One of the most important things in business is networking. On Wednesday, February 4th four members of our staff attended a Marketing 101 seminar put on by Forever Bride.
Forever Bride was established in 2010 and is a great resource for brides and grooms as well as vendors.
“We want to create a sense of community within the wedding industry, where there is a certain level of respect and support among local businesses,” says Ashley Hawks, Vice President of Forever Bride. “The Forever Bride Association unites like-minded vendors who uphold the highest standards of professionalism and service.”
"The seminar helped us understand part of the larger picture in marketing," said one attendee. "Ashley Hawks pointed out how important including video in both your website and your email among many other useful tips."
In addition to the wonderful Ashley and Jenny of Forever Bride, we were given the opportunity to meet a wide variety of wedding vendors. Make sure to become a V.I.B and check the vendor's V.I.B. Deal.
