Increasing revenues in a public company environment In a public company environment reporting a steady flow of revenue increases can be a significant portion of the sales strategy being considered. In these situations the use of a barter based sales strategy has several significant advantages while operating that sales strategy through Barter Media Brokers (BMB) can maximize those advantages. In a structured media based barter deal revenues are booked at the contract value of the campaign while COGS figures are booked at the cash cost of fulfilling on the media plan utilizing the highly discounted acquisition costs available through the BMB model. For example, a current contract opportunity with a major hotel group calls for a $400,000 TV campaign over a 6 month ad flight. This would be booked as $400,000 in sales. The fulfillment cost of the campaign is contracted at $180,000 resulting in an initial gross margin of 55%. This however is only half of the equation. A result of the corporate barter model is that the $400,000 in sales is paid by the hotel group, not in cash, but in room nights. This provides for an additional revenue through the conversion of the room nights into cash conservatively at $200,000. This provides for a total of $600,000 of revenues for a total COGS of $180,000 with a net positive cash flow.

Increasing sales and brand loyalty utilizing a co-op program The following is an outline on how your business can benefit from co-op advertising programs implemented through a Discount Ad Brokers program scenario. Co-Op advertising programs are frequently made available through manufacturers to create an incentive for local retailers who advertise the manufactures brand in local markets. Typically the co-op campaign will pay 30% to 60% of the cost of cable TV, radio, internet or print advertising that meets the guidelines established. The campaign is implemented to increase sales and provide a benefit to both entities participating in the campaign. The operator of the Co-op campaign provides a significant cost savings to the participant while also benefiting from expanded brand awareness. A Discount Ad Brokers client has an added incentive to provide a co-op program to their local retailers since, in effect, they can use this to generate a secondary cash flow while also benefiting from the added exposure and awareness levels created by the advertising campaign. Let's use an example of a product manufacturer whose co-op program offers to pay 40% of the cost of advertising campaigns implemented through the program by retailers. The retailer chooses what media they wish to place from the broad selection of opportunities made available through the program. In this example they choose $10,000 in internet banner advertising targeted into their coverage area. The retailer then pays the manufacturer 60% of this cost or $6000 with the other 40% being provided by the manufacturer as added value for distributing their product. Based on the Discount Ad Brokers program the manufacturer pays the 50% cost structure on the $10,000 ad campaign totaling $5000. Providing a net cash flow of $1000 to the manufacturer. The retailer now has the benefit of a $10,000 advertising program to increase sales and has received $4000 in valuable support from the manufacturer. The manufacturer just got paid $1000 to provide the support to their retailer and benefits from the increased sales and brand loyalty of the retailer. The benefits increase if the manufacturer coordinates this program on a national level. Increased sales, brand recognition and retailer loyalty plus positive cash flow Co-op Advertising Works!
