SOCIAL MEDIA (INSTAGRAM TIPS + TRICKS)
In addition to word-of-mouth, I am a huge fan of Instagram! The reason you likely are browsing this page is because you have connected with me via IG over the years… so let me teach you how I have remained authentic and informative by engaging with my audience. I have intentionally grown an audience of over 3,800+ Instagram followers without buying a single follower. Through IG, I have showcased my work, grown my team, and attracted eager clients who know they want to book us before they are even engaged (and yes, they DO book once they are engaged! #fact). During this session, I will share my methods for what makes my profile and PERSONALITY shine in a sea of hashtags and saturated accounts.
SALES (SERVICE INFORMATION PACKAGES + PROPOSAL TEMPLATES)
Since 2014, I have strategically grown a successful business model that has attracted our ideal clients (kind, genuine, and appreciative). I will share with you how I have built a referral system purely through word-of-mouth (hint: FREE!) that generated over 83% of our bookings in 2018, and over 90% of our current bookings in 2019. I will also show you my confidential quoting and pricing examples that demonstrate how I encourage clients to book upgraded packages that add value to their planning experience while ultimately adding profit for the business.
I will share details about our team’s service packages, proposal templates, and cover the key details that you should cover to differentiate your packages and services from other planners. We will work together on enhancing (or creating) your packages using key messages and information that clients look for when booking their wedding vendor.
This will be your opportunity to ask me ANYTHING. I will candidly share answers to your questions - so be sure to come prepared with a list of specific business or wedding planning questions that you’ve been wanting to ask me!
