Weekly Update September 9, 2015

Participating in Fall Vendor and Craft Shows

Vendor events and Craft shows are some great ways to meet people outside of your ALICE list. These can be amazing selling opportunities as well as the perfect spot to fill your calendar and build your team. When participating in these events, there are a few things to keep in mind:

1. Always try to set up with the O2 Look in mind. People know our branding and will seek out your booth.

2. Make sure to have plenty of TOM's and business cards on hand.

3. Always be engaged in the event and greet your customers. These really aren't the place to catch up on reading or crocheting.

4. When at all possible, be in front of your table with your guests.

5. Make sure you interact with other vendors, these can be your best customers.

When booking events, make sure to ask about the expected turnout, how many years this event has been happening, how they will be advertising, and make sure that you will be the only Origami Owl designer there. Many event coordinators are only interested in filling spots so you want to make sure you will have a successful event.

Again, these events are a great way to expand your customer base and build your teams, just always make sure you are prepared and don't forget to have fun! People see fun and they want to be a part of that!
