What is your current pricing? - Our current pricing is $325 paid upfront giving vendors 12 months of coverage (*note some regions may have increased pricing or will be prorated to a certain end date*)
How many inquiries and bookings are your vendors seeing related to Wedding Pioneer? - Not all featured vendors share booking data with us and/or tracks inquiries & bookings. We honestly don’t have a great way to track vendor bookings. This is mainly due to the fact that we just started focusing more on vendor additions to our website. We hear from our vendors quite often that they love the traffic they are receiving through Wedding Pioneer and book weddings through traffic coming to our website. We are first a photographer-based website, but because the Wedding Industry is mostly photographer focused (pun not intended), couples search out the photographer first. Since we target the non-traditional bride, you will be one of the first vendors they will see. We also keep in good contact with our photographers, letting them know who our featured vendors are for recommendations. *Please note, we cannot guarantee bookings*
What marketing techniques do you use? - we run continual paid promotions through Instagram, Google, and sporadically, Facebook. We are very strategic regarding the times we "ramp up" promotions based on engagement statistics.
What sets you apart from the other feature accounts/wedding directories? - 1. Our photographers/vendors are hand-selected based on rigorous standards. We do not accept everyone who applies, in fact, our main source of featured photographers are ones that we have searched for and reach out to. We limit our regional offering to 12 photographers and 12 vendors as to not overwhelm our couples/clients. 2. We promote locally, meaning our SEO and paid promotions are focused on each region/location. This is why we are having so much success with bookings for our photogs/vendors! We all love the crazy fun elopements in far off places, but when it comes down to it, wedding photographers & especially vendors make money when they book locally - - and that's our PRIMARY focus.
Is my annual payment all I have to pay? - Yes! We don't make a profit off any of your bookings. We are strictly a marketing website. You pay for featured space on our website...we bring your ideal client to you.
How long of a commitment do I have to make? - your annual payment covers you for 12 months. There are no refunds should you choose to pull out of Wedding Pioneer. If you no longer wish to be a featured photographer before the 12 month period expires, please inform us per our contract.
How much website traffic do you receive? - On average, we receive over 200+ daily visitors. These numbers continue to increase with time.
What your payment covers;
featured space on one of our regional webpages under the vendor seciton (see our Kansas City region for an example)
