Contact, communication, connection: the three C’s to boosting your bottom line during the busy summer season. Whether you’re a creative who cringes at the idea of interacting with the public or an extrovert who enjoys getting to know your booth visitors, read on for tips to increasing sales.
It’s the time of year when kids start anticipating that last bell of the year, signaling months of summer fun and freedom. But, for tens of thousands of children hunger begins when school ends. This month we put an apple on our Giving Tree for the All Faiths Food Bank which works to end child hunger.

Art Fair Show Tips: How to Make More Sales
by Carolyn Edlund for Artsy Shark
Make a personal appearance and be accessible.
It’s amazing how many times exhibitors are simply not in their booths during festival hours. At times this may be unavoidable, but often artists have a level of discomfort and stress that finds them socializing elsewhere, or they subconsciously avoid dealing with the public.
It can be stressful to work a show, promoting your art or handmade work and trying to close sales – no doubt about that. But you cannot sell anything if you aren’t physically present to do so. If you’ve shied away from this before or feel anxiety about exhibiting, resolve to be present in your booth as much as possible to develop a comfort level.

The FestivalNet Giving Tree
Over the last five years, the All Faiths Food Bank 'Campaign Against Summer Hunger' has become one of the strongest lines of defense against child hunger in two Florida counties. Last year, the campaign provided nearly 36,000 children with almost 3 million meals!
Our IT Guru, Richard, chose the non-profit to receive a portion of Festivalnet.com’s gross profits this month.
