Digital Marketing For Weddings & Events
When organising a special occasion, like a wedding or a corporate event, people turn to friends, families and Google to find companies they can rely on. Will your business be there when someone searches for your services? Key Principles has the marketing solutions to help people find you.
Internet marketing for event planners and niche markets can often be difficult. Here are some reasons why digital marketing is important to the wedding and events sector:
- According to Google, if people had been aware that an event was happening in their area, 30% would have bought tickets.
- As an industry based on the latest trends, Keyword research can help your business stay at the forefront of these trends
At Key Principles, we help businesses when it comes to event marketing and planning, we look at search trends, analyse search terms from current and historic data, looking at keywords and finding the best means to promote your business.
There are numerous ways we have used AdWords to promote events, hospitality, and wedding companies. From the use of Display campaigns to build brand awareness to search ads that can be found with relevant searches.
