In a recent teleclass, EzineArticles expert author Jeanette Joy Fisher mentioned to me that she often will barter her article writing skills for services or products she needs. I thought, cool…! how creative. :-)
I asked Jeanette to tell our blog fans more about how she barters her article writing skills and here is what she had to say:
“I was asked to write articles to promote stones sinks in exchange for stone sinks. The company contacted me. I am turning the articles into a free ebook with the resulting bathroom before and after pictures. We haven’t remodeled the bathroom yet with the stone sinks because we were right in the midst of a kitchen remodel and installing bamboo flooring.
Also, I received a huge discount for my new kitchen countertop. The countertops are honey color Cream Limestone by CaesarStone. (I don’t care for the busy look of granite.)
The articles are the ones on kitchen and bathroom remodeling. The products can be seen on http://interiordesignpsychology.com
If I had more time, I would contact companies with items I want in exchange for more article writing. However, it’s easier for me to pay my designer discount than to do all the research online. For instance, I contacted insinkerator about the hot and cold water filter/dispenser with one faucet. They were open to the article writing but had to present it to the powers above. I needed the faucet so I bought it wholesale. Someone with patience could write more articles in exchange for products.”
I love it!
Anyone else barter their article writing skills for anything cool?
