Bartercard: A World of Business Opportunities

Bartercard CEO Clive van Deventer

Regardless of what country, culture of currency, money makes the world go round, but today it’s not just cash fuelling commerce world-wide. In 2016 Bartercard is celebrating 25 years of trading, and the Gold Coast-born company has grown to operate the world’s largest trade exchange achieving $4.4 billion in cash savings for Australian businesses, equating to 21.9 million currency alternative transactions. Bartercard Australia CEO Clive van Deventer said although Bartercard has expanded into a multi-million dollar industry which stacks up approximately $600 million in transactions each year across eight countries, its vision remains unchanged. “Barter has evolved and come a long way from the days of swapping a cow for a goat, but the basic principle of assisting small businesses to attract customers, conserve cash and increase profits in almost every industry has stayed the same,” he said. “Our vision is to make businesses successful by being the leading global business marketplace where members connect and barter.” Van Deventer said that Bartercard is a tool to supplement the cash market, filling downtime, idle capacity and selling slow-moving stock as an additional sales and marketing distributuion channel, but has turned into a viable economic alternative. “Last year businesses saved over $130 million in cash through the indirect exchange of products and services,” he said. “Today’s modern approach to barter steps away from a direct 4 Australian Business For Sale ®

swap and instead uses trade dollars, recognised by the ATO as the equivalent to a dollar, transacted in a closed business network.”

“Conserving $200,000 in cash has let me invest in new services like laser tattoo removal to stay competitive in the market,” she said.

Back to basics

“There’s nowhere else in business where you have the ability to offset cash flow like you can with Bartercard.” Van Deventer said the biggest areas where members trade are advertising, core busiensses products and services, lifestyle, and real estate, albeit the exchange has businesses across almost every industry.

Bartercard works actively with Australian businesses to facilitate cashless transactions and above all, the system is about going back to basics. “Bartercard started in 1991 when Australia was experiencing one of the worst recessions in history and businesses were looking for solutions to cash shortages,” said Clive. “It was created out of the idea that going back to basics and using a closed group of businesses to conduct cashless transactions would rebuild small to medium-sized businesses in Australia.” Van Deventer added that despite starting up in adversity, the company found a gap in the market to launch just at the right time. “Twenty-five years down the track we’ve grown into a global brand under which thousands of members continue to remedy setbacks for SMEs, including competition from large enterprises, through technology platforms that support their vision.”

Saving $200,000 in business Mornington Peninsula-based business owner and Bartercard member Suzanne Johnson has saved $200,000 in her hair and beauty salon, Peaches & Cream, by earning currency alternative and using it to make business purchases in place of cash. This included a $40,000 saving on a recent salon relocation. Suzanne said she used Bartercard to offset the cash cost of the architectural plans, installing new fitout, painting flooring, new signage, plumbing, advertising and more, all paid using trade dollars instead of cash.

He also added that Bartercard takes a holistic approach to business and lifestyle. “We believe that every business owner should enjoy the fruits of their labour whilst not impacting the business or the family cash budget,” said Clive. “Business owners use their Bartercard trade dollars to pay for accommodation, take their families on holidays, renovate

their homes and pay for a range of other lifestyle expenses.” “What started off as a small group of businesses trading has turned into a collaborative economy of scale which supplements approximately 24,000 business in eight countries.” He added that twenty-five years down the track, Bartercard has come a long way evolving with the technology and the times, but its goal of growing businesses remains the same. “We’ll continue to stick with our members through thick and thin to drive business through trading.” Want more business tips like these?

