  • I quoted our highest prices yet...and he immediately accepted

    Yesterday, I went through the Quick Wins and got the changes going on my inquiry form. Within an hour I had two inquiries come in who scheduled phone consults. One of the consults is pretty much closed, they scheduled a follow up consult tomorrow to finalize. The other consult is next week. Did I mention that I quoted our highest prices yet to one of those consults and he immediately accepted? OK, enough gloating!!!

  • Booked 4 out of 4 consults...at DOUBLE the price

    I just feel like I have lots of pieces in place now. We have had four consultations since I started your program for our new asking price. Every one of them has signed a contract! On top of that, they signed on a contract for DOUBLE THE PRICE with the knowledge that their album could cost them another 40-85% (depending on how many spreads are in the album). It would have taken us 8 weddings to match the income we're going to get off JUST THE WEDDING DAY for these 4. That doesn't even count potential album sales. Needless to say, we're excited!

  • I hate to think about all the missed opportunities I've had over the last few years because of a generic email response

    I'm so thankful for everything I learned working with you and all your feedback and advice. I know my website is so much stronger now. More importantly, I feel like my inquiry response is solid and I feel more confident during consults having a script. The lack of responses from email inquiries was something I was struggling with, and I feel now like if I don't hear back from someone, it's because they just aren't a quality lead and not because they just glanced at a generic email and pricing guide and moved on! I hate to think about all the missed opportunities I've had over the last few years because of a generic email response. Thank you so much. I'm so thankful that I found you and that I decided to join the program!

  • Our bookings are WAY up, our revenue per booking is WAY up (July saw a 500% increase year over year), and most of our wedding clients book within a few hours of meeting with us. Kathy’s the real deal, and has paid for herself MANY TIMES OVER since I started learning from her.

    "In just one week of working with you I already have my first booking and they closed on the SAME DAY. All I did was follow the guidance you gave me as best I could.


    Kathy, I hate being wrong. HATE it. Perfectionists aren't supposed to be wrong. My inner perfectionist secretly wanted to come out on the other side of this experience able to say "not worth it." I was doing it right all along, and this confirms it." But I was WRONG, Kathy. SO SO WRONG.

    I can't thank you enough for your help. Even in these early stages, you have radically reshaped my conversations with brides, and the way I think about sales. I really believe this month together will be foundational to the future of my business.

    2 Weeks Update

    It's working. IT's REALLY WORKING!!! In the past 48 hours, I've had 5 calls with brides (better wording on website after overhauling language has already increased inquiries!). Of those 5, FOUR booked already, the 5th is eager to do so soon AND I landed a massive corporate project!!! MIND. BLOWN. THANK YOU!

    5 Weeks Update

    Just wanted to update you on my WeddingWire inquiry response process (I'd told you I got 2 quick responses using the *strategy*)

    Before the change, I had something like 85 inquiries the previous year, 10 that even responded to my initial response, and 4 of those led to consults (all 4 booked… about a 5% success rate).

    Since changing based on your material, I've sent out probably a dozen more responses after those first 2, and I believe 6 or 7 of those 12 have set up calls… that's 8 or 9 out of 14... MASSIVE uptick in WeddingWire usefulness! 4 of those have already booked! My WeddingWire leads booking rate went from 5% to 28.5% in about a month!"

    3 Months Update

    Friday night I had my largest single-call investment from a couple. At the end of the call, the bride literally asks me “were you some sort of sales major in college? Because I’m in digital sales and marketing and everything you took us through from your website, to your emails, to this call is exactly the kind of process we use in our business! 😂

    By lunchtime the next day, she and her fiancé booked $9000 in services with us for their 2019 wedding!

    4 Months Update

    We’re now 4 for 5 on these calls in the past week - and the 5th I knew wasn’t likely to book about halfway through the call. Four months in and starting to find a rhythm that really works for me! Your course has paid for itself multiple times over!!! Also...my 2nd call...Booked on the call...we’re going to the Grand Canyon for their engagement session… THE Grand Canyon!!!

    I was invited to attend an open house this week at a venue that has us on their preferred vendor list. When we attended their January open house, I walked away with a dozen or so emails, and got exactly ZERO bookings out of them. This time I used the techniques you taught us for getting appointments out of bridal shows, and walked away with ELEVEN Fun Calls scheduled! I felt like a minimum of 3 of them would be a great fit!

