Whether its because you’ve hit that off-season slump, or you’ve lost your “new market” appeal, seeing your customer numbers slip is the last thing you want. In a world where people judge businesses off of word of mouth and Yelp reviews, we need to keep our customers coming back. Whatever the case, you need something to boost those numbers, and spicing up your market with different events can be a great technique.
Events are a great way to draw people in. They can be anything, and are super easy to promote. These events keep your market from turning into a forgettable venue, and can be as simple as bringing in local food trucks, or as extravagant as a themed market weekend.
While these events can mean large crowds and big bucks for your market and booths, it also helps create a community experience. Bringing in local bands can be a great way to show your support for not only them, but for your city and local arts as well. Something as simple as asking the local high school marching band to come play at your market will foster a sense of community and grow your clientele.
Why not have a local produce weekend dedicated to the family farms that people pass on their way to work everyday? You can help create a sense of unity in your market, and keep people coming back for the quality products they’ve grown to love.
Any event will give you something to differentiate yourself from any other markets near by. People will take note and stop in to support your market, and that added traffic will mean happy vendors. They will experience larger crowds, and higher sales.
As your market grows and sees more foot traffic, your vendors will be more willing to pay a more competitive rate, increasing your overall profits. By using market management software like BoothBooks, it’s simple to adjust booth rates based on your events, and to give vendors a more efficient way to work with you. That means vendors earn more, and you still see increased revenue as your market thrives.
The next time you think that your market is not meeting its full potential, think again. You may just need that little extra boost, and BoothBooks is here to help.
