CALLING ALL WEDDING PROFESSIONALS. I'm super excited to announce that I will be a sponsor of a two-day marketing workshop for wedding pros this spring! Some of you may know that I'm the founder of the Maine Wedding Network. In that business, I bring wedding professionals together for networking and social events to help nurture relationships and strengthen the wedding community here in Maine. We have an incredible community of talented, creative, and professional wedding vendors, and I feel lucky to be part of this network.
So, this spring, March 31, 2017 and April 1, 2017 to be exact, I'll be sponsoring the Streamline Marketing Workshops spring conference hosted by Amber Small of Sweetest Thing Weddings and Rich Brooks of Flyte New Media. They'll be bringing together national marketing professionals to bring content specifically for business professionals in the wedding industry. It's gonna be awesome!
Marketing Workshop Hosts
Everything I've learned about marketing I've learned from Rich! He knows everything about digital marketing and knows how to explain it. He has an easy delivery and is patient with (stupid) questions. He's the founder of the Agents of Change conference which takes place in Maine every year, and which I've had the pleasure of attending (via livestream).
Amber started her wedding business more than 20 years ago and clearly knows her beeswax. Her passion for marketing and weddings makes her the perfect host for a conference like this. She speaks from the heart in an authentic and relatable way. She also helps to ensure that whatever marketing strategy is being discussed is framed by how it can be implemented by wedding professionals.
Why I Think You Should Attend
I've listened to the Streamline Marketing Workshops podcast, attended a free webinar and attended an in-person mastermind class, all of which were presented by Amber and Rich, and I can tell you that each time I learned something new. I am somewhat of an amateur marketing geek, so this is actually quite telling about Amber and Rich's depth of knowledge and ability to communicate it.
And, the most important reason to attend is that this conference is the marriage (hahaha, get it?!) between the marketing world and the wedding world. You will get practical information that you'll be able to implement immediately. This isn't just something I'm telling you, I've actually experienced this. After the mastermind class Rich and Amber produced, I immediately registered my business on Google My Business and now I'm in the Snack Pack (you'll have to come to the conference to find out what that is)!
Amber and Rich have put together a kickass line up of speakers including Meryl Snow who is a nationally renowned speaker, consultant and trainer in the hospitality industry.
To sum up:
- I trust the hosts
- I know the content will be excellent
- The entire conference is designed specifically for wedding professionals
- (oh, and I'll be hosting an afternoon panel discussion!)
