Trading Vacation Trips for Services.

So I just got this lead from a guy who say’s he can’t afford our services, but he’s willing to offer a trade….and it sounds so tempting….it’s a hotel in south america in a rainforest, near Mayan ruins, near 2 national parks, it’s on the coast where you can snorkel and scuba dive, and great fishing…sounds like so much fun.  I think I’ll have to pass though….too hard to explain to my employees why they’re working away on some project that’s not bringing us any $, while I’m off having a grand ole time on vacation…

A few years ago I did a trade for a trip to Scotland in exchange for some links….now that was a great deal, and I had an awesome time.

(how about them bonny knees of mine? (that’s my wife Mary with me if you were wondering)).

How about you guys? You ever take deals like these?

  1. I always consider deals like this. In fact sometimes when I know a client has no money I’ll offer a deal like this just to get them on board and help boost their rankings, if I have spare time.
    I’d have to say no to the trip to Scotland – but only cos I live here. (it’s cold, dark and miserable at the moment) Everyone else should consider a contra deal to come to Scotland, just wait til spring though.
    Great kilt Jim!.

  2. haha love the picture! You should wear that for a presentation. I still have a client in San Diego that is a hair salon and day spa. We are gonna hit him hard this summer when we go back for a visit. 🙂

  3. Jim go for it, I would bet your employees would support your decision. Think of all the cool new ideas you will think of tromping around in the rainforest. All work no play makes for a stressfull life.
