Here I offer some of the content of my talk. I cannot reiterate everything, but hopefully there will be useful information here for you.
You will find links to each blog I mentioned in order of its appearance in my talk. You will also find a version of my Powerpoint presentation, complete with do's and don'ts and other info, that you may view directly here within this post. (I discovered Slideshare while preparing this post by googling "how to put powerpoint into blogger." I love the internet!)
My talk was one of several given by different presenters during the craft show. On the previous day, artist's advisor Nicole Carroll gave a wonderful fresh take on the finer points of selling, offering useful suggestions for improving your sales technique through listening and building a relationship with the customer. (I'll find out if a handout from her talk is available and if so I'll try to post it.)
Please feel free to leave a comment here if you have any questions or if I've overlooked something important, and I'd be happy to address it. Thanks for your interest, and happy blogging!