    We’ve seen an increase from about 2% of our monthly traffic setting up a Fun Call to about 10%, due to the changes you taught us to make to our website. Of that 10% that set up a call, about 35-40% are booking, due to the scripts and closing techniques you gave us for our calls. We’ve also been able to raise our pricing about 25% overall. In reviewing my google analytics with a guy in our office, we found that in the 3 months since starting your course, our numbers have equalled or been slightly up from the previous 3 months. To me, that’s a HUGE win, as the previous 3 months were the Dec/Jan/Feb engagement season, where we see our biggest traffic each year. To see that momentum maintained across March/April/May is a significant step forward for us!

    Kathy has helped me transform my business since we met this past spring. Our bookings are WAY up, our revenue per booking is WAY up (July saw a 500% increase year over year), and most of our wedding clients book within a few hours of meeting with us. Kathy’s the real deal, and has paid for herself MANY TIMES OVER since I started learning from her.

  • It's only been a week...and I've gone from booking 1 in 5 to 1 in 3

    "It's only been a week since working with you and I've gone from booking 1 event in every 5 tours to closing 1 event in every 3 tours! I just followed your lead to stop pushing out information to our prospects and start focusing on the bigger picture instead. I'm feeling less burned out already!"

    It's only been a week since working with you and I've gone from booking 1 event in every 5 tours to closing 1 event in every 3 tours! I just followed your lead to stop pushing out information to our prospects and start focusing on the bigger picture instead. I'm feeling less burned out already!

    One month later and I'm still seeing results. I just held 3 tours this week and 2 of them booked within 3 days! I can't believe it. All I did was apply the strategy we created and it worked! Other clients have taken as long as 6 months to close, so I could definitely get used to this.

    Before I started working with Bride Appeal I had intentions I wanted to communicate to potential clients, but the process has taught me how to actually REACH those clients in a tangible way that made them want to book on the spot. My most recent tour on Monday left my office and all six of them (couple and both sets of parents) were back within minutes to sign. From the end of the tour to after the signing the bride was so happy with me that she insisted on hugging me twice and her dad shook my hand with a heartfelt thanks. I told them we are going to have such fun together. Now that is the way to end a tour! Already, I was able to establish great trust. I love your entire approach and how you pull it all together for me.

  • It's only been 1 week and I've already booked a client!

    It's only been 1 week and I've already booked a client! You're right, I was giving away too many details on my website and putting their focus on all the wrong things. No wonder everyone was asking about prices. After overhauling my service webpages, tweaking my email response and changing my tune in the consultation, the bride was pretty much sold before I even made an offer. Can't wait to do it again!

    Then, after another 2 weeks of applying your strategies, I sold one of my top packages twice! What's crazy is that, up until now, I've only sold that package once ever. This experience has already paid for itself and I'm just getting started!

  • OMG, SHE BOOKED!!!

    I met with my team and showed them your copywriting for our website, and none of us could believe how you captured exactly what we are trying to accomplish!! And quite honestly, the copy you wrote - how someone from the 'outside' took all that I was trying to say - allowed me to get my confidence back up!

    I met with my team and showed them your copywriting for our website, and none of us could believe how you captured exactly what we are trying to accomplish!! We all raved about it. How were you able to communicate my story and value so well after just a few sessions together?! And quite honestly, the copy you wrote - how someone from the 'outside' took all that I was trying to say - allowed me to get my confidence back up!

    And, OMG, Kathy, after meeting with the Mother of the Bride over the phone and following the exact steps you gave me for running my consultation, the bride personally called me back, said that her mother told her that I was the "best" so far that she'd spoken to, really liked our philosophy etc. and then asked if I'd take a credit card # over the phone!!!! I really did not think I'd get a fast booking with your strategy because the bride was not local and in med school...but she called just a couple hours after the consult!

    I am in complete shock, I have NEVER closed someone 'on the spot' over the phone. Your model for exactly what to say and not say in the meeting, instead of just spewing out details of my services, and your approach for getting a quick decision WORKED!!!!!!!!!!! I mean I got off the phone with you and not even 4 hours later, I have a $500 deposit!!! HOW DOES THIS HAPPEN!?? You know your stuff, girl!! I'm so excited to keep this going, can't wait to finish up!!

