Reach out and recommend someone.

How does Hallmark Cards make money selling greeting cards?  Largely because they allow each of us to show extra appreciation and support to those around us. Especially ones with the cats on the front.

What does this have to do with your ITEX network?

The key phrase is "support goes to those around us".


Most of the growth of ITEX comes through referrals from current members. Our guess is, this isn't very different than the growth of your own business.  (It is by far the best and oldest form of marketing)

And with ITEX it's even more essential that growth comes from referrals. You can have a very definite and positive influence on the business owner being added to our marketplace. You are the gate keepers in their understanding of the ITEX concept. Referrals may be companies you've worked with in the past or simply a company that is in your same building or on your same block. Maybe it is someone you know from a networking group.  Even if you aren't ready to do business with this referral, they will serve other members, creating more members available to sell you things you want. The growth and trading options for everyone become exponential.

The 3 for 1 Invite Program

ITEX supports the referral concept with an incentive; with our 3 for 1 Invite Program.

For each referral you invite to ITEX that opens an account, your cash association fees are waived for 3 cycles!  Provide two referrals and they're waived for 6 cycles and so on.  Have 4 referrals join and you have your association fees covered for the whole year!

Meanwhile, you are expanding your trading options and the new member now enjoys the benefits of the ITEX network.  View a summary of your invites from the My Account page link "My Invites" on

Now that's a world where we support those around us.
