5 Reasons To Vend At Atlanta Indie Market
Posted on Tuesday, November 28 2017 01:11:00 PM in POP ATLANTA by Chandra Meadows
The Atlanta Indie Market opens on the 4th Saturday of each month. The next market will open on December 23. We are currently accepting applications for vending. If you have thought about being a vendor at the market and still need a little help deciding if you should, look no further! We have 5 reasons why you should most definitely vend at the Atlanta Indie Market.
There’s a diverse crowd that comes through the Atlanta Indie Market each time the market opens. You may or may not see the same people you saw at the last market. However, you will definitely meet and connect with very interesting individuals. The type of people who attend the markets are people who love art, creativity, and new unconventional experiences. They come in search of good vibes and good deals on dope merch.
The energy created within and around the Atlanta Indie Market is everything. As a vendor, you will feel comfortable because the environment is relaxed. Yes, you are there to work but who says work can’t be play at times? The Indie Market's vibe is liberating and free! No really, the event is really free to attend, which increases the odds of people coming through to make a purchase from you.
Remember back at reason #2 when we talked about work being play at times? Well, at the Atlanta Indie Market, you will have a good time. That’s just a given. From the conversations you will have with people, to the retro games we have available for you to play. When we said the Atlanta Indie Market was a marketplace AND community kickback, we were not joking. It basically feels like you are at a function with music and entertainment, vibing out with friends, except you get to make money at the same time.
Worst case scenario, you have a bad day and don’t sell as much as you had hoped. It happens right? But even if this is the case for you, the vendors who have consistently shown up at the Atlanta Indie Market have increased their exposure if nothing else. So, even if you don’t make as many sales on one Saturday, the fact that you even showed up and was seen, will increase your odds of making even more sales the next time the market opens. Exposure has gotten a bad rep due to people using the term so loosely in the attempt to get free work out of people, but don’t sleep on it. The more people see you, your brand, your company name, your products, etc., the more they are likely to buy from you at some point.
The networking opps at the Atlanta Indie Market are one-of-a-kind. Due to the environment being so relaxed, it’s very easy to strike up conversations with people. Not the fake and phoney convos people usually gravitate to at networking events but real, genuine conversations with attendees and even other vendors. You are bound to make a new business connect, or even a new creative friend!
At the Atlanta Indie Market we are a family of entrepreneurs, culture pushers, artists, misfits, creatives, and art connoisseurs. The market is becoming a staple on the westside of Atlanta.