    Thanks!!! :)

  • I've already doubled my investment!

    So I booked the client last night after our first session together using the method you taught me. They put down a deposit to hold the date and will be getting back to me with which package they want. That was the first time I booked a package and took a deposit on the spot! We've only had one consult together and already I'll be getting nearly all of my investment back. U rock Kathy!!

    2 Weeks Later: Good news is that I booked a package this weekend with a bride who originally wanted a lower day of coordination package but took my higher package. I followed all your methods for closing the sale during the meeting. Results - SCORE! I booked her on the spot and instead of booking a $1300 package I sold a $3000 one. Sweeeeeeeeeet. Also I booked another other client I was waiting to hear back from. Her parents were paying for the services and they were all the way in India, but I still closed within the week!!! 

    It’s been 2 months since I started working with you and I’ve already doubled my investment!

  • I used her sales method to book 4 out of 6 consultations and half of them closed on the spot

    After just the first 2 meetings with Kathy, I used her sales method to book 4 out of 6 consultations and half of them closed on the spot. What was even more exciting is that 3 of these clients spent 70% more than my previous average sale amount! Before price was often a concern, but now I'm able to show why I'm worth it! The conversation was so easy and I could just be myself. My confidence is so much higher than it used to be.

  • I just wrapped up booking 6 new weddings in a row in just 3 days, all ideal brides, totaling over $20,000 in new revenue. That's pretty awesome for return on investment.

    I know marketing, but SEO is a whole different ball game. Luckily, I have Kathy in my back pocket. She keeps it simple so non-technical people can understand and gives me shortcuts that make it easy.

    Whenever anyone asks me who to call for SEO, I don't hesitate: Kathy is your girl! After talking with Kathy about some much-needed changes for my SEO plan and following her instructions to the letter, the flood gates opened in new, targeted bridal leads! I just wrapped up booking 6 new weddings in a row in just 3 days, all ideal brides, totaling over $20,000 in new revenue. That's pretty awesome for return on investment .... time, money and energy! :) I highly recommend Kathy - you can't NOT afford her!"

  • Before it was even over, I closed the biggest sale in my business worth $6000.

    I finally had enough of not making any progress and decided to take the leap. After going through her program, I have to say it was the best investment I have ever made! I actually just had a bride sign up for my newsletter, get it for a few weeks, completely trust me, schedule a consult, and then booked on the spot at my higher full service price! I have booked 3 total brides at my new higher price and an additional partial service bride, which I am actually trying to push more. So I’m doing good.

    There are not enough words to describe how wonderful Kathy is! I had heard about Kathy and Bride Appeal from a local planning resource. After looking into her more, I was immediately interested in her services and systems. I was a bit worried about the investment since I have never invested money into mentoring before. I had researched other mentor programs and myself was in “information gathering mode” for a very long time. I finally had enough of not making any progress and decided to take the leap. After going through her program, I have to say it was the best investment I have ever made!

    Her strategies were so informative and detailed. It wasn’t all fluff about believing in yourself, but actual steps and examples of how to put concrete actions into place. I feel like for the first time I have a real understanding of who my target audience is and where to find them. But it is more than that! Selling has always been a challenge for me, and through her methods, I learned the way to sell to brides so they stop price comparing and see the value in what I can do for them.

    Her website critique and copy writing skills are truly amazing! After our mentoring sessions were complete, I put into place the things I learn, then she went through my entire website, helping me arrange pages, layout, and copy so my website can do the pre-selling for me. It was so refreshing to have a professional, who understands the wedding market, review my website and put tangible changes on my site to help make my consultations easier. I just finished and, before it was even over, I closed the biggest sale in my business worth $6000.

    If you are on the fence about hiring Kathy, don’t stay there any longer! Her services have given me the knowledge and confidence to take my business to the next level and completely worth the investment I made. I would highly recommend her services to anyone who is tired of going at it alone. She will truly make a difference for you as she has done for me!

