Basic Keys to a Successful LETS...
Stay Local - there is much more trading where members are geographically
close, and abuse is easily prevented.
A Solid Core Group - to organise a LETS you need a variety of
skills, don't try to run a scheme alone. See the list of Management
Group jobs, which help to ensure your scheme runs effectively and
Be Efficient - keep accurate records, ensure the directory,
newsletter and accounts are published regularly.
Keep People In Touch - exchange depends on friendly relationships
and people meeting one another. Organise regular social and trading
A Broad Cross-Section - attract a good cross-section of the
community, as reciprocal exchange is more likely if people have
widely different skills and interests.
