GRINDFEST: 10x Your Sales On A Local Festival

Participating in a local festival is a great way to get your product or service in front of a large number of potential customers. However, with so many other vendors and activities competing for attendees’ attention, it can be challenging to stand out and make sales. In this blog, we will discuss how to 10x your sales on a local festival using the solutions from Black Wall Street organizer of the Grindfest 2023 event.


The first step to 10x your sales is to prepare well for the festival. You should aim to position yourself as the authority on the product or service you are offering. Start by deciding on the product or service you want to sell. Make sure that it is something that is good for your customer, good for the festival, and good for you.

For example, you can sell items festival-goers may need at the event, such as…

  • sunscreen
  • bug repellant
  • umbrellas
  • rain jackets/ponchos
  • blankets
  • towels
  • lawn chairs
  • coolers
  • thermos/to-go mugs
  • etc.

You can also offer services like…

  • face painting
  • balloon animals
  • phone charging stations
  • hair/makeup
  • photo booth
  • games
  • clothing
  • art
  • toys
  • home decor
  • jewelry
  • handbags
  • sunglasses
  • belts
  • hats
  • etc.

Additionally, you can sell food and drink items that are handheld or easy to eat while walking around.

When deciding on your pricing, make sure that it is something that your customers can afford and are willing to pay. It should also fit the theme of the festival and the lifestyle of the attendees.

Most importantly, your pricing should help you reach a financial goal. Think about how many items you need to sell at what price to achieve your desired financial outcome.

1 X $100 = 100
10 X $100 = 1,000
100 X $100 = 10,000

Next, you need to decide on your partners. You should get as many people as possible (but at least 10) to advertise your products and services. You can also use coupons and giveaways to attract more customers and build your list every day.


The next step is to position yourself well on social media. Create a 45-day social media calendar with 80% strategic content and 20% relational content. Strategic content can include definitions, how-to guides, little-known facts, testimonials, etc. Relational content can be personal stories and behind-the-scenes footage. Post 3 to 6 times per day to keep your audience engaged and interested.



Finally, perform well during the festival itself. Use a 10-day countdown to build up momentum and generate excitement among potential customers. Treat your booth like a store and make sure that you have something for every price point. Make it easy for people to buy from you by offering multiple payment options and having a landing page for follow-up.

In conclusion, by following these tips from Black Wall Street organizer of the Grindfest 2023 event, you can 10x your sales on a local festival.

Prepare well, position yourself effectively on social media, and perform well during the festival itself. By doing so, you can increase your sales, build your customer base, and grow your business.
