Become a Top Wedding Planner – Answering Blogging FAQs from Wedding Planners

 

Wedding Planner Posting to Her Blog

I often mention how you, as a wedding planner, need to have a blog and post frequently, at least 2 times a week if not more, to attract business and give potential clients an opportunity to get to know, like, and trust you, so they will hire you.

I get a lot of questions about blogging so I posted some here along with the answers:

How do I start a blog?

First you have to find a blogging provider.  Free ones are Blogger and WordPress.com.  They have templates and are easy to use, and you will probably be up and running in less than 30 minutes.  There are paid providers such as TypePad which give you more control over your site.  Or you can have a WordPress.org blog, which is what this blog is.  I downloaded free software but I pay a web hosting company a monthly fee to host it, similar to what I do with my websites.

The free blogs are very easy to use but you do not get as much flexibility and you don’t own your content. In other words, they can close down your site if they view you are doing something they don’t like, usually too much promotion or selling.  However, ff you aren’t very technical and absolutely need to start with a free service, you will be able to transfer blog posts from Blogger to a WordPress.org site.  I know because this blog started as a Blogger blog.

How do I find the time to blog?

It shouldn’t take you too long to compose a blog post.  They can to be short and quick and easy to read.  Schedule time on a regular basis to sit at your computer for 20 to 30 minutes and write a post or you can collect notes in a recorder or on paper during the day and just finish it when you get to your computer.

I usually have a list of things that I know I want to blog about.  Sometimes though, an idea will come to me while I’m walking my dog, driving, or reading a book or magazine.  In these cases I either jot down notes or speak them into a digital recorder that I carry and my post is ready to be finished when I get to my computer.

What do I blog about?

Write on topics that would interest the brides in your niche.  Get inspiration from magazines, wedding television shows, and the weddings that you plan.

If you need ideas to jump start your blogging, read my article, “7 Ideas for Blog Content” that I posted on my Wedding Planner Articles site.

Can I include information about my personal life?

It’s best to stick to information that is relevant to your business and your clients.  You can mention a little about your personal life to help your audience get to know you but keep very personal details out.  Remember what you are blogging will be read by your future clients.  Make sure you always appear professional.

If you haven’t started blogging yet, do it now.  It is an important part of marketing your business.
