Sales Tips:

  • Students may use the paper-based order form when approaching potential buyers. Print multiple copies of this form and write the student's name at the top of the form. This is your sales tool to discuss the available ad sizes, cost and instructions with your potential ad buyers.
  • Students should direct the ad buyer to the instructions in the middle blue section of the form for how they will access the online ad form.
  • After going over the instructions, students should leave the form with the ad buyer.
  • Buyers must access the online ad sales form using either the direct links on the form (bit.ly/2022adsales or QR code). Buyers will not be required to login if they access the direct link.
  • Buyers will upload their artwork and pay for their ad directly on the website. Make sure they know the student's name and know to include it on the online form when asked.
  • Pay by Check Option: Buyers who prefer not to pay with credit card may do so using the "Pay Offline by Check" option. Students may turn in checks to Alumni on November 15 or ad buyer may mail to the Alumni PO Box. Artwork must still be submitted digitally. 
  • If you run into problems, contact sbffa.showguide@gmail.com. Please be sure you have read through the above instructions carefully first before reaching out.

Sales Incentive:

Exhibitors who exceed their minimum sales requirement will be eligible for a cash bonus!

  • $100 award for every $1,000 in excess of the minimum requirement. Example: When minimum sales requirement is $350, $100 award will be given if student sells $1,350 in ads; $200 total award will be given if student sells $2,350 in ads, etc.
