How to sell specialty beads part 4: Organise contests

November 12, 2008 at 18:17 Leave a comment

Contests are a good way to keep your customers involved and motivated. People gladly take on a challenge when there is a possibility to show off their creativity and skill. Especially if you have an internet store and have little possibility to communicate with your customers – contest is the answer.

Contests are most often organised around a theme, but contests around a certain material or a bead sort exist as well. Naturally, you will have to give a prize to the winner. But the prize does not have to be very expensive. Often a poster with the names of the winners and an exhibition of the winning works is enough. A little bead shopping spree (in your shop!) will make many of your customers participate.

Fire Mountain Gems organises beading contests every year.
