Last Saturday, here at Red Bow Boudoir, we hosted an Open Day, and what a success it was!!
The idea was to invite prospective customer (as well as friends and previous customers) to come to the Studio to meet the team, take a tour of the Studio and to get a really good perspective of what a shoot will involve, before they book. We understand from listening to many of you, that many Ladies really want to book, but their insecurities hold them back. These include: What are the team like? Are they friendly? Are they professional? Will they be intimidating? Will they understand my body issues? Where is the Studio? Will it be a bit seedy?!!!…….. the list goes on!! By coming to visit us at an Open Day, we will put your mind at ease, and you will feel comfortable and familiar with everything when you come for your shoot.
The planning for the Open Day was fun. We always offer our Ladies who book on our Open Day’s a Special Offer, as well as a Goody Bag to take home. This time the offer was 50% off the shoot with a framed print, AND the Ladies also received a beautiful Coast Clutch Bag, £50 off additional prints, £15 off Doo-Da’s Hairdressers voucher, 10% off Ann Summers voucher, a Red Bow Boudoir Cookie, an Easter Egg and a lip balm or hand cream.
There were plenty of refreshments available too, with the wine (and soft drinks), flowing right from the start, and lots of delicious nibbles on offer too.!
Juliette also offered Free Makeovers. This was especially popular with the Ladies who were going out that night! Not only did they get an idea of how they might like their Make Up done for their shoot, but they left looking super glamorous for their night out later!
We opened our doors from 10am until 4pm and we received a really steady flow of Ladies all day long. We are delighted to say that everyone who came through the door made a booking with us for a shoot, or had already made one and had just came along to see the studio and meet the team in advance of their booked shoot.
We also held a raffle, which entitled one lucky Lady to a free shoot.
We were amazed at the success of the day and would like to thank everyone who attended and supported us, including Ann Summers, Doo-Da’s , who partnered us for the event.
For those of you who missed the Open Day, please keep watching our Facebook page for the next one, but in the meantime, please look at our Website, in particular the behind the scenes video, which give a great insider view of the Studio, the Team and what a Shoot involves.
