I was reading this thread for advice:
And one of the many things I found useful, was to have small, shiny things on display to draw people in. Does anyone have particular products they use? Also, if this particular technique doesn't work, what DOES work for you?
I was thinking of getting some pins and badges printed because they definitely reel ME in!
Here are some tricks I've learned so far in my research:
- If things are quiet, have someone (a friend) walk around in front of your stall. You'll see that people are attracted to a stall that already has people in it.
- Don't sit down and look uninterested...no matter how bored you are!
- Shuffle your stock around during the day if you find that your product isn't moving. Maybe a refresh of your arrangement will do the trick.
- Keep your displays simple. You may feel tempted to over decorate, but your products can easily be lost in your "flair".
