As busy wedding and event professionals, you probably don’t have a ton of free time – if any! With everything on your plate, it can be hard to find the time to be creative with your business. Whether you’re looking for emerging trends in the wedding industry, trying to stay up to date with industry leaders or just thinking about new ways to make your customers happy, you need the right tools to access all that information quickly and efficiently.
Many entrepreneurs and small business owners have the same problems; you’re expected to be in-the-know about all aspects of your business, but you rarely have the time to keep up with it all. Luckily for you, there are plenty of online tools and apps to make your life easier!
If you want to be creative but still get everything done, use these online tools to save time!
Pulse – Use the Pulse app to pull all your favorite news sources into one custom stream. You’ll keep your finger on the “pulse” of what’s going on with your favorite websites, publications and news sources. It’s easy to use on your phone or tablet, so you can quickly look through your stream when you have a few extra minutes on the go.
Pinterest – Your business may already be using Pinterest to add your own business’ images to get more backlinks to your website, but you can also use Pinterest as a quick and easy trend spotting tool! Follow your friends in the industry (or even WeddingWire!) for wedding inspiration, and follow WeddingWireEDU to easily scan trends in the business and tech world.
Google Analytics – If you aren’t already signed up on Google Analytics, it’s time to start. Google Analytics allows you to track traffic on your website and blog and see more information about your visitors, what pages they visit, and how long they stayed on your site. You’ll see which areas are performing well and which areas need improvement so you can increase web traffic and conversions. The best part: it’s free!
