Our Policies & Other Info

Rules

Vending Tips

  • Suggestion - Have a give-a-way or drawing for a prize at your table. This allows you to collect leads & contact info.
  • Suggestion - Practice setting up your vendor table at home, once you get it exactly the way you wan it, take a photo.  When it's time to set your table up, you'll have the photo to refer to - this will save you time and you'll have the perfect set up every time you're a vendor!
  • Suggestion - Make a list of your clients and people you want to do business with.  Reach out to them and personally invite them to come to the event. 
  • Suggestion -  Have something fun to do at your table - a few ideas, spinning wheel, share samples, offer free gift wrapping, make-overs, live demonstrations, guessing games, grab bags, etc.
  • Suggestion - Offer gift certificates.
  • ​Suggestion - Grow your list!  Have a sign-up sheet for attendees to join your Facebook page or group, newsletter, blog, email notification list, etc.
  • Suggestion - Offer an event special discount or perk, if they purchase today!
  • Suggestion - Get organized early.  Set goals for the show.  What do you want to accomplish?  What do you want to bring with you?  Set goals, make lists and be prepared.
  • If you would like more tips/suggestions or need help with preparing for the event, call Shelly at: 870.321.9667


Media/Press Releases

  • ​Press releases are sent out to local media outlets for every event - quite often reporters will come out and interview our vendors for news articles & sometimes we even make the local news!


Marketing/Promotions/Advertising

Our marketing efforts may include: personal invitations via U.S. Mail & phone calls, post card distribution, street signs, on-line advertising such as paid Facebook event boosting and paid targeted Facebook ads, collaborating with chambers, networking organizations, women organizations and local clubs/groups, newspaper ads, posters, periodical ads/stories, email blasts, community calendar listings, event site listings, pod cast & radio interviews, home owner association newsletters, cold-calling and after 30 years in the business we have a few other marketing secrets!
