This may sound like a corporate activity but “networking” with other vintage businesses is a worthwhile thing to do! Being proactive and meeting likeminded people is not only valuable for your business, but offers you some personal support and words of encouragement.
The best ways of networking is via social media or by going to vintage fairs & events. Don’t be concerned if you meet competitors or those offering similar services to you; getting to know people will boost your brand and increase sales.
Here are three reasons why this can really help your business:
Whether it’s about pricing items or mundane tasks like book keeping, having a chance to share information and suggestions is very useful.
A chance to work with others
Whether it’s a photo-shoot or a joint event more opportunities may come your way.
If it’s a question of the best fairs to sell at or where to get your flyers printed, suggestions from others can be invaluable to save you time & money.
