November is always the busiest month for my Phoenix Trading business. There are more fairs and events on in this month than the rest of the year put together! And so sometimes it can be about choosing the best events to go to, but at the moment as it is my first November in this area it has been pot luck! You can never tell whether a fair will be well attended or not.
My strategy this year has been to try what ever comes up. If it is good do it again next year, if it isn't find something else next year. This month I also chose to do one of the fairs that I have attended for four years in Exmouth. A long travel for me but usually well attended. This year I had the best day there yet. So definitely keeping that one in my diary for next year, even with the extra distance!
Inevitably as soon as I was booked up for November, more possible fairs came in and I have had to pass these on to another local trader (not in my team), and one back to head office. Which leads me to the conclusion: I need people in my team in this area!!
And coming up this weekend is the busiest Sunday, when I could have attended a dozen different fairs! So have i chosen my event well? We will see!
And finally....a strange occurrence this month, Google seems to like me! I have had two website orders and two phone enquiries from people who have googled Phoenix, looking for someone local to them and I have popped up! It seems to be my netmums listing which they are finding. I did this listing years ago and it is free. So moral of the story be as visible as you can be!
