Each of us has the Curse of Knowledge, and it’s the same knowledge that can hinder us in the sales process.

Listen to this new, 7-minute episode to get some perspective and clarity on how your customers are seeing you! Read More

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. So, I started thinking about who I knew that had expertise in this area, and my friend from my days at The Knot, Anna Winikka immediately came to mind. 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

Are you designing for yourself or your customers - Alan Berg CSP, Wedding Business SolutionsAre you designing for yourself or your customers?

When you’re designing your website or a marketing piece, are you designing things that you would personally like? Or, are you designing things that your target audience would like. Unless you are the same demographic as your target customer, you may be heading in the wrong direction. And, asking your friends and industry peers may just be looking for “confirmation bias” – learning that what you already know and feel is right.

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

You can't always get what you want - Alan Berg CSP, Wedding Business SolutionsYou can’t always get what you want…

The Rolling Stones got it right when they sang: “You can’t always get what you want. But if you try sometime, you’ll find, you get what you need!” Very often we, or our customers, are asking for something because we know what’s possible. We can’t ask for what we don’t know is possible. Apple was really good at selling us things we didn’t know to ask for.

Listen to this new 9-minute episode for some ideas on how you can ask a better question to find out why someone (maybe you) wants something. And then you can propose something even better. Read More
