Attending vendor fairs is a great way to sell your handmade crafts and products. However, it can be difficult to know where to start. In this blog post, we will provide you with 10 tips for selling at vendor fairs that will help you have a successful event!
Here are our top tips for selling at vendor fairs:
-Pick the right event: There are many different types of vendor fairs, from small community events to large scale trade shows. It is important that you pick an event that is a good fit for your products and target market.
-Create a professional looking display: First impressions are important! Make sure your display is clean, organized, and professional looking.
-Price your products correctly: Be sure to research the prices of similar products before setting your own prices. You want to be competitive, but you also want to make a profit.
-Have plenty of stock on hand: It is better to have too much stock than not enough. You don't want to miss out on a sale because you ran out of product!
-Be prepared to answer questions: Potential customers will likely have questions about your products. Be prepared to answer these questions in a friendly and professional manner.
-Make sure your payment methods are set up and working: Nothing is more frustrating than having a customer who wants to buy your product, but you can't accept their payment! Test your payment methods before the event to avoid any issues.
-Have a plan for promoting your products: In addition to setting up a professional looking display, you also need to promote your products to potential customers. Have flyers or business cards available, and make sure to mention your products on social media in the weeks leading up to the event.
-Don't forget to follow up: After the event, be sure to send a thank you note or email to customers who purchased from you. This is a great way to stay top of mind for future purchases!
-Have some fun: Selling at vendor fairs can be a lot of work, but it should also be enjoyable! Make sure to take some time to enjoy the event, meet new people, and have fun!
