The Popularity of a Dual Etiquette Certification

The Popularity of a Dual Etiquette Certification

The Popularity of a Dual Etiquette Certification

We have noticed the popularity of our combined or dual etiquette certifications rise over the past year.

There are many reasons for this and one being the demand for business etiquette training in the workplace. 

With Generation Z entering the workforce, companies need consultants, corporate trainers and speakers to come into their organization to offer programs to support their on-boarding process. 

Additionally, being certified in both children’s and business etiquette allows for a more consistent income. This is a plus for those that choose to speak and teach full-time.

A Combined or Dual Certification in Children’s and Business Etiquette Is Popular Because: 

The Popularity of a Dual Etiquette Certification
  1. Comprehensive Skillset: Having expertise in both children’s etiquette and business etiquette provides a more comprehensive skillset. It allows you to cater to a wider range of clients and situations, from teaching children manners and social skills to coaching professionals on workplace etiquette and communication.
  2. Market Demand: There is a growing demand for professionals who can address both children’s etiquette and business etiquette needs. In today’s competitive world, parents often seek etiquette training for their children to help them succeed socially and academically, while businesses value employees with strong interpersonal skills and professional demeanor. More than ever, there is a need for training specifically for Generation Z as they are entering the workforce.
  1. Versatility: A combined certification offers versatility in career opportunities. Professionals with expertise in both areas can work in various settings, including schools, businesses, nonprofit organizations, and private consulting. As an etiquette expert and speaker, you can offer a range of services such as workshops, training sessions, private coaching, and consulting engagements.
  1. Integration of Skills: Many aspects of etiquette, such as communication, social skills, and respect for others, are applicable across different age groups and environments. Professionals with a combined certification can leverage their knowledge and skills from one area to enhance their work in the other. For example, teaching children about effective communication can also benefit professionals in their workplace interactions.
  1. Competitive Advantage: In a competitive market, having a dual certification can set individuals apart from others who specialize in only one area. It demonstrates a broader expertise and commitment to professional development, which can be appealing to clients and employers seeking well-rounded professionals.

3 Tools I Used to Update the Manners To Go Website

3 Tools I Used to Update the Manners To Go Website

3 Tools I Used to Update the Manners To Go Website

Today I am sharing three valuable tools I used to update the Manners To Go Certification website.

I have created many reiterations of our websites over the years.  It is quite a process and one that takes planning.

Creativity is key here.  Take the time you need to really plan this out.  Creativity actually doesn’t take place while you are working at your desk- it happens in the shower, at a stop light or maybe right before going to sleep at night.

I like to keep a notepad or my phone close by to keep up with my thoughts and ideas.

You never know when the creative spark will hit you.

The tools I am sharing with you are practical, easy, accessible and do not cost anything!

3 Tools to Create and Update the Manners To Go Website

Creating an etiquette expert’s website requires tools that can help in designing, developing, and managing the site effectively. 

  1. Photo file on my phone:  Over the years, I have collected thousands of photos- from trips, to table settings at museums, lunches with friends, speaking engagements, licensee in-person trainings – and the list goes on.  This collection of photos is what I used to recreate the Manners To Go certification site pages. 

2. Canva: Canva is a web-based graphic design platform that offers a wide range of templates, graphics, and tools for creating stunning visual content. Etiquette experts can use Canva to design eye-catching banners, social media graphics, infographics, and other visual elements for their website. Canva’s user-friendly interface and extensive library of resources make it a valuable tool for enhancing the aesthetics of the website and maintaining a professional image online.

3. Mind mapping: Less is more when writing copy for your website.  This actually takes more time.  I find Mind mapping to be key when writing copy that is meaningful and speaks to those landing on your website.  Brevity is a must when getting key messages and points across to viewers.  Parents, educators and anyone else who visits your website, needs to know exactly what you do and what you have to offer.

I have been in the weeds updating and revising the website for Manners To Go. Our new site for etiquette certification is a “must see”! 

Wow! Even though this was only an update- making all of these changes was quite an undertaking.

