Here are just a few of the benefits of attending local networking events
- Meet New Companies – By networking with other businesses in the wedding industry, you can make new connections in a friendly setting. When the pressure is off, learning about wedding organizations that you haven’t worked an event with and their unique product or experience is easy. Chances are, both of you will leave a great conversation excited to recommend each other in the future!
- Build Deeper Relationships – We like to do business with people we like. But it can be hard to get to know other professionals during a busy wedding or even worse, by cold-calling them. Instead, you can invest in people in the industry at wedding networking events and learn more about each other in a fun, personal setting.
- See and Be Seen – When we’re busy with a full wedding schedule, we often focus only on taking care of our clients. While that’s important, it may look like you’ve dropped out of the wedding industry to everyone else. There is value in being present at events and letting other wedding professionals know you’re still in business and offering a great service.
- Share Exciting Things – If you’ve been working on a new service, product or just found an awesome new way to do your thing, networking is the perfect opportunity to get others excited about what you’ve been up to! People love supporting passionate people that are full of energy when they talk about their wedding business. Don’t miss the chance to share yours with others.
- Create Social Media Content – Social media requires constant content to keep your pages fresh. And wedding networking events offer an easy way to get a lot of it at once! Snap pictures with others in the industry or cool event spaces, feature and tag the event sponsors, and make short videos for stories from guest speakers, educational content, and more.
Not sure if networking is for you?
If you’re new to networking, it may be easy to underestimate its value. We often think of networking as walking into a room of strangers, but in reality, when you connect with others in your industry, you can have a great time and grow your referrals faster than you ever thought possible.
- Get Help – We’re all members of the same industry, which means we’ve seen a lot of the same things and often struggle with the same challenges. Don’t stay stuck on a problem – join a wedding association and attend wedding networking events to get help from colleagues who might be able to help.
- Access Referral Opportunities – Meeting great referral partners is easy to do at an industry event. Whether you find someone that complements your business or needs a referral option for overflow work, meeting others that can become a sales force for you and doing the same for them is a great way to grow your wedding business.
- Gain More for Less – Networking events are typically inexpensive but offer unlimited value. Invest in your company by making it a practice to attend and stay active in the wedding industry. You’ll gain business and friendships while having a lot of fun.
- Showcase Your Services By Becoming a Sponsor – Many wedding networking events need sponsors to help make it happen. By supporting a local event, you’re not only doing good things in your community, but you’re also gaining instant exposure to everyone that attends!
