Competing for Clients as a Wedding Planner

By November 28, 2012

The thing you want to remember about all those websites, magazines, and bridal shows is that they were created to sell advertising.

Wedding planners provide a special service to brides and their families. Beyond suggesting themes and ideas, a good wedding planner removes a lot of the stress involved with the wedding. The connection between planner and client is as much emotional as it is professional. This is why an advertisement is typically not the best way to sell your service.

So what is the most effective way to land wedding prospects? First you need to distinguish yourself as the right person for the job, and then position your service where it will be seen. Find out more in this collection of marketing ideas for wedding planners.