How to Get Going and Growing in a Difficult Economy: By Bob Lyon In this article we’ll get down to the nittygritty of how to get going in a difficult economy. When we’re done, you’ll be armed with a creative, industrious, positive attitude in the face of hard times – the same hard times that cripple your competitors. If you’re reading this article in the middle of a difficult economy – and the chances are that you are – it’s vitally important to take careful stock of the psychological and transactional changes going on in both the minds and lives of your market place and in the minds and lives of your competitors. Look at the attitude and actions of your suppliers, vendors and support services. You’ll probably witness the following predictable reactions. Your competitors are feeling battered. Their sales and marketing approaches are generating meager results. They don’t have tried and tested plans in action. And they don’t have a proactive strategy for capitalizing on all things going awry. So typically you’ll see them pulling back and trying to cut costs to maintain a holding pattern. Or they’re redoubling the same ineffectual efforts that didn’t really work during the good times but got masked by the upward force of the economy. So what do you do? Set up an offence and defense – Offensively, you look for gaps, weaknesses and hidden opportunity in all this adversity. And believe me it exists in droves. Defensively, you stop doing anything that isn’t working. Test, monitor and measure your results and you’ll know immediately when something isn’t working and you can stop wasting time and money on it right away. This will help you guard against loss, but you can do better than that. Your next step is to go beyond merely surviving and to begin enacting changes that will ensure your business continues to evolve. What are some of those direct and impactful ways? Well, we’ve talked about the importance of joint ventures so let’s start there. Your first plan of action should be to structure joint ventures with groups who already have access, trust and credible relationships with market segment you want to reach. The key is to move your costs from fixed 6 Australian Business For Sale ®

and speculative to variable, contingent and result certain. But it gets even better. These steps comprise only stage one of your crisis growth strategy. Your entire outlook and modified approach are based on gaining more direct, favorable, predisposed and highly credible access to your market in unconventional (but highly ethical) ways – and these are ways your competitors would never think of. It’s your opportunity to make your product or service stand head and shoulders above the rest. Think about it. When your competitors are too blinded by their own panic to reach out to the market place in a meaningful way, that’s when you can establish yourself as the pre-eminent, most trusted, reliable source whilst everyone you compete against is bleeding red ink.

improvement and the incentive to do more. For example, people who remodel a kitchen suddenly see that the rest of the house looks a bit shabby. So they re-carpet and re-paint and re-do the driveway, roof, and bathroom and so on. It’s the same for people who add a pool or spa. They re-do their landscaping, re-envision their garden, and add an extension to their veranda. My point? Well let’s say you’re the contractor remodeling a bathroom. You can go to all the people who do non bathroom remodeling such as kitchen re-modelers, carpet companies, and roofing people and make deals to get their client’s names after their work has been completed. Their business is potentially a huge source of future business for you.

Life Time Value of a Client

What’s next?

You can engineer countless performance based deals with other businesses when you are able to make them irresistible propositions. The key to success at structuring no-cost performance deals is to know your allowable cost for acquiring a customer.

Look at your basic business – not what you sell, but what you don’t sell that your type of buyer or client needs, wants and will buy in a crisis economy.

Most companies don’t analyse what a lead, prospect and converted first time sale really costs them. And until you know that piece of information along with the life time value of the buyer, it’s impossible to make performance based deals with the media and other companies. In a crisis economy when sales are down along with consumer confidence or motivation you need to make offers, propositions and proposals that are irresistible, unbeatable and non-refutable. And in this context especially remember the life time value of your buyers. In any economy the goal is to start the buyer relationship as quickly as possible, because the sooner they buy that first time, the sooner they’ll come back to buy again. So your goal in good times or bad is to lower their resistance, lower the barrier of entry and reduce the hurdle. Make it easy for your prospect to say “Yes.”

Penetrate New Markets In a crisis economy odds are great that your competitors are focusing their attention on the same basic market that you’ve all targeted all along. If everyone else is depending on either their newspaper ads or Yellow Pages to generate business, you can tap into overlooked, undervalued alternative sources. For one thing, there is an economic connection between doing one type of

Most business owners see themselves as being highly specific sellers of a single category of product or service, yet the same people who buy from you also purchase complementary or related products or services before, during and after they buy from you. By adding additional back-end products or services that you can source from quality providers who, like you, are struggling in this crisis economy and will be open and willing to structure very advantageous deals where you offer their products and double, triple or even quadruple your revenue. Once you’ve mastered the art of growing your business regardless of what is going on in the surrounding world, your business will always thrive if you action these ideas. In a downturn, fewer people are taking the steps they would in rosier times. Your competitors are struggling because they possess the mentality that says “No one is buying”. You on the other hand are growing your business because you know that whilst the pie might be smaller, your piece of the pie is getting bigger and bigger.

