Fast Company ran an article this week called "80% of Success is Showing Up -- But Where?" It explores the advantages of face-to-face collaboration over telecommuting. It builds trust! Communicates subtle, non-verbal information! Facilitates brainstorming and idea generation!
So I am getting together with some crafters and artists to have some face to face communications about business. Come out to Smokey Row tomorrow at 11 AM for BUSINESS TIME, my guided networking group. Networking is a bad word for it, but it's the best I've thought of; maybe the meeting will be more like speed dating? Anyway, the purpose will be to meet other makers in the community, and also discuss things we've learned about running a business, marketing ourselves, working booths at festivals, and more.
I hope this will be useful for all levels of BUSINESS PERSON. I also, at this moment, plan to have more events like this at various times of day, knowing that people like us tend to have all kinds of schedules. Click here to RSVP for BUSINESS TIME.
“On his wesbite, Mawoca, Frank shows us how to make a tabletop softbox, which can help photographers - as well as crafters - take pictures of their smaller work in the best possible light. Frank uses his softbox to take food photos for his wife. He paid about $30 for parts, and the results are fantastic.”
Market Day is an intimate event with teeny tiny booths. We like it that way; we’re a short event with brief set ups and tear downs, so small booths help us keep moving.
But this makes for an interesting display dilemma for many vendors: how do I build up and still have a display that looks good?
We love oh, hello friend for stuff just like this: three fantastic posts with craft booth display inspiration.
Yes please: fantastic sign idea from Tarry Planty.
Eight more photos of craft booth ideas. Like this box-register.
