Wedding & Event Website Design
A website that takes the cake
It’s estimated that the event-planning industry will grow 10 percent by 2024 — a faster rate than most other occupations. While the boom in the industry may be cause for celebration, it also means that everyone in the events industry — from wedding planners to exhibition coordinators — is facing more and more competition every year. To attract more clients in an overcrowded marketplace, you have to stand apart. And one of the most effective ways of distinguishing your business from the competition is a high-quality website.
What makes a great wedding or event planning website?
As an event planner, you create unforgettable, stress-free experiences for your clients. Do the same for your website visitors. Great websites compel people to spend more time on them — and ultimately take action — because they are easy to navigate and visually appealing, they function properly and they feature content that is informative and engaging.
To ensure visitors have a positive experience on your website, the best design will have the following basic elements:
- Contact information, including links to your social media pages
- An about page or statement that gives background information on you and the company, and explains your mission statement
- Clear calls to action, asking visitors to contact you, sign up for your email list or request a consultation
- A secure hosting platform
- A mobile-responsive design, so your website displays properly on mobile, tablet and desktop
- A simple and memorable domain name
After you’ve laid down your foundation, you can focus on increasing the website’s functionality and tailoring the design to fit your brand. To encourage prospective clients to reach out to you while they’re planning their special day, consider enhancing your design with the following:
- A picture or video gallery to showcase your work
- Information about the unique services or products you offer
- Client testimonials and links to press coverage
- Staff photos and biographies
Remember, people visit your website to find out what they can expect from you. The last thing you want is a subpar design that misrepresents your brand or reflects negatively on your company. If you can provide visitors with an exceptional user experience, they’ll have confidence in your ability to provide them with an exceptional wedding, party or special event.
Why you need a professional wedding or event planning website
Do you rely on wedding expos, trade shows and referrals to attract new clients? If so, you can give those traditional marketing techniques a boost by building your online presence. Direct prospects to your website — your digital home base — where they’ll find more information about your company, view your portfolio and book a consultation.
Success for any event-related businesses is driven by brand exposure, and the internet offers the largest network for growing your company. A professional website, as opposed to an online directory, is an especially powerful marketing tool because you’ll have total control over the branding. You determine the imagery, color scheme and messaging that is used. Together with a high-quality design, this ensures visitors get a positive impression of your company.
Why you need professional website tools or services
Did you know that nearly half of all websites fail basic usability tests? Don’t let a cluttered website with poor functionality or missing information prevent someone from reaching out to you. Instead, put your best foot forward by using professional design tools or services.