10 Reasons Why Franchisees Fail by Jason Gehrke failed to evolve with their market. 2. Inadequate training & support

Jason Gehrke After more than 25 years in franchising, I’ve seen both franchisees and franchisors achieve spectacular success, and others lose it all. There is no such thing as a sure bet in business, but franchising helps reduce the risks of small business by providing a supported environment utilising both the resources of the franchisor, and the community of franchisees operating under the same brand. Franchisees do not invest in businesses to lose money, but by the same token they don’t always do enough to mitigate their risks either. If their business fails, the franchisor is the obvious target for the franchisee to blame, and on occasion, this is justified. However, franchisees are often the architects of their own misfortune for a variety of reasons that they can’t or won’t acknowledge in time to save the business. So between franchisor-related reasons and franchisee-related reasons, here’s my top 10 list of causes of franchisee failure (and which can occur in any order, depending on the business):

Franchisor causes: 1. Bad business model The franchisor’s business model might be the first thing that franchisees would like to blame for their failure, but this is not always the case. Underdeveloped business models are likely to be found in new, start-up networks, and this should be factored into a potential franchisee’s assessment of the risks of joining. While the business model risk may be greatest for a new franchisor, it can also re-emerge as a potential cause of failure in mature networks unable to match the pace of change set by nimble competitors, or which have otherwise 10 Australian Business For Sale ®

Failure caused by poor training or subsequent levels of support is also likely to occur in newer, start-up systems compared to mature brands. Training and support is typically limited to operational matters in new brands, with little or no general business training provided. Franchisees can better protect themselves from training and support problems by better understanding in advance the nature, content, frequency and assessment of training and support provided by the franchisor, and if it doesn’t seem adequate, to either ask for more or look for another system altogether. 3. Insolvency When franchisors go broke, often their franchisees will be unable to survive because functions such as marketing, supply chain logistics, IT and other core activities that hold the network together may be wound back or cease altogether. Again, the greatest risk of franchisor failure is among newer, start-up franchisors, but even mature brands on occasion can fail, such as Angus & Robertson in 2011, and Kleins and Kleeinmaid in 2008.

Franchisee causes: 4. Wrong fit A potential franchisee may love a business from a customer’s point of view, and from this, decide that the business is one that they would like to run (because they love the products or services so much). Unfortunately there is a big difference between loving the products or services, and loving the challenge of running a business that sells those products or services. Sometimess franchisees, no matter how passionate they are about the product, the brand or the industry, just are not suited to the business. They may not be dynamic enough to evolve with the business over time, incapable of managing or retaining staff, or a whole bunch of other reasons that is best summarised by simply being the wrong fit for the business.

5. Insufficient planning A failure to plan is a plan to fail. Despite the obvious wisdom of this saying, many franchisees still fail to prepare a business plan before commencing their franchise (and on the flipside, many franchisors fail to insist on one either). A business plan should be a road map that shows the way to achieve profits by certain milestones. The franchisor should be involved in the planning process and should analyse and constantly monitor business plans submited by franchisees to ensure that the franchisee operates their business acording to the plan. 6. Insufficient working capital & reinvestment A lack of working capital and a lack of reinvestment are among the most common causes of all business failure (not just franchising). Franchisees who start operating businesses without adequate working capital will be unable to pay their bills when they fall due if the amount of cash coming into the business is not greater than the amount of cash going out. Even if the business is profitable, it can still fail if its customers have not paid it on time and it runs out of money to pay its own bills when they fall due. Understanding the difference between cash flow and profit can mean the difference between surviving and failing. Likewise with reinvesting in the business – a failure to do so progressively could eventually result in massive reinvestment works that can send a franchisee broke. 7. Unrealistic expectations The best way to test whether or not a franchisee has unrealistic expectations about the future of their business is to examine their business plan. This will provide an essential insight into their financial expectations (and when they expect to achieve them), but there may be other unrealistic expectations based around training, support and the flexibility of the business model, among other things. The problem with assessing expectations in advance is that they are rarely articulated to the franchisor until after

