Anja Winikka - Pay Over Time For Weddings? - Alan Berg CSP - Wedding Business Solutions PodcastAnna Winikka – Pay over time for weddings??

I saw an article recently on The Knot that was talking about how couples are now asking for a pay-over-time feature for their weddings, similar to how they can get that for so many purchases these days.

Her company, Maroo, offers this (and other payment services for wedding & event pros), and on this episode she explains what Pay Over Time is, how it works, and it’ll give you some ideas on how you might make more sales having this in your toolbox. And… listen to the end for a very, very special offer Anna made for my listeners – it’s like free money!  Read More

Listen to this new 14-minute episode for some ideas on how you can learn to look at your site, and your marketing pieces differently, so you can get better results! Read More

Are You Selling With Your Wallet - Alan Berg CSP, Wedding Business SolutionsAre You Selling With Your Wallet?

When I’m doing sales training, very often I find that some salespeople have trouble asking for a higher price, or an upsell, because they wouldn’t buy those things themselves. Or maybe they’ve never spent that much money on an event, or anything, in their personal lives. They’re selling with their own wallet, instead of letting the customer buy with their wallet.

Listen to this new 10-minute episode for some ideas on how you, and your team, can learn to more comfortably ask for the higher dollar sales, and upsells. Read More
