TOP RETAILER/BEST SOCIAL NETWORKING OR VIRAL NETWORKING
Craig and Michele Escude, owners
What spaces do you have in your gallery? How do you use them to get people into the gallery?
We have one main gallery floor, devoted mostly to sales. Within that area, we have a stage, so we have live music. We’ve brought in a lot of customers because we offer something unusual. We do have a simple catering kitchen. The back space can be used for rehearsal dinners, board meetings, seminars, all-day meetings, showers. We offer discounts to nonprofits.
How do you market your business?
We do social networking; Facebook and Twitter are a part of marketing that no one should be without. We started marketing as soon as we bought the building. Every day I post one item to say, Hey, look at this.