Pages_003-018.qxp_Pages_3-18 3/08/2016 15:24 Page 11

the expectations have failed to have been met. 8. Other distractions (stealing from themselves) Sometimes the cause of a franchisee’s business failure is not related to the franchise at all, but something else altogether. If a franchisee is comfortable with the performance of their business, they may look elsewhere for a challenge and find another business or interest to keep them occupied. Often this will take too much of the franchisee’s time (and their money) away from the franchised business to suit the new venture. Where this occurs, franchisees effectively steal from themselves by taking valuable capital and human resources from one business to support another. When the left hand robs the right hand, both hands risk losing the lot. 9. Failure to evolve (complacency) The market in which the franchisee’s business operates is constantly changing, and if the franchisee doesn’t change with that market, they will

ultimately become irrelevent. Fortunately for the franchisee, they are not alone on this journey of constant change, as the franchisor must also evolve to keep up with the market as well. However if the franchisee is too complacent with their business (or has their attention elsewhere) to adapt to change, their business will inevitably suffer. 10. Failure to follow the system Despite investing in a franchise with a prescribed way of doing things, some franchisees think they can do it better and instead of following the franchise system, they buck the system and try to do their own thing. Franchisors are the first to admit that franchisees can come up with excellent ideas to improve a whole system, but if some of their ideas are completely at odds with the brand offer and values then the franchisee may as well have bought an independent small business instead. Not only do franchisees who fail to follow the system risk censure and even termination by their franchisor, but they often sabotage their own business in

doing so, causing sales and profits to decline. This is not an exhaustive list of reasons why franchisees fail. Nor are these reasons independent of each other, and sometimes two or more are responsible for a franchisee’s business to collapse. So now that you’ve read the top 10 reasons for a franchisee’s business to fail, what are you going to do differently to make sure that none of these happen to you?

1. Take Your Time

3. Undertake Educational Courses

When buying a business, it is important that purchaser allows for a considerable time (2-4 months) to find an appropriate business. Since buying a business requires a major commitment on purchaser’s part, it is vital that the purchaser takes his/her time and makes an informed decision.

Undertaking a technical course specific to the industry chosen is a good way of obtaining additional information about a industry and the management issues involved in that industry.

4. Don’t Buy the First Business Examined

2. Conduct Industry Research Once the purchaser has decided on the industry in which he/she wants to buy, it is important that the purchaser undertakes relevant industry research considering points such as industry’s performance, no of businesses operating in the industry, main suppliers and customers etc. This would provide purchasers with an increased ability of analysing a business in that particular industry.

Examining a number of businesses that are for sale in their particular chosen industry would give the purchasers a better understanding of certain working aspects of the industry like profitability, staff levels and working hours etc.

from an individual who is independent of the transaction and also has the relevant industry knowledge like accountants or business valuer in order to make sure that no important details have been overlooked.

