Thanks for taking the time to visit our website and for your interest in spending your precious advertising budget, on a listing with Budget Savvy Bride.
Over a 2 year period we had the great pleasure in researching, designing and planning our business, officially going live 10th April 2011. While conducting our research it came to our attention that most business owners were expressing the same concerns – the world economic situation creating a certain amount of fear for small business owners, increases in daily business expenses (petrol, electricity etc), rising advertising costs, not knowing which is the right advertising platform to spend their dollars on – tradeshows, print, TV or radio advertising, just to name a few.
It is these issues that have driven us to build a business that will not only assist our advertising partners in being more visible to their target audience, with an “online listing”, but why we have also chosen to include an “off line marketing support” division, to assist these same businesses in some of the other ways they can promote and grow without having to spend a fortune.
Given the current economic climate, our first point we would like to make and probably the most important is that “advertising is a must if you wish to stay at the forefront of your industry”. With less people spending money on your products, wouldn’t it make sense to increase your efforts to ensure they are spending their dollars with you and not your competitor?
Of course we don’t disagree with the need to reevaluate your spending when times are a little tough, but instead of reducing your advertising expenses you should be revising your phone contracts, look at purchasing in bulk to take advantage of a buying discount, shopping around for a cheaper freight company etc.
It would also be irresponsible of us not to include the need to reevaluate your advertising strategies, ensuring that what you are paying for is working for you. Here are a few points to consider when looking at where to spend your dollars going forward.
- Don’t think of your dollars just paying another invoice, advertising should be considered a vital part of your sales team.
- Make sure you can measure your results v money spent.
- Choose a company that is positive, proactive and is willing to provide you with a guarantee that they will value your business.
The good news is we can, will and want to do all these things and more, for you and your business.
- We will not invoice you and then forget about you until it’s time to renew your ad.
- We will provide you with a monthly report detailing your stats, as well as our marketing activity helping to increase traffic to your business.
- Yes we are less than 12 months old, but we are also have a huge amount of confidence in the product we have built and appreciate that we need to be very proactive to ensure we continue to grow. We want to earn your trust and to show you that we are serious we are willing to offer you a guarantee that will surely demonstrate that we value your business.

Why advertise with an online directory compared to other forms of advertising?
- You have access to an unlimited distribution, unlike print advertising who are restricted to the number of copies they run each issue, restricting how many people read your ad.
- You are visible to not only those in your local area or the reach of radio, print, billboards etc but also those that are located around the country and the rest of the world, that are planning their dream wedding in your serviced territory.
- Your listing is flexible, as we are not in hard copy you have the ability to change your listing as you change your business to adapt to your customers needs.
- We work for you 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.
- Your clients can send you an email at any time and they will receive a friendly reply to say you will be in touch within (3) business days.
- Did you know by listing on directory websites you also have a huge advantage over you competitors, as you are creating numerous “real” back links to your website, increasing your Google rankings?
- Promotion via our social media platforms as well as your own doubling your visibility to that audience.
- For those that are still to venture into an online presence with their business, this is an ideal way to do so without having to invest thousands of dollars in hosting, domain names, website development, ongoing maintenance and that is all before you start to think about what you want your website actually look like or learning how to work it to your advantage.
- By being online our business expenses are much lower than those of our off line collegues, therefore our cost to you is considerably lower. Our packages start from $99.00 (+GST) for a full 12 months. That is less than $9.10 a month!
