Will this system work for my bridal store?
Business Coaching for Bridal Shops
“We started getting more calls and more calls.”
My name is Jennifer Thompson and my business is Facchianos Bridal and Formal Attire. I’m originally from Bronx, New York. Went to college for fashion design and I also worked in New York City in fashion design. Even if you’ve worked in the business, you don’t know everything about the business, because when you get into the business there’s a whole lot of challenges and the first thing is the actual running of the business. You have to wear a lot of hats. So you have to know about marketing. You have to be a seller. You have to be the person who hires people. There are so many different things that you have to know and do and I don’t think people know that in the very beginning. You think you’re going to be the boss and everything. Oh, I’m going to just be able to tell people what to do and then I’m going to be able to go out and … no. You’re working more than you’ve ever worked.
The main thing I can notice right off the bat with the training in the business coaching for bridal shops that I am a part of is that it’s helped with the hiring process, how to motivate people. And really the most important to me I think was learning how to do a website. Learning how to put a website together, learning how to optimize the website, learning how to blog, learning social media because we had an old school website and I think we got maybe 50 hits a month.
And then once we improved our website as part of the business coaching for bridal shops program from Thrive, our optimization we started getting more calls and more calls. And I mean, I think our highest number so far has been up in 3000s and I think that gets more phone calls, more people walking in the door. Obviously more customers to us that we can speak with and sell our product. I believe that the training that you get here is probably going to be the best money spent. You could go take courses, you could read books on these things. You could learn a lot that way or you could do it right here all in one place and save yourself a lot of time and money. So you don’t know anything in the beginning when you start a business and you really need to know as much as you possibly can to make your business thrive.
