What sets you apart from other Event Planners and Services? I asked for ideas, of what do they offer besides their event services, this is what a few people said.
For some of us we have added services for some of us we do extra things in-between gigs. I asked this question in a Linkedin Group that I am a member of and found some very creative ideas.
Kim Rozell I offer make-up,hair, services for weddings and special events as well executive head shots for face book or any social media. HD TV or any time someone needs to look picture perfect and camera ready for the camera. We offer other services like eyelash extensions, eyebrows, consultations, Make-up party’s and Lessons
Itheria Hutson-Hollins -We offer Custom items, such as Custom Made/ hand crafted Invitations. Custom made/hand crafted CD covers for Wedding Favors, Wedding Programs – Fans – Silk florals. We also recommend vendors that we have worked with before and know the quality of their work. Such as Bakers – Photographers – Videographers – Musicians – DJ’s etc.
Varghese – We provide certain branding complimentary, when the client does branding and promotion of the event with them. Since we have in house facility for most of the event promotions and branding requirements.
Rich Reed • A new idea we are implementing this year is inviting the top 1500 people in our target group of cliental to join us for New Years Eve! Very nice response so far.
Sherri Broadnax • I’m an event planner at heart but when events are slow, I use my baking and cake decorating skills to promote my company by selling homemade desserts whole & by the slice. I also obtained my State of IL foodservice license to cater any small events, like home parties, showers, etc. Currently expanding my inventory to include small party rentals (linens, chafers, decor, etc.) Lastly, have been a dealer for Carlson Craft to offer invitations and accessories for events. Striving to be a 1-stop shop!
Latonya Washington,CEO • Besides planning I also host red carpet events or other functions that I am asked to moderate
Loretta Licata • Like may of the other comments in this discussion, IntaFood offer custom-made items in addition to our event management and cooking classes. This can be personalised favours or complimentary items such as bubbly, aprons, videographer or photographer services to complement our Food and Drink events.
I know when I first started out, producing my own events..I relied on a friend to help me – this was fantastic to guide me through. She was very happy to help on the day of the event..I gave her a very good recommendation a few times, just because she was willing to help me.
This list is a starting place, I believe other event planners got some ideas of which they could incorporate in their event planning businesses.
I hope it will give you some ideas to think about.
