Another one of our favorite ideas is creating a pop-up shop. Start by networking with other local businesses that would benefit well from having you host a pop-up shop. Think of women's boutiques, photographers, coffee shops, or another business in town. Once you find a business to partner with, then you will need to contact the local city hall to inquire about business permits. Lastly, make sure to contact the local health department to determine if you need anything specific for your temporary shop.

Your local Chamber of Commerce is a great place to start the networking process. Join the Chamber of Commerce and start going to the events. You want to try to find a Chamber of Commerce that is pretty active in the community.

Of course, once you implement the marketing plan, you will need to set S.M.A.R.T. goals for your business to determine if your strategy is working. Learn about the importance of setting S.M.A.R.T. goals for your business even without a storefront here.
