Excellent Customer Service is something we all want to provide. We want our clients to be happy with us.  We want them to recommend us and ultimately, it does say we are doing "it" right. In this post, we will explore how to lay out some ground rules to follow to help you be consistent in your goal to provide excellent customer service.

Developing a Winning Customer Service Policy

Sounds like a great idea right? Well, what if, it isn't as easy as it seems?  In fact, in this business, it often feels impossible to apply the same principles of excellent customer service to each client. Some of my clients are so busy they don't want to be bothered and on the other hand, I have some clients who now see me as their best friend and want to text me at midnight when they are searching through ideas they find on Pinterest.  The truth is, I love creating systems, policies, and streamlining the way we run our business.  I would love nothing more than to develop a...

Don’t ask friends and family

Inspiration Shoots: Worth the Investment?

Most wedding pros have their opinions about inspiration shoots, typically based on their own experiences in the past. However, with industry publications increasingly prioritizing real weddings (even to the point of refusing shoot submissions), the big question is: What makes a styled shoot worthwhile?

The short answer is that shoots can certainly provide value to your business. However, it has to be carefully planned for success; styled shoots done on a whim are rarely advantageous.
