My cars are regularly serviced by a Bartercard mechanic plus I’m able to purchase equipment for the cars. I’m always looking for cash converting ideas to convert my trade dollars into cash. I’m the treasurer of my local driving association and am able to pay a Bartercard bookkeeper to audit the association’s books quarterly, which the association then reimburses me in cash. This is a really effective regular conversion of trade dollars within my business.
