Description

the ins and outs and ups and downs of

MARKET TRADING

There are over 250 street markets in London alone, and nationwide it runs into the thousands. Street markets are the life blood of many town centres and can play a vital role in the journey of a new business. You may have an idea that you want to test; you may have an online business that you want to take to the street; you may have an established business and want to test a particular product; whatever the reason - if you are thinking of trading at a market for the first time, or if you have traded at a few markets with mixed success, then this workshop will be time and money well invested.

In this interactive, 3 hour workshop, you will learn:

  • whether trading is right for you and your business
  • the formalities and procedures of street trading
  • how to choose which markets to trade at
  • what the hidden costs of market trading are
  • how to make the most of your stall
  • how to manage your stall
  • the ins and outs of market trading
  • the ups and downs - your reality check - of market trading

About the Trainer

Tracy Francis has a unique mix of knowledge and experience to bring this workshop to you. She has run her own Marketing company for over 20 years, working closely with small businesses, and providing multiple services in the marketing field. Through her Event Management service, she has managed a south west London monthly market for over 5 years, engaging with over 2,000 traders over the years. She also provides training and development to small business in Business Writing, Branding and Social Media.

"I come into contact with so many people who are just starting out, or are new to trading, and they have no background in markets so don't know how they work, what they get, how much they cost, what they need, what questions to ask etc. The information given by the market organisers is not always as detailed as it should be. Then on the customer facing side to the market, many do not know how to display their products well, how to dress their stall (and sometimes themselves!). At each market I find myself spending lots of time with new traders giving them all the tips and tricks to help make their stay a success, and the feedback I get has been extremely positive.

When I am advising traders, I come with a 'marketing' hat on, not just a 'market manager' hat, so am always speaking from a marketing of the business angle, not just having a good trading day but the longer term success of the business."

Tracy was asked to develop a workshop for Market Traders by a CIC in London. Comments from the attendees to that workshop were:

  • Delivered nicely, gave great inside knowledge
  • Lots of different information about ways to market
  • Brilliant material, Tracy was good at keeping the people engaged and I am looking forward to learning more
  • It was excellent, I would like to attend further sessions
  • Excellent and concise

This workshop is being delivered at a variety of venues in different locations throughout South East England, which we are continuing to book through the year. If you are interested in attending but cannot find this event in a close enough location to you, please email tracy@charlieapple.com.
