In the fast-paced and competitive world of the wedding industry, successful lead management is a key driver for businesses looking to thrive. For wedding venues and suppliers, the process of following up on enquiries is an art that requires finesse and strategic thinking.

Today, we’ll explore the crucial question: When should you stop following up with your wedding enquiries? And more importantly, we’ll shed light on how For Better For Worse (FBFW) is not just a wedding directory but a dedicated partner in enhancing your sales and marketing efforts.


The Persistence Dilemma: When to Stop Following Up

Initiating contact and responding promptly to enquiries is essential, but there comes a point where persistence can turn into pestering. There is a delicate balance between staying engaged and respecting the potential clients’ space.

It’s important to recognise signals such as unresponsiveness and closed-ended replies, as this would suggest, although initial contact was made by them, something may change in their plans.

Ghosting is a thing even in the world of weddings and this may happen because of a multitude of things. From sticker shock (out of budget) and overwhelmingness, to lack of information and long replies. It’s best to always understand you may have not been the right fit for the couple, or, just simply, your lead management needs looking at.

Ensure that your post enquiry journey is the perfect balance of a few things. Making your response soft and personal, but also to the point and clear. Answering as many questions that have been asked of you but also making sure your not being overwhelming in your information. It’s the perfect balancing act to converting those all-important leads.
