sales skills for your business

I came to the wedding industry from a sales background around ten years ago. I discovered what an incredibly talented and creative bunch of people the wedding industry is home to.

Us wedding industry folk tend to be very passionate about about what we do, we love doing it, and we do it because we love it.  Quite often money is not our main motivation for starting our wedding business.

Over the years I have met many business owners who have a great product or service, but they do not know how to sell themselves or how to find their ideal clients. More often than not, they don’t have the confidence to try!

As a sales person in my former life, this aspect of having a business comes very naturally to me.  However the ability to sell is something I have learned, these are skills I have honed over time.  There are techniques and tools that I can teach you to help you sell the amazing business you have and really maximise your revenue and potential.

My Sales Skills Masterclass will teach you:
  • How to be confident to sell yourself and your business.
  • How to find your ideal client.
  • Sales techniques and how to use them.
  • How to close a sale.
  • Face to face sales.
  • Selling on your website and social media.
  • How to sell your product or service at wedding shows or events.
  • How to sell without being salesey!
