Budgets are tight in these days of uncertainty and bartering is a great way to help get the items and services you need to help launch your business. The key is knowing the value of your item and what you are receiving. The exchange has to make good financial sense to both parties. You must also keep a record of all your barter transactions including expenses and income from them.
If you are interested but not sure how to get started I suggest joining a barter network. Yes! They exist and are a fantastic resource.
