My daughter had these two small orange clipboards that she handed to the people who visited my booth and she let them fill out a form to enter into a chance to win a FREE Photo Session.
This is the cute jar in the back where I would then drop the info card for the drawing in.
A close up shot of my brochures.
I offered mints and I put my press printed cards out in from for people to pick up.
I made this little sign to announce the drawing.
Oh, look it's me!
My beautiful daughter.
And now on to the actual items and set up. I rented an orange table cloth ( I will buy one for the next time but it was only $7) I used boxes and styro foam under the orange to give height. I bought green and teal tulle to use as a decorative item, this I think would have been better had the table been bigger, but I think it worked out okay. The monitor I was told should have been in the middle and now I see it and I do agree, thank goodness no one knocked into the table or it could have fallen off. I used my iPad to play a slide show of all of my images in all of my galleries on my website, it even played the music you hear on my website. This I think was the best thing, I am so glad I did not go with the album, no one stayed long enought to flip through a full album. I did see a few across the room linger and watch the slide show a bit, so it was worth it.
These are little bitty wooden easel I found at Walmart, I painted them orange to match and the 5x7 prints are mounted on a heavy card stock.
This is the 16x20 print that I put in a poster frame (painted orange) and then I bought a table top artist easel from Hobby Lobby and painted it orange too.
This an 11x14 print that I put in a frame that I painted orange and then I used this small metal easel from Hobby Lobby that I painted orange too. The maternity image is a 12x16 print that I spray mounted onto foam core board and then trimmed it down, I was out of time and didn't have a chance to order a foam mounted picture. I did use a foam square behind both pictures to help them stand up straight.
For the 8x10s I just used the acrylic stands you find at Walmart for $2.50.
So that sums it all up....I do plan to make some visual changes for the next booth.
I was asked if I thought this was a benefit to me and my business, well my motto is "You have to spend $ to make $" LOL....I didn't spend that much really. I did get a few inquiries and then today I had three emails from people who said "I saw you at the small vendor show and I want to schedule a session".
I think it could turn out good at least I gave out plenty of brochures.
