With over 25+ years of combined experience, we wanted to lay it all out for you in a handbook that is easy to come back to, time and time again. So we did just that. This is the entire system to build the business of your dreams
We boiled it down to 10 steps for you to run a successful business. From setting up the brand, all the way to getting those $10,000+ referrals. It is all in The Course
We walk you through how to legally set up your business, and make sure the foundation is solid, so you don't have to come back later on and fix your mistakes. Trust us, you want to do this step right.
We help you determine your mission, vision, and most importantly, we help you to see who your ideal buyer is, so you can focus all of your attention on attracting the dream couple.
We waste a ton of time fielding calls for couples we don't want to work with. Let us show you how to attract and repel in your business. We help you SCREAM to the ideal buyer, and make it easily known who you want to work with.
When you lay out a solid plan, you will start to get the right couples to reach out. In this module, we walk you through how to get them to say yes. From setting up the proper prices and collections, to making sure your inquiry form is just right, and walking you through discovery calls and proposals, it is all here for you to be focused, and book more of the right couples.
Don't ghost your couples. The time period between booking, and the wedding day is crucial to giving them an experience like none other. Learn their story, which helps you tell a better story on the day. Build trust, and show them even more ways you can serve them as they plan (which results in more sales).
Blow the entire family, and the vendor team away with proven shooting techniques, as well as a heavy focus on how you are representing your brand on the day. Show people why you are worth what you are charging.
When you are working with ideal buyers, and you know them well, you can create one-of-a-kind wedding films. Not only will this invigorate you, but will set you apart as better than the competition.
Most wedding videographers film the wedding, ghost the couple, then send an email when the wedding is done being edited. In this course we show you how to not only build anticipation, but deliver an incredible experience as your couples wait for the film to be edited
If you deliver an incredible experience to not on the couple and their family, but the full vendor team, you are going to stay at the top of their minds when thinking of who they want to refer later in time. We show you how to take your delivery to the next level.
This entire system is about cycling upward in business. Each year, we work with more ideal buyers, which causes a chain reaction. More of our ideal buyers are exposed to our work, which causes more wedding clients to see the value you bring. This causes you to make even better work, and create even more relationships. After step 10, you circle back to step 2 and do it all over again.
Lay a solid foundation, so your business can grow
Help you determine who your 'heck yes' customers are, and how to attract them
Show you how to price yourself properly, and build out a funnel
Walk you through getting inquiries, discovery calls, and building proposals that sell
Show you how to get couples to say YES to you
Walk your couples through the planning process, giving them a great experience
Blow them away with your shooting and editing
Cycle upward by reaching more of your ideal couples after each wedding
