I always make sure that the cash portion of my contracts and product sales cover all non-tradable expenses. Then I use EOA to convert (at full value) all of my "to me useless" client credits into trade dollars, which are loaded onto my EOA card. Which I then use to purchase wanted products and services from my family, business and employees.
For my business I use my card to pay for employee benefits; soaps and rags; construction; embroidered uniforms; equipment; vehicle maintenance; accounting; printing; legal advice and a lot of advertising.
My family locally uses their cards for dining; shopping; entertainment; medical and construction services. We have also enjoyed luxury vacations all over the world! EOA has really improved my family's and my employee's life-styles.
EOA also provides me with a lot of new trade clients; monthly statements; 1099B forms; membership websites and mobile apps; an assigned trade coordinator and a large line-of-credit. My EOA cards even swipe through sellers credit card machines.
Now I wonder how my company survived and how any business survives with out EOA Commerce Network. And my story is duplicable by almost any business.
Although the construction industry does not do janitorial work. This true story is very applicable to how you could use EOA.
My mid-sized janitorial company was repeatedly outbid by several larger local firms. After years of losing contracts, I joined EOA Commerce Network and reversed the roles.
Shortly afterward, using one of their many powerful business tools I resubmitted my bids with a slight twist. I gave businesses the opportunity of paying a portion of my cleaning contracts with their products and services, and at their full value.
Being in business myself, I knew that allowing them to pay a percentage of our contract with what they sell would allow them to pay that portion discounted by their usual markup AND I'd also be giving them an additional sale. They realized that my offer would save them thousands of dollars a year over my competitors and I got my first large contracts, with many to follow.
This system also works with the retail side of my business. When I sell cleaning supplies I allow my business customers to trade their products and services for some of my selling price. Which likewise saves my buyers money, which makes them loyal to me.
Now every month my company continues to increase it's market-share while squeezing out my completely helpless competition.

EOA COMMERCE NETWORK PROVIDES
The Construction Industry Everything they need to grow!
Alaskan construction companies have been trading their idle time in for thousands of Alaskan products and services for more than 24-years. Most construction companies depend upon word-of-mouth to grow their customer bases, while our clients simply advertise whenever they want.
The construction industry almost always has extra time. And like hotels, unfilled capacity cannot be saved to sell later - when the time is over, so is their value. Consider how much these empty hours cost your company.
Five unsold hours per day at an average retail rate of $175 equals over $5,250 per week or more than $22,000 per month. If EOA could convert 10-percent of your current unsold hours at your full value (all organized barter transactions are at your regular pricing) this 10-percent increase in business would be impressive. Which is what EOA does for your industry.
We provide our clients with new customers who pay cash for all materials and parts. Trading your otherwise unsold time creates new customers that are loyal to your company. They will by-pass your competition to use you, and will not jump like Groupon-ers to the next discounted offering a competitor presents them with.
It is easy. Simply trade your unused time for trade dollars. EOA handles all the paperwork and by billing your services at their usual hourly-rates, you'll make your firm more profitable. Our construction clients can also control the amount of trade dollars they receive per month, thereby only acquiring what they plan on using.
Spending earned trade dollars instead of cash allows you to keep your cash for other uses. Remember, EOA trades always provide you with cash for materials and parts. You are only trading your labor. EOA clients use trade dollars instead of cash to pay for locally needed products and services, such as:
And remember, every trade dollar you spend leaves a matching cash dollar in your bank account!
When you purchase goods and services through our 24-year old, 650 Alaskan business owner network, your basis is almost zero, as you only book time when it would of otherwise gone unsold!
Besides hundreds of Alaskan clients, 90% of which are located in Anchorage; where are also 500 offices located in the lower-48 that represent more than 1 million businesses where Alaskan members can spend their trade dollars. There are also 200 offices located outside of the US, whose office's businesses also accept trade dollars.
