Swap & Barter Marketplace
« on: November 07, 2011, 11:24:19 AM »
Hi Guys,

Quote
Swap
verb (used with object)
1. to exchange, barter, or trade, as one thing for another
2. to make an exchange

Tired of your video games? Why not trade them with another member?  Maybe you have some books you would like to trade? Here's the place ...

Thanks,
Mark

ps. On a safety note, I recommend that after making a deal you exchange your mailing address through emails or pm, not here in the thread.

Hi John,

Please PM the shipping info for the books.

PS I have a WP theme that needs some changes (PhotoShop) are you up for it? Nothing major (I think)

Sure thing, as long as it's not going to require slicing and coding the slices to HTML.
That's something I just can't do well.

If you're not sure, go ahead and send it on over and I'll take a look.

Hey Gang,
Not sure if this is proper for this thread but I heard a new term yesterday and thought I'd toss out a proposition.

Mark, if this really doesn't fit into your intent with the barter thread perhaps starting a new one could be an option?

The new term (for me) is co-opetition ... co-opetition is a new spin on how you should look at your "competition"

Instead of looking at your competition as something negative why not get together with them and form a co-op of services.

For example ... I HATE SEO with a passion. but love to customize php scripts to fit a clients specific need. I've heard MANY say they hate coding. So I would look for an SEO Freak who hates to code and combine forces.

You can run this one of two ways in your agreement with the other provider.

1: Barter ... trade services and stay in the background. Trade your skills for theirs and the client wouldn't be aware the other party even exists. In a sense each party is an "outsource". This could also be modified to a cashflow situation ... the requesting party charges the client then pays the other.

2: Refer each other exclusively - make an agreement to only refer the other to existing clients asking for something you don't want to do.

I have used #2 for years and built a six figure business that way. I'm now trying to do more of #1.

Striking agreements with others who do just what you do is an option as well. Perhaps you're overloaded and need something quicker than you can do. Find someone and see what you can work out.

I'm anxious to hear what everyone thinks of this.

Hi Mike,

Anything I can do to help this idea move forward? Do we need a new thread for this or what did you have in mind?

Hi Mike,

There have been plenty of times I could have used some help with PHP customization.

I'm no "expert", but I've had some success with SEO in the past.

If you want, you can count me in for the bartering!

Excellent  :cool: ... glad to see so many open to the concept.

Mark, That sounds like an idea. Make a thread ... everyone list their skills and what they are looking for then each person can work out the details via pm or whatever option they're most comfortable with.

I say this becasue I think negotiations should be private so to not fill up the thread.

Everyone feel free to chime in with regard to ideas how this should be run. If it takes off I'm willing to setup a Skype and FB group for further expansion.