    3 Month Update: I actually just had a bride sign up for my newsletter, get it for a few weeks, completely trust me, schedule a consult, and then booked on the spot at my higher full service price! I have booked 3 total brides at my new higher price and an additional partial service bride, which I am actually trying to push more. So I’m doing good. I’m still improving on my selling, but feeling much more confident!

  • I booked a top package and didn't even have to sell her on it!

    Before I met you, I had rough ideas of what to work on in my website, but not any specific guidance for my business. After you helped me with my messaging, I used it at a bridal show and immediately got a booking from a bride who identified with everything I was saying. Usually the inquiries I get try to low ball me, but this time I booked a top package and didn't even have to sell her on it!

    Kathy, you gave me the kick in the pants that I needed to make some big changes in my website. It's one thing to talk and dream, but when you're actually putting money on the table and investing in the business, it motivates you.

    Before I met you, I had rough ideas of what to work on in my website, but not any specific guidance for my business. Now after working with you, I have a much better idea of what my business is about. It has much more of an identity than when I started.

    I also noticed that ever since I updated my website with all your suggestions, I'm not getting the "What is your pricing?" question anymore. Now I have a clear way to connect with people and there is no doubt this new messaging and the changes to my website are getting me better quality leads.

  • In the last 3 weeks since our first session, I've closed 7 out of 8 prospects!

    Before I met you, my closing rate was dreadful. I was only closing maybe 1 in every 5-6 people I met with. However, in the last 3 weeks since our very first session, I've closed 7 out of 8 prospects by modeling your sales technique!

    When I finished our first call, I had a meeting the next day and I modeled your exact process. They closed within a few hours and I thought, "ok, this is interesting," so I tried it again and again and again until I had 7 bookings in just 3 weeks.

    First of all, to even get to me, I changed my email response to them immediately because you told me I was giving away too much information, so I scaled that back. Then, I had read up on a previous blog post you wrote about hooking onto something they said to make my email more personal. So I did that to get them to the meeting stage and suddenly I had 8 meetings!

    Then, once I got them to the meeting stage, I used your sales technique in how to actually talk to the prospect and, from those 8 appointments, I closed 7. It was nuts! And the best part was that not one of them asked for any money off or any reduction in price. I told them my price and that was it, they agreed!

    We've only had 1 session and I've already recovered my full investment. I can't wait to see what else is in store!

    6 Month Update: Since implementing Kathy's sales techniques, my bookings have gone up 50%. I never thought I would say this, but I now look forward to my sales meetings with potential new clients. Kathy has helped me build my sales process from the ground up, and I feel very comfortable knowing that I am not just using empty tactics to coerce my clients into buying from me. They now buy, because they really want to use my services. Thanks to Kathy, they see the value in what I can do for them and they are willing to pay the full price for it. To put it into numbers, I now close on average 4 out of 5 sales meetings compared to 2 out of 5 before working with Kathy. I now feel more in control of my business and am looking forward to steering it into the future with great confidence in myself and what I have to offer. Thanks Kathy, a million times over!

  • I booked not one but 3 perfect clients since our last talk!

    I booked not one but 3 perfect clients since our last talk! My website is not even finished yet and I already get to work with my ideal clients, I am able to charge what I am worth and enjoy my business more than I could ever imagine is possible. Working with you was the best business decision I ever made.

    Hi Kathy, I just wanted to tell you that I booked not one but 3 perfect clients since our last talk! My website is not even finished yet and I already get to work with my ideal clients, I am able to charge what I am worth and enjoy my business more than I could ever imagine is possible.

    All this thanks to you and mentoring I got from you in the last couple of months. I am finally clear about my brand, I know what services I excel with, I know who my ideal clients is and last but not the least I love sale calls! Just because I finally know how to communicate values and benefits of working together to my clients and each call ends up with closed sale for high end program and new fabulous client!

    Before we started working together I was completely stuck with my website, had no idea who my ideal client is and what sets me apart from my competition. I knew I needed a change but I could not figure out on my own any of these issues. I especially didn't know how to communicate all this through my website, how can a website be much more than just brochure and actually do the work for me. Every session with you is a new "aha" moment. I am so impressed with how much you understand my business and how any amazing ideas and solutions you gave me so far, that just blows me away. Working with you was the best business decision I ever made and I can't wait to finish my new website. Though I must admit I'll miss my coaching sessions. :)

    Outcome of working with you goes far beyond amazing new website. Thank you!

