The first of its kind, BAWV WedSense is an innovation in learning for Wedding Venue Professionals. To help you get to grips with BAWV and WedSense, we’ve covered a few FAQs.
Why choose BAWV?
Here at Brilliance Assured for Wedding Venues we’re passionate about great weddings and brilliant wedding stories. As a venue coordinator we know you want to be too. But we also know it’s hard to invest in yourself. So we created a way to have access to ongoing training at an affordable and flexible cost. All without taking time off work. The creators of BAWV have more than 25 years of experience in weddings, events and increasing revenue. They know what it takes to deliver the best.
What is WedSense?
WedSense is the area of the BAWV website that contains the workbooks and videos that will help with personal and professional development, give hints and tips on how to increase revenue, interviews with key industry experts. And actual couples will spill the beans on their best and worst venue stories! Order a pass, stay as long as you like. You’ll also get access to a private Facebook Group where you’ll get even more content as well as challenges like how to go live like a pro!
What's my Investment?
Access to the WedSense area is by monthly or annual pass. You can stay one month, two, six…as long as you want to to make sure you get all you need to be brilliant.
Your investment is currently just £20 per month or £200 per year (2 months free). Payment is by credit card which will recur each month, unless you opt for annual when it will renew after 12 months. In either case you just need to cancel before the next payment is due to leave WedSense.
How do I access WedSense?
WedSense is the password protected area of the BAWV website and as soon as we receive payment you will receive login details. You can go in at any time of day, for as long and as often as you want while you hold a pass.
The WedSense area will constantly grow and evolve – the longer you’re in, the more you’ll get out and the better the ROI on your monthly investment will be.
What do I get?
For as long as you hold a pass you’ll get unlimited access to the WedSense area, a spot in the private Facebook Group (BAWV WedSense members only), access to industry leaders, offers of reduced tickets for industry events, case studies, best practice and interviews with brides and couples to find out what they really think.
There’s also personal development stuff, like Mindset, Goal Setting and Beating Procrastination.
Will I always pay the same?
For as long as you’re in, your monthly access investment is the same. In time, as the WedSense resources grow, the fee to access them will increase for new pass holders.
So if you join NOW at £20 per month, you’ll always pay £20 per month. If the fee increases to £40, you still pay £20. You pay the same rate until you leave, and the new rate should you choose to rejoin. The same for annual passes – pay annually for £200 now, it will always be £200 annually.
Is WedSense time consuming?
Unlike traditional training which is often offsite and takes you away from your duties for a day or more, WedSense is ongoing and can be accessed at any suitable time – during a coffee or lunch break for example. The videos will rarely be longer than 20 minutes.
Can my venue pay for me?
It can, but you’d still need to sign up yourself and pay first then ask them to reimburse you. If they’re willing to pay by credit card on your behalf that’s ok too. It’s your membership and if your venue are willing to invest in you then happy days!
Why the FB Group?
In this technological age we live in, everyone (pretty much) has access to Facebook. It’s a great portal to network with other wedding professionals, share horror stories and request help with suppliers. It’s also a safe place to have a little moan, ask for help with dealing with work issues and generally making some great new contacts and friends.
What if I miss a Live training?
No problem – all of the training videos, live or otherwise, end up in the WedSense area for you to access whenever you want how ever often you want. For as long as you make a monthly payment, you have access. Remember – if you leave WedSense you will also leave the FB Group.
