Wedding Planners – Are You Sharing Your Political Beliefs Online?
Are you sharing your personal political views on the Internet? I’ve noticed recently that a number of new wedding planners are doing this on Facebook.
Everyone has opinions and beliefs, and if you feel comfortable expressing your feelings publicly on your personal pages, it’s your right, but realize it may have some consequences.
Brides can find your Facebook pages, even your personal ones. If someone does not share your beliefs, there is a chance that they might not want to hire you. This may be fine with you, if your niche only includes brides with your beliefs, and you only want to work for brides with similar beliefs. However, if you want to include others you might want to re-think posting your opinions.
Also, if you are currently working for another wedding planner or vendor in order to gain the experience you need, you might want to keep your opinions off social media sites. The views you express could impact whether or not their potential clients decide to hire them. You don’t want your views to be an issue that negatively impacts their livelihood.
