Alan’s been in wedding marketing/sales for over 20 years, working with wedding professionals, large and small. He understands small businesses. What’s more, Alan has literally “written the book” on how to improve your website, entitled “If Your Website Was An Employee….Would You Fire It?”

What’s more important when choosing a wedding venue, the food or the photo ops?

By Blog 2 Comments

I had the good fortune to be consulting the other day with a DJ/Photo/Video company. I sat in on a couple of actual sales appointments with two brides and their mom’s. What was very interesting, and coincidental, is that the second bride considered using the venue that the first bride chose, but she decided not to. While she acknowledged that both are great venues, with excellent reputations for their food and service, the second bride didn’t think there were enough photo opportunities at the venue. The venue she chose is also more expensive.

That alone is not shocking. I’ve heard the same thing for years. I’ve also been talking for years about how reception venues need to be showing more real shots of brides at their most popular photo ops. Advertising is ASPIRATIONAL. You want the prospect looking at your ads and marketing materials to Aspire to be like the person they see in the ads/marketing materials. Read More

What’s the value of an idea?

By Blog 2 Comments

Take a look around you. Everything you see is the product of an idea that someone had at one time. Your desk, your chair, your computer, your shoes, each of those started as someone’s idea. If you’re like me you have lots of ideas on pieces of notepaper, or on a white board in your office. There’s no lack of good ideas. The ideas have no value until someone takes the actions necessary to make that idea a reality.

We act upon our ideas all the time without consciously thinking about them. Some of our ideas are simple. Some are complex. Some will take a lot of time and thought and some can be accomplished quickly.

If you started your own business, that was the product of an idea. If you’ve created a new way of doing your job or craft, that was the product of an idea. Where the magic happens is when you put that idea into action. If you think about doing something, but don’t take any actions, the idea has no value. Not only does it have no value to you, it has no value to the countless others who could benefit from it.
