why every wedding professional needs a website

With the number of users on social media websites and platforms consistently growing every year, it’s no surprise that businesses have jumped on the train as well — and for good reason! It’s a fun way to engage with potential customers and increase your reach.

However, far too many entrepreneurs have started to rely almost entirely on social media to grow their business, instead of reaping the benefits from building an effective and informative website.

If you’ve ever heard the saying, “Don’t build your property on someone else’s land,” then you may understand what we’re getting at here.

Here’s the truth: every business needs an impactful website to reach potential customers. And for wedding professionals, this isn’t just a guessing game . . it’s fact.

The Latest in Wedding Industry Data

According to WeddingWire’s 2018 Newlywed Report, which utilizes information from almost 18,000 newlyweds who said their vows in 2017, 83% of wedding planning is now done online.

Additionally, the top sources for finding wedding vendors were wedding-related websites and online searches.

What does this mean for wedding professionals? In short, this data suggests that those who offer the most assistance and access to potential couples on the web are more likely to win the competition against those who don’t.

And if that isn’t enough to convince you, here’s a list of other fantastic reasons why your wedding company needs a website that sells.

1. You own it.

That’s right: not Facebook, not Youtube, not any other fancy social media platform that rises to the top in upcoming years. Your website is yours to keep.

The best part? You can customize your website the way you’d like, and show off your craft in a way that isn’t limited by the algorithms and boring profile settings of any social platform.

2. Websites are the perfect way to spotlight your portfolio.

Wedding couples love seeing specific examples of previous work. Whether you’re a wedding designer who’s got a knack for everything vintage or you’re an up-and-coming videographer with a unique editing style, your website is the best chance you have of showcasing what you love so much about being in the industry.

3. You can use your website as the foundation to all of your other marketing and sales efforts.

Think of your website like a “city center”: you may have interstates and roads extending out in other directions, but they all can help drive traffic back to the core.

Instead of seeing your social media handles, your networking events, and any wedding shows you attend as being solitary, start to look at them like a connected web, with your site at the center.

This means that the focus becomes less about convincing potential clients to buy solely through that one channel, but instead about cycling them through the buyer’s journey.

For example, if you have someone who sees a post on Instagram and loves your work, they can view your profile, begin to explore your website, and follow other areas where you’re engaged (such as your blog, your Youtube channel, your Pinterest boards, etc.).
