  • Alan was amazing, his experience, wisdom, and wit, kept us glued and mesmerized the whole day.
    We are refreshed and renewed, full of sparkles, new ideas, and energy.
    Now, if I could only shut up and sell more 🙂
    Thank you Alan!

    • Alan says:

      Thanks, George, for inviting me out to work with you and the Fab Weddings team. I love what you’ve built and can’t wait to see the new venue.

  • Steve Zimmet says:

    I had a two hour phone consultation with Alan, mainly to discuss our website. Alan was very pleasant and extremely knowledgeable. Virtually all Alan’s suggestions are easily actionable. As a result, I have many items on my to do list, and although I’m still in the early implementation phase, I am excited about Alan’s suggestions and believe they will impact our bottom line in a very positive way.

    • Alan says:

      Thanks Steve, from one musician to another, I really appreciate the opportunity to work with you and your band.

  • The Mastermind Day was incredibly informative. The wedding sales industry is new to me, so I was a sponge and felt fortunate to have this be one of my first opportunities to learn, and learn from the best! I have already used some of the great ideas from Alan in communicating, reviewing materials and sharing with my team. I have changed how I am communicating with my “leads” and it feels good to not just send an email, but make it a conversation. This workshop came at a good time as we are reviewing all our materials and website. THANKS Alan.

    • Alan says:

      Thanks Renee, for coming to the Mastermind Day. I’m so glad you’re energized and ready to take on the world.

  • Nora Sheils says:

    My mind is still reeling from our Mastermind with Alan! Just a short week later and my team is already booking new clients using some of the techniques discussed. Alan is an absolute expert and I could have picked his brain for days. Although my brain was fried at the end of the day, I left excited about my company, our industry and the changes we planned to implement. You will not regret time spent with Alan!

    • Alan says:

      That’s terrific, Nora! I love hearing how you’re already seeing such great results. Can’t wait to hear more.

  • Missy Miller says:

    We had a 2 hour conference call with Alan and we got off the phone with a lot of work to do:) He was wonderful at reviewing our website and giving us ideas and things we could not believe we missed. It was great to have a fresh set of eyes look at the site and give us great feedback. He also did not make you feel like an idiot for things that were kind of no brainers…He also had great advice on marketing and sales follow ups. It was money well spent and now we are even considering having him out to the property for more ideas.

  • After seeing Alan at Wedding MBA and listening to a few of his pod casts, we implemented a few of his recommendations and saw immediate results. We decided to hire Alan for a Mastermind class and get more hands on advice and training. The class was full of information and my head is still spinning with ideas! We are making changes to our website, marketing materials and more – can’t wait to implement more and capture additional business. Worth every penny. Thanks Alan!

    • Alan says:

      Thanks, Elizabeth for bringing out the Bridal Bliss team for the mastermind day, and for sharing your immediate results with me. Kudos for taking action.

  • Ben Mercedes says:

    Usually day long presentations will leave you fighting to stay awake, This is not the case with Alan. I implemented what I learned from his Mastermind group two days ago and I woke up to the news of a new booked client. Investing in Alan is investing in YOURSELF.

    • Alan says:

      Thanks Ben, for driving all the way down from Boston to NYC for the mastermind day. I appreciate that I’m like caffeine for you 😉

  • Amanda says:

    Alan visited our sales team recently and we can’t say enough positive things. We have been in business for over 60 years but Alan had our team looking at things with fresh eyes. We have been using the techniques we discussed and they work! With literally no effort just following the protocol we booked a huge conference the first week after the training. Even the little side conversations that were not part of the training provided a ha moments for us. Honestly it’s like Alan visited and gave each member of our team a brand new shiny tool box and taught them how to use every wrench in it! We are looking forward to working with Alan again in the near future, it’s worth every penny.

    • Alan says:

      Thanks, Amanda, I always love to hear how teams like your get immediate ROI from spending time together with me. Thanks for sharing.

  • I am new to the photo booth business and as a business owner. I had attended one of Alan’s seminars at the PBX in Las Vegas. The amount of material covered and the quality of teaching definitely exceeded my expectations. It was the perfect seminar for what I needed And to get the foundation of learning how to email potential customers. I can honestly say, out of all the numerous seminars that I had attended in those few short days, his seminar, I learned the most from! I would highly recommend to anyone looking to get an exceptional learning experience and look forward to future seminars that I may go to.

    • Alan says:

      Thanks, Kalina, it’s always great to hear from new businesses, like yours, and to see you coming to conferences and looking for ideas on how to succeed. I’m glad to be a small part of this for you.

  • Alan Berg is Second to none. I had the pleasure of consulting with him and look forward to the results that will come. There are few people I enjoy talking with as much as him. I would easily pay twice what I did to consult with him. I look forward to many more consultations.

    • Alan says:

      Thanks, Cole. It’s refreshing to work with someone your age, who is so progressive and willing to invest in your success.

  • LeAnn Batty says:

    Alan Berg’s presentation was informative and well presented. In the past few weeks, I have already experienced positive results from utilizing some of the techniques Alan suggested.

  • Nicole says:

    Alan is a DYNAMO. His thoughts and suggestions on websites, marketing, sales and pricing will inspire and push you to rethink EVERYTHING you’ve been doing and make it better.

    • Alan says:

      Thanks, Nicole. We all need to get a little outside our comfort zones. So glad you came to the mastermind day.

  • Kim Moody says:

    Great job as usual Alan! We hope to see you in Richmond again soon. Thanks for taking the time to connect with us and help grow our businesses.

  • sarah says:

    Alan is able to phrase (or rephrase) what I want to say to the client in a way that is way more articulate than what I say.

  • Katie Hoer says:

    Alan is a powerhouse of profitable ideas. His insights are concise and intuitive! We will be making some big changes in the way we develop leads. We plan to “shut up- and sell more!”

  • After being selected out of a stack of card to have Allen look at my site. I loved his honesty and I wanted to crawl up in a ball and cry in a corner, but WOW!!! It’s exactly the kick in the butt I needed and went right home and started working on it. Alan’s cheeky smile when teaching us how to sell it the BEST, “ding”. Thank you, Thank you, Thank you!!!

    • Alan says:

      Thanks, Paige, you were a very good sport with what I had to say about your site. Your photography is beautiful and we just need to show your customers that the person behind the camera is just as special for them.

  • Casey says:

    I saw Alan Berg speak at a 1 day Richmond Weddings event here in Richmond, Virginia and it was fantastic. He is very well spoken, his points make sense and really helped me think about hurdles that I see in my job day to day and how to tackle those. He spoke on ‘The Price is Right’ and how to navigate sales type questions between myself as a vendor and the client. I am going to start to implement some of his suggestions immediately to see the result as the market is ever changing and to meet the needs of clients is always evolving. Great way to spend the afternoon!

  • Rob Wilhoite says:

    Today was a eye opener for my bbq catering business. Today I learned I could do
    a better job of listening to my clients, simplifing my pricing model and growing my sales. Thanks Alan for your time and insights. Best money I have invested in my company.

    • Alan says:

      Thanks, Rob. It was great meeting you and I look forward to tasting some of your “Pig Candy” the next time I’m in Richmond.

  • WOW WOW WOW! Spent the day in a Mastermind Session with Alan in Richmond, VA. He provided us with so many practical tips for our businesses. His content was extremely relevant and now my “to-do” list is very long! Can’t wait to try some of his strategies for improving our web content and closing sales. His message was clear and simple. Even though we all had different types of wedding businesses , it applied to all of us. I would definitely love to hear him speak again!

    • Alan says:

      Thanks, Kim. It was great having you there and I want to hear how getting through you to-do list is leading to your success.

  • 3 Words: Knowledgeable, Generous, Entertaining. No wait, 4 words: Experienced. Ok, so, 5: Valuable. Thanks, Alan. You’re an incredible resource. Wait, that makes 6 words!

  • Rob Meagher says:

    If you are looking for the most effective way to improve your sales process, text or email Alan right now! The two-hour consultation that my team had with him was more than just a shot of adrenaline, it added true clarity to the things we are doing well and the things that we needed to change immediately. We put Alan’s suggestions to work right after the call and saw instant success!

    Thanks, Alan! We’re looking forward to your next book and hope to have you out to Denver for a Mastermind class in the near future.

    • Alan says:

      Thanks, Rob, I love Jan was able to use these ideas, the same day, and already made a sale. You’re making back your investment already!

  • Joe R. says:

    Alan is a master of our domain. He is great with the psychology of our prospective clients. His insight and guidance just gave us a laundry list of things to help increase our brand awareness and closing ratios. With me being in this industry for over 30 years it has been rare to come across a gem such as yourself. Thank you for all you do, Alan!

    • Alan says:

      Thanks, Joe, for coming out with Joe C. It’s great to see that even with your experience you’re looking for new ideas.

  • Carla C. says:

    If you’re looking to really invest in your future, Alan’s advice is priceless! I’m so glad I attended one of his recent mastermind sessions as I’ve been able to utilize his helpful tips and ideas for growth – immediately! I’m certain my business will blossom as I intend to use Alan’s tools and advice in the months and years to come.

    • Alan says:

      Thanks, Carla, it was great of you and Julie for coming out for the mastermind day. I look forward to hearing stories of your blossoming business!

  • Alan, it’s only been 3 weeks since our phone consultation, and implementing your suggestions has made such a huge difference in our business. Since our consultation, we have booked 8 consultations and 2 weddings. I am very excited with the direction of where our business is going. What is more amazing is that potential leads actually really appreciate our conversational method of emailing them. I initially thought this approach would bother potential clients, but the reality is actually the opposite! Thanks again! I am so grateful I booked a call with you.

    • Alan says:

      That’s great, Nadine, I really appreciate you coming back to let me know. I often only get the ‘before’ view, so it’s nice to see the ‘after’, and that’s it a better view!

  • Cristina. Albulescu says:

    Phenomenal work!! Alan’s knowledge in the wedding industry is well above and beyond! He is THE BEST! After my 2 hour consultation with him I knew exactly that I made the right choice and that my website will definitely stand out and convert my sales to a much higher standard! His recommendations were extremely helpful! He really took his time to review every single detail of my website and covered everything from A to Z. Completely outstanding! service!,I couldn’t be happier that I got to work with him! Don’t spend your time looking for other professionals! Alan is your guy!,

    • Alan says:

      Thanks, Cristina! It was great of Jake to refer you to me, and I can’t wait to see what Brian comes up with for your website.

  • Kenny Lewis says:

    Alan Berg simply has all the answers! When he speaks, I listen. I’ve consulted with Alan multiple times and will not hesitate to hire him again. I go to a lot of seminars and the deciding factor for me on which ones I choose spend my money on is whether or not he’s one of the speakers. He’s always personable and accessible and will always make you feel like an old friend when you drop by his booth at a seminar. His answers are quick and concise because he simply KNOWS! Thank you for transforming my business, Alan!

  • Nadine Araji says:

    Had a two hour phone consultation with Alan and really got a lot out of it. Although I made a list of areas I wanted to discuss, Alan came up with additional things for me to explore and think about. He is very helpful and resourceful, and pointed me to other contacts and websites that can help me get additional information. What I like the most about his approach is that you can tell he enjoys what he does and cares about the client, and is not just doing this for the money. Brilliant that he provides a recording of the meeting so I can go back and take notes. Can’t wait to schedule our next meeting!

    • Alan says:

      Thanks, Nadine, it was great finding out more about your unique approach to your business. Yes, I love the recording feature, as well, so you don’t have to write down everything that we discussed. It comes in handy.

  • Rob says:

    Alan reviewed my website and did the job most will not. He kindly and caringly ripped it apart. Most will not admit to you that your website needs this or that fix and I was too blind to see it, having built the site with my own “brilliance.” But unless you are already a website god you need someone like Alan to tell you how to make your website a machine that will bring people knocking and get excited. Thank you, Alan, for sharing your wisdom and helping me see how to make my website so much better!

    • Alan says:

      Thanks, Rob, for being so open to changes. So many photographers fight me on the marketing pieces, but you’re ahead of the curve on that. Thanks.

  • Website review with Alan Berg is a must!!!! for 2 hours the knowledge I gained, the understanding of a website and the value it can bring to my business was amazing. So glad I invested my time and money into this. Thank you Alan if mean the world to me….

  • Jackie says:

    Alan’s session was not only inspiring, but informational. I learned a lot of fantastic tools to help me sell and close the deal as well as be better at my job. Overall Alan was amazing and I’d love to see him speak again.

    • Alan says:

      Thanks Jackie, it was great meeting you and the EE team, I look forward to hearing great sales success stories from you all.

  • Korrine says:

    Alan is a wealth of very applicable knowledge. We asked him in for an onsite training session with our full team. This included everyone from sales, to operations, to management. He did a great job at building content that everyone could find some value in. He does a great job at keeping the conversation engaging. We all left with something to implement immediately. Thank you Alan!

    • Alan says:

      Thanks, Korrine, it was great seeing you again. I loved that we had everyone from the warehouse and drivers, through sales and management. That makes it so much more relevant and shows everyone how important they are. I hope the parts I did in Spanish added a little extra relevance to those on your team.

  • Alan! Thank you so much for putting on such a professional, engaging, informative, and fun training for us. We are still talking about it here! I have the orange cone sitting right next to my computer and you better believe that I (? send) every time now! I’ve gone thru a lot of sales training in my career but this by far was one of the best. I hope to see you soon at a conference or back here for additional training in the future!

    • Alan says:

      Thanks, Farrah, it was great to have you and the EE team out on a frigid Saturday. I appreciate your kind comments about the training, and I look forward to hearing great things from you, and the team.

  • I have seen Alan speak at Wedding MBA since 2013. Every single time I am in his audience, I walk away with something wonderful and new. His advice can be used immediately. I contacted Alan after this past Vegas conference to present before 40 sales members of the Bonura Hospitality Group. For 7 hours, Alan did not stop motivating and coaching. My team found him inspiring, captivating, and unlike any speaker we have had present. He trained us with our own leads received in real time. In the 7 hours, my sales managers sent out two agreements and booked 4 tours. WE WERE ALL WAS AMAZED! Even members of our team who have been in the wedding sales industry for over 40 years learned new techniques and were excited to put them into practice. Thank you Alan! Can’t wait to have you with us again.

    • Alan says:

      Thanks, Margaret. The look on your face, when you got a reply in 9 minutes, was priceless! I’m so glad that you, and your team, are seeing such immediate results.

  • It has barely been a week since the Mastermind Day I attended with Alan Berg, and we’ve already overhauled several facets of our sales materials and process, including a redesign of our website! Our process and identity feels so much more authentic to our brand, and the response from our existing and prospective clients has been overwhelmingly positive. Thank you for all the insight, and you can certainly be assured that we’ll be coming back for more inspiration soon!

    • Alan says:

      Thanks, Jennifer, for driving all the way down from Bar Harbor for the mastermind day. I look forward to seeing you the next time I come up to Maine.

  • Alan spent a day with our sales team last March. Talk about ROI! Within one month we had a 100% return on our investment and 8 months later, that return has catapulted to 500%! Our team has gotten much better at answering objections, providing appropriate and effective responses to leads, and, most important, closing. We were so happy with the results we scheduled a second visit this month and are looking forward to another round of improvements. Best sales training investment we have ever made.

  • I took a Mastermind class with Alan after hearing him speak at WeddingWire two years in a row. Let me tell you, this was the most useful class of my career. I gained so many tools that I implemented right away. I immediately saw results in how our clients responded to us.

    Please invest in yourself and sign up for a class, one-on-one or whatever it is you are considering. It was the best decision I made.

    Thanks Alan!

    • Alan says:

      Thanks, Divinity, for taking the time to share your experience. It was great having you at the DC mastermind, and I’m so glad you saw immediate results! I love when that happens.

  • Another incredible day spent with Alan Berg! He’s the best! I’ve seen Alan a few times and every time I walk away with fresh new ideas how to improve our marketing and communications to best serve our future clients. Thank you for a day great of inspiration!

    • Alan says:

      Thanks, Johnna, it was great having you at the Mastermind Day in Maine. I appreciate you coming out every time I’m up there.

  • Alan is THE expert. We discovered him on a Wedding Wire webinar (which was outstanding) and hired him for consulting on our web site. We’re so glad we spoke with him while we were still near the start of our site redesign. If even one of his many ideas for our site results in a sale, then his consulting fee will have more than paid for itself. We look forward to continuing with him.

