Sales Team

The Sales Team is the first contact point between us and the general public – so it is a very important job!  It would be nice if you could wear something felted – a felt name badge would be a great place to start.  Wearing some felt gives you a talking point and a way to break the ice with prospective clients.  As this is our first market at Heathcote we will need to inform the general public as to who we are, how to follow or join us, and in particular, when we will be back.  But people don’t want to be talked at – it is easier to inform a prospective buyer (or member) rather than sell to them.  Short simple facts are the key.   For example:

  • Who or what is Feltwest? – a membership group of feltmakers
  • What do we do? – meetings, workshops and events promoting felt.
  • What is felt –  a handmade process using unspun wool – wet and needle – show them a piece of each – you don’t need too much detail, lovely to wear, tactile, versatile.
  • Where to find us – online – hand them a business card, location Alexander Park Craft House
  • How to follow us – on the business card
  • Where to buy – At the Christmas Market but look out on facebook and the web site for other events.

A sale is the final opportunity to reinforce our message with promotional material.  Whilst packaging the item ensure there is a business card and flyer in the bag.  Enjoy the day talking to people about the craft we all love – enthusiasm and joy are contagious. 

Be at the stall at your designated time and stay for your shift.  There is a public carpark below Heathcote on the eastern side. The cost is $2.  Allow 5-10 minutes to walk from the carpark.  Make sure you bring drinking water and be prepared for changing weather.
