Last year was the first year we were a vendor at the Ocean County Fair. We were there representing DirecTV, Sirius/XM, and a few other things. We also went there to promote the installation side of the company. Finding a reasonable price for a tv, or stereo installation isn’t that easy. I also decided to try and promote inexpensive CCTV systems. We had quite a few interested people.
This year we are pleased to announce that we are going to be at the Ocean County Fair again. At the fair this year we are going to be promoting DirecTV, Sirius/XM, Camera Systems, and also our newest venture… Solar Electricity for your home.
The best part of the fair in comparison to an actual storefront was that I only had to pay a small fee for the booth, and present a certificate of liability insurance. The fair seems to be a good way to get information out, and also get some business.
If you are in Ocean County then stop by the Ocean County Fair between July 10 and July 15.
I have never been a vendor at the Ocean County Fair before this year. I have however been a patron of the fair. This year there doesn’t seem to be as many dedicated people in the tents. There are people that don’t show up for the whole day that ruin it for others. On top of that they also don’t help their companies image because they can’t dedicate the time that they should, but they leave their awnings, and table skirts up and leave very early in the afternoon. I guess all commission based bankers are the same. They do what they want, and who cares what anyone else wants.
There is a window company, water softener company, and a few other companies here. A good portion of the spaces are taken by Non-Profits. The Democrats, and the Republicans were so close it isn’t even funny. They should honestly try to get a bigger mix of businesses. I fully see how it works. People stop at my table to purchase, but then see a charity next to me. Most of the people detour, and go to the next table to do the charitable thing.
I understand this, and donate my time too. The fair committee just needs to rethink everything that they are doing. I have a business spot that I paid a pretty sizable sum for. I was surprised to find out that I have to close down, and open the tent flaps. This would be fine if the flaps were for each vendor. No… They are for 4-5 vendors. There should be someone that comes and opens, and closes them.
I also noticed that ride tickets cost a small fortune. I am understanding that some of the rides broke down. With this in consideration they should have reduced the price of the ride tickets.
