Helpful Hints – Buyers

We want our delegates to feel as prepared as possible for our events so that they can get the most benefits possible out of our events. The following Helpful Hints will assist you in navigating this year’s virtual marketplace appointments. You can download the PDF of this information as well.

In addition to these Helpful Hints, we encourage you to review the Must-Know Info for this event.

  1. Complete your online profile
    Remember to include information for your target markets. If you are interested in seniors, educational, or receptive operators, remember to include information specific to each in your profile. This will help ensure that you are only meeting with sellers that can meet those needs.

  2. Find Your Ideal Location
    Whether taking your appointments from home or from the office, be sure that you have a bright, quiet place that is free of distractions for the entirety of your appointments.

  3. Flawless Connection
    Something we would never have thought of for our live events but will be vital for our virtual event is your internet connection. With COVID-19, we have lived in a virtual world for most of the year and you have likely participated in plenty of video meetings or webinars. Most internet connections will be able to handle video calls without issue, but if you have noticed any lagging, freezing, trouble connecting or your connections occasionally drops out during your recent video calls, please contact your internet provider before OMCA Marketplace to address the connection issues. You won’t want your internet to rob you of your chance to make profitable business connection.

  4. Look Your Best
    Although you may be taking your appointments anywhere from your kitchen to your office, be sure to dress appropriately for a business meeting. We still require business-casual attire at this event and with the virtual platform, there are additional items to consider when looking your best such as lighting and camera angles.
