If you’re like us when someone says “Hey, you should book a discovery call” you get a little on edge. Is this just going to be an awkward 15-minute sales pitch that you’re going to have to tough out? Are you going to be put in a high-pressure situation? What are we even going to talk about and what do I have to prepare in advance? What do I even expect from this call?
While we can’t speak for other companies, we can tell you why a discovery call with TVE will benefit you and just what to expect!
#1 TO FIND OUT IF WORKING WITH AN EVENT PLANNER MAKES SENSE FOR YOU
You have an event idea in mind, it feels exciting, and maybe a bit overwhelming, and you don’t really know where to begin. Is this something you could take on yourself or should you be considering the services of a professional event planner? During this discovery call, we will dive into what you’re thinking, hash it out, and share in what ways we could help support you. We pride ourselves on honesty and if the event is not the right fit for our area of expertise or if the services of an event planner are not needed, we will tell you, we promise! We also find that a lot of the discovery call questions help people work through their idea and give them more to think about and consider before taking the next steps, which ultimately can save you time, money, and energy in the long run.
#2 TO GAIN SOME INSIGHT ON YOUR EVENT IDEA
We’ve all done it, we get a brilliant brainwave of an idea and we get so excited that we just start running with it. While all this enthusiasm and excitement is incredible and useful, sometimes taking a moment to pause and think it all the way through is a benefit. During a discovery call, we will dive into your idea with you, talk about high-level logistics, things to consider, and we will share with you our experiences on similar events. As mentioned above, throughout the discussion we often find there are a-ha moments for people, where they gain some insight on pieces that they never thought of or knew about. So let us help you through this moment of pause and you can draw on our expertise and experience to dig a little deeper into your idea!
#3 TO SEE IF WE ARE A GOOD FIT FOR YOU
As humans, we all want to be loved and accepted by everyone, but the reality is that in life there are some people that you just click with and some you don’t. Business relationships are the same. Taking 15 minutes for a discovery call will allow you some insight into who we are, why we do what we do, our approach, and what you can expect from us. With this information, you can get a sense of whether we would be a great partner for YOU! Events are fun and stressful, let’s be honest, but you want to be going through the experience with a partner that you feel comfortable and confident with and also have fun while working with them, so use discovery calls to find the perfect fit for you! And if it’s not us, we’re happy to recommend other great planners that may be a better fit….no hard feelings, we want you to be happy!
What can you expect from a discovery call with TVE?
Once you reach out, we’ll find a date and time that works for you and set up a video or phone call, whichever you prefer! We recommend setting aside 15 minutes for this session. We’ll start the call off with an introduction and get you to do the same, then we’ll dive into your event idea, ask some questions, and then talk about the next steps. Those next steps might be a proposal, a referral, or just some time to think and reflect about how you want to move forward. There’s no awkwardness, honest! Regardless, we love to get to know new people and our cup is filled with ideas and creativity from others, so let’s chat!
