TIPS OF THE DAY
1, The Crafters who continuously do well are the ones who have spent a little time thinking about their presentation, remember we are in a high quality retail environment and the public expect a certain level of sharpness.
2, It's not all about what you earn on the day use this opportunity to hand out business cards and gain new excited customers who have never seen your product before. The leaders in Craft all do this gaining them returning customers and sales out within going to events.
3, The biggest of them all that everyone doesn't like to do is COLLECT EMAILS Yes! I know you hate it but you must start now building a mailing list to send out information about you and your company to your excited new customers who want to know more!!! You don't need to send them out all the time just as little as once a month. Tell them about new products your working on (not selling) Tell them your next event or how about a genuine special offer.
HOW DO I ASK FOR THEIR EMAIL?
Run a raffle of something really good that you create and have a draw once a month from March-December (normal Craft event trading times) thats just 10 items. It has to be your highest valued items ( you have to make it worth it to ask for their email, a genuine offer) now we know this won't cost you a lot but
think what you will gain, NEW customers all year long who are interested in you and your product. The best Crafters collect around 10 emails per day, could you collect more? Please try this and tell me about how much it's woking for you, everyone does once the give it a go.
HOW DO I START UP AND SEND OUT A MAILING CAMPAIN?
Look up www.mailchimp.com it's one of the best FREE email marketing service provider and the one we use. OK we now pay for it because our database is so large now but it's well worth the money.
