I know we all agree that the mission behind the Book More Weddings Summit is a great one – attract more of your ideal clients and book more weddings so you can be more profitable and grow your wedding business. But I’m here to remind you that unless you have a plan to put what you learn into action, absolutely nothing will change.
I know I’ve been guilty of going to great presentations or signing up for courses, taking a ton of notes, feeling inspired, and then…nothing. I don’t want you to do that.
So today I want to touch on the process I recommend you take to get the most out of what you’ll learn within the Wedding Pro Power Pack.
Start with a list
First, make a list of the pieces of your business or areas of your marketing you’re going to improve based on the presentations you plan to watch and bonuses you plan to grab. For example, if you view the presentation on networking and that’s something you want to do, write it down.
Now you have a starting point.
Next, take the pieces in your list and put them in order of either what’s most important to you, what will make the biggest impact, or what you’re most excited about.
Some people would say to always start with what will make the most impact, but I’m one who prefers to work where my motivation is, so I’ll leave that choice up to you!
Break it down
Now, based on the presentation content and the notes you take on your worksheets, break each item of your list down into small action steps.
Going off of our networking example, you’ll want tasks to do things like: gather information on the networking events available to you, decide which ones you’ll attend, decide how you’ll use social media to continue those relationships, etc.
Each action step should be small enough for you to complete quickly and something that can’t be broken down into smaller tasks.
Add due dates
And most importantly, give yourself due dates for each task. Be realistic, based on your current workload and life outside of work. If you’re anything like me, it’s tempting to try to squeeze everything in as soon as possible, but the goal here isn’t to overwhelm yourself.
Even if you just check off one item on your main list per month (a couple of smaller tasks per week), you’re making progress towards attracting more ideal clients and booking more weddings and you’ll see it start to pay off.
When it comes to giving myself due dates and tracking projects, I personally use ClickUp, but I know a lot of people love Asana or even use a Google Calendar. Do what works best for you, as long as it keeps you on track and helps you move forward.
Get to work!
I hope this process will work as well for you as it does for me. It’s simple, but it’s so helpful to look at small tasks that are easy to complete that have actual due dates on them. Then things get moved out of the “do this someday” list and actually start happening.
Now, go dive into those amazing presentations and resources! 🙂
