|1) OLD SCHOOL METHODS
If you have a business you should be bartering goods
and services with other businesses. You should try to
trade for something before you buy it. Barter deals
usually require little or no money.
Another option would be to network your business
with other businesses. You could trade leads or lists.
This will cut down on your marketing and advertising
2) FREE AND LOW COST
You should try visiting the thousands of freebie sites
on the internet before buying your business supplies.
You can find free software, graphics, backgrounds,
online business services, etc.
Have you ever purchased business equipment you
only needed for a small period of time? You could
have just borrowed the equipment from someone
else or rented the equipment from a "rent-all" store.
3) SMART AND THRIFTY
Make a list of business supplies or equipment you'll
need in the future. Save money buying your business
supplies in bulk quantities. Find lower prices on
business supplies and equipment at online and offline
auctions. If your business equipment and supplies
don't need to be new, buy them used.
You should always try negotiate a lower price for
any business equipment or supplies. It doesn't hurt
to try. Pretend you are talking to a salesman at a car
lot. Also keep on the look out for new lower priced
