Morning everyone! It’s only a month until Christmas Eve… I know! and once again I have slots free on my recommended supplier list for the coming month. December is one of the most popular months to sign up as a blog sponsor, as it means you’ll be a part of the blog in January when our visitor numbers double*.

*The English Wedding Blog had 70,000 page views in January 2015 – our usual visitor count is 30k per month!

All of my sponsors are handpicked. Applying is easy: get to know the blog and then email me: info@English-Wedding.com to introduce yourself and your business. Show me  your social media, send me your blog link. It’s likely I’m familiar with your business already; if not, I love meeting new people!

Hey everyone! I hope you’re having a brilliant day. I’m busy working on blog features and scheduling everything for May already (birthday month: eeeee!!) and wanted to quickly reach out to any wedding suppliers considering blog advertising.

I have half a dozen slots free from May; they’re only £50 per month and come with regular features to really give your business a push and get you noticed! The blog currently has more than 45,000 readers a month! If you’re interested, do read my media pack to find out more: http://english-wedding.com/wp-content/uploads/2011/01/Media-pack-2015.pdf

Every January there’s a rush of potential advertisers to wedding blogs. It’s one of my favourite New Year’s resolutions – because I’m very proud to be the owner of a wedding blog which works hard to bring together brides and suppliers. Advertising on the English Wedding Blog works.

I’ve been chatting to a few sponsors and suppliers over the last week or three, and this blog post has come from all the conversations we’ve had. I really hope it helps you with your advertising decisions. I’ll be brutally honest as I explain how and when wedding blog advertising works – and when it doesn’t.

1. Some tick boxes: the basics

Do you know what a wedding blog is?

I’m not kidding; some people still don’t know about blogs. This includes some small business owners, SEO companies working on behalf of suppliers, and even media and PR agencies. Venues are especially guilty! Sponsoring a blog won’t work if you don’t really get what they’re all about.

A quick note to wedding suppliers – I’ll be setting up any new blog sponsors for October over THIS weekend, so if you think you have the perfect product or service for English Wedding Blog readers, please get in touch.

English Wedding Blog readers are looking for elegant wedding ideas. We don’t like tacky, but we adore a bit of sparkle. If you have a handmade wedding product, you’ll be right up our street! And supporting small business is important too: couples are always looking for something unique. How will they find it? Maybe it’ll be from your appearances on English Wedding Blog!

Sponsorship – news & information

English Wedding Blog sponsorship has had a bit overhaul: it’s different from other wedding blogs because you have lots of control over your advertising. Here’s what you get:

  • A sidebar ad shown on a rotational basis, and NOT lost in a crowd with dozens of others
  • A whole page on English Wedding Blog dedicated to your business with images, links and contact information

This week I’ve popped my Bob the Builder hat on and am doing some construction work. Kinda… well to be honest it’s the web-building kind of construction work. Still counts!

Building a new area for the English Wedding blog

Wedding blogs in the UK are growing in number, in size and in popularity. The top blogs easily rival wedding magazines for readership, loyalty and quality of content.

More and more brides and grooms are switching on to wedding blogs as a new source of inspiration and somewhere to find alternative ideas for more personalised weddings.

Bringing brides and grooms and businesses together

I get a lot of enquiries from small wedding businesses about advertising on the English Wedding blog. As much as couples are searching for forward thinking wedding suppliers, those businesses are looking for a way to reach those couples and showcase their wares.

Traditional blog advertising works well on the big wedding blogs, the likes of Rock’n’Roll Bride, Rock My Wedding and Love My Dress. A sidebar ad on any of those will set you back – but it’s worth it to strengthen your brand and reach thousands of readers every day.