  • Mike Garrasi says:

    ALAN BERG is THE MAN!! The amount of information he shares with you is just INSANE! His insight into what is in right now and what is going to be trending in the future is just incredible. Worth every penny!! I would have paid 10X what I have paid to see Alan. I have seen him 3 times now at his seminars and will never miss one! Thanks Alan! See you soon my friend!

    • Alan says:

      Thanks, Mike, it’s always great to see you, especially up in your area. Your commitment to professionalism, and your success, through training and education, is admirable.

  • Mike Reilly says:

    Just completed a wedding master mind session with Alan and once again I am simply blown away!!! He is second to none in the wedding industry and his knowledge is priceless. This is my third time training with Alan and it gets better each time. Book him today!! It will be one of the best investments you will ever make in your business!!

  • Amy Hammond says:

    Alan, I cannot thank you enough for the time, insight, and advice you provided during my consultation yesterday! There is nowhere and no one else in the wedding industry that a business owner can receive this type of personalized business counsel in such a short period of time. I have 8 pages of notes and probably only caught half of the information you shared. Thank you so much for recording our consultation; I will be listening again.
    I am working on your suggested changes and will be closely watching the results. I look forward to scheduling another call in the future to review what’s working and to see where else I can improve my business.

  • Our website review session with Alan was everything we expected and much more… I knew he was going to pick apart certain of his “pet peeves” with our layout and content… But we were amazed how one central theme can expand into a detailed (and very useful) two-hour evaluation!

    I have so many ideas and concepts I want to implement on my site now, thanks to Alan’s personalized attention. My wife and I own our own business and agree that a follow-up session (and regular annual checkups) are essential to the growth of our business. Thanks so much Alan; we will be talking again soon!

  • Sarah Martin says:

    You seriously need to Shut Up and Listen to Alan Berg!!! Read his books or go to see him speak. Being a down to earth person to talk to he is a wonderful speaker. I have learned to so much from him. My business is growing and all I did was LISTEN.

    • Alan says:

      Thanks, Sarah, it was great spending the day with you and the Shutterbooth team. I’m so glad you’re seeing such immediate success.

  • Kelly Andres says:

    Alan was a wonderful speaker!! I had a meeting with the owners and they were very excited to start some of the ideas we talked about at the mastermind. Can’t wait to see this business get a step above the rest!!

  • Kurt Nielsen says:

    Alan is a awesome speaker! His information on the industry is 2nd to none. We started changing things as soon as we left the meeting, sales tools, price list and even our website is being redone. If you ever get the chance to see him, WELL WORTH IT!

  • Brad Stover says:

    Alan did a wonderful job of showing us ways to improve our connections with potential clients. I began using several of the ideas the very next day and received and inquiry, scheduled a meeting and booked by the end of the week. Great workshop and will ultimately make my company lots of money this year. Thanks Alan.

    • Alan says:

      Thanks, Brad. It’s great to hear that you started using some new ideas, right away, and you’re seeing the results, just as fast!

  • Worth every penny! In a small group we were able to get very specific and address each persons strengths and weaknesses.

    • Alan says:

      Thanks, Michelle, for coming to the mastermind day. That’s what I love about the masterminds, too, getting to everyone’s issues in a small group format.

  • Jill Gordon says:

    Alan and I had a two-hour phone consultation a couple of weeks ago that left me feeling motivated and inspired to make some elemental changes in my marketing and sales approach. Before our meeting, I’d read “Shut Up and Sell More,” which was a fantastic source of useful, action-oriented information. After reviewing our notes from the phone consultation, though, I realized how many pointed, specific ideas Alan came up with for my business. We reviewed parts of my company’s website, sales material, “package” offerings and pricing, how to strengthen our brand recognition and some basic sales tips. After twenty-two years in business, it was time for a little “brush up” in some of these areas. Alan’s expertise and knowledge are solid, and I found him to be extremely generous and a whole lot of fun, to boot. Thank you Alan!

    • Alan says:

      Thanks, Jill. I love working with veterans like you, who have an open mind to taking the necessary steps to stay relevant. As one of my recent articles says… you can teach an old dog new tricks (and it takes one, to know one!).

  • reese rowe says:

    Alan was an energetic and entertaining speaker. His suggestions for my sales team will help us get out of our own way. I can’t wait to put them into practice!

    • Alan says:

      Thanks, Reese. It was great spending the day with you and the Herban Feast team at The Foundry. I’m looking forward to hearing about your successes with “getting out of your own way”!

  • Adam Dove says:

    We used Alan for a 2 hour consultation, and it was invaluable. He gave us not only the 2 hours, but an extra 15 minute call prior to this when we had another issue come up (without a charge).

    We went into deep detail on our website, and covered 4-5 other topics on reviews & sales.

    It was great to get an outside perspective on our business, and was a tremendous investment for us.

    • Alan says:

      Thanks, Adam, to you Alicia and Kelly for a great call. I’m looking forward to seeing how these changes affect your response.

  • Kay Rountree says:

    Great conversation with Alan to go over the many details of marketing and web design for my business, all of which have created a long list of tasks ahead. Really excited to see how these changes impact the next year! Many thanks! So pleased to have had this discussion. Now to my list …

  • dave becherer says:

    It was great speaking with Alan. He gave me a whole lot of very practical advise and very clear direction. After I got off the phone I had a list of action items that are within reach and will definitely make a difference. Looking forward to seeing the results of implementing his great advise.

  • Tommy Waters says:

    The explosion of inspiration that happened after attending Alan’s Mastermind Class was so overwhelming that I was energized to immediately overhaul our entire business’s website and immediately start using his techniques for following up to our client leads. It’s literally been ONE day and I have already heard back from 3 new leads ready to start the conversation with me about their wedding day that will hopefully lead to three new bookings. If you have the opportunity to renew your passion and have a good time doing it, DO NO WAIT!!!!! You will no regret the decision!

    • Alan says:

      Thanks, Tommy, to you and Jon for attending the mastermind. We’ve been trying to get together like this for a while, I’m glad it finally worked out. Looking forward to seeing you in December.

  • Liz Valles says:

    OMG- Alan is THE Wedding Guru!

    I spent two hours on the phone him. He had me outside my comfort zone, for sure! He helped me with my email responses to inquiries and reviewed my demo video and website.

    I started using his suggestions that afternoon and It hasn’t even been 24 hours but it’s working! I had two brides email me/call right after they got my new “Berg email response”.

    I’m so excited to start in on my laundry list of things he suggested!

    • Alan says:

      That’s great, Liz, so glad you’re seeing such immediate results. I know it’s outside your comfort zone, so I really appreciate you giving it a try.

  • Alan engaged a very diverse group at the McNamara Alumni Center. He effectively delivered critical points on guest service and taking it to the next level. Alan reminded the teams that “everyone is our customer” both internal and external. It was an outstanding morale booster, all attendees left feeling uplifted and with a positive attitude. Now we must implement what we learned and apply it into our day to day activities. I give Alan my highest endorsement as a champion trainer!

    • Alan says:

      Thanks, Barb. It was great working with you and your team from the McNamara Center, and your other properties. D’Amico has a great reputation and I look forward to hearing your success stories.

  • Danny Gee says:

    Alan’s approach and techniques have helped me become much better at sales. It’s amazing how some little adjustments can make a world of a difference!

    • Alan says:

      Thanks, Danny. It was great working with you and the team at Elite. I’m so happy to hear that you’re seeing success from the ideas we discussed.

  • Henry Chen says:

    WOW! I just spent 2 hours chatting with Alan Berg on how to improve my wedding photography website conversion rate (visitor to inquiries) and I walked away with a laundry list of actionable, tangible tips, advice, and strategies that I’ll be implementing in the coming days/weeks!

    I’ve heard of Alan for almost a decade now via The Knot, WeddingWire, and other platforms/companies, and have listened to/watched several of his webinars as well as speaking engagements (this past May at WeddingWire World in So Cal). Not only do I admire Alan’s knowledge of the wedding industry, but am inspired by the way he teaches and shares information.

    Thanks again Alan, I can’t wait to implement what he taught me and more than likely will be signing up for another coaching session in the future!

    • Alan says:

      Thanks, Henry, for your loyalty, and for our time together. I look forward to our next session to work on your sales process.

  • Cassandra Koszarek says:

    I learned so much from Alan’s Mastermind training! His ideas and methods are both intuitive and revolutionary. I captured new business immediately after implementing his strategies.

    • Alan says:

      Thanks, Cassandra. I’m so glad you are seeing immediate results from our mastermind day. I look forward to hearing more success stories.

  • Laurie Smith says:

    Truly , thank you for the learning experience! It’s not often we attend continuing education events outside our industry; so, it was different but great!

    I incorporated the “? Send” tip into my e-mail communication with Members and Staff to increase my response rate, and it’s working! I ended up saving a membership last week when I reached out to a Member who was due to cancel with us on 05/01/17. This is the exchange:

    I would like to keep my membership !

    Good Morning Lorraine-

    I hope this message finds you well!

    I’m just doing a brief courtesy check-in with you since you’re leaving as a result of being unsatisfied. Based on the Messages I reviewed on your account, it appears that we were able to work through your account challenges with Kolohe and your account. Is there anything that remains needing to be resolved? Are you still interested in cancelling your own membership?

    Thank You-

    • Alan says:

      Thanks, Laurie, for sharing this great story with me. I love how you immediately put this into use, and it worked!

  • Wyatt says:

    I schedule a consultation with Alan. He was very thorough in going throw my website and analyzing all my social media. He gave great direction on how to help drive business to my website and change my conversation during the booking process. I loved how he sent the whole conversation and the video of the call. I still go back to it and find more things to work on. I waited to post a review because I wanted to see if the changes have helped and sure enough it has. If you are starting out or even if you have been in the business and need a kick in the rear to re-energize Alan is money well spent!! Thanks Alan!!

    • Alan says:

      Thanks, Wyatt. I’m so glad you’re seeing positive results from our call, and I appreciate you posting your thoughts.

  • Damien Musto says:

    Working with Alan was an eye opening, inspiring experience. His knowledge and insight is exactly what we needed in order to begin building our new site. Having a fresh set of eyes as knowledgeable as Alan’s is highly beneficial. I look forward to working with him again and highly recommend his services.

    • Alan says:

      Thanks, Damien, it was great working with you. I started working with Sumar Entertainment back in my WeddingPages days, so it’s great to continue the relationship.

  • Alan’s knowledge of the wedding industry is amazing. He is the best out there! We brought him in for two training sessions at our club. Money well spent. The impact he left on our sales force has been nothing but incredible. Thank you Alan!

    • Alan says:

      Thanks, Steve. It was great coming back to work with your team again, and speaking for your annual dinner about the “WHY”. You set a great example of leadership and positive attitude.

  • Brian Brown says:

    We/I took the LEAP of faith in Alan last year directly after Wedding MBA and reading his latest book on the plane-ride home. The results??? 2016 our golf course did 11 weddings and revenue for the year (banquets only) was just over 122k. THUS far as of April 3rd 2017 we have 25 weddings booked and 169k in booked business with 8 months to go! I’m out of Saturdays for the year and it kills me but I’m actually having to turn away some business. Invest in yourself, your place of business and Alan Berg – you will NOT be disappointed if you just listen and apply what he has to offer!

  • Claudia says:

    Alan makes great use of every second of the teleconference. After the meeting I was left with so many new and fresh ideas for our website, I was excited and eager to put them into action. Without a doubt Alan’s website review is an excellent investment. Thank you Alan!!

    • Alan says:

      Thanks, Claudia, it was great working with you, for the second time. I look forward to the grand opening of your new venue.

  • Alan has been such an invaluable resource in providing insight in how to grow our business (a DJ company specializing in weddings and other private events). Alan is very experienced, insightful, and tech saavy as well. He takes great pride in helping his clients to develop their businesses, and he won’t hesitate to (politely) tell it like it is. I’m very happy with the investment we’ve made in hiring Alan as a consultant and I look forward to continuing to utilize him for his consulting. Cheers to Alan!

  • Alan came to one of our venue and ran a day-long sales training course for 15 of our account reps. All I can say is “Wow.” Best training class ever. I expect we will have an ROI within the next month. The ideas and techniques he presented were clearly laid out and easy to follow. He made the day fun, as well as educational. We learned a lot and had a blast at the same time.

    • Alan says:

      Thanks, Jeff, for inviting me to come and work with your team. They have a great energy, and I have no doubt you’ll be seeing that ROI quickly.

  • Kelsey says:

    I’m already seeing positive results from Alan’s seminars that I attended less than a week ago! He offered relevant and useful tips, tricks and techniques that I was anxious to bring back to my office and share with my coworkers. We’re trying to increase sales by 20% this year and I know that many of Alan’s suggestions and knowledge will help us reach that goal. Already looking forward to the next time I can attend one of his speaking engagements!

    • Alan says:

      Thanks, Kelsey, it was great meeting you at the ARA event. I love hearing that you’re looking to grow by 20%. I hope that the ideas you heard will get you there, and higher.

  • I participated in Alan’s Mastermind Class a few months ago and it was awesome! I had seen a few of Alan’s presentations and was looking for more one on one time to dive into the nitty-gritty business stuff. We fine tuned my emails to clients, Alan made suggestions for my website and gave me a few marketing ideas as well. Definitely worth the investment. No matter what topic is being discussed, Alan can always relate it to your business in a simple and easy way to understand. So when you go home, you can implement everything your learned. Thanks Alan! Looking forward to seeing your presentation in May. 🙂

    • Alan says:

      Thanks, Nicole, it’s always great to have you in the audience. I love your photography, and your dedication to improving your business. See you in May!

  • Ashley Backs says:

    HOLY COW! Alan rocked my world. After following the plan he set for my sales team and I we have had our best month in business and it’s only January! This time last year our sales were just at $4,500 and I thought we were doing alright. This year we have hit $14,500 in the same amount of time! The investment I made for him to come speak with my team was obviously worth more than what I paid! I will be calling him again this year just to refresh everyone, and smash our sales goals all over again! Thanks Alan for the great advise, insight, and knowledge you so willingly share.

    • Alan says:

      Wow, Ashley, that’s fantastic. Thanks for being so willing to try something new. I’m glad it’s working out so well for you, so quickly.

  • Robin Selden says:

    Hi Alan,
    SO great getting to know you in Boston! Your sessions(although sadly I missed the last one) were my favorite part of the entire conference! Inspiring, somewhat obvious but very clearly helpful since so much of what you said are things that we need to be doing and are great reminders!!
    We came back to the office yesterday afternoon and the first thing we did was to stop everyone in their tracks and tell them about my favorite tip, your ?Send
    The best part of this story is that at the same time, almost on cue, we received a random inquiry with no information that came through the knot. I immediately jumped on my sales coordinator, Melinda, and said we need to try this and try it now!
    Here is Melinda’s response after getting an almost immediate reply: “HOLY SHIT A RESPONSE AND ALMOST IMMEDIATELY!!!! THANK YOU ALAN BERG =)”
    I needed to share this with you as I’m sure this won’t be the last a-ha moment we have! Thank you for your enthusiasm and infectious energy, your incredible insight and really fun and engaging delivery…I never wanted the class to end!
    Hoping that our paths cross again soon and look forward to a great 2017!

  • Alan is great! I have seen him speak many times. During my website review he showed me the changes I should make and explained to me why they would benefit me. I just love how he explains things so I can understand! I made some of the changes immediately and I am still making those changes now as I had a list….but one thing we talked about was my Full Planning Package….two day after I had a bride call that wanted a custom all inclusive package. With the knowledge from Alan I raised my price $1,500. and she hired me! I would recommend Alan to everyone. He is worth every penny and more.
    Thank you Alan for all your help!

