Barter can help to relieve stress in many ways.  Did you know that it could also help to relieve the stress of moving?  In this blog I’m going to talk about how you can use barter to make the transition out of your home you’ve sold a little more smooth and a little less time consuming.

One of our newer IMS Barter members, Mark Skipper of MAS Office Cleaners, has created a new service within his cleaning company that is perfect for home sellers and Realtors.  When a homeowner embarks on the journey of selling a home, there is usually more work to be done than expected and it’s usually more expensive than expected.  You’ve had an inspection, you’ve made repairs, you’ve gotten the house ready for showings and open houses, and you’ve somehow managed to fit in finding your new house.  At this point, homeowners are not only pressed for time in moving to their new home, but they’re probably also sick and tired of cleaning the same house over and over again!  This is why Mark Skipper created The Move-out Stress Relief package.  MAS Office Cleaners will come into your home, after you’ve moved out, and clean each room top to bottom.  Your home will look fresh and sparkling brand-new for the new owners.

Selling a home and moving can also cost you more money than expected.  Don’t let moving bust your budget.  Use IMS Barter to help you keep some of your cash in your pocket. Barter can easily be used to pay for a mover, something you would normally pay cash for.  This is just one of the many ways barter can be used in your daily, personal life.  Either way, it all affects your bottom line.

Dramatically Lower Your Office Cleaning Costs

small__2480598087Are you a doctor, lawyer, dentist or accountant with some extra hours that you would like to get paid for?  For example, if The Barter Guy finds you a new client that pays you $4000 barter dollars for hours you normally wouldn’t have billed, you can use those barter dollars to clean your office twice a month for a year.  That’s $4000 cash dollars you get to keep in your pocket.  Keeping up on cleaning even in the lowest of traffic areas is important for the maintenance of your office.  IMS has made it possible to get more cleaning done during this exceptionally dirty time of year, but still keep your cash in your pocket.

When I approached our newest IMS member, Mark Skipper with MAS Office Cleaners, to talk to him about barter, I already had a client in mind for him.  Mark saw a big opportunity to get his new business in front of a network of people he wouldn’t ordinarily meet and thought it was a smart business move to become a part of the IMS network.  Mark’s services include cleaning businesses of low traffic area that typically have 1-10 employees.  They are typically office suites in business parks that house businesses like insurance agencies, law offices, and CPA firms.  If this sounds like your office, consider keeping your cash in your pocket and calling MAS Office Cleaners.  MAS Office Cleaners handles the cleaning duties that these busy professionals don’t necessarily have time to take care of on their own:

  • Vacuuming
  • Sweeping
  • Restrooms
  • Break room cleanup

Spring is a muddy time of year.  It seems no matter what precautions are taken, leftover salt, sand, and mud on shoes gets tracked inside.  Because of this, normally low traffic offices may find it necessary to beef up their cleaning efforts.  Keep your office spotless once per month, twice per month, or once per week with a cleaning package from MAS Office Cleaners.  Keep your cash in your pocket, increase your bottom line, and keep your office shining!  If you’re already part of the barter network, you can contact MAS Office Cleaners through the IMS website.  If you want to find out how you can free up your cash and use barter dollars instead, contact me, David Carroll The Barter Guy, to get your business exposed to the other businesses in the IMS barter network.  Make sure to follow me on Facebook and LinkedIn to get updates on all the valuable connections in the IMS network.