 

Behind the Scenes of an Etiquette Expert’s Website

Today I am taking you behind the scenes (sort of) but mostly giving tips on what it can look like for those of you wanting a website for your etiquette business.  

Planning is key for any project and this is especially important when creating a website.

A website for an etiquette expert is a way to showcase what you do, who you are and why you are doing it.  Another very important reason to have an etiquette website is this will be a great way to make a connection with the viewer- the parents, educators or the general public.

Writing Proposals for a Debutante Organization As a New Etiquette Expert 

Writing Proposals for a Debutante Organization As a New Etiquette Expert 

Writing Proposals for a Debutante Organization with a New Etiquette Expert

A debutante society is asking one of our licensees for a proposal. The licensee and I spoke yesterday and today I am sharing some of the guidance I gave her as a new etiquette expert.

Our ongoing support might be one of the most valuable components of our etiquette certification.

A debutante society is a prime candidate for etiquette training.  This particular one requested a half day presentation.

Major Tip:  If one debutante committee is asking for this type of training, how many others are out there in your community?  

Once you have written the proposal, make a list of others you may contact.  Who do you know in your network that can provide a direct contact for you?

Trust me, this licensee has the grace, grit and gumption to make this work to her advantage.

Because she is one of our licensees and certified in both children’s and business etiquette, she already has the curriculum, PowerPoints, proposal templates and training to make this easy, efficient and fast. 

Writing Proposals for a Debutante Organization with a New Etiquette Expert

Debutante Committee’s Requested Topics Include:

  • Table manners (American and European) 
  • RSVP (how to)
  • Thank you notes
  • Introductions
  • Meeting and Greetings
  • How to sit
  • How to exit a car
  • Interview tips
  • Professional appearance
  • Social media do’s and don’t’s
  • Tipping today
  • Toasting 

 Advice on Writing Proposals for a Debutante Organization As  a New Etiquette Expert:

  1. Understand the Purpose: Before diving into writing the proposal, make sure you understand the purpose of the debutante organization and what they aim to achieve. This will help you tailor your proposal to meet their specific needs and goals.
  2. Research: Familiarize yourself with the debutante culture, traditions, and etiquette standards. Research past events, protocols, and successful proposals to gather insights into what has worked well in the past and what can be improved upon.
  3. Identify Key Components: Break down the proposal into key components such as event logistics, program structure, etiquette training modules, budget considerations, and marketing strategies. Each component should be detailed and well-thought-out to ensure a comprehensive proposal.
  4. Highlight Expertise: As a new etiquette expert, emphasize your expertise, credentials, and unique approach to etiquette training. Showcase how your services can enhance the debutante experience and add value to the organization.
  5. Customize Solutions: Tailor your proposal to the specific needs and preferences of the debutante organization. Offer customized solutions and recommendations based on their objectives, audience demographics, and cultural context.
  6. Address Challenges: Anticipate and address potential challenges or objections that the organization may have. Whether it’s budget constraints, scheduling conflicts, or logistical issues, demonstrate your problem-solving skills and flexibility in finding solutions.
  7. Emphasize Benefits: Clearly outline the benefits of partnering with you as the etiquette expert. Highlight how your expertise can elevate the organization’s image, enhance participant experiences, and contribute to the overall success of their events.
  8. Provide Examples: Incorporate real-life examples, case studies, or testimonials to illustrate the effectiveness of your approach and the positive outcomes it has generated for other organizations or clients.
  9. Include a Call to Action: Conclude the proposal with a clear call to action, inviting the debutante organization to take the next steps, whether it’s scheduling a meeting, signing a contract, or requesting additional information.
  10. Follow Up: After submitting the proposal, follow up with the organization to answer any questions, address concerns, and reinforce your commitment to supporting their needs. Personalize your follow-up communication to demonstrate your genuine interest and dedication to their success.

By following these steps and incorporating your expertise as a new etiquette expert, you can create a compelling proposal that effectively communicates your value proposition and secures opportunities to collaborate with other debutante organizations.
