Here are 2 steps you can take today:
Stay in touch with your customers
People look to their industry leaders to show strength and stability during times like this. That is why, as an expert wedding pro, you have the opportunity to showcase your expertise by supporting engaged couples during this stressful time.
Try hosting online strategy sessions
If you're a wedding expo and need to postpone or cancel any planned events, try hosting a webinar or organize live sessions using Facebook, Instagram or Zoom. Engaged couples would love to see the community come together and show their support for wedding changes that are being done right now. Technology allows you to have a "virtual wedding expo" where all of your wedding pros can highlight what they're doing to help engaged couples and highlight how they can help them with future wedding bookings. Get creative!
