How It Works

Do you need New Customers?

If you are in business in Northwest Arkansas or the River Valley and you have the capacity to handle new customers, you should consider joining Local Trade Partners.

If you have empty restaurant seats at lunch or dinner, open appointments on your calendar, we can help you.

It's a fact that not many businesses operate at 100% capacity- We can all use a few new customers.  A few new customers will be your most profitable customers since your overhead has already been paid by your existing customers.

We bring you new, highly qualified customers.... people just like you... Local Business Owners.

Do you need more cash flow?

Use the Local Trade Partners Dollars you get to offset your current cash expenses.

Take the Trade Dollars you make and use them to replace some of your previous cash expenses.

Everyday expenses like Restaurant meals, accounting services, lasik services, advertising, pest control, dry cleaning, printing, office copiers, web sites, personal services, lawn service, customer framing, art classes, dance classes, glasswork, maid service, janitorial, tanning, golfing, glasses, contact lenses, carpet cleaning, message on hold, NWA Naturals baseball, catering, batting cages, dog boarding, dog grooming, chiropractic, gifts, boutiques, travel,  tuxedo rentals, veterinarians... the list is nearly endless.

Save your Cash and Spend LTP$ instead!

Trade Generates NEW Customers: This allows you to expand your market and maintain your cash-paying customers. This is incremental business-customers who bypass competing businesses to do business with you.

Trade Conserves Cash: Trade creates new customers because buyers are motivated to pay with their products or services and save cash.

Please consider: if you had to make a purchase for $1000, would you rather write a check or pay with an equal amount of your product/service at its normal selling price to a new customer?

Most businesses prefer to trade and conserve cash.

Trade Increases Profitability: Trade customers pay retail prices, so you get the full value of your goods and services.

Trade Moves Excess Inventory: Businesses must keep their inventory moving and customers shop for the most current merchandise each season.

Local Trade Partners will bring you buyers to move your inventory, eliminating the advertising costs and heavy discounting otherwise needed to accomplish this.

Manufacturers/Wholesalers: Trade Coordinates The Selling Of Surplus Inventory: We negotiate for you to receive either the going price in the marketplace or your normal selling price to distributors. This allows you to maintain your current pricing integrity and upgrade your return on investment.

Increase Productivity By Filling Downtime and Excess Capacity: Service Business: Increase billable hours! If you are not at 100% capacity 12 months a year and you can handle new customers, we can help you fill your free time with your business opportunities. And now you will have trade dollars to purchase what you need. Hotels: Suppose you have 10 vacant rooms at $100 a night and you need a new brochure for $1000. Trade provides a way for you to buy your brochure, fill your rooms (at your cost), and maintain your cash. Manufacturers: If you are currently operating at 90% capacity, going to 93% changes very little in the cost of production. Wouldn’t it make sense to take on a new trade customer to cover the cost of next year’s product catalog?

Networking Expands Your Customer Base: Trade customers will bring you all the cash referrals that your present clients bring. You will gain new cash paying-customers too-as long as you give your trade customers the same great services and pricing you offer everyone else.

Avoid ONE-ON-ONE Trading Hassles: Our computerized round-robin trading system lets you use trade dollars from a transaction with one member to trade with any other member IN the country-and we do the collecting for you!

Get Practically Anything! Between our clients and the clients of our sister exchanges nationwide, there’s practically nothing you can’t get with barter.
