We have a great crowd coming through the building and Main Street has the best traffic for the Rally. However, it is not a guarantee that you will be successful, your success depends upon your effort. Here are some tips to make your rally a profitable one:
- Research your product offering and pricing. Make sure it fits with the biker/rider market.
- Your booth should be clean and organized. Professional signage and displays will help. Use skirting on tables to hide storage boxes or back stock.
- Make sure your staff is knowledgeable about your product and engages people. Staff sitting down, looking at a cell phone will not meet your sales goals.
- Adjust – don’t be afraid to adjust your display, move items around, change pricing; it may take a few tweaks to find what works best.
- Take care of yourself. You have over 13 hours a day to sell for 9 days, it is a long week. You need to make sure you/your staff are getting rest and eating well.
