How to Expand Your Business By Using Your Spare Capacity

No, this is not a lecture on how to turn water into wine, quite the contrary, it is a lesson in how to value things that we are trained not to see or recognise as value; the hidden assets that lie within each business and which surround us, lest we dare to look.

Remember that it is Innovation which is the key to growth and not Improvement.  So, to that end, here you have it, an opportunity to convert your spare capacity into cash.  By making spare capacity a rigorous part of your business expansion plan, you can use it to grow your business at a much-reduced cost. Investment in business expansion ordinarily means using cash or leveraging a pre-paid cash asset as security for your borrowing.  Whichever way you choose, there will always be a cost attached. The cost if things go wrong and don’t work to plan, will eat into your hard earned business reserves or deplete some other cash convertible asset. Using trade pounds (Yews) does not.

Why are trade pounds cheaper than pounds sterling to expand your business?
Because they come from extra business you wouldn’t normally have had. 

Agreeing that the cost of your trade pounds is probably only what it costs you to make a sale, and the commission we charge on a sale (5%); it’s obvious that anything you get over and above that will be profit. This is the case whether it is cash or trade pounds.  With me so far?  So, if you already have goods in-house that are paid for, why wouldn’t you make the point of putting this spare “stuff” to work for your business and incorporate it as part of your business plan. Your cost is only the cost of production. 

Incorporation of this method of working will generate business that otherwise you have never had before.  You will become the go-to place of choice as people will realise that they can also use their own spare capacity to purchase from you giving them a discount for their business.   If only for the opportunity to discover and connect with businesses and new customers that otherwise you never had before, joining Yewtrade should be seriously considered as part of your business plan. The opportunity to connect with others on our network is very valuable indeed. 

So, use it to your benefit and don’t miss the opportunity to grow your business.
