Gaining Publicity :: Tips for Wedding Planners

Wednesday, November 26, 2008

wedding publicity and prOf all the topics that I get asked to address on The Smart Planner, publicity and PR probably comes up the most often.  It is a crucial part of a business plan and helps with building your image, getting your name out there and raising brand awareness.  That said, there is no magic wand to success in any industry and no one advertisement, media placement, or big name client will open the door to everything you want. 

To help navigate the murky waters of publicity, I'm thrilled that wedding publicist Leila Khalil from Be Inspired Public Relations has agreed to be a guest expert on The Smart Planner.  We'll be featuring insights from Leila on what PR is and what it's not, what to look for when hiring a publicist, some DIY tips for those of you who may not yet be at the point of bringing a publicist on, etc.

Leila's advice will be short and sweet and we'll feature her posts sporadically, so if you're not yet subscribed to The Smart Planner, be sure to do so (in a reader or via email) so that you don't miss out on anything she has to share.

Do you have any burning questions about publicity or public relations that you'd like to see addressed? If so, leave a comment on this post or send an email to info{at} and we'll add it to our list of topics to tackle.  We can't guarantee that every question will get answered, but we want to make sure that what is shared is helpful and beneficial to the professional wedding planning community.
