You’ve heard it many times before.

“If you build it, they will come”.

Finding clients for your event planning business is always easier said than done.

If you’re like me, hearing another event planning expert tell you to go out and network to find clients probably makes you want to scream in frustration. Is networking going to find you clients and book your schedule solid? Possibly, BUT network marketing relies heavily on having a large network to start with or the ability to charm your way into selling your services (introverts need not apply!).

Did you know the average cost of a wedding in the US is $26,984? This means with the right marketing strategy you could be bringing in a large chunk of event revenue!

But what happens if you don’t have a large following, are new to the industry and are not comfortable selling your services on the drop of a hat to every single person you meet?

That brings us to this list of 140+ websites where you can list your event planning business to bring the clients to you.

If you’re ready to ditch the sage old advice and start implementing techniques that actually work, this list is your best starting point.

Social networks

Social networks are yet another great option for marketing your event planning business. These are online communities filled with potential customers with a problem you can solve. Whether you are sharing information about your business or actively seeking clients, your social media posts need to be value-packed to provide clients with a reason to connect with you. Try to offer event planning tips, trends, ideas, special offers and updates on your business.  The more helpful your posts, the more likely they are to be shared and expand your reach. Some platforms to get you in front of clients includes:

Facebook

According to Similar web Facebook is the number 1 social traffic source for most news websites. The same is true for many small businesses and the very reason why you should have a Facebook page for your business and be active in Facebook groups. This is one of the best social media platforms for finding clients for your event planning business.
