- Fill your Winter Months! In a room of 45 vendors, Brides on a Dime Expo Director Melanie Cameron asked how many vendors had even 8 weekends booked during the winter. Zero hands raised. How many of St. Anthony's Bridal's 12 winter weekends are booked? 10. How do we know? Brides on a Dime Expo Mailing/Phone List! 18 brides on our list are marrying on 1/1/13. Are you booked New Years? 94 brides on our list are marrying before 3/1/13. These brides are looking for deals, and you're looking to book December, January and February. Did we mention? 90 brides on our list are marrying in March!
- Elevate Yourself above the Competition! Brides on a Dime Expo is a fundraiser directly benefiting St. Anthony's Bridal, a 501(c)3 nonprofit helping brides afford a beautiful wedding. It makes sense to partner with an organization whose clients will give its partners business. All of our organization's clients are brides. And, all of your bridal clients will be attracted to the mission of a bridal nonprofit because they are brides and they see that you're giving back within the industry.
- We Target the $10k Bride! We're not pulling in the $30,000 wedding reception clients, we're honest and forthright because we believe that brides on a budget of $10,000 or less truly want to be taken seriously and will respond with a closing contract because a vendor takes their budget seriously and treats them with dignity.
Melanie R. Cameron, President of St. Anthony's Bridal, presented a talk at the Women's Wedding Network October, 2011 Luncheon. The talk, "Brides on a Dime," tackled every vendor's "nightmare" the bride with a sub-zero budget asking for your services.
Summary of Talk Given to Women's Wedding Network:
$100 for photography. $1100 for food and beverage for 100 people. We all get the calls or emails, and as wedding professionals, most of us don't even waste our time returning them.
Stop the dresses.
Brides will stop on a dime... if you give them a hand OR if you give them a deal.
Melanie Cameron reveals the golden referrals brides on a dime have given to brides of gold.
Materials from the talk are available upon request.
In this economy, Donald Trump and so many high-ball entrepreneurs have proven that giving back is the golden ticket.
Brides on a Dime Expo is the perfect charitable contribution to make! You present your services and products to your clients - brides - building more business for yourself, AND you're promoting a cause at the same time!
