I have written before on finding locations and these two tips come by the way of Pocono HotDogs. Pocono was on Hot Dog Vendor Radio a couple of months ago and shared these with us. You can listen to that episode free here. Since giving us these wonderful tips, I have received numerous messages about how effective it was for some of you. I wanted to share it again for those that missed it.
Thumbtack is a website that allows you to list your services so that people in need of a vendor can contact you. One radio listener booked 3 hot dog vending gigs in the first 24 hours of registering.
AlltimeFavorites.com is another site that is similar to thumbtack. Be sure to list yourself there as well. You never know what potential awaits.
Be sure to follow Pocono HotDogs on Twitter too.
Remember Rob T. my radio co-host talked about his rack cards.
Some of you may not realize it, but I has a YouTube channel for vendors. It is loaded up with videos on different topics and has tons of tips and information that will help about anyone.
Be sure to check out the playlists on the right hand side of the YouTube page. I have tried to organize it so that you can find everything easily. If you have an idea for a training video, let me know in the comments below and I'll see what I can do.
Don't forget the blog has tons of great stuff too. In the top right corner you will find a search box. Say your looking for info on commissaries, just type in commissaries or commissary and it will automatically pull up posts where I have discussed those.
How about some deals? BensCarts new umbrellas are 9 feet in diameter and come in Red, Yellow or Red and Yellow (alternating panels) Also check out the chip clip deal. No one has a deal this sweet. 2 chip clips that hold a total of 48 bags for only $14.50. If you need something – click a picture below to order.
I need pictures! BensCarts.com is coming out with a brand new website design and I need your help. Take a picture of you and your cart, you holding the course book; hot dogs saved my life or even better, you the cart and the book all together, one big family photo – and you could be featured on the New HotDogCartStore.com site.
Want to really make me happy; email it to me with a little quote. Maybe something short and sweet. Emphasis on sweet. Thank you very much! Email email@example.com
Frank-Yankers: Occasionally I receive a FrankYanker, it's a phone call where someone has called health department to ask questions and stir the pot a bit. Listen in live to the radio show to hear these funny conversations.
