Document your Wedding Planning & Create an Operations Manual – Kiki, who is also a wedding officiant, shared her experience with a missing marriage license and the importance of documenting what you do as a wedding planner. I agree, it’s not a fun task, but it’s a great way to train your staff and every successful wedding planner should have an operations manual.
A Great Audio Book – Currently, I’m reading The Pumpkin Plan by Mike Michalowicz. To get your free audiobook go to ConfettiRadio.com/audible.
Making the Decision to Start a Wedding Planning Business – Any business that you start takes time and a special level of commitment. If you’re ready to make that commitment to launching your wedding business but you’re not sure where to start or what forms you need or where to meet your clients for that all-important first meeting, then the Wedding Business Guide might be what you’re looking for.
Launch Privately… – Just because you’ve launched your wedding business doesn’t mean that you need to publicize it…right away. Remember, news is relative to when it’s announced; not when it happened. Take a moment to work out some of the kinks and nuances of being a business owner before you shout it from the rooftops, okay?
Selling Great Wedding Accessories – Have you ever noticed the inspiring WeddingStar wedding accessory magazine on newsstands? Did you know that as a wedding business owner, you can sell those very same accessories to your clients? Well, you can! This is a great way to get your foot in the door with potential customers and a great way to up-sell your existing brides and grooms. The merchandise practically sells itself!
