Back in the mid-1990s, the internet was just getting started and The Barter Company opened its doors to a handful of clients. More than 20 years later, there are still many of those clients actively using barter to grow and manage their businesses. Here’s how two of those clients leveraged barter as part of their company’s success.

O’Brien Productions provides full-service event planning and has produced over 10,000 events throughout the Southeast since 1988 and became one of the first clients of The Barter Company in 1997. Owner Janet O’Brien explained how barter helped them grow: “Using barter helped us get the word out about our company and gain new customers. We’ve been with The Barter Company almost since the beginning and now we feel like they’re family. Their team can find us what we need and constantly sends us new barter clients.”

Regency Fine Art & Frame has been a family-owned business for more than 40 years. They offer framed col-lectable art and custom framed and matted art, including sports, music, and celebrity memorabilia. Regency Art became a client of The Barter Company in 1996 and re-mains a huge fan of the trade exchange. “We offer a va-riety of art and related services,” said Owner Lester Her-bertson. “By being an active client of The Barter Compa-ny’s network, we have access to many more customers. We mostly trade for advertising which allows us to save that cash for other areas of the business. We couldn’t be happier!”

The Barter Company has established itself as the leading force in the barter industry throughout the Southeast. They provide businesses with an alternative currency network by using barter dollars instead of cash to handle transactions.
