Often I have been asked by various new starters and also established market traders about promoting their stalls.

Presentation: Present your item in the best friendly way that is attracting and feel comfortable to get closer to the item. Obviously you would display or present your bet item at the from of the stall, however you must put enough effort to make the custom to come inside of your stall and go right at the back to see what item you are selling there. We face challenge every week with our stall at the Portobello Market, as it is 7ft wide and 17ft deep to bring the customer inside of our stall. We always change around our items and that’s way we ensure all items get fair chance to be displayed in various positions.
Be informative: I always try to write the prices in a bigger sign. If the prices can only be seen by going very close to the item then lots of customer would not bother to do so. As Portobello Market being one of the top tourist destinations, we get thousand and thousands of tourists and lots of them I found are shy or hesitance to ask about the price. So a big sign or sticker with prices is does the job and also it helps the tourist to convert the GBP to their own currency.
