Upselling in the New Year

We kicked off 2020 with Phenix Banquet Center, who graciously provided us with a delicious full dinner! Our speakers this month were Amber Waters with the OSU Faculty Club, Andrea Schulte with All Occasions Party Rental and Randy Laipply with Connie Duglin Linen, discussing upselling to enhance your clients’ events and beef up your bottom line. Lots of great tips were shared,, like:

  • Upselling helps your clients customize their events and create a memorable experience for their guests.
  • As the expert, you can guide your clients on what will make their event look it’s absolute best, which reflects on YOU.
  • COMMUNICATE with vendors and clients to ensure all details and timelines are correct.
  • Check with venues to see what they provide and upsell from there.
  • DON’T sell to yourself! Even if your upsell is something that you may not personally like, if it fits your client’s style and budget, go for it!
