THE IDEA I've hit upon the idea of creating a UK based Batering website that allows people will various skills and services to swap those assets with other people who may have a service or product they want. For example I design websites and standalone Access Databases, as well as providing IT training and consultancy. I provide free help and advice for a local Accountant who in return provides me with free accounting help and advice from time to time. I'd be very happy for instance to design a website for a resturant and rather then charge them £500 for it, simply ask for £10 off a takeaway meal once per week for a year or exchange a couple hours of my time providing IT services with a Dentist, or Patent Lawyer (Hopefully by now you get the gist of the idea). I'm sure there are lots of people there who have a skill that they could exchange for another - perhaps you design websites and need some plumbing done - or you're a plumber that wants to have a website created for your business. WHAT I'M LOOKING FOR People that have skills relevant to creating such a website. For instance in creating an online database that will take people's details, i.e. Name Email Address Location Skills and Services You Have to Offer Skills and Services You Are Looking for Graphic Designers to give the site a great look and feel. Hosting companies to provide space in exchange for some free advertising on the site., etc. PAYMENT Since this is a batering website there is no money on offer, just the ability to demonstrate your skills, and create a service you may have the use of one day, as well as have online credits and links to your own website. If this sound slike an intersting project and you have some spare time or webspace then get in touch.
