IMHO, even if i posted the rate, i wouldn't consider it an ad. kase di naman ako yung organizer eh. it's like giving fellow bazaaristas or would-be bazaaristas a guideline on how much is it to join bazaars. or what are the upcoming bazaars they can join pa.
oh well, i am no longer a Moderator so not my call haha.
sa totoo lang, madamot ako giving schedules ng bazaars noh, lalo na yun mga sinalihan at sasalihan ko. kase dami mga asungot, sunod ng sunod, mga copycats
ayaw maghanap ng sariling sasalihan, ang daldal ko nga dito ngayon eh
re kita sa bazaars, meron mga bazaars na kahit medyo malaki gross sales namin, if i add up the expenses incurred, super minimal na lang natitira, but the good thing is, mas mabilis nagmove yun stocks namin, some slow moving items nabebenta, plus yun after sales ang minsan habol namin. you can only get so much clients online eh. you have to be visible din around the metro, then direct them to your online store. kahit di bumili sa bazaar, i always instruct my staff to hand out calling cards, kase potential buyers pa rin yun, the mere fact they stopped to your booth and check out your items, interesado sila (well not all LOL).
i ask our staff to explain the concept of online shopping (frustrating but super dami pang pinoy ang di pa nakakaalam ng benefits of online shopping, if only they know haha), paliwanag pano proceso etc. okay naman. kase days after bazaar they will text or email us and say, i saw your booth at the bazaar, or i bought from you at the bazaar, maganda yun nabili ko, i want to buy more (i wish laging ganyan haha).
so bazaar for us considered advertising/marketing expense, a very huge expense lolz
