Effective websites for wedding and function venues
With so many event locations out there, event organisers and wedding couples have a dizzying array of choice when they want to organise an event or celebration. Your website needs to command attention from the very first click and give compelling reasons why your venue is the place they’re looking for.
Potential customers may not have time to visit many venues before making a decision, so if you want your venue to make the shortlist your website needs great pictures to give them an idea of what they’ll find when they come to you.
In addition, reviews from happy customers really help. Having well-liked social media pages – Facebook, Instagram, etc. – also helps build your profile and media presence.
Putting your venue first
You go out of your way to ensure your customers have successful events and everything runs smoothly. But does your website really show everything your venue has to offer in its best light? And more importantly, does it bring in business?
A venue can make or break an event, so potential customers will want the reassurance you can meet their needs. Search engines are the go-to place for any research, so your website needs to:
- Give a great first impression
- Inspire potential customers to visit it
- Rank highly in a search
Highlight what sets you apart from your competitors. Let visitors to your site know you’ve got that special something they’re looking for to put on a memorable event, wedding or function.
A wise investment
In today’s economy, owners and managers of hotels, wedding- and other event venues are often looking for ways to cut corners in their budgets and save money. However, economising on website design is a grave mistake.
Investing in a modern, inviting, easy to navigate, optimised website fosters brand awareness and drives sales.
