Booths4You, what a first 18 months!
After 17 years in a leisure based business, I stepped, sorry leapt into an industry where I had no experience. However, what I did have was an idea and a plan…Booths4You. Looking back now it wasn’t that much of a leap as they are both customer facing with a priority on providing a first class service.
In my previous role I ran events for some of the UK and Europe’s biggest companies. So why couldn’t I transfer these skills to ensure the role we play in someone’s special day is first class.
Booths4You was created; including a website built with my own two hands with nothing more than learnings from YouTube and designing the logo and literature that would support us in our first 12 months.
Researched the ‘Best in Business’
We researched and bought the best Photo Booth, Giant Light-up LOVE Letters and Candy Cart from www.photobooth.co.uk. Ensuring we had quality products to support the top notch service we were going to provide was paramount to us.
The following week we were set up and ready to see what The Scottish Wedding Show at Glasgow’s SEC would bring for our new business venture. A busy weekend with 8,000 attendees but we had a blast meeting everyone and thankfully took some bookings as well!
It wasn’t long until 2016 was upon us and it passed in a blink of an eye! 119 Photo Booth bookings in year one was more than we expected, but something we look back on with pride. It was a great feeling knowing that we were providing a great service and playing a part in making someones wedding, party or event a little bit more special.
We’ve learnt loads, visited great venues and hotels across Scotland and met lots of fantastic people within this exciting industry. We’ve had lots of fun with our fabulous customers, some have already re-booked us for other family or work gatherings, demonstrating that we definitely did something right!
