The Program

Everything You Need to Know About Instagram
Marketing For Wedding Planners

instagram

Instagram is the most engaged with social media for 25 to 35 year olds and is perfect for services that are visual and inspiring, which means Instagram is an incredible resource for the wedding industry! Learn how to get the most of this hugely powerful platform in the least amount of time. See what major brands from Fortune 500 companies and top wedding professionals have in common in their Instagram posts and how that can help you get the results you need to reach more of the right clients.

Objectives:

  • Learn why Instagram matters to your business.
  • Visual examples of what you should be doing on Instagram.
  • Creating your Instagram voice.
  • How to get the right followers.
  • Using Hashtags correctly without abusing them.
  • The latest updates to Instagram and strategies to take advantage of them.

Biggest Social Media Mistakes Wedding Professionals Make (and how to fix them)

social media

Every wedding professional is on social media trying to gain more clients the same ways and most are failing. In a crowded marketplace and a shifting and more sophisticated audience, you need to understand marketing fundamentals, social media platform best practices, and what makes selling wedding services different from other industries.

Objectives:

  • What makes event professionals different and how that impacts their social media.
  • Creating a social media strategy for your business that even an intern could handle.
  • Not every social media is the same – differences between platforms that you need to know when communicating there.
  • Ways to rise above the noise and engage with potential clients.
  • Examples of wedding professionals who are using social media correctly.
