If you have an event venue, weddings are likely a large part of your business. Blogging is a great way to connect with the people looking for what you offer, but when you’re busy growing your business, organizing events and dealing with the challenges that inevitably come up, you might not have much time for content creation. Here are a few ideas.
Tips for Making Wedding Blog Content Ideas Your Own
I’m posting this where the whole universe can see it, so your venue isn’t the only one with access. Search engines and people don’t like duplicate content. Follow these tips for successful posting.
- Be creative with titles. The ones listed are suggestions to get you started. Add the name of your town or region. Change words to reach your audience.
- The sources listed will suggest ideas for content, but don’t copy them word for word.
- Use unique images and label them with ALT text. If you’re optimizing for local and the photo is something from your venue, include your location in the tag.
- Break your post up into sections no more than 250 words each. Use headings to tell what each section is about.
- Make each post about your target audience, not a sales pitch for your venue. Your focus should be to help them have the perfect wedding day.
- Include a call to action. Encourage them to get in touch, schedule a tour of your venue, book a date, whatever it is you want them to do. Make it super easy for them to follow up by linking to your contact form or reservation landing page.
