What if you could make it easier for your customers to buy, which makes it easier for you to sell? How much time would that save you, and how much more profit could that make your catering company or venue? This session will help you see a different path to selling more weddings and events, at higher profits for you. You'll walk away knowing the answers to these questions:
- Which is better, packages or a-la-carte pricing?
- Should you put pricing on your website?
- Are you maximizing your calendar inventory for profit?
Pricing strategy is more than just setting a price. The key is to maximize your profitability per event. It's not what you make, it's what you keep. In this presentation you will see how to adjust your pricing so that you're taking advantage of your pricing power when you have it (and learning to realize when you do).
