  • People buy and choose with their eyes. It’s extremely important to present your products in as much visually appealing way, as possible. Stall must look fresh and clean. Also person who sells products must look good, clean, and be nice.
  • Also you must have clean and good signs on your stall. People will see your sign first and stall’s name first.
  • You also need to have your own sales system. Good quality products that you offer, similar stall look every time, similar vendor’s clothing. Customers like the constant proven look and the system and will be happy to come back to it. If you always have completely different items and a completely different stand design, it will not attract regular customers.
  • When you sell clothes, glasses or jewelry, you should have a mirror on your stall. When a customer is interested in a product, tell him that there is a mirror and he can try on. This will encourage many people to buy.

You can create a website with news and information about your business. You can also create a group on Facebook. A good idea might also be to create a newsletter for your customers, in which you will inform your clients about your latest products.

To encourage as many customers as possible to follow you on the Internet, it is best to offer them a discount for a regular customer, or access to extra services.

You can use your website or social media (e.g. Instagram) to let your customers know what you do and who you are. This will allow you to establish a relationship with customers and it will significantly increase your profits.


Remember that each market has a slightly different specificity and people most often buy different things in different places. Watch carefully what people buy, what they need and what goods they ask for.
