RecommendationsCollaborative Partners & Software
We have a short list of recommendations, with discounts when available
Financial Software: Point-of-Sale
Our #1 recommendation for tracking your sales details. BridalLive is the leading point-of-sale software in the bridal store industry. I collaborate directly with BridalLive to continually improve user experience and profitability for bridal store owners. I love BridalLive for their dogged commitment to customer service and for seeking out the solutions that will serve the industry at the highest level.
Special Offer: Butterfly Revolution Clients Receive two months Free – New BridalLive Customers Only. Email firstname.lastname@example.org if you want to claim the two months.
Sales Training & Industry Thought Leader
The White Dress Society
Beth Chapman is the founder of The White Dress Society as well as Beth Chapman Styling and Consulting. She draws on a deep career in the bridal and fashion industry to guide independent bridal retailers to reach their highest potential. The Series 2.0 is an in-depth guide to selling to today’s bride. Beth also leads the annual White Dress Society Retreat – an intimate not-to-be missed gathering of bridal store owners convened for inspiration, networking, and learning. Meeting Beth, and having the opportunity to combine our superpowers to guide bridal stores to greater heights, was the ultimate stroke of good fortune. I’m sure you will feel the same – many of our mutual clients have cited Beth’s training and mentoring as a turning point in their sales and store management.
Accounting Software – General Ledger
QuickBooks has been in the game since 1983. This has given them the time to develop THE accounting software for small businesses. QuickBooks Online (QBO) is a robust platform that balances the complex accounting needs of a bridal store with a clean interface and good customer service. There are plenty of competitors on the market, but none of them have caught up. While there are a couple of other options that I will put a rubber stamp on, depending on the need, QuickBooks is my only recommendation for bridal stores. With the new BridalLive integration, QuickBooks Online is the way to go. See our Ditch the Desktop service or our accounting plans if you need help transitioning to QuickBooks Online!
Special Offer: We pass along our Pro-Advisor Discount for the Life of your Quickbooks Plus Subscription ~25%. New QuickBooks Online Accounts Only.
IMPORTANT! QuickBooks only allows this discount for new accounts. If you have a trial, QuickBooks considers that an existing account. You would need to provide a new email address for a new account. Refund requests are charged $15 for fees and time for anyone that skips this warning.
Payroll and basic HR
Gusto is a full-service payroll, benefits, workers comp. and HR platform serving over 40,000 small businesses nationwide. Gusto is also a completely cloud-based platform integrated with QuickBooks.
I started recommending Gusto over Quickbooks Payroll because I find that from the business-owners perspective, Gusto is far-more intuitive and user-friendly.
