Has anyone exhibited at a home and garden show/ home improvemen
We sell pond supplies over the net. There is a local home show i
that would give us expousred in a 50 mile radius. the registian i
plus joining the local chamber of commerce for $225. With product
samples, catalogs, bussiness cards etc. I'm looking at around $750-
$1000. I'd need to get around $1500 - $2000 in sales over the nex
60 days after the show.
Has anyone had good or bad luck with these shows?

No experience but sounds like a lot of bucks to do something tha
be much cheaper to do with local newspaper ads. You are also not
accounting for the time you will have to sit at a booth at the show
plus the effort it will take in getting exhibits together. My son'
had a craft business where she did a lot of shows and business ha
slight return on investment. Better to concentrate on areas where
return is better.
i agree with the others it would make more sense to put a really goo
on your web site (if u have one) as well as spend the money o
such as putting flyers in some really good newspapers that have
customers inside and outside of your area. also try putting you
local and area radios that might help to generate better sales. goo
