I hear it a lot.
“It’s so hard to make money at craft shows.”
The shows cost more and the attendance isn’t as good. People aren’t buying as much as they used to.
Gone are the days of “If I sell it, they will buy it.”
Gone are the days of “as long as enough people show up I will do fine.”
It’s hard. I know. It’s just not what it used to be.
That doesn’t mean it’s impossible.
We just have to be smarter and more prepared than ever before!
Being prepared means knowing who our customers are, where to find them and placing ourselves in their path.
In fact, if you figure that out on your own, you don’t need me or my eBook at all.
But, if you want my guidance, I’m here to help.
I am passionate about craft shows. Craft shows are where I really got good at knowing my customer. Craft shows are where I met my best allies. I got in stores from being a craft shows. I would have never been at Building Character for all those years without an event where I was selling my jewelry and met the owners. That positively affected my business, not to mention my profits, in so many ways.
Craft shows are where we as artists and crafters really put ourselves out there. Yes, you might have a website and that is awesome. I mean it. It’s important and essential. But if you really want to dig deeper, get in the trenches and meet your customers – face-to-face – you do that at a craft show.
It’s a lot of work, but I promise you it’s worth it in the end.
That’s why I revised my Craft Show Tips eBook. I love craft shows and I want you to love them, too. You’re not going to love them if you do shows where you make little money.
Craft Show Tips is an eBook filled with ideas and a step-by-step plan for preparing for shows, finding shows, choosing the right shows for your product, what to do at shows and selling at nontraditional venues like farmer’s markets.
But really, it’s about being prepared and making smart choices so you can have the best day possible.