  • After seeing/hearing Alan speak on multiple occasions at WeddingMBA and WeddingWire Education seminars, in the past few years I had been meaning to do a Website Review session. Finally, on my company’s third webiste, I told myself that I will not officially launch my new site until I have Alan fully dissect it. I did it yesterday and the biggest regret I have is not having done this for the first two iterations of my website. He’s professional, knowledgeable, personable and super accessible. The best part is not just that I am 100% confident his insight will help me get a much bigger ROI of his fee, but he went beyond the website insight and was sharing advice that will help my business in other way. Even though he has done this hundreds of times, you can tell he genuinely cares about the success of your business which is why I’m finalizing things to bring him to Washington DC to host a PopUp Workshop so my fellow Vendor friends can benefit from his breadth of knowledge. Thank you Alan! Looking forward to hosting you soon 🙂

  • Johnny Budz says:

    I had Alan come to our office for the day and it was awesome. My entire team benefited greatly from his knowledge and expertise in sales training. We have already seen improved results from changes we’ve made after meeting with Alan. His knowledge in the wedding business is 2nd to none! You will not be disappointed! Thanks Alan!

    • Alan says:

      Thanks, Johnny. It was great coming in to work with you, and your team. You have a great energy, and the day went by, fast.

  • Karen Harvey says:

    I attended a 1 day workshop presented by Alan at a catering industry conference. I found Alan to be a dynamic speaker and the content of his presentation was very specific and relevant to our industry. I was able to implement some of his very specific techniques right away when I returned to work after the conference. I think these techniques will make an impact on the number of events I book immediately. The most important tip I got from Alan’s presentation was to continue to look at the client experience at our venue from their point of view from the minute they walk into their initial meeting.

    • Alan says:

      Thanks, Karen, it’s great to hear that you have tips you can use, right away. I look forward to coming up to work with you and your team.

  • Jeffrey Miller says:

    Alan Berg is a catering sales consultant par excellence! None better.

  • Larry Frank says:

    I was very fortunate to hear Alan this past week at our LCA training. All I can say is A+ and ? Send.

    • Alan says:

      Thanks, Larry. it was great having you and your team at the Leading Caterers of America event in Boston. I look forward to hearing how the ideas are being implemented by you and your team.

  • Anna says:

    Since doing a Sales training with Alan Berg our sales have consistently increased per sales person and overall. We were pleased with the outcome of and would highly recommend Alan Berg for sales training.

    • Alan says:

      Thanks, Anna. It was great working with you and your team at your beautiful venue. I’m so glad you’re reaping the rewards so quickly, of our time together.

  • My two hour consultation session with Alan was fantastic, well worth the money and time spent. He jammed the two hours with multiple ideas on ways to improve my website, create marketing campaigns, and specifically target my audience with the kind of messages that will get customers wanting to know more. Highly productive time. The call ended with my having taken over three pages of notes of “to do’s” and Alan records the session which will allow me to go back and catch the nuggets I may have missed.

    • Alan says:

      Thanks, Paul. You have a great product, and some of the most fantastic, emotional reviews I’ve seen. I’m looking forward to seeing the updates to your site and marketing.

  • Well, Where do I Start? If anyone in the Wedding industry knows as much as Alan they have not been found yet! The day I spent with Alan was truly amazing. Being in the Wedding Business for over 35 years and always having positive growth every year. I thought i knew it all. “I will tell you I did not” Alan made me realize a lot of great things I wasn’t doing or doing right! from answering inquiries to changing photos on you Advertising badges to create more impact and more visits to your website. He know all the right elements to make your business a success! His art of teaching you Selling are the right tools everyone in the Wedding industry must have! Your Money will well spent doing a seminar with Alan. He’s truly a Master at his craft.

    Dean

    • Alan says:

      Wow, thanks Dean. Coming from someone with your experience in the industry, that’s high-praise. I look forward to hearing how you’re using these new ideas in engagement season.

  • Rob Alberti says:

    Alan is DA BOMB! I’ve seen him speak multiple times across multiple states. I’ve hired him twice now to review my site. Every time things just keep getting better. He always has some gem in his review that makes the light bulb come on. I’ve been working hard at implementing the changes he suggested. Can’t wait to see the impact on our business.

    • Alan says:

      Thanks, Rob. It’s always great working with you because you’re so proactive about your approach, and it shows in your success.

  • Having Alan coach our team was exactly the boost we needed going into the new year. He addressed ways to improve our active listening skills, connecting with others, and steps for better follow up. Within one week, we are already seeing improved results! People do business with people they know, like, and trust. We aim to be those people for our clients as Alan was for us!

    • Alan says:

      Thanks, Maggie, it was great meeting you, and coming out to work with the Little White Dress team in Denver. I’m so happy that you’re seeing results so quickly. I look forward to hearing more of your success stories.

  • If you are looking to boost your marketing and/or sales approach, I will recommend you that you attend a Mastermind day with Alan. I’ve been consulting with Alan for a few years now, however I feel that the Mastermind Day was a whole different approach to the learning experience. Ever since I attended the Mastermind day I made a few adjustments suggested by Alan and once again he proved his value.

    • Alan says:

      Thanks Raul, it was great having you guys at the Mastermind Day. Your proactive attitude is what’s lead to your continued success. And thanks for posting that photo of you reading my sales book on the beach in Puerto Rico!

  • Ashley says:

    I just finished my first Mastermind session with Alan and could not be happier. He has a true gift for knowing how to relate to every aspect of the wedding industry. As a hair and makeup artist it is difficult to find education worth spending money on. Alan is worth every penny! Every time I have listened to him speak on stage he has rejuvenated my desire to push myself and my team to the top of the wedding industry. I always walk away feeling invigorated with a new passion for my bussiness and the tools to actually make it happen. The Mastermind session was another perfect example of Alans ability to give me insight into the wedding industry as well as practical tools and applications to turn my ideas into cash. Thank you for the great day Alan.

    • Alan says:

      Thanks, Ashley, it was great to have you and Lauren at the Mastermind. Thanks for hosting it, and I look forward to hearing your great stories of success!

  • Nils says:

    Alan is amazing at what he does. Our company had the opportunity to see him speak at a large event in Philadelphia, and the clinic was such an eye opener that we had to have him for a private mastermind session with the sales teams of three other companies that we work with in the City. We had the opportunity to discuss more specific issues in detail as well as talk about some of the personal challenges that each of our companies face. He not only brought some brilliant new ideas to the table for us to use, but also helped us figure out some of the most obvious solutions to the issues that we face but could never find an answer for. Our entire team came out of the Mastermind Session fired up and ready to put all of our new tools to use! Alan is a great mentor, speaker, adviser, and trainer with a wealth of knowledge. If you are looking to grow your business in any and all ways, Alan is the guy to speak with.

    • Alan says:

      Thanks, Nils, I’m glad you’re fired up. I look forward to our website session next week, and I also enjoyed accompanying you on piano at the NACE event in Philly.

  • I wouldn’t call Alan a motivational speaker, although I was incredibly motivated after spending the day with him. Prior to doing the Mastermind workshop with Alan, I was struggling to communicate in the most effective way with our clients, ranging from leads to current clients. I found it hard to know exactly what to look for when speaking with them and how to give them exactly what they wanted. Through the training, I am now able to identify what the client is looking for through small conversations and effective communication. I’ve learned the appropriate way to to respond to leads, questions, and objections. They day after the workshop, I was able to speak to two leads and book appointments for more information! I was also able to upsell a client on a better product based on the skills I learned the day before. Many motivational speakers are able to excite you, but don’t give you any concrete steps to take action with. Alan gives you both excitement and solutions that can be applied the same day to see results. I you would like to have more people respond to you, get a better response rate from leads, sell bigger packages, and be much more confident with clients, I would hire Alan Berg for the mastermind class. He will help take your company to the next level.

    • Alan says:

      Thanks, Olivia. I’m so glad you’re seeing such quick results, with some minor tweaks. Those are often the ones that have the greatest impact.

  • ABSOLUTELY MIND BLOWING Mastermind Day!!!
    Thank you Alan and others in the room for sharing. Although it’s almost a month since the day, i am still going through notes and implementing the ideas shared and discussed across all 4 of my businesses with awesome results!

    • Alan says:

      Thanks, Steven. It was great having you and the other 9 DJs there for the UK DJ Mastermind. Sharing ideas in that small-group setting allows for a lot of collaboration. Thanks for being a part of it.

  • Alan was a speaker at a weddings online event and I was so impressed I bought all his books and got him to review my website today. His knowledge is fantastic but also the fact he makes it so simple to understand is great.
    I would highly recommend Alan to anyone looking to improve their business.

    • Alan says:

      Thanks, Dave. It was great working with you and Paul. I liked how Paul was making the changes during the call. Talk about instant ROI!

  • Euan Bass says:

    a great day with Alan, i implemented on suggestion about my website straight away, and within 10 minutes received a months worth of enquiries

    • Alan says:

      Thanks, Euan. It was great having you at the Mastermind Day in the UK. I’m so glad you’re seeing such immediate results.

  • Erin Osaki says:

    This Mastermind gave the opportunity to have an actual conversation with Alan and other professionals in a way I have not experienced before. My two best takeaway items were to ask ‘What’s most important to you?’ and ‘Have you already decide to have your wedding with us?’ with each client. It’s so simple and effective. People really open up. I’ve closed two out of three site tours with that. As a Certified Speaking Professional, Alan is a master at conversation. The Mastermind created a casual environment with solid business building ideas that my business is immediately receiving benefit. Can’t wait till the next one!

  • Bob Charest says:

    Alan brings a fresh, useful insight into what works and why it does… or doesn’t. We all have much to work on, and are grateful to share and learn in an interactive way guided by Alan’s experience. Thank you!

  • Johnna says:

    Always a great experience listening to Alan speak. The recent mastermind day was great and the past website review and marketing/sales trainings as well. Keep doing what you’re doing. I need to be reminded how important it is to speak the language of our clients. The bar has been set high!

  • Tim Mitchell says:

    Alan is “THE GUY” for our industry. He brings a wealth of knowledge and perspective to those in the wedding and events business! I’ve experienced the “holy trinity” of what Alan offers by attending conference sessions, hiring him for a website review and recently attending a Mastermind Day. All of my experiences with Alan have been top notch and I have walked away with ideas and insights that have better positioned my catering business for success.

    • Alan says:

      Thanks, Tim. There aren’t that many people that can lay claim to having seen me speak, had private consulting and attended a mastermind day. And, if we add in how far you drove to come to the mastermind, you’re in a class by yourself. Thanks for your support and loyalty.

  • Joe Stone says:

    Great experience for a novice salesperson like myself. I’m going to shut up and sell more!

    • Alan says:

      Thanks, Joe, for coming to the Mastermind Day in Portland. You’re more of a salesperson that you give yourself credit for. I look forward to hearing about your sales success.

  • Alex says:

    Alan’s Mastermind is a must-attend event. Period. This is your chance to have total access to Alan’s sales training and decades of results-based research. I walked away with a whole new outlook on the psyche of couples and the mindset they use when making decisions. I’m rejuvenated and excited to start implementing what I learned.

  • Hi Alan…
    Your mastermind seminar yesterday was truly a great learning experience. The best aspect of your presentation is that you provide information, tips, feedback that can be immediately implemented; almost while you are sitting in the class. Your approach enables us to think differently about the wedding market, our brand, website and all related marketing pieces. I know we will begin to make these recommended changes and most importantly we will be able to track results.
    I attend many seminars that provide “concepts”. What’s different about an Alan Berg seminar is you get action steps on “how to” do it, “how to” read analytics, changes you can make in wording that will attract more business and bottom line how to better present your company so you book more business.
    Finally, the information in your seminars always seem to be cutting edge as over the years you continue to update your recommendations. Thanks again for great day of learning and meeting the other attendees, it is good to know that we all share some of the same challenges and how you provide tailored help to each one of us!

    • Alan says:

      Thanks, Dom, for hosting us and for participating. I always love coming down to Drexelbrook and seeing you and your team. You always take such good care of us.

  • I was lucky enough to attend Alan’s Mastermind session in Philadelphia and meet him for the first time. From the beginning of the session it was, fun, informative and the information you get is invaluable. He truly is a genius and we are already implementing some of his suggestions two days later. I would definitely attend another session, and I would also love to see him speak to a larger group. I left invigorate and excited to start fresh with his ideas…being in a new job it makes it even more exciting…

    I knew I should have bought his book while I was there…:-(

    • Alan says:

      Hi Anthony, thanks for making the ride up from the Eastern Shore. I’m looking forward to hearing and seeing the changes you’re implementing.

  • OMG It was life changing I really appreciate the info you gave me in fact i went home called my web designer and we are totally changing my site to a new and improved one The seminar gave me confirmation of what i needed to do and how important social networking is I need another class But YOU, ALAN are incredible looking foreword to another successful year because of the help you gave me or my I say the insight I am the most of changing my website I also reached out to a new designer that is supposed to be the BEST at designing site I have an appointment in the city on tues to meet with him MY present guy that does my site had no clue to what you talked about That importance of CALL TO ACTION and testimonies thank you so much i was truly inspired

    • Alan says:

      Thanks, Michele. It was great to see you, two weeks in a row, once in Vegas and then at the Mastermind in Philly. I’m looking forward to seeing your new website. Let me know how I can help.

  • As a sales manager for over 15 years, I can tell you that Alan really knows his stuff. All information that he gives is accurate, vital, and something that you can actually apply instead of “useless info” that some sales “gurus” will give you. Although some Alan’s sales training happened to mirror my own, I did learn A LOT from Alan. Specifically there are a few things that makes Alan better than anybody I’ve ever met or heard about in the sales world in regards to his training. One of these things is his website sales knowledge, I think Alan has probably forgotten more about storefront design, marketing and selling online than most people will ever learn. He tailors his class to specifically help each business’ website with crucial information. You can practically hear the sound of a cash register ringing up with each change he suggests for you. Another thing Alan does is listen to your specific issues you are facing, and give you individual feedback, something you will not get from most expensive sales training courses. Is mastermind worth the money? The better question is, how much longer will you continue to lose thousands and thousands of dollars without going!

    • Alan says:

      Thanks, Anthony, for your wonderful comments. With your experience that’s high praise. Kudos for joining us and knowing that we’re always on a journey for learning more, and being better.

  • Mike says:

    What can I say…..Alan is an absolute master. I was thrilled to enlist Alan’s services to work on my company website. He truly thinks outside the box and really sparks emotion and personalization when creating content on each page. When I go back through my “updated” web pages that Alan helped me construct, I read them as if I was a wedding couple thinking…I NEED to hire this company!! I will definitely continue to work with Alan to make my brand even stronger in the future. Thank you Alan!!!

  • I just had a one on one consultation with Alan and so glad I did! Alan walked me through how to analyze my visibility in google analytics, The Knot, and Wedding Wire in a way that was easy to understand and immediately useful to make actual change on our call! He records the sessions so you can easily go back and view all the information you went through but, more importantly, I was able to hang up the phone and have a consolidated to do list that was manageable and should garner some immediate results once executed. Alan has a ton of experience in a variety of different wedding industry fields so the real life examples he shares are insightful and very relevant. My only regret was wishing I had a longer session, thanks Alan!

    • Alan says:

      Thanks, John. You articulated so well what our session was about. I look forward to seeing the changes… and you can schedule another session any time you need!

  • While I have seen Alan speak at Wedding MBA and other local conference this time we tried out Alan’s Mastermind. It was fantastic! The small group setting was perfect to really talk about what we wanted and it was nice to collaborate with other professionals to gather best practices they use within their business. Because of the intimate group we were able to really focus on specific situations that related to us and tips and ideas for them. Once again Alan, thank you for sharing your knowledge. We certainly won’t miss the opportunity to hear you speak and we are so glad we participated in the mastermind.

    • Alan says:

      Thanks Debbie for you and Rick coming to the Mastermind Day, and also for sharing me with your success with changing the way you communicate via email and the success it’s bringing you.

  • Aris Lambrecht says:

    Thank you Alan for giving our team a new insight to our sales process. We are all excited for the positive changes to come! The day we spent with you flew by, so much so that the first time I looked at my phone to see the time I realized it was now rush hour!

    • Alan says:

      Thanks, Aris. It was great spending the day with you and the sales team at Robert Ryan Catering. I look forward to hearing how you’re using the ideas to succeed.

  • Whenever I attend an Alan Berg seminar, without fail, I always return to the office with new ideas that will improve my business processes.

    • Alan says:

      Thanks, Doug. It was great having you at the mastermind day. You have a progressive business and are always looking for new ideas!