    Update after Martina expanded to serving 2 more countries: I just wanted to express gratitude for all work you've done for me and my business in the past 5 years. You helped grow my business tremendously and I would have never came this far (or stayed in it all) without your help. Thank you with all my heart.

  • Within just one month...not only were my number of inquiries up, but I was attracting my dream clients!

    I knew what I wanted for a look, but Kathy showed me what I needed to build my business. Working with Kathy and her team was amazing! We took my basic ideas, and developed them to be a website beyond what I ever imagined. She made me think through how people would use my site, what actions I wanted them to take, and helped me realize that just making it pretty won't bring in the right business. We were very deliberate in every detail we designed. It was completely worth every penny!

    I had always done my own web design, not well, but I did it. When it came time to update my website I knew what I wanted, and knew that I didn't know how to make it happen. I spent hours trying to figure out how to get the look and feel I wanted from various templates I found online. Sitting there, literally in tears after hours of searching for something that would work and getting absolutely nowhere, an email popped up and it was one of Kathy's with her fabulous, knowledgeable info on Search Engine Optimization and Website Design. I set up an appointment immediately.

We were very deliberate in every detail we designed. It was completely worth every penny!

    Within just one month after the new site was up I could tell that it was making a huge impact in my clientele. Not only were my number of inquiries up, but I was attracting my dream clients!

    I also worked on my SEO in one of Kathy's classes, and made sure that I implemented everything I learned. I'm on the first page and moving up in rankings for keywords I never even showed up for.

    Kathy's advice, willingness to share her knowledge, and coaching has made a huge impact in my business, I'm totally swamped in fabulous inquiries and I have her to thank!

  • It's worth the investment and I've already gotten my money back.

    I've taken plenty of other classes and programs through other marketers in the wedding industry, but your approach is nothing like theirs... Others give you what you need to do, but not the how. You give the how... I just finished all the changes to my website you recommended and already in 3 short week my inquiries have spiked because of it…and it's the slow season right now! It's worth the investment and I've already gotten my money back.

    Your guidance has been phenomenal in restructuring and rewriting my website. I mean really, I've learned so much from working with you it's unbelievable.

    One of the first things I learned that really stuck out for me because I have such a big background in retail was when you said your website is like your #1 sales person and it has to be knowledgeable about what you do and help people through the buying process.

    Before I met you, I used to think that the website was just an informational brochure and that the information, in and of itself, would be enough to get people to act. But after mentoring with you, I now understand that if you want visitors to take action you need to guide them in a very specific way.

    The sales process is definitely one of the things that just never occurred to me. This is my third website since I started my business 8 years ago and I never approached it this way before. I used to just want a website that's pretty. But now I clearly see how there is an actual sales process that you apply to your website to get prospects to inquire.

    And it works! I just finished all the changes to my website you recommended and already in 3 short week my inquiries have spiked because of it…and it's the slow season right now! Yet, my website is getting people to call for consultations. It's truly amazing.

    I really can't say enough about working with you. You have helped me make changes that actually make a difference in getting results from prospective clients…I'm actually seeing results. I finally understand now that it is a process that you take people through; that people do need guidance on the steps to take to get to the point where they are ready to speak to you and buy from you. And I have the consultations to prove it works!

    But I'm not just getting more consultations. I'm also seeing more of my target brides coming in; people who are interested in design and who have higher budgets for their wedding for sure. I used to get calls from couples that only had an $8000 budget and only wanted to know "What do you charge?" Now, I don't get any of those people anymore. All the changes to my site have definitely weeded them out.

    I've taken plenty of other classes and programs through other marketers in the wedding industry, but your approach is nothing like theirs. Not only are you very honest and straight-forward about things, you go a lot deeper than anyone I've ever seen before. With others, everything feels like an introduction or basics. Sometimes it just seems like a teaser for having to buy more, but your programs are very thorough. You dive a lot deeper into topics than others have. I filled an entire notebook with all the things I've discovered with you!

