I had an offer the other day from someone who found my sales site and invited me to participate in a show. My first thought, COOL! I have some product I would love to move.
My second thought? No way. Why, you ask? Well I have talked on here before about making sure you are making enough money to warrant your participation. This event wanted $50 for a 5 hour show. Plus it was 2 hours away. Oh and third, it is a first time show with no guarentees on attendance.
Red flags went up in my brain. Lets see, we are talking about $75+ in gas, $50 in fees, plus lunch and my time. But only 5 hours to hopefully sell your product.
Sorry. 3 dings mean that there is not enough incentive for me to do it altho I would love to move some product, it is just not worth it.
Please take the time to add up your value. Your time is a commodity and very precious. How much is too much for you?
