• Our Mission •
Local Trade Group (“LTG”) can help you expand your customer base and grow your business through “Modern Bartering”, while you conserve your hard-earned cash, and... Earn More Money!
- Pam Hanson, founder of Local Trade Group
• How Modern Bartering Works •
LTG is a Trade Group whose members can trade with each other, doing “Modern Bartering”.
Unlike old fashioned bartering, where you provide products or services to someone else, and they must reciprocate (providing you something in return), in “Modern Bartering”, members receive “Trade Dollars”, which members can spend with other members in a trade group.
But it’s better than that! All members of Local Trade Group have access to goods and services from tens of thousands of businesses nationwide and beyond through our affiliation with the TheTrade Alliance®, a consortium of independently owned barter exchanges!
If you haven’t heard of modern bartering in trade groups, you are not alone. Trade groups have been around for decades and it’s a growing industry.
LTG does many things to help its members. From helping to introduce members to each other, to facilitating trades both locally and beyond, to providing its members with the necessary paperwork and taking care of government requirements.
It’s a way to obtain new business. It’s a way to meet more business people, discover new opportunities, and have some new enjoyment.
Modern Bartering Can Be FUN!!
