Whew, the event is over. Time to break down the table, roll up the banner and pack up the boxes! It was a great day. Now’s the time to review and think what I’ve learned.One of the best things I’ve learned is that it’s a great time to build relationships with the other vendors. I got two radio interviews and a speaking engagement! I also got a bunch of solid leads. Most people are willing to help! I went to take a picture by my phone & left it on neighboring seat! I was frantic! Another exhibitor turned it in! I flew to Registration. Voila! My phone was found and returned to me! Whew!
You are responsible for your audience-invite as many as possible! On average,you get 3-5-% response out of one hundred! also, when you contract with company hosting the event, read the fine print. Several vendors assumed the event would supply extension cords. A few vendors had to run to Walmart and felt rushed during the set up 2 hour window.
Plan out your booth ahead of time…Prepare all your marketing materials a week ahead of time! Less stress! I was printing til day of and my printer ran out of ink, requiring a quick purchase run. Take it from me, plan ahead! Plan for something to go wrong so you have a cushion in your schedule. Have fun, make some sales, capture contact info of every person who stops by your booth through raffle & my newsletter sign up. Smile. Everything is energy! Project positive vibrations. It makes a difference!
