From the Desk of Stephanie Padovani
Dear Fellow Wedding Pro,
If you’d like a step by step action plan to attract quality leads, high-end clients and book weddings at the price you really deserve, you’re in the right place.
I have a few questions for you to make sure we’re on the same page:
- Do you need more quality leads for your wedding business?
- Do you want a wedding business to pay the bills AND give you the money and freedom to travel and spend time with your family?
- Overwhelmed with too much to do and not enough time to do it?
- Wondering how are you going to fill your calendar with high-end wedding bookings this year?
If you answered “YES” to any of these questions, you’re not alone. That’s exactly the frightening reality so many of us are facing and what happened to us when we started out.
We were sick of working our “day jobs” at IBM, spending longs days in a corporate environment neither one of us could stand. When Jeff and I finally got up the courage to look at our finances, we discovered we were $500 short every month!
We knew we had to do something fast.
When we started our wedding entertainment business back in 2001, we had no wedding experience, no leads and no money. I didn’t know where to start, but I couldn’t let that stop me.
We based our business on what the competition was doing, figuring they must know something we didn’t. We wasted hundreds of dollars on worthless Yellow Pages and magazine ads, because we didn’t know any better. We did bridal shows and even cold calling (yuck!) trying to get leads, with little results.
I knew there had to be a better way.
I started studying internet marketing, spending thousands of dollars we didn’t have on courses and trainings. One day it hit me:
I didn’t have to work my butt off doing ALL the marketing strategies they said I was “supposed to do.” I just needed take a few simple actions every day to get the leads and bookings.
In fact, only two simple strategies were all it took to book our wedding business solid, with $123,000 in annual sales...even during the Recession!
I refined a method to make marketing simple and easy, no sleazy sales required. Over time, we became the #1 wedding expert in our highly competitive market with more leads than we could possibly book.
Things were going great for us, but I couldn’t stand seeing our wedding professional friends struggling to get the bookings because I remembered that awful feeling of desperation in my stomach from staring at our empty calendar.
So I started sharing what we’d learned. First, with through our local wedding blog and website here in New York. A few simple changes, and a photographer friend was able to start booking more of her meetings immediately. Another DJ was able to quit his job and go full-time working weddings after coaching with us for only a few months.
It’s my mission to empower wedding professionals to create the businesses and lives they love. I’m tired of seeing these passionate entrepreneurs fighting the competition for table scraps like hungry dogs...when I know how simple it can be to stand out, get noticed and create a constant stream of real leads.
Now I’d like to share what what we’ve learned through hard-earned experience about what get real results.
"I just signed another one...This week looks like a $5,000 week!"
Wedding pro attached evidence of his sales income after sending ONE Fast Profit email.
“I booked 3 weddings. THREE. IN ONE WEEK! I changed absolutely NOTHING about my services or packages, etc. All I did was meet with them in person, followed those amazing phycology techniques, and their checkbooks were on the table. It created an emotional attachment that no price list could ever do alone. I can't believe how well this worked. I am SHOCKED. THANK YOU for completely turning around my business.”
"I booked my highest package ever, after you encouraged me to add a "Kitchen Sink" Package, which never existed before. I also transformed my image and website, so that I was able to raise my rates, and work less and make more. I was able to confidently raise my rates, and separate myself from the pack, so that the price shoppers can go somewhere else. I now deal with more qualified buyers who are excited to work with me! I had a 16% increase in my sales compared to last year, and expect it to go up even more this coming year, with the help of Steph and Jeff."
“I have booked $12,000 worth of gigs in the past 10 days. I would say that is a pretty darn good ROI! I am getting better interaction with clients AND we are getting higher budgeted brides. Such a simple idea, and it really works!”
Make Up by Anjeh
“I edited my package document and raised the prices. I sent it to some brides last night. I woke up to an email from a bride ready to book me. You guys are helping me so much. Thank you!!”
“My new website was *just* launched yesterday…with my slightly raised prices. It’s already working, though – I booked a client who didn’t bat an eye at the new rates.”
“Well that was fast! I booked a lead I’ve been pursuing for over a month and was able to get two brand new clients scheduled for consultation for my higher income services, wedding planning.”
Certified Life Cycle Celebrant & Wedding Officiant
"I am SO impressed! I had 3 inquiries last week and I used the template on all of them. I got 3 responses - thrilled! Then I wrote a follow-up email to a couple of people who had not responded before and sent the 8 Questions link and the link to my kudos page on my website, and THEY responded. I have talked to ALL of them on the phone. I had a meeting with a couple on Friday night and BOOKED THE WEDDING. I have also had another couple ask for a meeting tomorrow!"
Valerie De Silva
“I totally LOVE it. OMG!!! I am so glad that I have met you and Jeff. You are the answer to all my prayers seriously. It actually WORKS!!!! I would love to one day meet you both and give you a big hug as you are my new business mentors. I can't thank you enough for your knowledge, expertise, skill and just CARING.”
Wedding Pro Surveys Reveal These Disturbing Facts:
- The average wedding business surveyed makes only $25,000 per year.
- 84% said they were overwhelmed with information.
- The #1 challenge is not having enough leads.
$25,000 a year is not a liveable wage! It’s no wonder so many are struggling.
So you’ve got this crazy situation where you need more leads, but you don’t have the money for advertising. That means hiring help or paying for expensive training isn’t an option.
And with so much to do, juggling a family, taking care of a home as well as a running a business, you don’t have TIME to add on more tasks.