Franchisee in Focus: Gerhard Herzig A belief in excellence and a love of making people happy inspires Hairhouse Warehouse franchisees Gerhard Herzig and Duane Merchant to strive for the top. Their goal is to reach the pinnacle of success via operational excellence, best practice in customer service and staff engagement. After nine years with Hairhouse Warehouse, the franchisees have taken the brand’s proven model to the next level, rolling their two existing stores into one Hairhouse Warehouse superstore to increase efficiencies and customer service. The superstore at the Pacific Werribee Plaza represents the brand’s future modus operandi, with a new concept design that reimagines the way customers interact with products and sales consultants. A winning combination of store layout, visual merchandising, and Pacific Werribee Plaza’s recent upgrade have all contributed to increased sales. However, Gerhard and Duane’s focus is unswervingly on customer service excellence and staff satisfaction. “It is all about the team, and ours has a very customer driven focus,” Gerhard says. “You’re only as good as your team. Take care of your people and they will take care of your customers.”

Gerhard and Duane are proof that you don’t need experience in hair and beauty to have success with the Hairhouse Warehouse model. Prior to joining the brand, they ran a boutique graphic design, photography and marketing agency. “Success in this business is about your skills in team-building, business understanding and learning, and networking skills,” Gerhard says. “You can learn the technical side on the floor, and hire qualified personnel to handle that aspect.” Franchising offered Gerhard and Duane the chance to work under a nationally recognised brand, with all the support that entails, while maintaining the autonomy of business ownership. “We were drawn to Hairhouse Warehouse because they are leaders in the market,” Gerhard says. “They want to be number one, and they don’t compromise.” The Hairhouse Warehouse model offers the additional benefit of multiple revenue streams within the business. There is the service stream, with hairdressing, piercing and beauty treatments. Then there is the retail side, which streams into electrical goods and ‘wet’ products such as shampoos, colouring products and treatments.

Hairhouse Warehouse has enabled Gerhard and Duane to strike a good worklife balance – the Holy Grail in today’s professional environment. Outside of work, both are tennis enthusiasts, enjoying the sport both as players and spectators. “There are times of the year when we spend a lot of time in the store, and other times when we can pull back a bit,” says Gerhard. “Transitioning from two stores into one was a very busy time for us, but we received such great support from Head Office, even though we’ve been with the group for so long.” The Werribee store is currently ranked at number four within the group, putting the franchisees’ goal well within their sights. Earlier economic predictions about the grim future of retail have not materialised in Australia, and Gerhard and Duane are optimistic about the future. “Hairhouse Warehouse’s outlook is very positive,” he says. “The future is bright.”

This exceptional, one of a kind business opportunity is located in the business centre of Meningie, on the shores of Lake Albert, an easy 1.5 hour drive from Adelaide, South Australia.

Incorporating 3 businesses in 1 - The Lake Albert Motel, My Friends Cafe, and Lake Albert Laundromat - the sale offers an amazing opportunity for the right buyer. Meningie is the gateway to the breathtaking Coorong National Park, with its vast expanses of waterways, amazing bird life and walking tracks, popular with both local families and tourists.

This thriving town boasts all the essentials - supermarkets, schools, Hospital & Medical services, numerous Clubs and Restaurants, sporting clubs, plus many other shops, services & local community groups. The Lake Albert Motel

This 14-room Motel comprises 8 Doubles, 3 Triples, a Family / Disabled Unit, a Kitchenette Unit, and a Deluxe Spa Unit. Catering to corporate clients, locals, tourists and groups the Motel is conveniently located within walking distance to grocery shops, chemist, bakery, hotel, bottle shop, restaurants and cafes. My Friends Cafe

This fully licenced cafĂŠ is attached to the motel and positioned at the front of the property with great street visibility and access, also allowing it to take advantage of the fantastic location and views across the lake. The Lake Albert Laundromat

Adjacent to the Motel , the laundromat also offers convenient street frontage. Consisting of 3 commercial washing machines and 2 commercial dryers, it is the only laundromat in town.

This business is currently run by a couple with 1 - 4 casual employees, and would ideally suit a chef or cook looking for a solid business and great lifestyle in a beautiful area of South Australia. 10 year lease with option to extend. Enormous potential exists to expand the CafĂŠ, and a new motor sports park (due to open in 2017) just 30 minutes drive from Meningie will further increase the demand for accommodation in the area.
