As an event planner looking to boost your client base, having a strong email marketing strategy is crucial. By capturing the email addresses of website visitors, you can nurture potential clients and showcase your expertise even if they haven't reached out for a consultation yet. In this article, we will explore three effective emails that will help you book more event planning clients.

The Power of Email Marketing

Email marketing is a highly effective tool that should not be underestimated in your marketing efforts. It allows you to stay in touch with potential clients and build a relationship with them over time. While many event planners are familiar with the concept, not all have a strategy in place for when someone joins their email list.

This is where the magic happens.

Once a potential client signs up to your list, you have the opportunity to convince them why they should hire you. This goes beyond sending promotional emails or a boring newsletter. You need to provide value. And that's where the Email List Welcome Series comes in.

The Email List Welcome Series

The Email List Welcome Series is a sequence of 3-5 emails that you send to potential clients when they join your list. This series serves to introduce your company, solve a problem they have, provide relevant content, and highlight your expertise. It's a powerful tool to turn potential clients into actual clients.

Setting up this welcome email series is easy with email management systems like Flodesk or MailChimp. These programs allow you to automate your emails, ensuring that new clients receive them promptly.

But what should you include in this series? Let's dive into the three most effective welcome emails that will help you book more event planning clients.

1. The Welcome and Thank You Emails

The first email in the series should welcome the new subscriber, express gratitude for their interest, and provide them with a quick overview of what they can expect as a member of your mailing list. Additionally, this email can offer a free download related to their event planning needs.

For example:

Hi Sarah,

Thank you for requesting a copy of "10 Questions to Ask Before Booking a Wedding Venue." You can download the checklist below.

Here at the Event Certificate, we specialize in simplifying the wedding planning process. Over the next few days, you can expect to receive a couple of emails from us with tips and recommended tools that we think you might find useful as you prepare for your big day.

2. The Problem and Solution Emails

In the second email, you have the opportunity to showcase your expertise and knowledge. Share a problem that your potential clients might be facing and offer a solution. This builds trust and positions you as a valuable resource in their event planning journey.

For example:

Hi Sarah,

I recently came across a comment on TheKnot.com about Seating Arrangements for Large Weddings, and I thought this might be of interest to you as well. In fact, I was intrigued by the idea I recently used with a couple where we used seating arrangements as an ice breaker at their wedding.

At our company, we specialize in working with brides to organize wedding logistics, such as seating arrangements and RSVP card collection for their big day. So I've put together a list of ideas that brides can use to solve any seating arrangement dilemma.

3. The Soft Sell Emails

Once you've welcomed a client to your list and provided them with value, it's time to gently encourage them to connect with you and discuss their event. This email should focus on engaging them in a conversation and understanding their specific needs.

For example:

Hey Sarah,

I've sent you a couple of emails over the last few days, and I wanted to reach out to see if you had any thoughts, feedback, or questions.

Have you already booked a venue? If there's anything in particular that you would like to know before signing a venue contract to ensure you're not paying the dreaded "wedding tax," be sure to let me know.
