(Arch design inspired by Sue Bowler)In December 2013, two of my corporate events were in the same venue; one on Friday, the other Saturday. We installed Organza to the ceiling that stayed the same for both events, but changed out the balloon decor and centerpieces to make the events different. Both clients had booked us a year in advance, so I knew their dates were back to back as I met with them and offered several selections to both clients using the same colors. To learn more about installing fabric decor, follow this link balloondvds.com for my step by step DVD’s Fundamentals of Fabric Here is how I stay so busy at the holidays: 1. In December, when I do the events, I have the clients book for the following year to ensure availability for their date. 2. Contact the client in July with suggestions for this year’s designs and have them pay their deposit so their specialty designs can be ordered before they are out of stock. I keep all the product for that event boxed up with the company name and date of the event. 3. Approach new Holiday clients via phone, networking meetings, email and online marketing. 4. Offer fabric draping, backdrops and custom centerpieces that accent the balloon decor. If you stay busy enough with balloons alone or have other vendors in your area that offer fabric decor services, team up with those vendors so you can work together on events. 5. Provide excellent customer service. Want support in increasing your sales? Check out the coaching packages listed in last week’s blog BalloonCoach.com Open for Business.

Greetings from FLOAT 2015 in Chilly St. Louis Missouri!
My Mother, Terry and I arrived in St. Louis on Friday morning and jumped into “find the boxes mode” to locate promotional materials we had send to the convention.
It’s been great to see FLOAT Family members new and old and start answering the question, “What is BalloonCoach.com?”
BalloonCoach.com is a new resource for the balloon industry, to help you Inflate Your Profits!
Please know that the website is Brand NEW and will have many more features over time.
Main services currently offered is Personalized business coaching, from someone who has owned their own balloon decor company for 11 years. I know what it’s like to be in the trenches of wearing all the hats, and not sure what to do first to increase sales volumes and how to get everything done at once! I have had the wonderful blessing of networking with some of the industries most successful companies, and putting many of those business practices to work to see my sales increase each year.
HOW will I have time to Coach? As of January 1st, 2015 I became the Marketing Director of Party People Celebration Co, now excited to coach Johnathon Gerber as the new owner of the company! I am excited to see my dreams become reality to cheer on other balloon professionals to success! Looking forward to this new exciting adventure!
Through coaching I will first find out about You, Your Business, and Your Goals for the future.
We will then make a strategic plan to reach those goals, and I’ll provide support and resources to cheer you towards success!
I’m available to be your long term coaching or work with you a month or two, based on your business needs.
We will create a private online BalloonCoach.com Community to support each other and learn from each other.
Ever been on a job and had something come up and not sure how to problem solve the situation? As a Coaching client you will have access to me during those crazy situations to help you.
Much more information to come next week! For those of you at FLOAT 2015 look forward to seeing you in the Vendor room on Tuesday and Wednesday!
