Tips for Successful National Alpaca Farm Days
Tips gleaned from our customers experience over the years:
Email your current customer list.
CALL those stronger farm prospects.
Tell your local paper/events mag - they love this stuff!
Local radio might just come do a show!
Put signs on the road (with CLEAR dates/times) 3 days before.
Put up a flyer at feed, pet and vet establishments.
Invite local knitters/spinners to hang out, free snacks and tea.
Can you setup a safe petting area or "selfie" booth?
Google "public events in my area" to find more ways!
Think how you'd handle it if you get a HUGE crowd!
AT THE EVENT:
An alpaca "Selfie Booth" can have an amazing positive effect.
Guide the flow of people to stop by your alpaca products!
Have water, tea, snacks near your products area.
Have some theme music playing in the background.
Wear alpaca clothing, jewelry, t-shirts to set the theme.
Make sure alpaca products are part of the farm story.
Put out signs, handouts and tell folk
you'll have open days for Christmas season.
Get people to sign up on email/phone list (gift drawing?)
Have alpaca souvenirs to sell or even give away:
- Our Stickers, Pens, etc.
- Alpaca shaped Cookies
- Samples of alpaca fiber with your card
Have alpaca products available for sale!
Have some winter alpaca gift items on display.
You may be surprised at the early season sales and
your visitors will know to come back later!
