These Bazaars Are Accepting Applications

What makes a bazaar successful? Good sales, of course!

But what makes sales good aside from saleable products and, well, engaging sales people?

Two words:
1. Organizers
2. Foot-Traffic

Efficient and Effective Organizers

You may have an event with thousands of members or attendees but if your organizer didn’t promote the event or planned the event properly, it will affect your sales. You may have incredibly good promoters as organizers but if they can’t get enough people through the door, it will affect your sales. What makes a good organizer?

1. Established network. I’m not just referring to social networking. In fact you may have 1,000,000 likes and followers but that doesn’t guarantee that you will have 10% of that as your attendees. We’re talking about old-fashioned networking – face to face, organization to organization marketing. The more organizations and groups you get involved to be actively involved in your bazaar, the bigger the chance it will be successful.

2. Location. They know where’s the best place to hold a bazaar that will be comfortable for both the sellers and the buyers. It is accessible, enough parking, cool with enough comfort rooms to accommodate a large crowd.

3. Track record. A good organizer has a track record. Word gets around and happy vendors means good sales.

Foot Traffic

What makes a bazaar “big”? Is it the number of celebrities invited to grace the event? Is it the venue? Is it the number of concessionaires? The answer is foot traffic.

Foot traffic means the number of people frequenting or passing by an area. The more people you get to visit your place, the bigger chance that you will get some sales closed. What does a “good foot traffic” mean? That means getting at least 5,000 – 10,000 visitors a day. A day.

Given the above requirements, these two events are biggest bazaars arranged and managed by highly efficient and yes, effective organizers.

St. James Bazaar started in 1991 to help raise funds for the construction of the Church.
Through the years, 100% of the proceeds of the bazaar helped in the following:
1. The construction of the St. James the Great Parish Church from 1991 to 1993.
2. The purchase of the St. James Parking Lot (Cuenca St. Cor. Nasugbu St.) which is now being used as one of the venues of the bazaar.
3. Installation of the airconditioning system of the Main Church.
4. Build the St. James Parish Rectory Annex for the use of the parish priest and the St. James employees quarters.
5. Repairs and maintenance of all Parish structures.
6. St. James Bazaar Committee members do not receive salaries or commissions from the proceeds of the bazaar. They organize and run the bazaar as their apostolate to St. James the Great Parish.
