8 Details Your Website Must Have

    Hello, I’m just starting out in the business and am trying to put together my website. I don’t yet have professional pictures of any of my own events. Is it ok to use the stock photos? Or would it be better to not have any pictures at all? I don’t want to misrepresent myself but also want my website to look professional.
    Thank you,
    Shannon

    Shannon, thank you for taking time to comment. You can use stock photos for general website photos as long as you aren’t showing them as your own work in a portfolio section.

    When I first started, I asked the venues for photos and used these to build my site.

    I think there should be an optin form where they can reach to you directly or maybe register for a counselling session for their wedding planning. This way you’ll get an edge over other wedding planners because they would’ve already made a small commitment towards you and they’ll generate a tendency to stay consistent with that tendency. 🙂

    I’m finding that creating a website is very time-consuming. Would you recommend a new-comer hire someone to help them with the design and overall layout of the website? Is this worth the investment?

    Alyssa, a professional website is always a worthwhile investment unless you have the tech skills to create a great website yourself.

    Is it a good idea to post your preferred vendors or list some of your favorite vendors on your website? I am thinking of creating a page with logo links to some of the vendors I love (with their consent of course)

    Thoughts?

    I am not a fan of doing this since part of our jobs as planners is to recommend the event professionals who fit our client’s style and budget.

    I am doing wedding planning and struggling to get my website done. I am waiting to go to a couple of wedding shows. It seems to be hard to get going. I have had flyers done and managed to get a few contacts. I am desperate to get started but have had nothing. Is it something people really want to do, put a fair bit of money in, then lose the passion? Kind Regards, Lorraine.

    Thanks for your comment Lorraine. As with starting any business, it takes time and hard work to get established. Once you have your website up, you then have to find ways for brides to get to it (marketing, advertising, SEO, word of mouth, etc.). Hang in there. It takes some time!
