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.


  • 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.
