Wedding suppliers – new and old (I know most of the ‘oldies’ so I hope you won’t be offended… hee!) I need your help! And I’m offering free advertising on English Wedding Blog.
Free advertising on English Wedding Blog
Good morning folks and folkesses out there in wedding land, I hope you’re all well and sparkly and have your suncream on for later. What a fantastic week we’re having! I’ve been feeling inspired, not only by the sunshine but also by some of the wonderful people I have around me. One of whom (thanks Adam) mentioned something in an email about blogs, and advertising, which got me thinking about how blogs are growing and in some cases becoming very much like print wedding magazines.
I don’t think it’s cool to have too many advertisers or sponsors on a blog. I also don’t think it’s cool to run a blog as a business without real enthusiasm and passion behind it. What we do shouldn’t be all about money. Blogs’ initial appeal came from their independence, and from being able to promote and support independent wedding businesses and not just those who could afford advertising space. While most wedding blogs now earn money, there must be ways to continue that support for indie businesses, right?
The bit about you, and free ads
I’d like to offer three small wedding businesses a free advert on English Wedding Blog. I’m looking for different business types: jewellers, designers, videographers, possibly photographers (although I do have paying photography sponsors already, so you’ll have to be persuasive!) – anyone else starting out in the wedding industry who’d like a little free exposure. Crafty people – I’d love to hear from you.
What your free ad on English Wedding will be
You’ll get a small sidebar ad, below my main sponsors’ adverts. The slot will be for one month only, and your ad will be the same size as my other ads. It will show on every page of the blog (English Wedding gets 32,000 visitors a month) and on every page refresh (the blog gets 61,000 monthly page views). Any reader who clicks on your ad will go straight through to your website (or blog if you prefer).
