Thank you everyone for coming out to Urban Street Jam over the last weekend. We hope you enjoyed the event as much as we did. There were countless talented individuals in the house, putting up a great show and entertainment for everyone. A big thank to all you supporters out there who came out and supported us, we truly appreciate it.Cool you had your own booth and shit. In your opinion, was it all worth it? Did the product you sell, and the connections(if any to both), make it worth it? This question is directed not just at Foreground, but everybody else who ran a booth a show.
I've always considered doing one of these, but am unsure if it'd pay off, so pardon me if I'm asking too many questions, just mad curious about the whole thing.
From all the experience we had over the past year, I say its definitely worth it. Attend as much events as you possibly can to get your name out is very important in the development of a startup brand. Exposure is the key. Depends on the type of event you attend, vending fees might varies. When we attend events, our goal is not solely there to make our buck back, but we see it as an opportunity of advertising. Online sales tend to be slower for startups, so your best bet is do offline sales. Once you get the ball rolling, people will come back to you in the future if they like what you bring to the table. Plus, vending out is fun. We meet lots of other vendors and we get all kinds of networking we need to improve our little company. You never know who you'll meet & what connections they have. At the mean time, you'll also have competitors when you attend these events, so what set yourself different from the booth next to you is what will make your stuff interesting.
