If you are looking for a great way to market a home-based business, try becoming a vendor at a trade fair. When you attend a trade show you will be given a table where you get the opportunity to display your product or service to potential targeted customers who have specifically come to the trade show looking for products similar to yours. A Trade show is great because it is typically filled with other business people who understand business and could also be interested in becoming your business partner, so if done correctly it’s an opportunity to kill two birds with one stone. Since trade shows are filled with business owners if you happen to sell a product these customers will most likely be looking to buy on a larger scale potentially increasing your business volume and inevitably your bottom line. Once you finally decide to market your business many people, think that they have to attend those HUGE shows and invest tons of money. That’s not necessarily the case. Many small local events may be inside your area that could potentially be JUST as effective for your home-based business if not better. Many of the smaller local events can be more cost-effective, and at times more productive. People are often more eager to stop and talk at your booth for longer periods. This will allow you to build a better rapport with your potential client.
A great way to find a trade show inside your area is to start with a search at your neighborhood Chamber of Commerce. They should have a listing of events within your area. You can then contact the event planners for each event to get specific pricing for the booth spaces.
