When you are getting started with your wedding planning, you may feel as if you can’t possibly do it all by yourself. You will feel that you need to make connections, have people that you need to help, and that you need to start getting everything together before you can even think of doing anything.
But how much do you really have to add to your schedule, when you first start your wedding planning? All the above can be done by yourself at first- that’s what it’s going to be, you will feel it, and you’ll be able to do it. But actually, if you plan the work first, you’ll have something to add to your plate later- as you (and your team) learn what else needs to be done, it will go faster and better.
Here are things that you do need to do!
The best thing you can do at the start of your wedding planning program is to take on more work. Get surprised by this. It’s almost a given for anyone who is starting a freelance agency? The more people that you have to help you in your efforts the more successful you will be. Most companies, large and small, have already been around many years and the employees that they have now are older, more experienced, and probably just a little less enthusiastic. But it’s a case of what’s going to add to your bottom line first- and then you can consider the rest.
Take On More Types of Work Early – It’s incredible how fast you can train yourself to be a management expert, especially when you have so many different options available. And, once you have done this, you will really see how the rest people in your organization rise to the occasion.
Make Use of Technology – One thing to keep in mind as you’re setting up your website, blog, and social media accounts is that it’s so much easier to get things set up online, with the help of tools like Blogger, WordPress, and Twitter. Make your website look like a custom aerodynamics site so that it shines. Also, make it easy for your new networks and organizations to reach you. Try contacting organizations that are already doing business with you, and ask them if you can become an affiliate.
Network outside your own organization early – You need to start connecting with people, and if you’re not networking with other wedding planners early, then it’s too late to start. Don’t count on getting a steady stream of suppliers, suppliers, and suppliers who will be able to vouch for your work, or to categorize your business. You school has nothing to do with that.
Keep up with the skills that you hold – If you are attending an event or two at the beginning of your wedding planning program, be sure to keep up with the newest trends. But, also be sure to keep up with the work you’re doing, and the experience you have gained through years of planning weddings..
Implement Learning New Ideas Quickly – You’ve heard it before, but it’s often true. If you’re not moving forward, your work is not getting done. Find a good inspirational book, and a weekly speaker who is genuinely interested in what you do and what you are going through.
Make it very easy for your clients to contact you, and always, always have your cell and email forwarded to them. More people care about relationships than they want to care about their phones and other devices, and will make sure to do this for you.
Tell everyone that you know about this, as soon as you hear about it. They will want to know what you’re doing, and as a result, the word will spread faster than you could possibly manage.
