Improving Your Craft Show Application
A few years ago we started offering consultations for improving prospective vendors’ applications to craft shows. During these sessions we go over your application and your photos, talk a bit about what stage your business is at, and strategize about how to best represent that in your applications, whether it be for our own craft shows or others. Cost: $30/hour.
We know we can all tend to live in our own bubble, and it can be hard to step outside of what is familiar to you and see how your business is presented to an outside eye. We can help guide with what has worked for people at shows, from finding the best way to highlight your work, to strategies for increasing your sales. Many people think that throwing down a table cloth and setting up your work on a table is as good as it needs to be, but over the past decade, vendors have really been stepping up their game, essentially setting up mini pop-up shops in their 10×5 or 10×10 booth space. We’ll talk about how to attract shopper to your booth, and once they are drawn in, let your product make the sales. These services are based on hours and needs. Feel free to contact us for more information.
