"I met Shea and Cheryl when Margot Blair Floral was about a year and a half old. I was inexperienced in this world of business and I knew much more about following my dreams than I did about getting clients. I don't know if this was apparent to everybody or if it was just to the well trained eyes of the business savvy Bailey's, but whatever the case, they saw the potential of what my business could be and took it upon themselves to help me get there.
Together we totally revamped my website and marketing campaigns, my pricing, my target market, everything. And in under a year, my business went from a hobby where I had to work three other jobs to support myself, to being my sole source of income...with employees!
The old adage about teaching a man how to fish certainly rings true here.
This wasn't just a one time surge of business that I don't know how to maintain. But instead, with the insight that they taught me, I now know how to think like a business person and Margot Blair Floral only continues to grow. I even have other people remark on my business know-how and asking me for advice. It still makes me laugh every time, but of course I tell them where I learned everything I know and I send them right over to Wedding Industry Rescue, which is the exact same advice I would give to you."
"I met Cheryl and Shea while working at a wedding so I knew their wedding planning skills were amazing and then I learned about Wedding Industry Rescue--I was in love.
I enjoyed reading the advice and then realized--I need them. I met with Cheryl and laid out my issues regarding getting a sort of stalled business up and running smoothly. She immediately pulled up my website and went through each item step by step ---providing data and statistics for why she was telling me what changes I should make. This continued from my online presence, to my pricing, to even my networking.
I knew that I needed help but I was not expecting to walk out of the meeting so energized and excited about my business again. I highly recommend using them because it is easy to find designers, SEO etc but finding it all in one package that understands our industry is nearly impossible."
"Thank you for taking the time to talk with me yesterday. I thoroughly
enjoyed the call.
In 25 minutes, I took down 4 pages of notes! Thanks to you I have 7 solid, workable ways to upgrade and drive traffic to my website, and three new ways of networking that I had not tried.
In fact, I got more out of that 25 minute call than I did from two marketing courses that I purchased, costing me in excess of $600. Your tips were easy to follow, logical, and MOST importantly, up to date."
"Most of the wedding business-related coaching programs I'd been researching sounded gimmicky and some even used "pay now or never, ever be invited to our program again" scare tactics. I was searching in every direction but didn't know which was the real deal.
Then I saw your offer. A 25-minute phone call with a successful business
comrade. No gimmicks. No tactics. No obligation. Just a real connection. It was like the sun began breaking through the fog.
The advice was spot-on and I left our call feeling encouraged and with a
clear direction. You guys were friendly, patient and genuinely interested
in my success. I really can't thank you enough!"
"Within that short time frame of speaking with you, I received valuable information that will help my business succeed in 2014.
Your marketing suggestions made me realize that I need to take on a new approach in targeting the ideal bride for my company.
I greatly appreciate your sincere concern and time given to coaching wedding planners to reach their business goals."
"Cheryl and Shea offered me great advice for developing my event business—not event businesses in general, but MY brand and business.
They were nice yet honest, and really, what more could you ask for?
I heard what I needed to hear and had fun doing it, so quit stalling and contact them, already!"
"Cheryl and Shea reached out to ask me what improvements I wanted to make in my business.
They listened to me as I talked about my challenges and made me feel like I was not alone!
It was refreshing to hear open and honest feedback about their experiences and how much they echoed my own.
Thank you for your time and letting me bend your ears!"
"I gained valuable information from you and Cheryl. I really appreciated the information you both shared with me regarding my business. I have started making connections with the referral Cheryl gave me. I really didn't believe at first you guys would call.
After speaking with both of you I can tell that you both are passionate about your business & you are offering a way to help others come up to where you are in business & that says a lot about your character.
I look forward to sharing & working with you in the future.
Thanks again for your time & valuable information."
I originally met Shea and Cheryl at a bridal function for vendors, where they spoke on ways to improve your website. I immediately knew that they would provide me with a wealth of knowledge about the industry and give me clear, concise directions on where to go. My background is in healthcare, so I never had to work for my clients before. Now I needed a crash course in marketing, and Shea and Cheryl would help me with that! They said that many wedding professionals are quite creative, but do such a poor job at marketing / running their business that they miss out on opportunities.
Because my type of service is for the affluent, I knew who my potential clients were, but not how to find them and keep them with my website, marketing materials, etc. No one else in my area offers what I do, so I didn't even know where to realistically begin with pricing. WIR has worked extensively for that type of client, so they possess an vast knowledge on how to attract and keep that client. I took copious notes during our one hour session, and over a month later I am still checking back over my notes to "finish" doing everything they suggested. They recommended certain books for me to read which have been immensely constructive, major and minor changes to my website, how to market my very unique service, and how to give excellent service on the back end to get referrals and repeat customers.
I paid for one hour, and they were both overflowing with ideas so they stayed longer with me to make sure I got down enough good information. That is the kind of service I want from a business mentor - one who keeps his word but also is most concerned about my success. I now am much more confident about where I am headed. As soon as I finish with the list of things they gave me, I can't wait to go back and have another session, so I can continue growing my business. Thank you, Cheryl and Shea!
You made it this far.
