Absolutely. Sign up to our free wedding planning tools from the planning tools page or check out our inspirational blog which is full of tips, stories and real weddings. We hope you will find these useful! If you do have any questions about our site or would like any advice please do get in touch.
WHY SHOULD I ADVERTISE WITH WEDDINGPLANNER.CO.UK?
We’re designed and run by wedding suppliers so we understand your needs and know what’s required from both the perspective of the Couple and the Supplier. As a listed supplier you have the opportunity to be found by thousands of potential customers and receive cost-effective and timely enquiries to help you grow your business. Your Url in your profile is a "follow" link so your own SEO benefits from our high-ranking website. Our new booking system means you can now actually take bookings through an online wedding platform which is the first of its kind in the UK. In addition, you will have a detailed, search optimised profile to communicate your services to your target market.
HOW DO I MANAGE MY PROFILE AND RECEIVE ENQUIRIES FROM POTENTIAL CUSTOMERS?
Once you have registered with WeddingPlanner.co.uk, every aspect of your profile can be managed through the supplier dashboard including personal details, payment details and all other aspects of your profile. Please keep your login details secret.
HOW MUCH DOES IT COST?
It's free to register and create your profile. Depending on your category you either only pay for enquiries you receive from potential customers or you pay at set monthly amount. The price varies per category. Please see the supplier sign up page for pricing details.
CAN I LIMIT THE NUMBER OF ENQUIRIES I’M PREPARED TO RECEIVE?
Yes. You control how many enquiries you are willing to receive per week. You can manage this and change it at any time in the supplier dashboard. Once you have reached your maximum number of weekly enquiries, you will no longer show up in the listings until the following week. Remember if you don’t receive any enquiries on the pay-per-enquiry model then there is no cost.
WHAT'S THE DEAL WITH MY WEBSITE URL & CLICKS?
We offer all suppliers the option of including their own personal website URL in their profile. This may be of interest for SEO reasons or purely because you would like to push more relevant traffic to your website. For pricing details please see the table on the supplier sign up page as you will be charged for clicks to your own personal website if you are on the pay-per-enquiry model. Like the enquiry system you can set how many you are prepared to receive each week. No click = no cost. Please note the URL clicks are completely optional and can be turned on and off whenever you choose.
HOW FREQUENTLY WILL I BE BILLED?
For suppliers on our subscription model you are billed 30 days after you signed up. You are then billed every 30 days. You can cancel your listing and payments at any point in your dashboard. If you are on our pay-per-enquiry model you will be billed every time you have built up a spend of £15.00 based on the number of enquiries and clicks you have received. Your card details are held off-site through STRIPE, our third-party payment facility.
HOW DOES THE REVIEW SYSTEM WORK?
If a customer decides to leave a review and a star rating, you will have 48hours to challenge the review if you disagree with the reviewer’s comments. Wedding Planner will then investigate the review and form a decision on the legitimacy of the review. If a review has not been challenged after 48 hours, then the review and rating will become live.
WHAT IS THIS NEW BOOKING SYSTEM ALL ABOUT?
For the first time in the UK, you can now take bookings from couples through WeddingPlanner.co.uk. All you need to do is enroll for the booking system in your dashboard. Once you agree a booking with a couple, you use our contract creator to create the contract and invoice. You set the payment terms and then the couple can pay straight away by card (including amex). This new system offers more flexibility and security to couples while helping you to save time on your admin and bring you more business.
WHAT IF WEDDING PLANNER ISN'T FOR ME?
We understand that this platform won’t be for everyone but the great thing is you can give it a try and you have nothing to lose. If you sign up and create a profile, you are free to leave at any point. Please do contact us directly if you have any concerns. We are a small, friendly team and are here to help!
