Pop-Up Event Workshop

Top Down Selling for a Better Bottom Line

When it comes to running your business, it’s better to work smarter, not harder. This attitude doesn’t just apply to your services – it also applies to your sales process! In this presentation Alan will show you how to leverage top down selling opportunities to help boost your bottom line.

Come to this season and learn:

  •          How to re-structure your packages/offerings to sell more
  •          How to assess and reduce the opportunity cost for your business
  •          How to stop leaving money on the table with your clients
  •          How to make more money from the same number of events

 

Shut Up, and Sell More Events!

You’ll always know more about your products and services than your customers, but not everyone needs to hear it all. In this presentation, based on his new book “Shut Up and Sell More Weddings & Evetns”, Alan will show you how to ask better questions, and really listen to the answers, which will help you sell more in less time. Sound good?

Here’s what you’ll learn:

  •          What kinds of questions to ask, and when
  •          The difference between hearing and listening
  •          How your customer can sell themselves
