For the fourth year, I had a booth at the Cliff Castle Casino Health Fair in Camp Verde, AZ. This year, I also manned the booth for the Tobacco Prevention and Education booth, since I facilitate their Tobacco-Cessation classes in Sedona and the Verde Valley.
I enjoyed meeting people, and talking with them about how to improve their lives. It doesn’t matter if it’s about quitting smoking, using self-hypnosis to change, or having a life coach to help them move forward. I offered resources and information for them to use right away.
This year, I had raffled off a free copy of my CD, “Stress Management Through Self-Hypnosis.” On the table, I had handouts for Recommended Reading, Myths About Hypnosis, How To Relax Yourself, and an article from my newsletter, “Meditate Away Stress.”
Other vendors included an acupuncturist, massage therapist, chiropractor, vitamin distributor, dentist, ophthalmologist, urgent care facility, a couple of health and fitness centers, insurance salespeople, and more. The Health Fair was organized by my friend, Ken Reynolds, who has multiple talents and deserves many kudos for the long hours he put in to make it happen.
At these types of events, I sometimes gain clients and sometimes I don’t. But I don’t ever feel that it’s wasted time because I’m being visible to the community. I’ve found, over the years, that if I don’t gain clients directly from the event, they come to me through other channels. Just putting the energy towards marketing my services reaps rewards.
