» WeddingWire’s 2009 Bride’s Choice Awards

Congratulations to the recipients of the 2009 Bride’s Choice Awards! This new annual award program, launched at the beginning of the week, is unlike other award programs in our industry in which winners are selected by the company.  This year’s winners were determined exclusively by recent newlyweds from the WeddingWire community through survey results and reviews.  This year’s high-performing winners represent the top three percent of WeddingWire’s vendor community.

We want to thank all the winners for their hard work and dedication to the wedding industry!

Remember…reviews are one part of the nomination process, so don’t forget to invite your 2009 clients to review your services on WeddingWire in order to put you one step closer to being eligible for 2010 Bride’s Choice Awards!  Simply visit the Marketing section of your WeddingWire account to invite your past clients to review your services.

» Newly Enhanced Vendor Portfolio

In my recent post I talked about the importance of using images to build out your WeddingWire Storefront.  Well, now you will find it much easier to do so!  With the newly enhanced Vendor Portfolio, your WeddingWire online image gallery, you can:

  1. Save Time: Upload multiple images at the click of a mouse!
  2. Get Organized: Click and drag images to put them in the order YOU want on your Storefront.
  3. Tag your images: Simply choose a description or keyword “tag” to categorize your images, making them easier to share.

And in case you need even more incentive to start posting images, we will soon be publishing all tagged images to the Ideas section for brides to find you!  Brides will be able to search the Ideas section images and save their favorite images to their account.  And with your business name linked to all of your tagged images, this serves as yet another way to get your business name out there and reach brides!

Visit your Vendor Portfolio today and let the uploading, organizing, and most importantly tagging begin!