  • Robert Ryan says:

    Alan,
    On behalf of our sales and marketing team I want to thank you for sharing your incredible wisdom about the wedding industry at our all day conference held at our facility. Since our original two hour conference call with you we have implemented all of your creative ideas on how to generate more leads for our company. After that original call both my son Mark and I knew the next step was to bring you in for a full day meeting about how to get more tours and bookings. Your insight on our industry is incredible, from the original e-mail that we receive to what information to send out to how to conduct the tour we are sure our bookings will increase. Our sales staff has already started to use many of the strategies that you have recommended. The next step will be to review our new website and then another two hour conference call in November with the sales team to review everything we have executed. I am sure this will turn out to be the least amount of money I have ever spent to bring in hundreds of thousands of dollars of new business in return. Talk about ROI ! Many thanks again and we welcome you as a member of our team. Many thanks again Alan, Bob

    • Alan says:

      Thanks, Bob, for inviting me to spend the day with you and your sales team. You have a great, supportive attitude and it shows in your team, and your success.

  • Wendy Hicks says:

    Alan Berg provided our business an informative two hours stocked full of tangible ideas to improve our website, wedding wire page, and how we respond with our inquires! An awesome 2 hours well spent!

    • Alan says:

      Thanks, Wendy. It was great speaking with you and Karen and finding out how I can help you, help more couples have beautiful Tybee Island weddings.

  • This Mastermind event was Great! Our group was able to discuss specific challenges & successes that effect all of us.
    I would do it again when the opportunity comes.

  • A Mastermind day with Alan is a great way to get a high quality tune up at a very affordable rate. It is a great educational opportunity while sharing the costs with other business- minded folks – creating great value for my company. I look forward to implementing these new and updated ideas to propel revenue results forward.

    There was no after lunch siesta – you kept everyone engaged! however, next time, I will order boxed lunches so that we don’t spend valuable time eating fried chicken!

    • Alan says:

      Thanks Kellie, for helping to arrange the Nashville mastermind and I look forward to working with you and Danielle on your business.

  • Estimado Alan, para mi fue un placer haberto conocido y fue un excelente aprendizaje, gracias por compartir tu saber!
    Deseo poder poner en práctica lo aprendido ya!!
    Tus charlas en español fueron muy entretenidas.

  • Back in April, I hired Alan to do a website review. The process was easy, and the results have been fantastic. I made the decision to scrap the old site and start from scratch based on his suggestions. The recording of the session was invaluable – it gave me the chance to really digest concepts, making it easier to communicate with the website designer that I subsequently hired, while also forwarding the recording to the designer to make sure we were on the same page.

    I wanted to give it a few months before submitting a review, as to be able to give a relevant review. Today, I recieved an email from the web designer with Google Analytics data, which showed great SEO results – but that’s not what is important. Alan’s advice re: converting website visits into bookings has resulted in a great boom in biz for me 🙂 I plan on booking future “check ups” with him, the Dr. cured an ailing business 🙂

    • Alan says:

      Wow, Robert, what a transformation, and so nice of you to share your feedback. It’s a great testimony that whatever your business, there’s always room to grow, and you certainly took the bold steps to do so… and are seeing the results. Kudos.

  • Patti says:

    Alan is amazing at just stripping down the approach and getting to the heart of the matter. Listen to what your client is saying instead of dispersing info at a rate that makes the head spin. Be you and keep it simple, because that’s who they’re buying!

    • Alan says:

      Thanks, Patti. It was great spending the day with you and your team. I look forward to hearing your stories of success.

  • Ann Petronio says:

    I struggled with the decision to book a spot at Alan’s recent Mastermind session because I was already attending his day-long seminar with the Rhode Island Wedding Group the day prior, and I didn’t know if it was worthwhile to take another day away from the office to learn “the same things”. SO glad I made the right decision. The small-group, collaborative Mastermind session was a fantastic way to expand on the tips/advice from the seminar, and apply them to my own specific situation. My web designer is going to hate me when I call her with all my new ideas!

  • Our venue had the pleasure of spending the day with Alan just 3 months ago in May. Our eyes became very open to areas in which we needed improvement, mostly on our website and also when communicating with our potential clients. By implementing very simple easy steps and tools, we have experienced a great number of bookings and less time between inquiry to booking conversion and our team would highly recommend him to anyone looking to grow and improve your business. We are already planning a group day with another vendor in our area-so Thankful to Alan Berg for sharing your experience with us! Looking forward to seeing you at the upcoming Wedding MBA 2016!!

    • Alan says:

      Thanks, Jenny, it was great spending time with you, Anthony and your team. I look forward to coming back for the Mastermind Day with Breezin’ and other proactive local wedding pros.

  • I saw Alan speak about wedding vendor website best practices at a conference. I implemented some of his recommendations and saw a higher conversion rate for contact form submissions. Recently, he gave me a website review. He found an issue on my site that was directing visitors to an inactive registration page. This was related to a recent multi-site wordpress implementation that went wrong. If he had not found this issue, it would have continued to have a major impact on our inquiries. In addition, Alan helped me to determine which pages should receive priority based on my Google Analytics data and he consulted me about how to grow into an agency-type business.

    If you are looking to improve and grow your business, then Alan is your man (and THA MAN)!

    • Alan says:

      Thanks, Omari. It was great working with you. You are so receptive to new ideas, and that’s why you’ll achieve even greater success.

  • We are grateful for our time with Alan and the new understanding we get to put into action.
    Alan is a supernova of ideas and experience.
    He guided us to solutions that had eluded us for years.
    We look forward to continue our work with Alan as we implement the products from our epic day with him.
    Get Alan, get results.
    Many thanks!

    • Alan says:

      Thanks, Kristie, for inviting me to spend the day with you and Niall, and the whole team at firefly. I love the expansion ideas, and how you’re going to handle pricing and packages. I’m looking forward to coming back and not only seeing your success, but also re-experiencing your fantastic food.

  • Mike Potts says:

    Thanks for putting together this event Alan! There’s a huge benefit to business owners who get together in small groups like this and share ideas, and with you at the wheel, I felt we had a wonderfully productive day. Signing up for this Mastermind forced me to get out of my daily routine, step back, and reevaluate the small things that will inevitably lead to much bigger successes long term. I definitely valued this opportunity.

    • Alan says:

      Thanks Mike, for bringing Mike S. to the mastermind. You have a unique service and I’m looking forward to hearing how you’re using the ideas you heard.

  • Thank you Alan, for spending the time with us today for our website review. Your expertise and advice was very informative
    and in the coming weeks will give us the tools to help improve our business .

    Thank you !

    • Alan says:

      Thanks, Lee, it was great working with you, Jeff and Andy. I look forward to seeing what Anna comes up with for your new site.

  • Over the years I have always enjoyed watching Alan inform, educate and speak. After attending his Mastermind Day, I truly believe Alan is THE marketing leader in the wedding industry! I highly recommend this experience with Alan.

    • Alan says:

      Thanks, Patrick. You were the lynchpin that brought the OKC mastermind together. Thanks for always supporting your local wedding community.

  • Chasen Shaw says:

    Attending Alan’s mastermind session was more than a refresher course, it was a soft but firm love slap for my business. Having time to talk specifics made for deeper learning and understanding. I believe consistent mastermind sessions will lead to drastic improvement in my business. Consistency is King! Looking forward to implementing what I learned through Alan and the colleagues that contributed in the mastermind. Thank you, Alan.

  • Listening to Alan isn’t just listening – it’s making me money. I think I need to buy him a drink for all the common-sense practical tips he’s given me! Thank you, Alan, again and again. And I’m looking forward to hearing you speak again very soon.

  • I’ve heard Alan at least 5 different times over the last 3 years, and I always learn something new. His enthusiasm and delivery are top notch. Believable and from the heart every time. How can you not share the passion with Alan?!?!? Keep it up Mr. Berg!

    • Alan says:

      Thanks, Scott. It’s my mission to always be working on new topics, and new approaches to topics. Thanks for confirming for me that you’re benefitting.

  • Not knowing what to expect in the Mastermind session, “what is said in Mastermind stay’s in Mastermind” allows for a non defensive conversation on topics regardless of you agreeing or not. Part of the sessions Q&A participation to discuss real issues being faced by the group allowed for open discussion from caterers, cakes, bridal gowns, photography, videography, venues, scheduling, IT tech consulting. It was the first time that I have participated in an open discussion with other professionals and we all realized we could agree to disagree without offending anyone. While learning and solving situations that we all experience. Being able to see things from another professional’s point of view is always eye opening.

    When you have the opportunity to hear Alan invest in your business and you will definitely see the increase.

  • D’Plazzo Wedding Planners loved being apart of the Mastermind session in OKC. We learned a lot, and feel more confident in answering brides emails about pricing. I would recommend the Mastermind workshop to anyone who wants to learn more about marketing. Thanks Alan for teaching us your wisdom!
    Debra Sanders and Dacia Heinrich

    • Alan says:

      Thanks, Debra, for you and Dacia participating in the mastermind in OKC. I look forward to hearing about how you’re using the ideas we discussed.

  • I was once told if you attend a conference/workshop and walk away with at least 1 tip to help you with future sales then it was work the time and money… I have now been to 3 of Alan’s workshops and each time I leave with several tips to help with future sales. This time I was lucky enough to have a 1 on 1 training with Alan, Eva (the owner of Centaur Arabian Farms) and myself, we have implemented several of his suggestions and have already began to have positive feedback. He suggested we shorten our “contact form” and within 1 day we had 4 submissions. Can’t wait to hear him speak again!

    • Alan says:

      Thanks, Holly. It was great to spend the day with you and Eva… and this time you didn’t have to drive hundreds of miles to see me, I came to you!

  • Dacia says:

    Having Alan come to Oklahoma and speak to up about marketing for the wedding industry was more than what we could even have hoped for. The mastermind day was so informative, and Alan’s knowledge and experience made every single minute invaluable. We are so thankful to have been apart and couldn’t recommend him any higher to anyone who is thinking of using his services.

    • Alan says:

      Thanks, Dacia. It was great having you and your mom be a part of this. I look forward to hearing great things from both of you.

  • Mastermind, was amazing!! I was able to learn from Alan, an expert in his field how to improve my information to show others how I am an expert in my field and gain more business.

    • Alan says:

      Thanks, Jennifer, for participating in the mastermind, and the ‘after-party’, where we delved even deeper for you. I look forward to hearing your stories of success.

  • Eva Sealey says:

    Our Pop Up Workshop was amazing. Small and intimate, it was possible for everyone to actively participate in questions and answers. Alan’s answers were quick and to the point and during the sessions, he kept everyone entertained with his quick wit and humor. I was approached by everyone who attended and thanked for bringing Alan Berg to Centaur Arabian Farms in Flint Texas.

  • Eva Sealey says:

    I have personally sat through 100’s of training and mentoring seminars and sessions, but never have my experiences been comparable to the wealth of knowledge gained in the 4 short hours spent with Alan. He is a cornucopia of “how to’s” and “what fors”. I harvested and stored more rewarding knowledge than I ever expected. My business has already been positively affected by the changes Alan encouraged me to make. All you have to do is put into action the methods he teaches. So thankful for the opportunity.

  • Alan has once again proven his invaluable services to me and our club. I have had the pleasure of seeing Alan at several conferences and meetings over the years and have always taken great ideas that have helped me personally increase my business. This time I hired Alan to evaluate our website and he not only showed us how to improve our traffic flow, he has shown us how to increase our capture rate immediately and this will have the positive outcome of increased sales and member satisfaction that will also result in increased facility traffic and usage. I will also add that it doesn’t just stop there. Alan Berg stands by what he teaches you by following up and answering questions that may come up after your session. If you are looking to stay competitive and ahead of the curve, I highly recommend Alan Berg’s services.

    • Alan says:

      Thanks, Richard, it was great working with you and your team. I’m looking forward to hearing more about how these changes are helping your conversion.

  • I wasn’t sure what to expect at the Mastermind session, but I knew I had to be there. What I realized about an hour in was that the class was actually more concentrated than a conference because it was MY information that was on the screen. I loved how there was no formal agenda, but instead the topics of discussion were led by the group. By the end of the day, I ended up with 19 pages of notes, and was completely recharged and ready to go! I knew EXACTLY what I needed to do to increase our companies sales, because Alan gave me (us) a clear step-by-step game plan.

  • Liz Daley says:

    I have been an attendee at many of Alan’s seminar presentations over the years and have always walked away from these seminars with tons of actionable information that helped my business. His depth of knowledge regarding marketing and sales is absolutely inspiring. Besides that, he’s an awesome person. He always makes sure he is up-to-date with how brides are searching and more importantly, how they are buying the services and products for their weddings.
    Finally, while Alan’s seminars are extremely informative, they pale in comparison to what happens when he works with clients one-on-one to solve their business problems.

  • Alan is always inspiring and never disappoints. Even after hearing him speak multiple times I always learn something new. His help with my website is invaluable.

  • Gerda says:

    We first met Alan at Wedding Wire World 2014. His tips from that seminar were so helpful, that we couldn’t wait to see him again this year! We set up a Website Review with him and had such a wonderful experience today! He is so knowledgeable in many different areas and really wants to help better your business. He told us key things that will dramatically change how our site runs and is viewed! Thanks so much Alan!!! You are a true professional, and we will be back after we use the tools you gave us today!

    • Alan says:

      Thanks, Gerda. It was great working with you and Barb. I know that your next site will be amazing, just like your photos.

  • Kaci Willwerth says:

    I have been listening to Alan’s webinars for last 5 years and recently had the honor to actually see him speak at Wedding Wire World in Washington, DC. The knowledge that Alan has, his gift to relay it, his passion to help and share it with the world is remarkable. I am very grateful for everything he has taught me. I have grown a tremendous amount in my career because of his guidance. Thank you so much, Alan! Cheers to your success!

    • Alan says:

      Thanks Kaci, I’m humbled by your wonderful comments. It helps to validate that when I do a webinar, and I can’t see my audience, that I’m having a positive impact on businesses like yours.

  • I am so happy that I chose Alan to review my website! Alan gave me honest feedback and told me exactly what I needed to do differently in order to get more brides and grooms to contact me. Alan provided solid examples of successful websites and helped me to understand how I can implement these examples into my own website. I feel like Alan’s advice and feedback was invaluable and I would definitely recommend him to other wedding vendors (or anyone who owns a business). I am beyond excited to begin implementing these critical changes to my site!

  • Dave Mancini says:

    I had my 2 hour phone call with Alan right before the new year. After only implementing half of the amazing tips Alan gave me in that phone call, I had the best January on record as far as trackable leads go. Not only was I getting considerably more leads contacting me, just re-wording my initial emails with his suggestions has resulted in more clients responding to me than ever before. Now my new website (where I used the other half of the suggestions he gave me) is about to launch, I can’t wait to see how much more my business is about to blow up! Thanks Alan!!!

    • Alan says:

      Wow, Adam, that’s fantastic. I love that you took action and are seeing such great results. Keep sharing your stories of success.

  • Alan Berg is the Marketing Guru for new and seasonal professionals. Alan can see what most business owners cannot. The subtle and not so subtle changes needed to create and polish a Brand. The key essentials needed on a website that most “webmasters” do not consider. Webmasters focus on graphic design. Alan Berg’s focus is on converting clicks to sales. Alan Berg is an indispensable tool for a growing business. I look forward to my next seminar with The Guru.

  • Zita says:

    I booked a two-hour consulting session with Alan, hoping for clarity on a key business decision I’ve struggled with for months. Not only did he help me untangle my options, he showed me how to organize them for maximum efficiency. Impossible to put a price tag on that kind of personal advice!

  • Darek NOvak says:

    I keep coming back here for new tips and stuff, recommended to attend to Allan workshop 100%.

  • Vivian says:

    I’ve listened to Alan for years through various webinars, but I’ve finally had the opportunity work with him one on one. He’s very detail oriented and specific, he maximizes time – you will learn something every minute.

    • Alan says:

      Thanks, Vivian. It was great working with you. I’d love to arrange that Pop-Up Wedding Workshop with you. Let’s get it on our calendars!

  • Carol Chaput says:

    I attended Alan’s conference on January 28 at the beautiful Sumner Mansion Inn in Hartland, VT. I will use the knowledge and insights I gained from him both in my business and in personal communications. The entire day was fast, furious, funny, fabulous. Thank you, Alan.

