Here at WeddingIQ we've talked at length about determining which wedding shows to attend, weighing the options when it comes to advertising, and building your brand. We’ve also stressed the importance of high quality collaterals and hiring creatives and coaches for support, as well as joining professional groups within your industry. All these suggestions require an investment of not only your time but also a decent percentage of your business income. Purchasing expensive letterpress business cards or joining exclusive (and pricey) networking groups may help establish your brand, but don’t ignore all the free ways you can market yourself and your business.

As wedding business owners, most of us don't (yet) have the luxury of outsourcing all our marketing to a pro, or retaining a marketing person on our team. We have to keep up with the seemingly endless task of marketing our services ourselves, and it can quickly become overwhelming. (Funny how good marketing can bring in more clients, and then serving those clients leaves you so little time for more good marketing!)
Fortunately, there are some tips and hacks you can use to make the job of marketing your wedding business easier. Most of them involve keeping yourself organized (in terms of time and materials) and ensuring your marketing efforts are tailored toward your specific clientele and your business goals.
