Aisle Planner is the show sponsor for a reason. I find it to be an invaluable tool. One that I think you should use as well.
WHY SHOULD I USE AISLE PLANNER?
Part of the purpose of this podcast is to have more educated weddings in the world. I want brides and grooms and vendors alike to feel more confident and realistic in their expectations and their plans, and then I want them to hire me to execute it all. AHAHAHAA.
But really, a big part of that recipe is you the WEDDING VENDOR. I want you to be better at your life because if you are a better wedding planner than the collective idea of what a wedding planner does will be elevated, as the saying goes, "A rising tide lifts all boats". And if you're not a wedding planner you can still use Aisle Planner and be better for it.
And since I mentioned Rising Tide - - Society - - if you are in the Twin Cities area feel free to join me at the next Tuesday's Together St. Paul chapter. I'd honestly love to see you there and it's the best way for you to snag some face time with yours truly. Because I'm soOoo popular (being sarcastic, I swear.).
WHAT IS THE BEST PART OF AISLE PLANNER?
The fact that there are templates and that all the things I want to remember are set in the checklist so that I can be reminded.
I also love that my clients love it. That it is helpful to them and, regardless of how organized or not they are, I am.
IS IT DIFFICULT TO GET STARTED?
I opted into Aisle Planner during my slow season, in Minnesota that's winter, and it was fairly seamless. I created a short email sequence and a few on boarding videos to help my clients get acquainted with it. I have found, that if I take the time to enter in the vendors they've told me about, the timeline they have thus far and check off the tasks that they've already accomplished, then I feel like they use it more and get more out of it.
This might just be because I am anal and I like when things get checked off.
OTHER BENEFITS OF AISLE PLANNER?
There's a whole community for it. Including updates, often, via email, and helpful everything wedding planning. There's also videos and webinars. And the thing is, you can do practically everything for your business with Aisle Planner: invoicing, contracts, payment, lead generation, design, etc.
Woo hoo for one stop shopping.