    • Alan says:

      Thanks, Carol. It was great of you to come all the way up from Connecticut for the event. I especially appreciate your alliterative assessment of the day!

  • Rob Ferre says:

    Alan, thank you for spending 3 amazing days with us here in Utah. Your mastermind workshop was a full day of sales knowledge that I can start applying right away. The way we answer our emails has changed because of the mastermind and we have seen more responses and more bookings already. Second your presentation on 5 Reasons You Should Fire Your Website at our local chapter of the National Speakers Association was just great. I would often look around the room and everyone was furiously engaged in note taking. Third your mastermind lunch with my fellow DJs was perfect. I know everyone at that lunch walked away with a great ideas to sell more weddings. Last of all, the thing that makes you, Alan Berg, a unique presenter, trainer and consultant is the relationships you cultivate with your clients. I never feel like like a client I feel like a friend. You take the time to get to know me and my needs. What sets you apart from other presenters and trainers like yourself you are genuine and have vested interest in our lives and success. Thank you for taking the time to be a part of my life and business.

    • Alan says:

      Thanks for arranging for me to come out to Salt Lake City for the first time. You’re a wonderful host, both for your clients and for me.

  • Becky K. says:

    Alan has helped us improve in many aspects of our business from website review to inter-office Sales & Procedural training. His recommendation are clear, easy to understand and didn’t require us to spend many hours re-writing procedures. His suggestions were immediately implemented and revealed immediate results! We have hired other professionals for advice but none have given the professional results, quick responses and genuine concern the way Alan does. I would highly recommend Alan’s services and products to anyone looking for improvement opportunities for your service industry business!
    He even makes a great “role playing” spouse! Thank you Alan!

    • Alan says:

      Thanks, Becky. It was great working with you and the team at Cross Creek Ranch. You have a beautiful venue and I’m looking to hear more about how many more couples will get to partake in its beauty this year.

  • Audrey Jones says:

    I don’t know where to start; Alan was invaluable in helping me to understand how I need to make some critical changes to my website in order to drive clients to contact me. He is so thorough with every aspect of discussng website reviews and overall website content. While there was so much I learned I could have listened to him much longer. I am looking forward to speaking with him again in order for him to provide more feedback once I am able to make the necessary changes/suggestions. I recommend every business work with Alan even if just for once because he is invaluable to assisting to making your business a success!

    • Alan says:

      Thanks, Audrey, it was great working with you. I look forward to seeing you at WeddingWire World and hearing your stories of success.

  • We saw Alan speak for the first time at Wedding Wire World. After his presentation I immediately went to his booth to find him. He asked how I was enjoying the conference I told him that what I enjoyed the most was his presentation & what I enjoyed least is that he didn’t speak longer. My partner Angelo felt the same way so we hired Alan to do our website review. After he provided us with his insightful knowledge how to improve our website we than hired Alan to come to our office for a private sales training. Alan has a true passion for what he does & we are very thankful we met him!

    Thanks Alan!!

    • Alan says:

      Thanks guys, it was great coming down to work with you, I love the direction of your new site and I look forward to hearing your stories of success.

  • Ronan Burke says:

    Alan was a great help when I came to him for advice, he is very easy to talk to. He simplifies things with examples in order to break it down better. I would highly recommend Alan for any business consultancy. Thanks

    • Alan says:

      Thanks, Ronan. You have a very unique product and I look forward to seeing you expand your brand with the new site, and new branding.

  • Lauren M. says:

    I was a part of Alan’s mastermind sales training one week ago in Pittsburgh, and it was the most effective sales training I’ve ever taken. I have been putting what I learned into action and have seen immediate results! He gives great tips for communicating with your client more efficiently. I HIGHLY recommend Alan to anyone looking to increase their sales productivity!

    • Alan says:

      Thanks, Lauren, it was great seeing you the very next night and hearing how you’re already benefitting from the mastermind day. I look forward to hearing more stories of your success.

  • Theresa Kaufman says:

    Every once in a while you have an experience that makes you think “Why don’t I do this more often?” This workshop was one of those experiences. When you run your own business, it becomes difficult to take the time to invest back into yourself and your business skills. I am glad I took the time to attend and participate because I found the information valuable and confidence-building.

    • Alan says:

      Thanks, Theresa. It’s always hard to take that step back and make the investment in time, and money, but I’m so glad you did. I look forward to hearing your success stories.

  • Nehal P. says:

    Mastermind day is a wholesome, organic, relevant way to maximize your business’ potential. Alan’s industry knowledge, experience, and down-to-earth demeanor makes him very approachable and extremely resourceful. We are already experiencing an immediate positive business transformation. One of the BEST investments in our business – Thank you, Alan!

    • Alan says:

      Thanks, Nehal, that’s very kind of you to say. I got a chuckle when you emailed me to ask “What would Alan Berg do?”

  • Alan was absolutely amazing. We set up a date for him to come and speak to my staff, my partners and myself. I learned so much from him, I didn’t want his visit to end. I definitely recommend you hire him to speak if you are like me and are always looking to better yourself and your business.

    • Alan says:

      Thanks, Mike, I love that you’re always looking for ways to take your already successful companies to the next level. Thanks for allowing me to be a part of that.

  • Bryan K. says:

    Alan was great! He really takes a practical and reasonable approach on how to conduct yourself and your business. His experience in our industry truly shows during his presentations. I highly recommend investing your time to consult with Alan. Thank you!

    • Alan says:

      Thanks, Bryan, it was great to have you at the group mastermind day. I look forward to hearing how you and your team are using the ideas you learned.

  • Alan, after yesterday’s private coaching, I think I owe you a breakfast, also 🙂 The thought processes you unlocked for my team and I got us pumped beyond our expectations. We immediately applied several techniques to our operation and, again, we’re seeing immediate results. I inquired what my staff liked most about your presentation. Unanimously, it’s a tie between your immense industry knowledge AND engaging/entertaining way of coaching. You simply make learning FUN, and are undoubtedly worth EVERY penny. Thank you!!!!!!

    From all of us at Aldo Ryan Entertainment

    • Alan says:

      Thanks, Aldo. It was great having you and your team for the Group Mastermind yesterday. I love hearing how you’re using the ideas and seeing results, right away. It’s not ideas that lead to success, it’s action… kudos and thanks for helping to arrange the mastermind day.

  • Alan Berg Is Simply The Best!!!! His presentation was flawless and extremely informative. Definitely an asset to anyone that is serious about their business and who is looking to grow their brand.

    • Alan says:

      Thanks, Massimo, it was great to have the mastermind group with you and the team at Partners in Sound, plus your affiliates. We crammed a lot of information into the one day, thanks for inviting me in.

  • For a while, I’ve been meaning to have a new website built but have been a little unsure of exactly how to change it and what needs to be changed. Well, all that indecision was resolved in a 2-hour period today through the sage that is Alan Berg. My head is still reeling from taking in so much salient and practical advice on the changes to make that will almost certainly reap the rewards I’m seeking. It might take me a couple of centuries to implement all the suggestions made, but it will be worth it!
    Beforehand I had been wondering if a website review with Alan was really a worthwhile investment? A few hours later the answer to that question is a resounding yes.

    • Alan says:

      Thanks, Tony, it was great meeting you at the UK Wedding Conference and I love seeing how progressive you are about your business. I’m looking forward to seeing your new site and hearing your success stories when I see you in the UK again next year.

  • Ali Burding says:

    Alan was wonderful to work with! He came to give my team a private sales training and was very engaging. I greatly enjoyed that the training was more of a conversation and was tailored to our specific needs. I would absolutely recommend hi m to anyone who is looking for personalized sales training. Looking forward to next year!

    • Alan says:

      Thanks, Ali, it was great working with you and your team, for a second time. You have a beautiful venue and I look forward to hearing how you’re all implementing the ideas we discussed.

  • Evan Liaskos says:

    Alan was extremely helpful with a great combination of “out of the box” ideas and “things I should have known but missed” ideas for improving my website. although I was already familiar with many of his insights from seeing him speak many times, having him focused on my specific project one on one is going to help me take my website to the next level. Alan himself will tell you that you can not proof your own website to make it the best possible (he can not even do it for himself). He now proved it to me as well.

    • Alan says:

      Thanks, Evan. The most successful businesses understand that you need an outside look sometimes to fine tune what you’ve already done. Thanks for letting me be that voice for you.

  • Jordan Brian says:

    I had another great consulting session with Alan AKA the JEDI master today. He truly understands the force of not being forceful with selling but describing the emotion that you want to provide with your products. There is so much amazing tips and tidbits of information that he shares it is hard to really capture it all just with one session. I feel that every year my business can use a little kickstart and refresh from Alan’s ideas and help. Always a pleasure honing my craft of selling what I love and Alan helps me do just that…

    • Alan says:

      Thanks, Jordan, it’s great to work with you because you’re so proactive on moving your success. I look forward to hearing about your success the next time we meet.

  • Carl Jr. says:

    Alan provided so much great advice on my web site. Things that you never considered until he points them out. Really great and I look forward to the increased traffic. Now I need to put all these ideas to good use! Thanks Alan!

    • Alan says:

      Thanks, Carl, it was great working with you. At least on the phone they don’t say we look alike! I look forward to hearing how you’ve put these ideas to work and your stories of success.

  • Nancy Vance says:

    I recently had the privilege to see Alan for a second time within a few months. And yes, he is that good that you will want to continue to glean from his knowledge and wisdom. The first time I learned how to look at myself from the customers prospective and think about what they may want to hear rather than what I want to say. This last time I learned how to refine my emails to start a “conversation” with my prospective client. Thanks again Alan for making me more successful by showing me how I can easily refine or change what I am doing!

    • Alan says:

      Thanks, Nancy, it was great to have you in the audience again and I’m happy to hear how you’re using these ideas. Keep sharing your stories of success.

  • I had the opportunity to see Alan in action! He was lively, engaging, entertaining, funny, professional, and very knowledgeable. He knows your business whatever it may be because he knows people, what they want, what they look for, what they want to hear, what questions they are going to ask, what they expect from you, and then arms you with the right way to respond and reach potential clients whether it is on your website, answering emails, or reading reviews. The best advice to me was to LISTEN. Ask a question and SHUT UP along with other great tips I implemented immediately! Thank you Alan and The Springs Events for hosting this amazing seminar. Alan Berg is a must see!

    • Alan says:

      Thanks, Nicole, I’m so glad to see you are using some of the ideas right away. I look forward to coming back and working with the great team at The Springs again. I love how you’re team and property lists are growing.

  • Mugu Radu says:

    Alan is amazing! I am listening to his webinars for years and never even thought we can approach him because he is too big to even consider spending time with us and teaching us his strategy or approach in this industry. On the contrary, he is a normal person, fun and friendly 🙂 Very knowledgeable, professional and it felt like he knew our business and the struggles we go through better than us. We got so much information that is going to bring our business to the next level. We’ll have to go to work and make the changes ASAP. Thank you so much Alan for everything!
    Mugu

    • Alan says:

      Thanks, Mugu, it was great working with you yesterday. My passion is helping talented people, like you, and helping you have better businesses. I look forward to working with you again and hearing more of your wonderful music (just not automatically playing on your website 😉

  • Jeremy Brech says:

    Alan was amazing to work with when it came to analyzing my website. I have seen Alan speak numerous times and have gained so much respect for his professionalism, innovation, and inspiring energy. When I had the opportunity to setup a one on one consultation to review things in my business that could be improved, I jumped right on it. Alan took the time to really care about my business and the results I wanted to create. After making small and large changes per our discussion it made extreme differences in my results. I was getting more leads, more click throughs, more phone calls, and it made me more confident sending my clients to my site. I can’t thank Alan enough for the results I have noticed and my investment was worth every penny. I would and will be doing business with Alan again. Thank you!

    • Alan says:

      Thanks, Jer. You’ve taken a pretty good website and made it even better. I’m glad to hear you’re getting such quick results… but that’s because you’re so proactive in making the changes.

  • We first met Alan in Austin for a two day marketing seminar. On the second day, we attended a website review along with about 5 other companies. We were amazed with how wrong our website was, especially since we have a marketing professional designing our website and handling our SEO and google analytics! The half day seminar was not enough for us. We invited Alan to our wedding venue in Houston for a full day of his advice and wisdom. We not only discussed our website, but also our sales approach. Since then, we have increased our inquiry to tour ratio. Alan is informative, innovative and passionate about online marketing. Investing in his onsite training was the best decision we could have made. Thank you Alan!

      Thanks, Melissa, I’m glad you’re seeing such quick results from our time together. You have a beautiful venue and now more couples will get to see and enjoy it.

  • Alan,
    Thank you so very much for your extremely thorough review and analysis of our association’s website. The detail and insights provided gave us much needed direction in the re-design of our website, and will allow us to work much more efficiently with a web designer, which I’m sure will save us quite a bit of money in design time and SEO work. I especially value the fact that the entire review was recorded so that it can be revisited as needed, and shared with all the parties involved in the re-design process. Best Regards,
    Danny

    • Alan says:

      Thanks, Danny. I like the proactive approach that you and MBWEP are taking and I look forward to the next iteration of your website.

  • Alan was very helpful and energetic. I like the fact that he dug in to the content and the back end of my website to see what was going on. It was an hour and a half of constant information that was just what we needed. He also referred us to a colleague and we ended up hiring him for an on-site consult.

    Thank you Alan, for your wisdom and expertise!

  • Ashley says:

    Alan just visited us a couple of weeks ago for a private sales training and he was charismatic and very interesting to listen to! He had a lot of great pointers that we are currently trying to implement into our business now! We cannot wait to see and share the results from his informational training!

    • Alan says:

      Thanks, Ashley, I’m looking forward to hearing how these tips and ideas are working for you and Briscoe Manor as well. Please share.

  • After 19 years working in the Greater San Francisco Bay Area, I relocated to a new city. While I knew other DJs in town, I certainly had lost all of my referring vendors that made closing sales that much easier. Budgets in the new market were a tad below what they were in San Francisco, which meant that I was met with countless pricing objections — no matter how much I made couples fall in love with me. I have a background in motivation and influence marketing, but something working on your own material can drive you bonkers until you hit a roadblock.

    That’s where Alan came in and helped save the day. I’ve taken most of Alan’s seminars live, and have just about all of them on CD/DVD. But when I called upon him personally to get over this hurdle, he assisted in crafting a message that touched on the couple’s feelings, the excitement we had during our meeting, and the outcome they desired. While I’m still working my way back to the rate I made in San Francisco, I certainly believe that without Alan’s help, I’d be dealing with tire kickers all day long instead of creating magical experiences for couples that value what I have to offer.

    Thank you, Alan. I value our relationship more than you’ll ever know.

    • Alan says:

      Wow, Jason, thanks for your terrific comments. The kudos go to you for not being afraid to take the actions you needed, and not being afraid to invest in your own success. I look forward to seeing you in Las Vegas and hearing more stories of success.

  • Alan spent the day with us at Briscoe Manor (Richmond, TX) helping us to tidy up our website and captivate potential brides from the first interaction (even if on a computer screen). One of the best takeaways from the day time with Alan, was connecting the dots that if we just listen, they’ll tell us exactly what they need. Thanks for your time, Alan. I learned so much and plan to incorporate your advice. I am excited to see how it not only helps our company but improves the overall experience of our Briscoe brides. Something we love to improve on! We hope you loved Texas (and Torchy’s Tacos, ha!).

    • Alan says:

      Thanks, Jamie, it was great meeting you and the team at Briscoe Manor. I could see the lightbulbs going off and know that you’re going to start using those tips, right away. I look forward to hearing your stories of success, thanks.

  • Nick says:

    I hired Alan for a website review earlier this year. I had just finished rebranding my business which included a BRAND new website. I started paying for ads but wasn’t getting the calls I expected. ALAN to the RESCUE! He went over the important pages of the website with me, recorded a video of the consultation and even gave me a few sales tips. I will benefit from hiring him for as long as I stay in business! Thank you, Alan, thank you.

    • Alan says:

      Thanks, NIck, it’s great to hear that you’re seeing such success, so fast. That’s a testament to you taking action quickly. I applaud your enthusiasm and I look forward to seeing you in Vegas in the fall.

  • Diane Figari says:

    Thank you Alan for a fantastic seminar! I enjoyed your presentation as it was engaging, insightful and funny! I look forward to implementing all that I have learned. Kudos to you Alan!

