Ensure you have plenty of colour flyers/business cards to hand out. Remember not all shoppers will be prepared to buy on the day so be sure to have something for them to take home for future reference.
We suggest having a promotional code/sticker on the flyer should a shopper take a flyer for future reference. The offer may not be as good as what they receive if they make a purchase on the day however an incentive of some kind that will also assist you in tracking all future sales to determine the overall success of your stall.
Make your stall inviting as this will attract more shoppers, be sure not to overcrowd with too many items.
Ensure your signage is clear and sells your business well as that’s the whole purpose of your day.
Clearly price all items and offer market specials to encourage sales.
Connect with the shoppers by starting a conversation; this is a great way to start talking about your product/service.
At the end of the market you may or may not sell a large volume of items, however, remember by being present at the Market your brand will been seen by hundreds of local families plus you will have the opportunity to network with other businesses and that is a great start!
Payment Types / Taking Payment
We suggest you bring at least a $100 cash float made up of gold coins and small notes as most shoppers arrive at the market with $50 notes and very little change.
While cash will always be the main currency at MKM offering a contactless payment option at your stall may help increase your sales especially if shoppers are running low in cash as finding stalls with contactless payment options will allow them to keep shopping!
The most commonly used Contactless Payment Options are Square, Paypal and Direct Debit , however there are many other options available so best to check them out to find one that works for you.
Remember to create a simple sign to show the payments types being accepted at your stall.
