Phobias are tough to work through, no matter what the complexity or simplicity. Finding your way through a fear of flying isn’t going to be an easy task, and in the short term you may only be able to belittle the effects it has on you.

If your mind can’t focus on the fear of flying, or your environment, there is no reason to have an anxiety attack. After all, you wouldn’t have an anxiety attack of flying while sitting at home. Following this method of thinking, you could try to keep your mind preoccupied so you won’t have time to realize your surroundings. It may take some growing accustomed to, since you could be too panicked at first to focus on a book or movie.

Try these tips out and see for yourself.

First tip, sending a personal, pen-written note with your thanks and hope for continued business in the future. Writing the thank you note makes the whole thing more customer-involving, and makes it very appealing for the customer at hand. This involvement makes the customer more enthusiastic with his business with you, so you can expect a call back or another deal in the future. Make the note as personal as possible and don’t make it mechanical or scripted. Let the customer think “Now here’s someone who thinks of me. I can’t wait to see if he has something else!”

You have carefully planned every step of the way and you are so eager as to try and sell your wares, hoping you can make a few bills and try and gain back your capital (hopefully making a nice amount of profit on the way.

First and foremost, contact your town’s administrator regarding the festival details, especially in cases like renting out spaces or tables within the grounds. It’s a very expensive deal, but its a great opportunity for you to get yourself known and to sell your stuff at the same time. Beats going to the mall for a three day sale on your stuff in which people hardly know even existed.

By reality’s turn, everyone is not what you would think to be: cold, callous, heartless and not at all interested by everything around him (or more specifically, your goods). There are people around you who would be highly interested about your business and your products. They could be that agent for a company, a starter in a business perhaps or just some random person who is idling his time away. Different people, same objective. You need marketing materials to supplement their knowledge about your product.

You need devices to promote your name and your trademark, and the best way to do so is by using a marketing material.These are little items that could make the customer remember you when they need something of your expertise. Perhaps like a business card that is easy on the pocket, a flyer for when you need to include a lot of details but can’t fit on that small card, a pamphlet for a necessary introduction and explanation of your business, or a souvenir, for being extravagant for your customer.
