New Wedding Planners – Please Don't Send Spam

 

When you start your wedding planning business, most people will tell you to contact everyone you know to get some referrals. There is nothing wrong with doing that unless you plan to send out bulk emails, that is spamming and it won’t get you anything but irate friends and acquaintances.

Here is an example of what not to do. A few days ago I received an email that had a subject heading something like this: “To People Who Gave Me Their Business Card a Year Ago This Month”. I’m serious, it is what I received. She sent the email to all she gotten business cards from at a conference last year. What is worse, she wrote everyone’s email address in the “To” box so the addresses were visible. The email told what she had been doing in the last year and how she found something that is changing her life and could change mine too. I won’t be checking it out.

Let people know you have started a wedding planning business but do it by personal contact first, to family and friends. If you feel like you need to email people, do it one at a time to people who know you.
