Join us at Kell’s Irish Pub on March 25, 2014 for the second in our 3-part Marketing Series!

Get your tickets here! 

When event professionals are asked who they want to work with the answer is most often… anyone who’s engaged/ having an event/ needs invitations/ needs team-building events. Well, that answer is not going to attract the client that will pay you what you’re worth. And it’s probably going to bring a lot of headaches your way.

You need to define your specific flavor of client and direct your marketing to that person every time. You may think you know who you’re marketing to but if your income isn’t where you want it to be and your clients are not making you excited every morning then you’re attracting the wrong flavor! You need to narrow down your flavor’s preferences and make sure that your company is reflecting what they value. Then your business will become one of their preferences and be referred to their friends every time.

It’s time to go through all of your marketing and look at it as though you are your flavor. Does it appeal to you? Does it attract you? Do you want to work with this business? Discover your flavor and innovative ways to market to them with Award Winning International Wedding and Event Producer and the Founder of Community of Wedding & Event Innovators, Ciara Glendon.
