Home Show Selling: Making your Home Shows Payoff $$$$: Don’t spend the money going to a home show unless you learn the difference between just being at a Home Show and Home Show Success. Learn the various techniques that will produce leads and sales. Some people exhibit at home shows to do business, and others go to get a feel on how business is. There is a system and technique, on how to exhibit and work home shows.  

Proper Marketing & Planning: Home Show season is around the corner. Within the next couple of months, millions of consumers around the country will be attending a Home Show. Home Shows, fairs and specialty shows are an excellent way to get exposure, recognition, and to generate leads.

Is adequate staffing available? What are the show hours? What kind of training do individuals have who will be working the show? How qualified are they? Are they outgoing and personable? 

General manpower requirements for home shows are two people for every 80 sq. ft. The reason why staffing requirement is so critical is based on consumer behavior at shows. Studies have shown that of all the people who might stop and talk with you at your booth, 20% of the people will not wait to talk to a company representative if they are busy, 15% will only wait 30 seconds, 40% will wait 1 minute and 25% will wait 3 minutes. What’s the consumer’s reasoning behind this? The consumer who might have an interest in your

product, thinks of a couple of things. First, that...