    • Alan says:

      Thanks, Diane, it was great meeting you and the East Wind team. I’m already hearing stories of success (see Faith’s comments below) and I look forward to hearing them from you, as well.

  • Faith Crowell says:

    I recently had the pleasure of sitting in on one of Alan’s meetings and I have to say it was one of the most pleasurable experience’s I have had. I felt that Alan was not only easy to listen to but to relate to as well. He made sure to interact with us and didn’t just ‘ramble on’ for hours on end. He welcomed questions and made sure that we had a full understanding of everything he was explaining to us. I would travel great lengths to listen to Alan again… Shortly after his lecture I met with a couple interested in booking our venue and I took one very important piece of advice from Alan into action.. I simply ‘Shut Up’ and let our future bride & groom tell ME what the perks of them having their wedding with us was.. by the end of our meeting they left with a smile on their face, a warming feeling in their hearts & of course… a contract! Thanks to Alan I now go into every meeting with more confidence than ever and every couple can sense it and can’t wait to set the date! I would absolutely sit through another one of Alan’s meetings!

    • Alan says:

      Kudos, Faith, for putting what you learned into action. The learning means nothing without the action and I love hearing stories of success like this. Keep sharing please!

  • I had the pleasure of spending the day with Alan at East Wind. I have been in the Hospitality business for 30+ years and enjoyed Alan’s “fresh” and realistic approach to working with todays Bride. Ended the day with positive energy that will assist me in many ways. Thanks! Penny

    • Alan says:

      Thanks, Penny, that’s high-praise coming from someone with your industry experience. Positive energy is exactly how to connect with your customers and staff. I look forward to coming back out and working with you and the team at East Wind.

  • Donna Chider says:

    I throughly enjoyed Alan’s presentation. It was interactive, informative, helpful and fun. The time flew by and I never once thought to check the time, my phone or emails! I look forward to attending future workshops with Alan.

    • Alan says:

      Thanks, Donna. It was great working with you and the team at East Wind. I look forward to coming back and hearing more stories of success.

  • I have seen Alan many times at industry events including the WeddingMBA and Bridal Show Producers International conference. We decided to use Alan to review our customer’s expo websites usability and calls to action. Alan truly delivered on his promise to evaluate our site with an “independent perspective” and gave us concrete solutions toward getting better conversions from brides and grooms as well as potential exhibitors who come to our customers’ expo website.

    The concise and real world solutions delivered on stage as a speaker was exactly what we received with our one-on-one with him. Not only did he reflect actionable solutions he recorded our session for us to go over when ever we want.

    I have found many people who claim to be a marketing guru but Alan is one of the few who lives up to that title.

    Thank you Alan for your expert insight, you have improved all of our bridal show producers’ sites!

    Alan Berg never disappoints !
    each seminar is better than the last and I continue to learn and be able to use new techniques with my business and staff !

      Thanks, Soraya, it was great coming down to work with you and your team, and also to see you in DC. I look forward to working with you again, soon.

  • Alan was great! He’s energetic, a wealth of knowledge, and full of amazing ideas. Definitely worth the investment.

    • Alan says:

      Thanks, Maggie, for inviting me to come and do a Private Mastermind day with you and the other local wedding pros with whom you network. It was a great day, packed with lots of actionable items, and I’m happy to hear that you’re benefitting from our time together.

  • Maya Holihan says:

    Alan is simply amazing! His knowledge and expertise on succeeding in business and life is spot on. I hired him to review my company website and brought him in for a private training with my staff. We are still working on making the website changes he recommended, but even the little changes already made, have increased the daily traffic to my site, from about 520 to now approximately 630!
    Alan recently came to one of my stores and provided sales training for my staff and me. He was engaging, energetic, conversational, and spoke with my team in a manner that was truly relatable to them, and made the training fun! He offers a number of different perspectives and tools on how to maintain professionalism and enhance the client experience to close more sales. My girls absolutely loved him, and we have a new phrase when we discuss our appointments and client interaction, called “The Alan Way”. I have already witnessed higher productivity and an effort to implement what we learned, from so many of my staff. It’s paying off, with increased sales and absolutely wonderful client reviews.
    As the owner, he has provided me with a business platform that I will be able to refer to, and build upon as I continue to train and develop my team. His direction and honest feedback are priceless! I will definitely be bringing him back in the future!

      Thanks, Maya, you inspire me with all you’ve built into the House of Maya, and I’m honored to be invited to come in and work with you and your team. I love the energy among your team and I’m looking forward to coming back and continuing the “conversation” with them.

  • Bev Goldberg says:

    Amazing! .
    The review we had was incredibly helpful and insightful! Alan’s grasp of marketing and how to tease the customer into calling is like tossing bait to elusive fish.
    Alan has a “way with words” that totally mesmerizes. Even when you think you know what to do, he manages to put a new twist on things. Put one of his suggestions to work a few hours after his lecture; the client signed up within hours!!

      Thanks, Bev, it was great working with you and I love hearing how you immediately put into use some of the ideas… and are seeing the rewards. Keep sharing your success stories, thanks!

  • This was my fourth time hearing Alan speak, but the first in a one-on-one setting. Not only did he review our website and give us fantastic tips to make sure that we’re getting a return on our time and our investment in marketing, but he spent time with our enormous staff ensuring that they were all on the same page with regards to customer service. His conversational approach cannot be matched – he’ll make you feel comfortable, he’ll make you laugh, and all while bestowing his epic knowledge and advice. Words cannot express just how grateful I am to have had the opportunity, and I look forward to meeting with him again in the future.

    • Alan says:

      Thanks, Misty, for spearheading having me come in to work with the team at House of Maya. I love what you guys are doing and it’s an honor to be a part of it.

  • Siraj Hasan says:

    I recently had a one and one consultation with Alan about my website. I think if anyone is serious about their business and want to grow their business either thru their web site or any form of marketing, Alan is the person you should talk to. I would highly recommend Alan to all my photographer friends and also Videographer’s who are in the business or want to start their own business. All in all this will be the best investment any company will make is to hire Alan who will help them and guide them to grow their business.

    • Alan says:

      Thanks, Siraj, your photos and videos are beautiful. Now it’s time to surround those with a website that does them justice. I’m looking forward to seeing it and hearing your stories of success.

  • Nick says:

    Alan was very detailed in his website review. He went above and beyond just a website review, He took a look at my Google analytics, gave me some sales tips and gave me tips on how to raise my rates. All of this while keeping it fun and light. He is a true professional in every sense of the word and really really cares about his clients. I have recommended him to other companies that I have work with. What I learned from him in 2 hours will benefit my business for as long as I continue working, thank you Alan!

    • Alan says:

      Thanks, Nick, it was great working with you. I loved reading your reviews and seeing how your clients love what you do for them. I look forward to seeing the changes on your site, and hearing your stories of success. Please share.

  • Chris Marino says:

    Alan was great with my website review! He provided me with fantastic examples and a clear picture of what I needed to do to help improve conversion. He is extremely knowledgable and a pleasure to work with. I would recommend Alan to anyone in the wedding business.

  • Lisa Morales says:

    Alan…IT WORKED! A bride emailed me asking me for my price. I attached my 3 packages and told her that I would love to discuss it further. “I wouldn’t want her to pay any more than she needed to, to have the wedding she wanted.” I gave her a price range with the average being xyz. She replied that she was happy that I had options and different rates for her as all the other planners only had a flat fee. We’re meeting tomorrow.

    • Alan says:

      Wow, Lisa, thanks for sharing. Sometimes it’s the little things that make the biggest impact. Good luck with the appointment.

  • Dan Bitcon says:

    The Best 2 hours I have ever spent on Marketing and I have been in business for 30 years !!!
    I new he was amazing when I herd him speak but to have him to myself for 2 hours was fantastic !
    I highly recommend him to help your business .

    • Alan says:

      Thanks, Dan, that’s high-praise coming from someone with your background. I look forward to seeing your new site, and hearing how much better it’s working for you. Please share.

  • Melissa Coe says:

    I have heard of Alan Berg over the years as being THE Marketing Guru for the wedding industry but assumed that since my website had been professionally done, it didn’t need fixing. However, when I decided to reposition my market focus, Alan’s name was the one that kept popping into my head. So, I asked for a website review and WOW. I can’t say enough about Alan and his attention to detail, to the little nuances that make a huge difference in perception, to content, form and structure. The time we spent was ILLUMINATING, INFORMATIVE, INSTRUCTIONAL, IMPORTANT and INVALUABLE. Alan is a very generous, perceptive and accessible expert who takes whatever time is necessary to explain and illustrate. Hire him – he’s clearly the best!

    • Alan says:

      Thanks, Melissa, it was great working with you. Your clients clearly love what you do for them. I’m looking forward to seeing your new, and improved website experience. Let me know how else I can help.

  • Ara Gelenian says:

    I had seen Alan a few times in person at various conferences and knew how great he was. I hired him a few months back to review my Videography website. I expected Alan to be awesome. He was more than awesome. He knew exactly how to point out where to improve my website, what was already working, and how those improvements would look to potential clients. Alan is fantastic when it comes to giving realistic, concrete ideas that are current and that will improve your company. They say Alan is the expert. Believe it!

    • Alan says:

      Thanks, Ara, I’m looking forward to see your improved site, and hearing your stories of success. Let me know how else I can help.

  • Rod Randall says:

    I had Alan do a website review for my DJ company. Here’s the bad news. He is going to give you so many ideas to improve your site that you will HAVE TO hire him again to give you EVEN MORE! That’s what I did and I don’t regret it at all. Alan’s insights are like crack cocaine – you get a taste and you want more. And we aren’t talking the simple basic things that you can find anywhere online. Alan has an incredible wealth of knowledge that he will share with you that will improve your business.

    • Alan says:

      Thanks, Rod. It’s been great watching the progress of your business and website. I’m looking forward to more great things for you in 2015 and beyond.

  • David says:

    Did you ever look in the mirror and notice something you never noticed before? Or maybe there’s something about your personality that you never realized until someone makes you aware of it. That’s exactly what Alan will do for your website. We spend so much time looking at and updating our websites we can’t see it clearly from a viewer’s perspective. Hiring Alan Berg is the smartest investment you can for your website. He will find everything that can be improved on your website big or small and show you how you can easily fix it. Alan not only show you want needs to be improved, but more importantly he shows you the why behind it. No matter what level your website is at right now, hire Alan now and watch your business grow!

    • Alan says:

      Thanks, David. We’ve been working together for a few years now and you’re always so proactive with your website and marketing, never satisfied with being the best. You’re constantly raising the bar and that’s refreshing to see. I also remember the first time we talked about your site and to see it now is an amazing transformation. Kudos to you.

  • Joe Bauer says:

    Alan is the consumate expert of wedding business analysis. I was amazed at how insightful he was with the little bit of information that he had about my business. He was able to drill down and give me specific actions that I could take immediately to make a positive influence on my business. His advice on networking was seemingly elementary yet had escaped me until he pointed it out- You give…and THEN you get. After spending time with Alan, I now know why he is one of the most respected and sought after speakers in the industry. Thanks for your time and advice.

    • Alan says:

      Thanks, Joe. I love how open you are to moving your business forward and I look forward to hearing your success stories.

  • Vanessa says:

    Alan was amazing and very inspirational. I enjoyed listening to everything that he had to talk about. Thanks Alan for all your great ideas.

  • I needed to consult with a person who could give truly qualified advice and expertise in making websites effective in converting visitors into customers. I believe that Alan is that person. I had the opportunity to see him speak at my catering association recently and realized that this was the person I was hoping to find to help me take my music teaching business to another level. It just happened that he offered a special deal with us for his website consultation service. I took him up on it right there and scheduled a consultation. The consultation was done over the laptop and phone. Alan could show me things online in real-time including my website and point out things to tweak and work on. A recording of the whole session is made, which is a great benefit because I could go back and review. I listened to the whole thing again about three times and went back to many different sections to catch good nuggets of advice. On the fly, Alan would go over the text content line by line and re-word it in a way that an expert of his caliber could only do. The recording allowed me to tap those exact words and implement them into my revised website. Our session lasted for two hours, but not one bit was wasted. It didn’t seem like a long two hours. It went by smoothly and fast. Alan was engaged and focused upon my business for our time together. He was kind, humorous, honest, and delightful. My intent was to make sure that I get an ROI from our consultation. I immediately went to work to implement his changes and recommendations. I would like nothing more than to write a second review to tell you that my numbers have increased dramatically for my business because of Alan. Stay tuned….

    • Alan says:

      Thanks, Emmanuel. I already took a look and the changes look great. You might be teachers, but you’re also a really good student. I’m looking forward to hearing how the changes are affecting your conversion rate. In just one week you’ve taken the look forward very far. Kudos!

  • Donna says:

    Alan Berg is amazing and inspiring! It was extremely refreshing to have him onsite. He is very easy to listen to. He had an answer to all of our questions. In addition to helping our business with the sales aspect, I felt I could use his advice in everyday life. Thank you so much for your time and sharing your knowledge with our team. Look forward to your novel. If you are reading this review wondering if you should invest in his services…Just Do It! He is worth it.

    • Alan says:

      Thanks, Donna, it was great working with you. I’m looking forward to hearing your stories of success. Let me know how else I can help you.

  • Roger Igo says:

    Alan Berg was helpful, informative, professional, well spoken, and inspiring. Thanks Alan!

    • Alan says:

      Thanks, Roger. It was great meeting the team at The Bell Tower and seeing your beautiful property. I’m looking forward to coming back to work with you again.

  • Ryan Angott says:

    I have been using Alan’s consulting services for just over 3 years. I have found his knowledge and insight to be invaluable to our business. Since we began, our net profit has tripled from his guidance in helping elevate our marketing appeal and refining our sales process. Thanks Alan, you helped me buy my new Cadillac!

    • Alan says:

      Thanks, Ryan, it’s always a pleasure to work you. You have a very proactive and progressive approach to marketing, and it shows in your success. Now, I want a ride in the new Caddy!

  • Alan!!

    I owed you a review for much too long…world here’s my story. I met Alan at an industry meeting for entertainment professionals in Seattle. I hired him to work with me to improve my website. After our 2 hour rich and thorough consultation I was wanted to quit the business. I was beyond overwhelmed with all that he recommended. I sat on his advise for 6 months before I mustered up the courage to begin the work. After implementing his advise my business has grown steadily. He is worth every penny for consulting and coaching. You just have to have the guts to make it happen.

    • Alan says:

      Thanks, Brooklyn. Taking the first step is hard, but it’s empowering at the same time. Kudos to you for moving forward. I know I’ll be hearing success stories from you. Let me know how I can help.

  • Howard Fritz says:

    Alan is just fabulous! In a single consultation he gave me the knowledge transform my website to perform exactly as it should! In it’s first thirty days of operations I have received more inquiries than I have received in a single year, for each of the four years my previous website was up!

    • Alan says:

      Thanks, Howard, I’m so glad you’re seeing such positive results, so quickly. I look forward to hearing more stories of success after we have our session on closing these leads!

  • Peggy says:

    I started working with Alan about a year ago. His advice and guidance has made the difference
    in my business. I was on the treadmill, not working on but only working in the day to day..
    Alan has made me look at the “bigger picture” and where I can take my company. He has guided
    and hope continue to guide me to REAL success. thank you Alan!!!

    • Alan says:

      Thanks, Peggy. It great to see your business growing and I love your big picture thinking. It must be your architectural background… except now you’re building a business!

  • Melissa Tripp says:

    Since first hearing Alan speak at the Wedding MBA in Las Vegas three years ago and hearing about his private website reviews I knew it was something I wanted to do. Almost three years later after launching a new part of our business and having it not really take off like I wanted it to I decided it was time. Since the website review and recommendation for changes and us implementing some of those (we are not done yet) we have seen thing really start to get off the ground here and I could not be happier with the decision to hire Alan. I can’t wait to see what happens as we finish making the changes!

    • Alan says:

      Thanks, Melissa, it was great working with you and we look forward to being a part of your future success.

  • Angela Dimopoulos says:

    I have seen Alan speak at several Wedding Wire events and Wedding MBA and always came away from his sessions so informed. I never realized until recently how approachable he was and that he would actually come to our small business and help us better our sales process. This past week he sat down with our 4 team members and shared a wealth of information to better improve responding to sales leads and gave suggestions to improve our overall website. I look forward to continuing to work with Alan to enhance our sales process in the months and years to come.

