New e-Book: The Small Business Guide To Tradeshows (Free Thru Saturday)

entrepreneur selling wholesale trade showI have a new e-book that’s just been released that focuses on what small businesses need to know to make tradeshows work for them.  Titled, The Soup to Nuts Small Business Tradeshow Guide: What every artisan, craftsman, and handmade entrepreneur needs to know about growing their wholesale business through tradeshows, the book is written specifically for small business owners who don’t have a lot of money and need to maximize their tradeshow experiences.  The e-book is available on the Kindle platform* and is currently free to download.  But you’ll need to act fast because on Sunday the price goes up to it’s normal $5.99.

e-Book Description:

If you’ve ever dreamed of seeing your products in catalogs, showcased in prestigious online stores, stocked in boutiques, or carried by brand-name retailers, then tradeshows can be one of the most efficient ways to get your products seen by retail buyers.  But tradeshows can also be incredibly expensive and intimidating for entrepreneurs who don’t have a million-dollar marketing budget or a staff of sales people.  Written for the solopreneur or small business entrepreneur with a specific focus on artisans, this guide takes you through the steps necessary to successfully exhibit at tradeshows.  If you’re looking to grow the wholesale side of your business via tradeshows, this is the one resource you need.

Topics Include:

  • Finding the right tradeshow for your business
  • Understanding the difference between buyers, distributors, brokers, and sales representatives and the role each of them plays
  • Knowing how to price your products right so that you make money even when selling wholesale
  • Learning key wholesale terms used in business
  • Uncovering what to take into account before, during, and after a tradeshow to make it a success
  • And a checklist to help you keep everything on track and on time!

It goes without saying that reader reviews help other readers determine which books to try.  If you do download the book and read it, I’d love it if you could leave an honest review on Amazon’s site with your feedback and opinion.  And by honest I mean that if you love it you write that but if you hate it you write that too.  I’m not, nor will I ever, solicit only good reviews.  If you’d prefer not to leave a review on Amazon but still want to share with me what you think, I can always be reached at info (at) smallfoodbiz (dot) com.

*As a note, books sold via Amazon’s Kindle platform do not require a Kindle to read it.  You can download Kindle books to your iPad, your smartphone, or even your home computer.  Click here for more information from Amazon on how to do that.

This e-book is actually part of a larger project I’m working on that will (hopefully!) come out early next year so stay tuned for more information on that!
