Here are the 4 key elements we share in this reel:

Key Element#1: Event Planning 101

Create event planning checklists. Using checklists for each part of the party planning process will guarantee that each party is well-executed properly from start to finish. 

For useful checklist templates you can use before, during, and after the event, download our resource, the Event Planning 101 Checklist.

 Creating those amazing experiences and being a part of that experiences is an honor! 

Key Element #2: Effective Marketing

Planning ahead is key to effectively marketing events. Decide which parties you’ll host and packages you'll offer a few months before the season starts, as well as any promotions or discount codes you’ll want to run.

Then, create a calendar of events. Decide how soon you'd like to start promoting each event and be sure to add this information to your calendar, too! A good rule of thumb is to start promoting an event at least one month in advance.

Key Element#3: Provide an Amazing Customer Experience

 Exceeding customer expectations is what a great guest experience is all about.

It’s a good idea to create a timeline for the party and communicate the "order of events" with your guest.

This not only helps your team stay on track throughout the day, but it also lets the guest know that you run a tight ship and care about providing them with the best and most seamless experience possible.

Key Element #4: Prioritize Follow-Up

Customer feedback is critical to your growth and improvement as a business.

Every holiday party or event you host is an opportunity to learn more about your customer. Email customers a feedback survey after the event and offer up a prize like gift cards.
