It is one month to go until the June Handmade Markets! While that means that you are in the throes of frantic production, etc, it also means that this is when we start to ramp up our promotion of your attendance at the market. The very first thing we do is feature you on our Market gallery directory. Today we have changed all the profiles on the directory to show the designers who will be attending the June market. These profiles will stay active until two months after the market, so that customers can find you.
That means that this is the time for you to check that you have your best foot forward! Check that your listing is showing the image that you most want to represent your business. Check that it is displaying well! To optimize the display the dimensions should be roughly are 237px x 267px – or at the very least square, so that they don’t distort in the display.
It is also a good time to check that all your details that display are correct! To change your details, or to update your photo, simply log on to your profile through the ‘My Account’ button at the top of the page, using the username and password that you created when you applied to us, then look for the ‘edit’ button and away you go.
Other things to be thinking about at this time include whether you have enough business cards, whether you have great signage, and whether you need to order tables or dividers, or arrange to have power to your stall. The order for these can be found here – Power.
