SNM156: The Secret to Bartering Your Business

You don’t need to spend a ton of money to get started with your business. Often you can simply exchange your time helping someone for access to the course, training, and software that you would struggle to afford right now.

What Do I Have That’s Valuable?

It’s easy to look at yourself and think that you have nothing to offer someone you admire online, but that would be a big mistake.

I can’t tell you how valuable help from the crowd is to me.

For every single book I write, I desperately need early readers and reviewers.

Just about anyone who leaves a review on Amazon gets an email from me.

And if you leave a video review, you’re almost guaranteed to get offered something more expensive for free.

You don’t have to do MASSIVE favors to get attention; the little stuff is often worth far more than you realize.

Use Your Strengths

There are many assets you possess that are unique and valuable.

Don’t approach someone where they are strong, approach where they are weak.

Would you offer a man, who owns a rocking chair factory one of your rocking chairs?

Of course not.

That’s his area of greatest strength.

When forming a connection, always offer where you are strong and he is weak.Click To Tweet

A little creativity makes the barter process much, much easier.
