5 things wedding vendors need to do on Facebook
Updated: Jul 8
When a couple gets engaged, one of the first things they can’t wait to do is change their relationship status to “engaged” on Facebook. So how can any wedding vendor use this #1 social network to attract more of these newly engaged couples to their business?
To remain relevant and in touch with your customers and potential customers, make sure you post regularly. If your page shows posts only once per month or even less frequently, any page visitor will think you’re not really in business or that interested in staying in touch with past or current customers.
Highlight your work
For any type of wedding vendor -- where you’re a photographer, planner, florist, caterer, hairstylist, etc. -- featuring a specific wedding on your blog and then posting it to Facebook is a great strategy for showcasing your work and what makes your services stand out. This is a way to display some of your most recent work and for potential clients of yours to point out what they might want to integrate in their own wedding.
Do any of your former clients or customers like your page on Facebook? Feel free to reach out to them and specifically ask them to review your business page. This works very well if their wedding was recent and you’re still fresh in their mind, but it can also work by sending an email to touch base a few months afterwards.
Promote a special offer
Now that your page is up to speed, it's time to think about how you can attract or incentivize a future client to begin communicating with you regarding your wedding services. Is there a bonus, promo code, giveaway, freebie or guide that you can offer your Facebook audience? Here are some ideas:
Sunday and weekday wedding specials
A bonus engagement session giveaway
Promo code for booking by a certain date
Order 5 bridesmaid bouquets, get 1 free
How to pick a wedding planner, photographer, or caterer guide
Book more consultations
