One of the ways I am building my business, and have been for a number of years now, is by being a vendor at festivals and events.
While the majority of my business is online through our e-commerce store and eBay/Amazon, getting out and vending at events really lets me reach customers that would have not found my business otherwise.
Besides the jump in sales it creates, there are opportunities to create long term customers, help a potential customer make an informed decision, and advertise my business.
In this series of posts, I am going to share a number of things and “equipment” that I find essential to be able to run my mobile store at events.
So if you are interested in learning about being a vendor at an event, festival, arts and craft fair, or other type of market, keep an eye out on this series for lots of great information and suggestions.
