Team 2 Mini Roadshow
Hello all, it’s time for team 2 to post another event in the blog again! In this post, we would like to introduce you to our Mini Roadshow that was held on the 12 June 2013, from 10.30am to 3.30pm. For this event, we were supplied by Cheers to sell sweets, chocolates, snacks and drinks.

We only had a few days to plan for this event as we were all involved in Green Fair from 4th to 6th June. In a short period of time, our team came up with an interesting concept called ‘My Eye Candy’. We were inspired by the “eye candy” of NYP. As we were selling sweet products and nice snacks, our team decided ‘Sugar Spice and Everything Nice’ was the best tagline.
During our planning period, we were given a sales target of $250. It may sound little, but it was a challenge for us as our roadshow was held during school’s term break! Still, we managed to overcome it and not only did we hit the sales target, WE SURPASSED IT!
We were so excited and had a great time during the event! Although the set up was tiring as we had to carry heavy boxes of stocks and fixtures, it was satisfying to see our booth beautifully presented! We had a fun time interacting with customers, recommending our items and making sales! One reason we managed to hit our sales target was because we had support from our team members as well as team 3. They came down to show their encouragement by buying things from us and it was much appreciated. We also had two team members assigned to mobile selling during lunch break which helped boost our sales!
Support from both teams!
Getting ready for mobile selling!
Some of the questions were raised by customers who are concerned of the product origin and what it contains so we learnt that product knowledge is important. It is also vital that we keep a good count of the goods sold especially those on promotions as well as the money collected and change given to ensure that there will be no discrepancies at the end of the day.
Overall, each of us learnt the value of team work and had a sweet experience!
