This set of inspirational thoughts for the new year will galvanize you into action.

At the start of every year, I create a list of quotes to guide and inspire me for the next 12 months. Here are the quotes I’ve selected for 2013:

“Success is getting what you want. Happiness is wanting what you get.”
Dale Carnegie

“Obstacles are necessary for success because in selling, as in all careers of importance, victory comes only after many struggles and countless defeats.”

Tony Robbins

“If you can’t control your anger, you are as helpless as a city without walls waiting to be attacked.”
The Book of Proverbs

A mediocre person tells. A good person explains. A superior person demonstrates. A great person inspires others to see for themselves.”

Something Old, Something New, Something Borrowed….

and Something Blue. 

In the wedding business this saying comes from the Victorian Era….but I’ve adapted it for 2013 AND for the professional in the Wedding Business!trumpet-mermaid Wedding Dress

Something Old.…what’s working for you right now that has been around for a long time?  Face to face visits!  I realize that it’s extremely easy to stop having those visits with our customers, however, one of the top wants of a bride and groom planning their wedding is…..a relationship.   Let’s look back: remember when the phone call was easier than setting up a time to meet face to face?  How about when the FAX machine was easier to contact the brides than a phone call…..then it moved to ‘the internet and emailing,’ and now it’s social media (Facebook, Twitter, Tumblr, LinkedIn).  However, the BEST OLD something….to close an actual sale, is to meet with your clients again!

Something New….let me hook you into some ideas that are WORKING!  Have you checked out: WedVu.com to create easy videos that help you in your rankings on line, plus are great advertisements for your company?  How about using PRWeb.com to get your press releases out in the community or PRnewswire.com?  At Evans Sales Solutions, we just started working with a company that helps you create an entire email follow up and follow through system–that will blow your mind!  We’d be happy to share it with you when you contact us for more information!  Email me: Chrisevansint@me.com (and ask for the f/u & f/through system)

Something Borrowed.…OK, this make sense to ‘borrow’ from the huge amount of ‘business background’ that our team brings to you.  Have you read the book, ‘How to Double Your Wedding Business in 12 Months?’  or have you attended a ‘Bridal Business Boot Camp,’ that gives you education to grow your wedding business?  Have you signed up for the FREE newsletter, video or ebook to grow your company through our website?  Do it now….www.EvansSalesSolutions.com  (Register today!)

and Something BLUE.….how about the Ocean?  It’s incredible in Atlantic City!   You are invited to participate in the Bridal Business Academy in May 2013–where you’ll hear from experts in the field of business and the wedding industry!  Sign up early for the discount!  Click here for more information and registration: Bridal Business Academy

The Bridal Industry Today

Here’s a useful snapshot of the bridal world in the U.S.

With the popularity of wedding reality shows on networks like TLC and Style, weddings are in the spotlight more than ever. Here’s a brief overview of bridal stats gathered from theknot.com, Brides Magazine 2012 American Wedding Study, and weddingstats.com:

  • September is the most popular month for weddings; June is second. 20% of couples get engaged in December.
  • The average age of a bride is 27 and the groom is 29.
  • An average guest count is 140 and the length of engagement is fourteen months.
  • Blue, purple, and green are the biggest wedding colors.
  • 69% of couples had there own personal wedding website. 59% of brides used Pinterest to generate and organize wedding ideas.
  • The average cost of an American wedding is $27,000. New York City boasted the largest average cost of more than $65k, and Chicago was second at $53k per wedding.
  • Venue accounts for approximately 50% of a wedding’s budget.
  • The average cost of a bridal gown is $1355, and bridesmaids’ dresses average $145.
  • In this economy–exporting may be the way to expand your products.

To sum it all up, get yourself into Pinterest, focus on September and June themes, look into exporting into China and move to New York! Okay, maybe you should stay put –where you are–and use these stats to make the most of your business. For more great resources on the wedding biz, check out my site: EvansSalesSolutions.com or BridalMarketingConcierge.com

Have a great week, and do a little of your own research on wedding trends. It can only help propel you forward. As I always say, “Knowledge plus implementation equals power.”

Sincerely,

Chris Evans
