90: Impactful Gifting Strategies for 2020, with Margaux Fraise

Today's guest is Margaux Fraise from Harmony Creative Studio in Los Angeles. Margaux has been planning weddings and events for 8 years. She's also a cancer survivor, which in 2014 knocked her out of running her business for about two years. Through that experience, she learned to appreciate life, the little things, and the gestures that go a long way. So today we talk about gifting for both clients and vendors – why that’s the right thing to do but can also be used as a strategy to get more business.     On the episode, you heard Margaux talk about a Client Gifting for Wedding Pros Cheat Sheet, and you can find that at bit.ly/weddingprogifting!   Harmony Creative Studio on Social Media: Instagram: @HarmonyCreative Facebook: @HarmonyCreativeStudio Pinterest: @harmonycreativestudio   Weddings for Real on Social Media: Instagram: @weddingsforreal Facebook: @weddingsforreal twitter: @weddingsforreal   As you heard at the top of the show, Southern Bride and Groom Magazine has rebranded to Heart of NC Weddings!  Check out their website at HeartOfNCWeddings.com or visit them on social AT HeartOfNCWeddings.  And be sure to celebrate with them on December 19th at Parlour at Manns Chapel in Chapel Hill NC.
