Program Topic

How to Market to Millennials When You Aren’t One

One of the most challenging and exciting aspects of working in the wedding industry is that as we get older, our clients get younger. While this can be a fantastic way to keep up on the latest trends and technology, it can also lead to stress, anxiety and confusion about how to best attract new clients who are much younger than you are. In this workshop you will learn how to future-proof your marketing to attract Millennial couples as well as future generations.
