When Selling Put Yourself Out There

Most of all, do not get discouraged, and just be yourself, Simplicity and consistency are key. Keep your descriptions simple and true-to-life. Talk like a real person, not like a business textbook. Smile! Keep it consistent for an image that’s true to you, true to your business, and true to the professional reputation you want to create in the market.

Collect Customer Names And E-Mail Addresses

The power of Internet marketing is the ability it gives a vendor to reach out to fans and customers. Put an e-mail sign-up sheet on a clipboard at your booth. Ask for e-mail addresses when customers make purchases. Hold a contest or drawing with entry forms that ask for an e-mail address.
Vendors can also encourage customers to get in touch via e-mail. Put your e-mail address on receipts, business cards, product labels or stickers, and so on. Save the e-mail addresses of customers who write to you.

Put Yourself Out There

There are other ways to push your message at little or no cost. Many flea market managers offer Web pages or listings to vendors as a free service on a vendor page on the market Web site, such as right here at bcfleamarkets.com, The Vancouver Flea Market and the Vancouver Farmers Market. There are also free and inexpensive ways to put up your own Web page or site.
