Why should you trade through JRTE and not directly with other businesses on your own?
Trading on your own is often difficult because:
  • The business with which you wish to trade directly must desire an equal amount of your product, dollar for dollar.
    This rarely happens, and usually leaves someone shortchanged
  • You have to spend time, resources, and money to find the business owner with whom to trade
  • There is no one to officially (or accurately) track and record daily trade transactions that occur throughout the year when trading direct, and not through a trade exchange
  • There is no one to offer you creative and proven ways to leverage your trade more effectively and proactively
  • It is difficult to trade, on your own, for certain items/services (like advertising) that are usually available in a trade exchange
  • Trade opportunities are limited to only those businesses/owners you already know
  • Trading direct does not promote your business - exposure is confined to the trading parties themselves
