Is Your Profile Ready for Engagement Season?

Halloween is over, the smell of pumpkin pie is in the air, and if you listen closely, some stores might even be playing Christmas music. Do you know what that means? Engagement season is just around the corner! Here are a few simple things ways you can make your Texoma Bride Guide profile stand out:

Eye-Catching Hero Image:

Couples will spend less than 3 seconds scanning your profile page on The Texoma Bride Guide to decide whether they’re interested in you. The number one way to grab their attention and create a positive first impression is to use an image that really sells your brand and business as the first thing they see.

Make Every Photo Count:

One of the very first things couples look for when they’re scoping out potential vendors is photos of their recent work. Give them what they want and update your gallery with high-resolution, high-quality photos of your work from 2018 weddings. Real wedding photos are great but we definitely recommend that you choose images that only show off your work and style.

Curate Your Profile for SEO:

One of the best ways to connect with couples is by telling them your story. We recommend aiming for at least 300 words in your profile text. If you’re looking for some inspiration, consider including these in your description:

  • What couples love the most about working with you
  • Your company mission and values
  • What makes you unique and different from your competition
  • Why you love your couples and their weddings

We love when our vendors contribute content for us to use on our blog. You could write an informative article about your area of expertise and submit it to us using our content submission form. If you’re looking for ideas, we’ve included a couple writing prompts on that page. Being published on another site isn’t just good for showing your expertise in your field, it’s also good for SEO. Having your site linked to from as many sites as possible shows your legitimacy as a business to the search engine robots!

One final tip: Remember to keep your social media up to date! Couples want to see high-quality, high-resolution photos that clearly showcase your products and services. It’s also a lot easier for us to feature your business on our social media channels if you’ve got fresh, high-quality pictures.
