Work, work, work, isn’t that the short story of most event planners’ lives? Aren’t we always looking for the most accurate, quickest and effortless (if that’s even possible) way to plow through those piles of work on our desks. With, of course, the ultimate goal being completion! Sure, once we’re finished it just means moving on to and tackling the next task. But completion all the same.
Online Event Planning – Now is the Time!
Since the advent of Google (and other search engines), we’ve taken our time as an industry, but it’s safe to say we have definitely embraced researching and working online. We used the arrival of Google and online event planning to test the waters. You know, get a sense of things and feel comfortable, dip our toe in. Personally speaking, I would initially use the internet and Google for portions of work, a bit here and a bit there… but never the entire shabang. I am an “old dog new tricks” kind of girl and in my mind, I needed the personal touch. Our industry, now like the rest of the corporate world, includes the World Wide Web. We now include it in our planning and for so many of us it is the first stop for research and work.
Online Event Planning – Yes!
As I have said in previous blogs, an event planner’s job entails a great deal, including a load of organization and a ton of work. I know we are not alone in the “piles of work” department but that to-do list constantly seems endless. Online event planning really can and does mean different things to different people. In our industry, online event planning companies take us from A-Z. They in fact do assist with researching, planning and executing the smaller tasks to the bigger undertakings.
Online Event Planning – Easy is the Word…
There are countless first rate online event planning companies out there that can be utilized and will aid and support you with your planning. My recommendation always is to sketch out some time to assess your situation; what you are in fact looking for and what you figure you will need and use the online planning site(s) for. I don’t doubt that you will find an abundance of web sites that fit with your criteria.
Taking the time to review your online planning needs will make choosing the right company or companies for your personal situation all that much easier!
