"Alan is a fantastic speaker, with a vast amount of practical, yes practical, knowledge.

In fact, I learned more in the first half hour of his presentation, than I did by reading a dozen Sales / Marketing books.

Most important, however, is the fact that Alan does not simply, speak for the sake of speaking, he actually, “goes out of his way”, to make certain the audience really gets the gist of his presentation."

There never seem to be enough hours in a day, so what’s a wedding pro to do? The good news is that there’s a lot that you can and should be doing, you just need a little help, a little perspective or maybe a big nudge.

11:00am-12:00pm – second session – websites

5 reasons why brides will leave your website in 5 seconds

Is your website “sticky”? Do brides come to it and stay for a while? Or, do they bounce right off of it and move on to your competitors in the blink of an eye? Whether you love your site or hate it, you have to get brides to stick around and take action or you have no chance of getting their business.

In this session you’ll find out what you’re doing right, and wrong, and easy things you can do to improve the conversion of your visitors into customers. 

What you’ll learn:

•  What site features are the biggest turn-offs

•  How to gain a better perspective on how your site is doing

•  The number one way to get more brides to contact you

•  Easy things you can do to improve your site, today

Followed by real website evaluations of businesses in attendance… are you brave enough to let everyone see your site?

1:00pm-2:00pm – Closing session – Sales techniques

Close More Sales Today

Whether you love to sell or hate it, if you don’t close the sale there’s no food to cook, dresses to sew, images to capture, flowers to arrange, music to play, weddings to coordinate… you get the idea.

You can do everything else well (marketing, social networking, advertising, websites, conversion, SEO and ROI), but you still have to take that final step and close the sale. Love it or hate it sales is an integral part of your wedding business.

In this session Alan will give you the tools you need to close more sales, including:

•   When to ask for the sale

•   How to ask for the sale

•   How to see the buying signals more clearly

•   Plus: we'll reveal the number one skill you need to close more sales

 

2:00pm-2:30pm - Q&A

"Best speaker ever! When Alan talks, people listen. He also breaks down his message to something his audience can walk away with and use immediately in their own business. Alan is professional, possitive, inspiring, and knows how to relay his message to his audience while keeping thier attention the entire time. After Alan speaks the crowd buzzes with enthusiasm about the topic."