    Others give you what you need to do, but not the how. You give the how. You give me real life examples that help me see how it could work specifically for my business. It's nice when you have a formula, but it makes so much more sense when you fill in the blanks and I can actually see what it looks like put together; not to copy it, but so I have a really good idea of what you're talking about so I can actually put it together for myself.

    And the private consultations with you have been phenomenal. They've been so chalked full of information, not a second has been wasted on anything. You really know what you're doing and you really, genuinely want to share that with other people. That's the feeling I get working with you.

    You also have a gift Kathy of being able to connect personally with people, that not everyone has. I had a session with you once when I was nearly in tears, not because of you but because of life being a bit crazy at the time, and you followed up and were so encouraging to me. That really meant a lot to me.

    Most importantly, with your approach and close guidance, I've actually gotten real, measurable results. My business is changing drastically because of mentoring with you. I just can't say that about other programs I've been through.

    I just want you to know that it's been worth it. It's worth the investment and I've already gotten my money back. The way I look at my website and my business will forever be changed by you and I'm so excited to see even more results come in as I continue to implement what I've learned with you. Mentoring with you at a high level was absolutely without a doubt one of the best decisions I've ever made in my business and I only wish I'd started working with you sooner.

  • The majority of my wedding bookings have come directly through my website, thanks to the SEO work.

    Since working with Kathy on my website and SEO work, my business has really taken off. The majority of my wedding bookings have come directly through my website, thanks to the SEO work. Having tried various marketing efforts this year (wedding shows, vendor networking, etc.), by far the SEO work done on my website has been the most beneficial and cost effective. I went from less than 50 visitors per month on my site to 600 per month in just a short few months. And these are new visitors!

    Since working with Kathy on my website and SEO work, my business has really taken off. I cannot stress how important her work has been for me. The majority of my wedding bookings have come directly through my website, thanks to the SEO work.

    I am by no means a savvy web person, but I do understand the importance of my website being found via on-line searches. Kathy researched my market extensively and provided key terms she felt would help my business the most. Then she helped update my website with this information in mind. She also provided me with a list of terms to use to help drive traffic to my site when I blog and post on FB. This is invaluable information, specific to my business.

    My website has moved to page 2 ranking for my best long-term keyword, and this is with on-site SEO only. We are page 1 ranking, 4th position for both of my top 2 most targeted keywords. And page 1 ranking for half a dozen other related keywords in my niche. As I spend more time blogging and using other social media with these key words, my rankings should move even higher.

I went from less than 50 visitors per month on my site to 600 per month in just a short few months. And these are new visitors!

    I cannot recommend Kathy and her team more highly. Her work has really helped make my business successful, with my summer calendar booked solid with weddings. My clients love my website and say I was just what they were looking for. You can't ask for much more then that!

  • I have such a clear vision to confidently articulate what I love to do in a way that fits me to a tee

    Where do I even begin on how to thank Kathy for what she’s done for me as a business owner?? I had many, many “A-Ha Moments” when I devoured her methods, but I really came into my own and learned about myself during my private sessions with her. Now, I have such a clear vision to confidently articulate what I love to do in a way that fits me to a tee. I will forever be grateful to Kathy for giving me the push I needed and the tools I needed to achieve it.

    Where do I even begin on how to thank Kathy for what she’s done for me as a business owner?? I remember my first conversation with her like it was yesterday; it was one of those “tough love” conversations that had me literally in tears. But, in that moment, it was exactly what I needed to hear & feel since I finally felt like I was getting the answers I was searching for. I took the leap of faith that moment to sign on with her and it was the best decision I made and well worth the investment.

    I had many, many “A-Ha Moments” when I devoured her methods, but I really came into my own and learned about myself during my private sessions with her. Now, I have such a clear vision to confidently articulate what I love to do in a way that fits me to a tee. I can identify who my ideal client is, a pricing structure that works for me, invaluable sales information, and services that emphasize my strengths. I will forever be grateful to Kathy for giving me the push I needed and the tools I needed to achieve it.

  • Thank you for everything you have done with my website! I wanted to let you know that with your SEO, I have gone from page whatever down the line somewhere after page 5 to page 1. Not only am I now on page 1, but I'm usually the second company down! Thank you, it would not have happened with your SEO.
