    10 Effective Ways To Reduce Your Business Costs
    1. Barter
    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.

    2. Network
    Try networking your business with other businesses.
    You could trade leads or mailing lists. This will cut
    down on your marketing and advertising costs. You
    may also try bartering goods and services with them.

    3. Wholesale/Bulk
    You'll save money buying your business supplies in
    bulk quantities. You could get a membership at a
    wholesale warehouse or buy them through a mail
    order wholesaler. Buy the supplies you are always
    running out of.

    4. Free Stuff
    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.

    5. Borrow/Rent
    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.

    6. Online/Offline Auctions
    You can find lower prices on business supplies and
    equipment at online and offline auctions. I'm not
    saying all the time, but before you go pay retail for
    these items try bidding on them first.

    7. Plan Ahead
    Make a list of business supplies or equipment you'll
    need in the future. Keep an eye out for stores that
    have big sales. Purchase the supplies when they go
    on sale before you need them.

    8. Used Stuff
    If your business equipment and supplies don't need
    to be new, buy them used. You can find used items
    at yard and garage sales, used stores, used stuff
    for sale message boards and newsgroups etc.

    9. Negotiate
    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

    10. Search
    You can always be searching for new suppliers for
    your business supplies and equipment. Look for
    suppliers with lower prices and better quality. Don't
    just be satisfied with a few.

    life to crimson splendor. Live bravely and present a brave
    front to adversity." -- Horace

    Our company just saved five thousand dollars purchasing a slightly used disk array on Ebay. In addition, the first 3 years we were in business we traded our SEO services for free rent.