    • Alan says:

      Thanks, Angela, for taking the initiative to have me come in and work with your team. I felt a great energy with your team and I look forward to hearing all of your stories of success.

  • I have known Alan for many years, even back to the WeddingPages days, and I have always found his advice to be extremely helpful. Our company produces bridal shows and, while business is good, there is always room for improvement. I scheduled a couple hours of Alan’s time with the goal of helping our primary salesperson improve her skills. She has been running into several challenges and wanted some outside advice, and Alan came through with flying colors. She has new found motivation and confidence as a result of our consultation. As a bonus, Alan reviewed our primary marketing piece and, in spite of recently winning an industry award as the best in the industry, he was able to make several suggestions to make it even better. The investment of time and money I made with Alan was well worth it and we plan to go back for a marketing ‘tune up’ on a regular basis.

    • Alan says:

      Thanks, Marc, I love working with you because you’re an innovator and you understand that if you want others to invest in your business, you have to invest in it first.

  • Jordan Brian says:

    I missed Alan speaking at the Association of Bridal Consultants meeting a few years ago and finally heard him speak at an ISES event a few weeks ago. I was blown away about how he really understands the industry and helping you explain your passion to your clients and not simply trying to sell them. He offered a website consultation as one of his services and I booked it that night. He spent about 2 hours with me reviewing every detail of my site and my email responses. Honestly I was shocked by how thorough he was with helping me. Each line of text, layout and design of my site was looked at and he gave me incredible input. After hearing him change up some of my site’s verbiage, I wanted to hire myself on the spot! At no point did he mention that we had to wrap things up as we were getting close to the end of the consultation. His website review consultation is a very high return on investment because you are investing in your self and the knowledge that he shares is a game changer. Thanks again!

    • Alan says:

      Thanks, Jordan, you have beautiful photos on your site and I’m looking forward to hearing how tweaking the text is helping your conversion. I appreciate you giving me the opportunity to help with this.

  • Today I was speaking with Alan personally, It was a great experience. He opened my eyes about our mistakes and show me a better way. He made my day. I can say like everyone else. You have to reach him! If you want to offer better service, better website you have to. It is really easy to talk with him, he is a gentleman with style. Thank you Alan. I’m looking forward to work with you in the future. “Mil Gracias desde Punta Cana, Republica Dominicana!”

    • Alan says:

      Muchas gracias, Daniel. Fue muy bueno que hablar contigo. Espero poder llegar a Punta Cana pronto. Por favor comparta sus historias de éxito.

  • Josh Hartman says:

    I was first introduced to Alan a few months ago through a WeddingWire webinar. I was so impressed! I immediately implemented some of the techniques he shared in the webinar. Then I had the awesome opportunity to chat one on one with Alan. He learned about our business and reviewed my business plan, website, and marketing material. I couldn’t believe how much we accomplished. I had 5 pages of typed notes. I’m so excited to make the changes that he suggested. Alan helped take our marketing to the next level.

    • Alan says:

      Thanks, Josh, it’s refreshing to see a young photographer, with a young company, being so proactive. Others should learn from your example. I look forward to hearing more stories of your success and seeing how I can continue to be a part of it.

  • Alan’s insights into online marketing are spot on. After meeting with him, I have so many ideas it will be hard to decide what to implement first. This is such a great problem to have. Hint: Alan said, make a list, commit to the top three and save the rest for later.

  • Rob Peters says:

    I have seen Alan speak several times over the past few years, and we decided to contract him to consult with us on our website. His review was thorough, indepth and full of ideas and concepts that I can not wait to implement! he took me through an indepth tour of what was working and isn’t working on our site to meet our goals and help us increase business.

    I always left a presentation with Alan inspired and full of notes and ideas. After this website review, 5 pages of notes and a copy of the recording, I am looking forward to implementing the ideas and concepts we discussed to help increase our business. If you’re considering hiring Alan to review your website, JUST DO IT…it was worth the investment just to have him share his expertise to help make MY business better.

    • Alan says:

      Thanks, Rob, it’s always great to have you in my audiences, and a privilege to personally work with you to take your already successful business to the next level.

  • Bronwen says:

    Thank you, Alan, for meeting with Sunny and I this morning to discuss the Gold Label Cleaners website. We found your comments helpful and illuminating. You’ve given us a good direction for the design, especially in your suggestion of restructuring the navigation menu to better target the customer. The pacing and organization of the consultation made it easy to follow. You were personable and responded directly to our questions. It was a pleasure to work with you. We appreciate that you made yourself available to answer questions after the initial meeting and underscored the idea that you provide service in an ongoing capacity.

    • Alan says:

      Thanks, Bronwen, it was a pleasure working with you. I’m looking forward, with anticipation, to seeing the final design.

  • Alan in an engaging speaker with unparalleled expertise in the wedding industry. His presentation was a great mix of big ideas and real life examples. At the end of the day my team was pumped! We left with real solutions to problems we weren’t even aware that we had. Within a week we had implemented some of these solutions and saw immediate results.

    • Alan says:

      Thanks, Julia, I always have a great time with your team. I’m so proud of your growth and honored to be a part of it.

  • I found Alan’s training really motivated the whole sales team. Alan gave us fresh new ideas and techniques to implement which have proved very effective.

    Alan’s training was very inspirational and I would recommend him highly.

    • Alan says:

      Thanks, John. It was great meeting you and spending time with you and your team. I’m looking forward to hearing big things coming out of your offices.

  • Alan thank you! My experience with you was: you are simple in your approach and in your speech, yet the results are PROFOUND.Met you on two occasions but cant ignore you any more. If i would be in another 16 hour flight, i would, just to draw from your well.

    • Alan says:

      Thanks, Dudu, to you and Leema for traveling all the way from South Africa for the AWGS conferences. I always enjoy speaking with you and I’ll reach out so we can arrange a virtual consultation (so you don’t have to travel 16 hours, this time).

  • Fresh ideas that really work; our sales team were energised and motivated by Alan’s techniques and the results have been evident in increased sales and a new energy in the office. Inspirational.

    • Alan says:

      Thanks, Alison. You have a great team and I look forward to coming back to work with all of you again, and hearing more stories of success.

  • Ali Moore says:

    WOW !! what a fantastic couple of days we had with Alan going through email responding, mirroring clients responses and telling them what they need to know, not what we think they should know as well as getting more from the clients.
    From his experience in the wedding industry I felt it helped the whole company and have been using some of the tips and experience he has given me and has given me more confidence in my selling and our products.
    Alan’s training is a must for any business, with his fresh approach and fantastic tips you would be missing out if you haven’t seen him.

    Thank you Alan for all your help very much appreciated.

    • Alan says:

      Thanks, Ali. I look forward to hearing how you and the team are using that newfound confidence. Please share your success stories with me.

  • John says:

    Alan is extremely knowledgable when it comes to website. In less than 2 hours, I now have a massive amount of information that I can now use for my new site design. Well worth my time and money!

    • Alan says:

      Thanks, John. Be sure to make some of the changes to your current site while you’re working on the new one. Then you’ll start to see the results right away. I look forward to working with you on the new site.

  • As soon as I heard Alan start speaking on a recent webinar, 4 Steps to More Sales, I knew I was going to walk away with a broader understanding of how better to market my brand. I was then lucky enough to have won a valuable 90 minute one on one session with him where we were able to discuss in great detail the importance of how to market. Alan took the time to answer all the questions I had and he was an absolute pleasure to learn from. His knowledge and attention to detail had me walk away from our session feeling confident in the future success of my business. Alan is very patient, easy to speak with, and a wonderful educator! Thank you again for sharing your knowledge with me and providing me with the stepping stones for further growth!

    • Alan says:

      Thanks, Jackie. It was great working with you and I know you’re heading for bigger and better things, especially since you’re about to get the same degree that I have (a BBA) from the same university (Pace)!

  • Emma Stone says:

    It was my first week working for Guides for Brides and the time we spent learning new techniques with Alan has certainly set me up for a successful career in sales. I quickly made my first sale, using his fantastic approach and attitude towards helping our customers to buy the product that they need.

  • Jackie says:

    A very inspirational couple of days in which I learnt a lot about sales techniques. Many thanks Alan for sharing your expertise with us at Guides for Brides.

  • Nicky Ward says:

    After seeing Alan speak at Wedding MBA in Las Vegas in 2013, it was great to bring him to our business for a couple of days.
    As a manager, sometimes you can get a ‘bit stuck in your ways’and need a helping hand with re-motivating both yourself and the team, as well as reminding yourself of the skills that you have. Alan has definitely done that for me!

    • Alan says:

      Thanks, Nicky. You have a great team and I was honored that you invited me to work with you, and them. I look forward to coming back and seeing the upward momentum in full-swing.

  • I found Alan Berg’s approach to marketing and telemarketing extremely useful and would recommend Alan’s training particularly to those in the wedding industry.

  • Alan I have to commend you on the excellent job you did training us as a team at Reception Palace Ballrooms. We learned so much with all of your advice and pointers and are still trying to use all the knowledge you gave us to our fullest extent. We couldn’t have had a better one on one training and I would recommend anyone using your expert skills to better their business.
    Thanks again !

    • Alan says:

      Thanks, Alexys, I really enjoyed getting to know your team and seeing the wonderful things you do for your clients. I look forward to coming back and working with you, again.

  • Dex Newberry says:

    Hiring Alan may very well be the best thing I’ve ever done for my business. My website is both functional and beautiful! He advised me on tons of other aspects of my business as well. I couldn’t have asked for more!

    • Alan says:

      Thanks, Dex. It’s great to have a good student, like you, who not only asks for advice, but implements it. That’s where the magic happens. Thanks for allowing me to be a part of it.

  • Lane' says:

    I had the pleasure of hearing Alan speak to our group and immediately afterwards, signed up for a website review. In just a few short days I met with Alan who went through every single page of my website, providing valuable and insightful feedback. It was great to have a fresh set of eyes to coach and offer suggestions, many of which I had not thought of myself. I was so excited after meeting with Alan that I immediately started making changes based on his recommendations. I listened to our recording of the session (very helpful) so nothing was missed. While I was a little resistant with a few of his recommendations, I have to say they have all been very, very well received by others and I’ve seen an increase in my inquiries (and bookings) since. Thank you, Alan, for your expert guidance!

    • Alan says:

      Thanks, Lané, the changes look great on your site. You’ve been so proactive, I’m sure that you’ll continue to feel the benefits of the changes. Thanks for letting me be part of your success.

  • Steve Sharp says:

    I first met Alan a couple of years ago at Wedding MBA in Las Vegas. I think I took more notes during his presentations than in anyone else’s! I then had the opportunity to hear him speak here in Portland when he visited last year and learned even more. His advice inspired me to completely overhaul my website, at which point I started hearing praise from couples telling me how much they loved my site after visiting others. Alan returned to Portland a few weeks ago, and of course I signed up for his seminar. He touched on so many points that were valuable to me that I signed up for a personal website consulting session on the spot. I knew my site was already performing well, but Alan helped me see a dozen ways I could make it even better. I started making those changes as soon as our session was finished, and I’m already seeing results. Next year is booking up!

  • Anshwa Lewis says:

    I met Alan at the Wedding Marketing Expo in Austin, TX. Everything he mentioned about taking your wedding planning business to the next level, from printed materials to websites made so much sense to me. I bought all of his audio discs and a couple of books too!

    After taking some time to absorb everything, I am PROUD to report that in the first 45days of changing my website I have gone from no bookings to 5 weddings and ALL of them are my Target Brides!

    The best investment in my marketing strategy was getting 90minutes with you! Thanks for all you do!

    • Alan says:

      Thanks, Anshwa, I’m so happy to hear of your success and honored that you have made me a part of it. Please continue to share your successes with me.

  • Rod Taylor says:

    Alan spoke at our 20th wedding show anniversary earlier this month. What a treat! Alan brought humor and practical advice we could employ the next day. Even so…the web site review portion was my favorite. It consisted of time reviewing the good and “needs a little work” parts of the site. Upon reflection, Alan did two things for us; told us how to save money and showed us how to make more money. What’s not to like about that!!

    • Alan says:

      Thanks Rod, it was great of you to include me in your 20th anniversary celebration. I’m glad you enjoyed the website review workshop. It’s one of my favorite sessions, too.

  • Dick Jordan says:

    What an eye-opening 90 minutes I spent with Alan as he dissected our website line by line, page by page. Being somewhat the wordsmith myself, I found it fascinating how the subtle nuances Alan suggested brought our text to life, and made our graphics tell our story,….personalizing our message directly to the viewer. We will definitely incorporate his plan into our efforts to convert viewers into buyers, and hire him as our sounding board for expansion plans going forward!

  • Alan knows the wedding industry, he knows marketing and he knows websites! I walked away from our website review feeling empowered to take my Wedding Hair business to the top! Thank you Alan for sharing your ideas with me today!

  • Wes Bailey says:

    My first session with Alan was a good experience. He truly attempted to learn about our industry and then give advice, rather than having set in stone opinions or thoughts. He came up with some great enhancements I hadn’t considered, and I will definitely use him again.

  • Alan Katz says:

    Alan and I have sat one on one on numerous occasions discussing how to make my vision of being the best in the industry come to reality. His ideas coupled with my eager desire to succeed has made me one of the top Officiants in the country. Thanks Alan

  • I have been in the wedding industry for 20 years owning or working with various aspects of the industry. Three years ago I took on the role of General Manager for a bridal salon in Kansas City. I knew that part of the direction our team needed was an outside professional to challenge their beliefs about sales and get them to think differently about the process, purpose and outcome. Alan came to our store to work with our sales team. He engaged them in a way that proved to be captivating for them and resulted in lasting impact for our business. We intend to bring him back yearly to train new staff and bring fresh perspectives and energy as we continue to grow our business. Thank you Alan for all you do and the expertise and energy you bring to the table!

  • Anshwa Lewis says:

    I am a new small business owner, and for the past 7 months, I’ve been soaking up as many educational opportunities as possible in the wedding industry. I heard Alan speak at the Wedding Marketing Expo I attended last week and within the first ten minutes of his discussion to the group- I had three pages of notes of things I needed to do to propel my business. He told us what we NEEDED to hear and was also inspirational and encouraging at the same time. I immediately purchased his books and audio CDs and scheduled a consultation. After completing our consulting conversation yesterday, I am fully confident that my website will attract more of the right leads after I implement everything we discussed. His audio files have also inspired me to remain positive through my growing pains and that I have a choice to ‘put away my pity card’. Looking forward to sharing my growth in the near future!

    • Alan says:

      Thanks, Anshwa, it’s great working with new business people who are being so proactive. I look forward to being part of your success.

  • BB Webb says:

    In 10 years as the owner of Carl House, a special event venue, just outside of Atlanta, it’s curious as to how many small shifts and turns the industry we work in, (weddings) has taken and how challenged I feel at times in ‘keeping up’ to both bring in new business and serve them at the level I envision.

    I met Alan at the Wedding Market Expo earlier this year as we were both featured speakers. I was delighted to hear him talk but loved most our consulting session afterwards where he noted a few basic, new ideas for me to share with my team to improve our website and for drawing in more business. We continue to develop and implement the ideas he shared and find with each one we accomplish, good things happen.

    Thank you Alan for your expertise, willingness to dive into the details and the supportive vibe you share. As a business owner, it’s easy to feel disappointed in not seeing some great solutions sooner, but then, that’s why I surround myself with GREAT people, like Alan. Thanks so much.

  • Damon DeVito says:

    Affinity Management handles hundreds of weddings annually at clubs and properties under management. Just when we think we have seen everything, some new twist comes along and stumps us. When that happens we call Alan. He is, quite simply, a genius with a gentle touch. We have worked with him numerous times, and he always is able to quickly provide practical solutions around which consensus is easily built. Feel free to contact me directly if you have other questions at ddevito@affinitymanagement.com.

    • Alan says:

      Thanks, Damon. I appreciate your thoughts and it’s always great to work with someone as progressive as you.

  • Alister Kidd says:

    Just a note to thank you for the knowledge you imparted through the series of presentations you delivered last week and which I can only describe as a unique and effective blend of Digital & Traditional Sales & Marketing best practices.

