Over the past few months, I’ve put a lot of thought into how I want to advertise my business. Since I haven’t done any advertising up to this point, I had a lot to think through–when is the right time to start? Where should I advertise, and how? It is important to me to make sure I’m only putting my name (and my dollars) in places that share my values and, hopefully, that will help me reach clients with similar idea.
So! In weighing these things, the obvious choice to me of where to do my first-ever advertising was A Practical Wedding–a well written, thoughtful, and totally sane blog about wedding planning, marriage, and life in general.
To be honest, it wasn’t too hard of a decision–I’ve been in love with APW since I came across the site early in my own engagement. I still read it every day, reference it in conversation at least once a week, and, at some point, send the link to just about every couple I work with. Check out their About page for more detailed a rundown of their philosophy.
When I was planning a wedding myself, it was exactly the kind of community that I needed. Now, as a wedding vendor, who wouldn’t want to work with couples with a practical perspective on their wedding and their marriage? And I couldn’t be happier to be listed there among other amazing vendors who share the same philosophy!
