81: Brandee Gaar- Why You Need Warm Leads And How To Get Them!
What if you could just show up at a bridal show and get a booking right away? Imagine if newly engaged couples contacted you via DMs, and emails or even approached you on the street to set up an appointment. These scenarios ARE possible, but not without laying the groundwork first. In this episode, I feature my interview with Brandee Gaar on the Wedding Pro CEO podcast. Brandee and I discuss why you need warm leads in your business and how to get them, so keep listening!
