If you follow my social media pages you will see I do lots of fairs/fetes/markets and other types of events with my Flamingo Paperie greetings card business. I do these in order to meet new people, to get my business out there and in short the cards are so beautiful they sell themselves, so just getting them in front of people sells them! I also use these events to attract people to my mailing list where hopefully they will then become regular customers. But MOST of all I do the events because I love doing them!! It gets me out of the house, doing something that is for me.
If the thought of doing fairs and market events horrifies you then don't worry, you do not need to do them!! For the business I am in there are many other ways to sell and grow your business, and the same is true for other businesses too. For example I am now starting to grow my business online through social media, which is possible for many businesses.
My card business is extremely flexible and people work the business in the way that suits them. Some people have a basket business where they drop baskets of cards off at places on a regular basis. This is very easy to do once you have some locations set up or people to drop them to. Some people focus on having home pop-up shops, a great way to sell a lot of cards. Others have a large door drop business and deliver and collect catalogues, much like you would with Avon. By the way, the thought of doing catalogue door drops horrifies ME and I just don't do them!!
In reality most Flamingo Paperie partners probably do a little bit of most things. So you absolutely can still grow your business without doing events. You really don't have to do them if the thought horrifies you! #dowhatyoulove!
If you think you would like to do events but don't know where to start then look out for my blog post on how I prepare for events!
