Every week, we ask members of our Facebook group questions relevant to business and the wedding/events industry.
This week we asked: In the wedding business there are so many places to advertise. What paid advertising outlets have you seen actual success with? If you don’t want to name names, you can give us a general idea.
In case you missed it, here are some of the answers:
Tonia Arsenault Adleta Wedding wire, hands down.
Kelly Hunt Local trade shows and local phone books. The area I live in is still very old school.
B Wilson Mua I actually dropped all my other advertising once I starting using Google. I get tons more traffic to my site I am very happy with the result.
Necoh Brewington-Mitchell The Knot
Christy Toney The Knot is a must… Depending on the time of year, you will get tons of views and inquiries here. Wed Alert and GetMarried I will say helped my Google rankings, but direct traffic from those sites, nope.
Deirdre Ryanphotography So far I have non(my marketing funds are none at the moment) BUT I am interested in knowing what’s the best out there…. i guess i need to find some good cameras for youtube.
Christy Toney I must point out the power of a blog… I would say if mktg funds are low, create a blog and nurture it like you would a delicate plant. Make sure you title your posts with well searched tags for your topic and they become little calling cards that come up in searches month after month, year after year… Your site will come up in both web and image searches. Exceptional content is the least expensive marketing plan you can implement.
Ruthie Turner I’ve done a few bridal shows, no returns. Did some advertising with Get Married – no returns. Just started advertising with WeddingWire in August, we’ll see how that goes. This is an area where I’m struggling myself.
Sandy Podborny You’re welcome Ruthie Turner. And Christy is right (Hi Christy Toney! Don’t worry about numbers…just put up some interesting, relevant information consistently and they will come. And sticking in a little blurb every once in awhile about you, maybe what your are actually doing as a person trying to run a business, or your life around the business, whatever, can make for interesting reading.
What do you think is the most successful advertising channel for you?
