If you’re the kind of person who loves going around, organizing things and hates being slouched in one place for eternity, there’s no doubt that you were born to be an event planner. It’s glamorous and exciting. Meeting new people for the first time and having your own office with walls filled the sticky notes and confetti’s. It’s every event planner’s dream to be the number one best organizer. The event planner is the Picasso behind every successful event. In this field you will definitely be faced with a lot of competition and so many lookalike planners. Here’s a few pointer’s out of many that takes to be a good planner.
Let’s leave aside the sugar coat and be real. You have to recommend and market yourself to sell your business. There’s always going to be a lot of crossroads in this situation. But what makes an amazing event planning is how good you can sell yourself. It’s a no brainer, that social media plays an important part here. Most of us find different planners through recommendations on social media, so you need to have an eye catching profile that draws in customers.Your personality is your selling item. It’s required that you listen to every single detail, from the color to the venue that your customer prefers. The customers always comes first in your business.
Think out of the box
Leave out the conventional party ideas and be creative with your thoughts. Don’t drag it to a point of extravagance. Keep it simple and elegant. The lack of creative ideas and themes could sink your ship soon enough. There’s always new trends coming up. Stick to them and find ways you can incorporate them with your event. If you’re handling a kid’s event, instead of the bouncy castles and balloons, take in an amazing animal farms for kids. Kids and adults both love animals. It would be a great way to keep all guests included in the party by playing and petting with their favorite animal. This is one of out the many ways you can think out there and make your event unforgettable.
Have a backup plan
I cannot stress how important this is to every aspiring event organizer. You cannot get cold feet on the big day. It’s important that you have a plan B to go along, if things go wrong with plan A. You need to be able to think on your own feet and fix up every missing piece. For an instance, if an animal party goes loose and some of the animals have gone missing, you need to be one step ahead and make sure that they are safely back in the cage and goes back to where they belong. There have always been situations where the bride has forgotten her brooch or in a professional event, the microphone isn’t working or the lights are not bright enough. You need to be on your toes when these happen and have quick fixes.Behind every successful event, there’s always an event planner who hasn’t slept in days. You have to choose the right vendors, be adaptable to changes, forecast the weather and make sure your guests are warm and comfortable. At the end of the day, it will all be worth it, when you see your guests smiling and enjoying the event.
