31 Jan How You Could Be Earning More Money as an Event Planner
Event planning is a fast paced and incredibly competitive profession. There’s always a higher position to strive for, or a higher figure to earn. It takes a lot of hard work and dedication to book exclusive clients and to make the big bucks, but here are a few ways you could be earning more money as an event planner.
If you’re not booking the clients that you’re chasing, then consider your image and your brand. Is your portfolio impressive? Have you made a collection of all of the events that you’ve organized to showcase to your future potential clients? Do you act and look the part when you meet with these potential clients? Ensure that your portfolio and image resembles the kind of event planner that these clients would be happy to hand over all of their control to.
Know your worth as an Event Planner
It takes time to build up a loyal client base but don’t underestimate how badly clients will want their events to be perfect. Clients will be hesitant about giving their money to an event planner with limited experience, however, they will be more than happy to invest good money into the right planners with a good portfolio and references. Know your worth and set your pricings to a higher standard if you have experience behind you.
You’ll never get what you want if you don’t ask for it
Sometimes it takes the confidence to stand up and ask for a pay rise. It shows confidence and ambition to move up in your career and to keep working hard. If the answer is no, ask why and keep working towards being better so that next time the answer is yes.
Have a contagious energy
If you love what you do and you are passionate about event planning, people will notice. Throw your energy into your work and the projects that you take on will become a reflection of this! This will draw more clients to your waiting list, and soon enough you can increase your prices.
