How many members do you need to have a successful barter exchange?

April 3rd, 2008 · No Comments · Barter Blog

Two – if they’re the right two. Some exchanges have several thousand members, and I still wouldn’t call them successful. The KIND of clients you have is more important than the quantity of clients. You must have a variety of products and services so people will buy from each other.  If you had all attorneys and accountants, chances are, little trading would occur. Having several copier dealers, printers, restaurants, office supply stores, a dry cleaner, a hotel, coffee service, and a barber will give your exchange a good mix of “in demand” items.


Once you get to 50 clients, you can begin active trading.  You’ll build to those next 50 clients quickly.  To learn more about barter, and starting your own barter trade exchange, visit today!
