What do you like about being a member?
I can use my barter dollars to go out to dinner; get a massage; send my kids to camp; so many great things!
What have you purchased for your family over the last couple of years?
I sent my son to summer camp. Normally I would not have been able to afford it, but with BP I was able to send him. He absolutely loved and still talks about all the fun he had and how he is looking forward to going again each summer. Every night after camp he was ready to go right to bed; he has so much fun he was exhausted.
How has barter benefitted your business?
I´ve gotten so many patients through BP, and they tell their friends in and out of the BP network. I have helped many [members] with their conditions — they would not have found me without BarterPays!.
Do you use barter for employee incentives, gifts or staff parties?
I have used BP to give gifts to people who refer to me. I just hired an Office Manager and may give BP to her.
Have you used barter to market your business?
I have used barter to run radio ads; we´re going to run more ads this year.
Have you gotten any new customers on BarterPays!?
I have gotten more than a dozen patients from BP in just a few years.
