Ever wondered what the point of a ‘wedding ceremony coordinator’ was & if it was worth it?

Circle of Love Wedding Ceremony Coordinators play a very important part in your wedding ceremony weather it be a beach wedding, garden wedding or indoor wedding.

Coordination is the key to ensuring your wedding day flows just as planned! You’ve seen wedding reception coordinators welcome to the new era of wedding ceremony coordinators that will ensure your wedding day is simply perfect in every way.

Our role on the day of your wedding is to ensure:

  • Greeting your guests and kindly directing them to the ceremony a location at the appropriate time
  • Greeting the groom & groomsmen, making sure they are 100% happy with the ceremony styling before the beautiful bride arrives
  • Liaising with the celebrant & photographer & briefing them on anything needed
  • Liaising with musicians or celebrant in regards to music
  • Make certain that the ceremony musicians are cued appropriately to ensure correct pace and timing
  • Finding the flower girls and the ring bearers when it’s time to walk down the aisle and helping them get down the aisle, if a bit shy
  • Round up, line up and cue the beautiful wedding Party when it’s time to walk down the aisle, making sure they feel at ease, are smiling for photos, and paced perfectly.
  • Letting you know when it’s time to walk down the aisle, making sure you are ready for the big moment
  • Making sure your dress and train are perfect and send you on your way down the aisle with your escort
  • Directing your guests to the wedding reception venue after the ceremony

Now what would you do without a ‘Wedding Ceremony Coordinator’?

 

Franchise Vs Independent Business

franchise for sale, franchise for sale in Australia

Australia is truly the land of opportunity. You can start your own business from scratch or choose from thousands of franchises and business opportunities, in practically any field you want.

Franchises and business opportunities are fairly similar, but they do have a few distinct differences, in four key areas:

1. Common Brand and Operating System. One of the tenets of a successful franchise system is that all units operate under a common brand and operating system. This is how a consumer knows a Macdonalds will be the same in Australia then Europe. A franchise system makes a concerted effort to ensure that every operator is doing things the same and every unit is supporting and reinforcing the brand.

In a small business, there’s typically no requirement to operate under a common brand. If you are establishing your business from scratch you build your own brand name, which can take years to establish, and as there is no guidelines you are only working off your knowledge & friends around you. In a franchise system your brand is established from day one & known through word of mouth, social media, suppliers, venues & other resources.

 

2. Ongoing Support. A franchise typically has an ongoing commitment to support you over your entire tenure in the business. These support programs usually involve structured periodic contacts with dedicated support personnel for marketing, staff training, technology and virtually any other aspect of ongoing operations.

Though a biz opp may also offer you ongoing support, the process is usually very informal and not based on any contractual commitment.

 

3. Operating systems. Would you rather invent the wheel, or buy one ready-made? If you’re the creative, innovative type, starting your own business is the way to go. A franchised business provides a complete, out-of-the-box business, ready to “plug and play.” You have to follow the operating manual. If you can’t, fly solo.

 

4. Equipment & Supplies. Outfitting your new business with everything you need to succeed means researching what equipment to buy, finding suppliers, and negotiating deals. You may buy a pizza oven that’s too big or buy more fresh food than you need; or you may buy one that’s too small and run short on capacity as your business grows, or run short on pepperoni on a busy evening or weekend. Franchisors can provide invaluable help in knowing both what and how much to buy – often at reduced prices.

 

5. Marketing If you’re Joe’s Pizza, you’re on your own when it comes to marketing and advertising. If you’re a Pizza Hut franchisee, you have the power of the brand’s multi-million-dollar national and regional marketing and advertising behind you. There’s a price to pay for these benefits: a monthly contribution to a national advertising fund. But if you’re Joe, every penny to market and advertise your business comes directly out of your bottom line

 

6. Speed to Market You can build the most beautiful retail store or buy the perfect van for your mobile business and fill both with the most expensive equipment. That takes time, as well as money. Or you can sign up with a franchisor who’s done this hundreds of times and be handed a shopping list of exactly what you need to set up shop, allowing you to open for business more quickly than if you had to research it all on your own.

 

7. Faster & guaranteed ROI (Return on Investment) No matter how grand your opening, when you start your own business it takes time to build a client base and local reputation. When you advertise a known brand name in your new market, customers come ready-made, and the cash starts flowing faster.

 

In summary why the franchise route is the way to go & why I chose to make this decision (Director – Kim Williams is a franchisee too)

  • Established brand;
  • Proven business concept & operating model;
  • Established operating policies, procedures & standards;
  • Lower statistical risk of failure;
  • Immediate momentum on opening through established brand equity of the franchise;
  • Established customer base of the franchise;
  • Training & on-going support from the franchisor;
  • Shared marketing costs with the franchisor & other franchisees;
  • Support in difficult times from the franchisor;
  • On-going product & service innovation;
  • Increased buying power via the franchise group;
  • Easier to obtaining finance from banks and other lenders; and
  • Increased chance of a successful sale of the franchise upon exit.

Circle of Love Strong Marketing Focus = Successful Business

“A Taste Of Circle of Love Online Marketing Included.”

The heart of a successful business lies in its marketing. Most aspects of your business depend on successful marketing. The overall marketing umbrella covers advertising, public relations, promotions and sales. Marketing is a process by which a product or service is introduced and promoted to potential customers. Without marketing, your business may offer the best products or services in your industry, but none of your potential customers would know about it. Without marketing, sales may crash and companies may have to close.

At Circle of Love Weddings we have a strong focus on marketing & have adapted many successful marketing strategies.

Included in your Circle of Love franchise is a start up marketing package designed for your region & target market. Below is an illustration of what you can expect.

The bonus of having a franchise is that for future marketing we divide costs among our franchisees so it becomes a very low monthly cost to you compared to if you owned your own small business. We also have proven marketing strategies that create up to 900 visits a month to our website excluding social media pages.

A Taste Of Circle of Love Branding

What does branding mean? What comes to mind when you hear Adidas, Channel or IBM? The images, personal experiences or thoughts you associate with each of these names is what makes up their brand. A brand is actually the logo, message, design or character of your product or service. If done well it will differentiate your business from competitors in the market, yet reflect the feel of the overall market you operate in.

For instance a food brand would be very different in look and feel to a wedding stylist brand. The colours used would differ as would the strengths of the icons. It is important to stand out from your competitors but stay in your industry model so as not to confuse your potential clients.

Business Branding is vital to the business success.

Your logo and other marketing materials can have a great impact on your company’s success. Branding your business professionally helps you stand out and adds credibility and trust. It tells prospects that you are a professional company who pays attention to detail and invests in your brand and your business.

An attractive brand identity, consisting of logo, brochures, graphics, and other business materials can leave a lasting impression on clients.

At Circle of Love we have a strong brand name not only through our logo, website, brochures, business cards, graphics but also outside the box with a ‘Wedding Planner App’, unique designer lip glosses, mobile phone cases plus more.
