Hey Steel Goat vendors! 👋 We know that not every journey to success is a sprint—it’s more like a marathon filled with learning curves and opportunities for growth. If you’re finding that sales aren’t taking off right away, don’t fret! Our thriving community of over 100 vendors has seen it all, and many started just where you are.
Success at Steel Goat Marketplace isn’t just about waiting for things to happen; it’s about taking charge of your own business narrative. We encourage you to look inward and ask yourself: Are you doing everything you can to stand out among our fantastic customers and fellow vendors in the vibrant Pittsburgh area?
🌈 A Checklist for Success:
- Posting Regularly: Keep your online presence active. Aim for at least one post a week, but don’t shy away from more frequent updates. Once a day is something to aim for!
- Engaging Content: Make your posts interactive and interesting. Polls, behind-the-scenes glimpses, and customer testimonials can go a long way.
- Changing Up Your Space: Refresh your display monthly. It could be a simple shuffle or the introduction of new items—keeping things exciting for customers.
- Sharing Steel Goat Posts: Don’t just wait for us to share your story; actively engage with the community. Share our announcements, events, and give a shoutout to your fellow vendors.
- Self-Advertising: Remind your followers that you’re at Steel Goat Marketplace. Promote special offers, new arrivals, and your unique offerings.
- Utilizing Facebook Groups: If you’re using Facebook, leverage its power by sharing your posts in relevant groups such as “Things to Do in Pittsburgh,” “Crafted in Pittsburgh,” and many more. Expand your reach beyond your page! And the more vendors posting about Steel Goat Marketplace on these pages, the more likely we are to gain new customers, which is win for ALL our vendors!
Remember, your success is in your hands. Use this checklist as a guide to hold yourself accountable and elevate your business acumen. The journey may take time, but every effort you invest brings you one step closer to becoming a thriving, long-term vendor at Steel Goat Marketplace. 🚀✨
