Steps to create a party planner website

  1. Decide Your Niche

Just like you need a plan to throw a great party, you need to have a plan before building your party planner website. You need to make a decision on several things and prepare some materials to put on your website.

The first thing you need to do is to decide on your niche market. What kind of party that your party planning website focuses on? There are many kinds of parties: wedding, birthday, graduation, reunion, and so on. Having a niche, or focus, can help you to decide other things, such as what kind of services you offer on your website, the name of your website, and so on.

If you are still unsure about the niche of your party planner websites, you can always look to another online party planner and take a look at their websites. This can help you to find many party ideas websites. Take a note about their niche and the services they offer. You can always learn many things by looking at others.

  1. Create a Brand

Once you have decided on your niche, it is time to create a brand. A brand is a story or emotional feeling that you want people or your customers to feel in their mind when they hear about your business. One way to create a brand is by telling your own story. You can tell your reason or story behind your decision to start a party planner website. Make sure to connect your brand with your niche. For example, you decide to focus on a wedding party event. You might have an experience of attending a great wedding party and want other people to feel what you feel. Or, you might be thinking that a wedding is a sacred and important event of one’s life and want to help them to have the best day of their lives when the time comes.

  1. Prepare The Materials

Once you have decided on your niche and created a brand, it is time to prepare some materials related to your niche, such as pictures, icons, videos, and so on, to be placed on your party planner websites.

You can create the materials that you need. If you have photography and graphic design skills, it is a good idea to create the materials and add a touch of your personality.

You can also use stock and free to use materials. Many websites offer stock images and videos that you can add to your website.

Once you have all the materials you needed, it is time to start creating your party planner websites.

To have a great party planner website, you need to have several features or sections to your websites. In general, your party planner website needs to be able to tell your brand, communicate your services and/or products, and serve as the place for your customers to ask questions.

The first section you need to add to your website is the About Us section. This section serves as the place where you put the story of your brand. Other than stories of your brand, you can also incorporate details of your business, such as niche, and the achievements of your party planner websites. For example, you might add information about how many parties your party planner website has hosted or the demographic of your customers.

You can also add some images, like what Snobb did to their websites above, by using rows or columns sections. You can learn more about adding and deleting sections in our help center.

The next feature you need to have in your party planner websites is the Contact Us section. This section is crucial as all your efforts of creating a brand and listing services or products will be for nothing if customers cannot reach you to order or ask questions. Fortunately, most of the templates from Strikingly have a Contact Us section built from the start. However, you still need to add some touch to it by yourself. For example, you need to provide an email address, phone number, or link your social media account in the Contact Us section.

Next, you will need a section that lists services and/or products that your party planner websites offer. This section is the bread and butter of your website. Usually, party plan websites do not only list the prices of their products or services but also a detailed description of them. It is a good idea to incorporate images or videos to your products and/or services section to make them look more stunning. Make sure to optimize every image that you use to get the best result.

Lastly, it is always a good idea to start a blog on your website. Having a blog to post your content can be helpful to grow your online presence. A regularly scheduled content can help you to gain an online presence by creating authority. Moreover, you know the power of great content. A great, viral, and SEO-friendly content can make your party events websites be known by many people. Through content, you can also educate your current and potential customers about your business and persuade them to use your products and/or services. In short, having a blog is a good way to create and grow your online presence.
