Having great photography is critical for marketing a wedding venue successfully. Start by hiring a professional real estate photographer to photograph all the spaces at your venue. You’ll want to capture all the interior areas and amenities, as well as exterior and aerial shots of the building. These photos are essential for your website, social media posts, and in any other marketing materials.
Don’t worry about making this a styled shoot. You can always collect photo albums from real weddings throughout the year.
Your venue’s website is often the first stop for potential couples. It needs to be visually appealing, informative, and transactional.
Some key features to include are: professional photos, a virtual tour, an overview of your amenities, pricing information and inclusions, and testimonials.
There are a lot of moving parts when it comes to marketing and selling a wedding venue. To save yourself time and to speed up the sales process, consider using marketing automation.
You can automate tasks like sending out brochures, follow-up emails, consultation appointments, and even social media posts.
