Learn what you need to know about securing a table and vending your artwork, crafts, or other products at ARTsplosion. The meeting will include an overview of marketing and sales aspects to consider in order to make the most of this local sales and audience building opportunity, including:
– resources for simple business card design and affordable printing
– realistically considering sale-ability of items and appropriate pricing structures for items
– how to build a relationship with a future customer, even if no sale is made.
Vendors will go home with a personalized ‘homework’ assignment, of something they can work on over the next month to improve their preparation for selling at this event.