    Having been in the Digital arena for best part of seventeen years I can honestly say your approach and delivery was the most comprehensive, yet simple to understand package of presentations and advice I have witnessed. Again I thank you.

    I look forward to your next visit to Ireland.

    • Alan says:

      Thanks, Alister, it was great to see you again and I look forward to coming back to Ireland again, soon.

  • Sara says:

    Thank you so very much for taking the time and setting up an online consultation. I strongly feel that you gave me the tools that I can use to re-design a better performing website. I look forward to showing you the re-design based on your tips. For anyone reading this Alan went through my entire site step by step and really gave me some pointers on how to tweak and give more of a call to action site. Thank you again for the wonderful knowledge and your time.

    • Alan says:

      Thanks, Sara. I’m looking forward to your new, and improved, website. No doubt with your beautiful photos, and the tips we discussed today, it will look and work great.

  • Sally Conant says:

    You offer so much more than tweaks and technical tips–your approach was a whole new look that integrates marketing, design and technology Can’t wait to take advantage of all your great ideas!

  • Thought you might want to see the “almost” finished product. Some tweaks but I think it looks great! I can’t thank you enough for all of your help, advice and support. It is an enormous undertaking to Rebrand an established business but you made the process so much easier and fun at the same time. I owe you a great deal of gratitude. Thank you Alan!!!! http://www.kellinoelweddings.com

    • Alan says:

      Thanks, Kelli, it was fun working with you and I look forward to seeing your business bloom like the “flower” in your hair!

  • Tracy Adams says:

    I just spent (2) hours on a conference call with Alan to discuss the status/content of my current Web site. Boy, did he shed some great light on updates and changes that I must make immediately; not now, but RIGHT now!! Alan suggested excellent and easy to follow steps in my path to help me improve my Web site to get users to take action while they visit. I look forward to implementing Alan’s suggestions to see a better return on investment from those who visit my site. Alan, thanks so much for your time and talent!

  • Michelle Puccio says:

    I am yet to launch my wedding business, however I reached out to Alan all the way from Australia, to discuss my new business model and goal setting.
    I am so grateful for the opportunity to work with Alan, who is so knowledgeable, personable and results orientated. During the discussion, Alan provided me with realistic and attainable goals that I can work towards. In just one session, I am confident with the direction I am taking with my business and I look forward to continuing to work with Alan as I prepare to launch my business.
    No matter how big or small your business, or whether you are fully established or a start-up, I would highly recommend Alan! Thank you for all your advice and support so far, Alan!

    • Alan says:

      Thanks, Michelle. It’s great working with someone who’s being proactive with her business, as you are. Too many other people try to plod their way along when they can get a jump start with advice from those that have experienced it already. I look forward to watching your business flourish.

  • Sarah Mandel says:

    Hi Alan,
    I just took your survey about “being too busy to be successful”. I feel that way a lot and am really disappointed that I will miss the opportunity to hear you speak again, as I will be on vacation. Your presence at Wedding MBA 2011 was the main reason I attended and I will be forever grateful to you, as the information that I gleaned motivated me to rebrand and build a new website. Your advice in developing a modern website was and continues to be invaluable. Hiring you as a consultant was the best move I have made in pushing my business forward. I try to see you speak in person whenever possible, and recently attended your seminar in Chicago on corresponding by email. As a Baby Boomer I prefer to speak to my clients on the phone, but it is not about me, it is about my young clients who prefer to contact me by email. I immediately put the tips you gave into practice and am seeing more follow-up emails which will hopefully turn into more business.
    In summary, you are da bomb. I wish you a happy and healthy New Year!

    • Alan says:

      Thanks, Sarah, it’s great to work with you as I know you’ll take the actions necessary to succeed. You’ve already proven that with your actions.

  • I have known Alan Berg for years and have always found him to be a great source of current, valuable and practical marketing advice. Even though I do a lot of speaking and sales training myself, sometimes finding myself on the same stage as Alan, I know that I always have new things to learn. I recently scheduled a one-hour consultation with Alan and walked away with four solid new ideas that will improve my company’s marketing program almost immediately. He is a wealth of knowledge and knows the challenges that wedding professionals face when trying to promote their businesses in today’s competitive environment. Your investment in his services will be money well spent!

    • Alan says:

      Thanks, Marc. It’s always great working with you as you’re progressive and open to new ideas. I’ve enjoyed watching your success over the years and I’m happy that you allow me to be a part of it.

  • Bill Freeman says:

    I am a wedding officiant in a very competitive regional market. I hired Alan for two website consultant sessions. When I was literally in the middle of a major website redesign, I participated in a webinar he lead on building websites that really work. It became very clear to me that I needed to pull him in to review my site while it was being developed. I also hired him to review my website after the launch. At both junctures, he provided awesome feedback about making my site more functional — getting potentials couples to contact me.

    I am also a university professor teaching business and marketing courses to grad students. I know “slick and empty”; he’s not. I can’t overstate his insight and the value that he provided. What was clearly worth thousands of dollars, I was able to secure for less than one thousand dollars. I now have a website that engages and pulls potential couples in. In just the first three weeks of my website’s launch, my inquiries (couples filling out my “Contact” form), increased by 350%! Imagine what the future holds. This guy rocks! Hire him now!

    • Alan says:

      Thanks, Rev. Bill, I really appreciate your comments. You are a joy to work with and your site reflects that you are progressive in more ways than one.

  • Sarah Mandel says:

    Dear Alan,

    I read your email regarding “The Name Strategy” with great interest and agreement. The surge in my business after re-naming it to “Classic Wedding Car” and the purchase of “ClassicWeddingCar.com” is nothing short of phenomenal. It is hard to say what was more important, building a fresh, modern website or purchasing around 15 relevant domain names and pointing them toward my business. Most of the changes I have made to my 25+year old business were inspired by attending Wedding MBA last year and hiring you as a consultant. I look forward to seeing you again at Wedding MBA and if you want to use me as an example of a success story feel free. Much of my success was due to your sage advice!

    All the best,
    Sarah Mandel

    • Alan says:

      Thanks, Sarah. It was great to work with you and to see the transformation. My reward is always working with people who take action and then reap the rewards. I look forward to seeing you at Wedding MBA again this year.

  • Ryan Angott says:

    Over the course of the year using Alan’s consultation we have increased our website conversions 30% by having a more inspirational, engaging website. This means hundreds of thousands of dollars to our business. Thanks Alan for all you have done.

    • Alan says:

      Thanks, Ryan. It’s a testament to the actions that you’ve taken that you’re seeing the results. Hearing what to change is only the first step. Acting on the ideas is how you see results. Thanks for letting me be a part of your success.

  • Thank you Alan

    You truly packed the hour with great information. It shows me once again that Web Designers are good technically but really don’t have a marketing clue some days.

    Thank you again

    • Alan says:

      Thanks, Kathy. I really enjoy working with you as I know you’re taking the ideas back and acting on them right away. That’s very refreshing. I look forward to our next session.

  • I had a great online consultation with Alan and got some badly-needed feedback that I was able to immediately use to improve my website.

    Thank you Alan, for your invaluable input!!!

    • Alan says:

      Thanks, Jack, I’m looking forward to seeing your new site. Your content is good, it just needs new “clothes”.

  • Jay Thomson says:

    Alan,
    We had a fantastic consultation with you yesterday and my team was very impressed with your knowledge and expertise on many different levels. You were right on, as usual, with where we’re trying to take our business and we look forward to our next consultation with you in the coming weeks! Thank You!!

  • Had an awesome phone meeting last night with my web marketing guru Alan Berg! We did about 3 hours of going through the website and fine tuning every word, link and design. He is truly a master. I can’t wait to share with you in the next few weeks what we’ve been working on!!

    If you’re in the wedding industry and not a band leader, I HIGHLY recommend setting up some phone consulting time with him. He’s not cheap, but the best never is. If you feel your marketing need to be refreshed contact him right way.

    You can also attend some of his lectures or order some of his many marketing books. I’m lucky to have him on my team. You will be too. Thanks Alan Berg!!

  • Damon DeVito says:

    Alan is terrific. In our initial phone consultation he answered questions dead on and provided high value insight that we can use at every country club and golf course we manage that has a wedding facility. We will be doing more with Alan to involve him in our marketing efforts.

    • Alan says:

      Thanks, Damon, I love hearing about all of the eco-friendly things that Musket Ridge is doing to not only satisfy its customers, but also to leave a smaller footprint. I look forward to working more with you on this and other projects.

  • Laura says:

    Very insightful, sound advice that will get you going in the right direction – consulting with Alan is a smart move for anyone running a business! Thanks Alan!

  • Fiore says:

    Alan conducted a two day training session this past week that totally invigorated our sales team. His ability to present the facts in layman’s terms as well as give detailed examples of how our team should interact and what buttons to push were incredible. His vast experience in all aspects of marketing, branding and sales have been a tremendous help to our organization. We look forward to a continued partnership with Alan for 2012.

    As Alan stated:
    “Price matters only after all other factors are satisfied”.

    Why people buy:

    “Fear, Guilt, Greed and Love”.

    Thanks again Alan!

      Thanks, Fiore. I really enjoyed working with your team for the two days. They are very engaged and I can’t wait to see the successes that 2012 will bring.

  • Beau Kramer says:

    Alan’s one of the best speakers on wedding marketing I’ve ever heard. His insights have helped us stay successful and grow every year.

  • We hired Alan to review the ‘go-to-market’ strategy for our start-up and provide feedback on several different issues. His exceptional knowledge of the event planning industry was exactly what our team needed to get on the right track. In a very short amount of time Alan was able to provide us with several intelligent suggestions, many of which we plan on incorporating before our upcoming launch. Hopefully this is just the beginning of our relationship. Thanks!

  • Jason Wade says:

    It is rare to find a web/marketing consultant who has the right mix of humility, expertise, and vision. Alan has it all. Thanks!

  • Larry says:

    Alan’s insight provided key suggestions not only to my website, but also my knot profile & FB accounts. A total marketing package which was very easily understood. As Alan offers advice on how to enhance or tweek your marketing campaign you experience that “light bulb,” moment.
    You know, where the light bulb goes on and it all becomes very clear as to what you need to do to increase sales…and that was with a phone consultation! Definitely worth the call.

    • Alan says:

      Thanks, Larry. It was pleasure working with you and Mary. I love that you’re already working on the updates. I look forward to seeing your new and improved marketing.

  • I was a participant at this week’s Wedding MBA Conference in Vegas and I just wanted to let you know that I think you are a phenomenal person! I thoroughly enjoyed both your sessions and gained some great take-aways from your discussions. Thank you so much for inspiring me to be great!

  • Teri Hurley says:

    If you don’t know Alan Berg, you are missing out. How to meet Alan Berg? Take advantage of one of the numerous seminars or consultation opportunities he offers. You’ll be thanking your lucky stars that you did! If I had to use one word to describe my consulting experience it would be Illuminating. However, it’s hard to limit the adjectives when one asks you to describe Alan. Warm, genuine, relatable, smart, funny, knowledgeable – are just a few of the many choices. There’s a moment in his seminars when you just want to jump up and say ‘I get it!’ and you can’t wait to implement what you have learned. I am looking forward to Alan returning to South Texas. I plan to be the first in line for his next session. Thank you Alan, I will never look at a website the same way again.

    • Alan says:

      Thanks, Teri. It was great meeting you and I love how open you are to new ideas. Your attitude, personality and enthusiasm is sure to fuel your success.

  • Chuck Rock says:

    I want to personally thank Alan for all of the help and assistance in getting my business moving in the right direction. Everything in your seminar rang true to me and was very movational. I also enjoyed the networking opportunities and have made friends with other attendees that I now see on a reqular basis. I had Alan review my website and have applied the action items suggested. My website has come alive and is now producing leads exceeding my expectations. Thank you Alan for your knowledge and understanding of the wedding industry and just being a friend.

    • Alan says:

      Thanks, Chuck. I love working with businesses that are so open to ideas and changes to move themselves forward. I’m glad that you’re seeing results so quickly.

  • I always thought I had a great website. That was until I hired Alan Berg to review it. He gave the real world insight I need to get my site up to a much higher level. He knows how brides think and why they leave or stay on websites. What make them take action or just leave and look to your competitor’s sites. If you want a website that REALLY performs contact Alan ASAP. Do it before your competition does!! Alan Berg is the best in the business!!

    • Alan says:

      Thanks, David. Your site already had really good content, it just wasn’t getting seen. Some of your best features were buried under layers of menus and I really like how we pulled it forward into the sidebars. I’m so glad you’re seeing an immediate uptick in response. Response is action and action leads to sales.

  • I know from attending 2 wedding MBA’s that Alan knows the wedding market better than anyone. Even though I have been working really hard on my website Alan’s suggestions are going to help me reach more brides. He went through each page of my website with great suggestions. We are slowly getting the changes made. I look forward to my next consultation with Alan.

  • Adam Tiegs says:

    Our company website has a wealth of information and resources for our target audience. We rank pretty decent organically with our SEO reviews. We did know that there needed to be some changes. After consulting with Alan and going over several pages pointing out more effective ways to get the message across, reducing the amount of content and the suggestions to increase traffic flow we realize that there is more work to be done that anticipated. Slowly the changes are coming through, but already we have incorporated several suggestions only to see a boost in client reviews when asked about their thoughts. Secondly, almost every content suggestion about the website we have adapted into our face-to-face meetings as well and have nothing but positive results. Thanks Alan!

    • Alan says:

      Thanks, Adam. I love proactive business people, like you, who not only ask for ideas, they implement them. There are no positive changes without action and you’re seeing that firsthand. Well done!

  • Sonya Scott says:

    My website was beautiful, but not very effective, so I bit the bullet and purchased a couple of hours of Alan’s time. He went over my website word by word , picture & picture & link by link, suggesting both major changes and tiny tweaks. I’m still in the process of making the changes, but I can already tell a difference in conversion.

    Purchasing two hours of Alan’s time may be the best investment I’ve ever made in my business, and I will definitely do it again.

    • Alan says:

      Thanks, Sonya, I’m so glad that you’re already seeing an increase in conversion. That’s what it’s all about… Action! An action on your part is resulting in more actions on the part of your website’s visitors. Each little incremental change adds up. Thanks for taking the first step and choosing me to work with you on this. Keep me posted on the progress.

  • What can I say? Alan Berg has been a huge asset to our business. He always gives us creative, clear cut insight, advise, and plans of attack, to help keep us on track, motivated, and always stretching to achieve the growth and sales increases we know are possible for our business.

      Thanks, Mike. I always enjoy our time together and I can see and feel the progress. I’m looking forward to bigger things for you and your business.

    Thanks Alan for coming in and reviewing every element of my “system” for operating and for giving me your good advice on each part. This “top to bottom” review of how I’m operating is something that everyone should have. Your style is very workable and your ideas are right on. I could see immediately with you what I wasn’t able to see before you came in. Now we’ll wait and see if all of your good suggestions bring in the business that we both hope and believe that it will.

    I recommend you for any photographer who wants to take their business to the next level.

    • Alan says:

      Thanks, Dave. It was great working with you. I can feel your passion for your art and I hope that you can use my suggestions to help your business move forward.

  • I recently had a consultation over the phone with Alan. I found him very knowledgeable, easy to talk to, and a great listener. He was very hands-on and took his time to teach me the tips that gave my business website a much needed “facelift.” Thanks so much, Alan! I hope I have the chance to meet you in person at any of your conferences or trainings. Be blessed!

      Thanks, Vaness. I’m always happy to work with someone who is so interested in learning and growing their business as you are.

    I have found that Alan’s knowledge and insight in the wedding industry is among the best I have ever heard. We have been using his consulting services for just over 2 months now and have applied over 20 actionable items that have made a significant impact to our business. We are on pace for another record breaking year and I attribute some of that success to the knowledge he provides us.

    • Alan says:

      Thanks, Ryan. It’s a pleasure to work with you and your organization.

    • Steve says:

      Your outlook and perspective on the operation always make a tremendous
      > impact not only our sales but the motivation of our TEAM.

      • Alan says:

        Thanks, Steve. It’s great to work with such a proactive organization. I love your comment at the meeting that the bar has been set low, but you’re raising it even higher, regardless of what others are doing.
