The January issue of the Wedding Business Magazine is all about preparing yourself and your business for the year ahead and one of the most important things you can do is to take time out to not only look at what you want to achieve over the next 12 months, but what you achieved over the last 12 months too. Starting on a positive note is always so much better for the soul than starting on a sour note. I am excited to see what 2017 brings and I look forward to continuing to share our knowledge and experience wtih you through our magazine throughout the year.
So what’s in this issue of the magazine?
Social media is set to get bigger and better in 2017 and we chatted to Global Talent Director Monique Llewellyn of Vamp Collective about what it takes to be a Social Media Influencer. We got up close and personal with Harmony Walton of Bridal Bar who talked to us about branding, trends and putting together a marketing plan for 2017.
Our cover story is with the alternative wedding blogger, Kat Williams of Rock N Roll Bride, one of the biggest wedding blogs in the world. She talked to us about blogging in 2017, the latest trends and how social media has changed the face of blogging since she started in 2007, ten years ago.
We are welcoming some new columnists in 2017 which include Christina Scalera on WedLegal, Kellie Daab on WedExpert, Heather Waits on WedBiz and Sam Lloyd on WedGuru.
Our regular columns with Meghan Ely on WedPR, Kathy DalPra on WedSEO, Shannon DePalma on WedSocial, Heidi Thompson WedPromo, and Emma Etheridge on WedBiz are also packed with great advice and tips as per usual.
The images from this issue of the magazine were styled by a student from the New Zealand Academy of Wedding and Event Planning, Kim Houston of Take a Vow Weddings & Events and photographed by Jeremy Hill Photography.
