I haven't seen any discussion of it in a while. I know most of you do pretty well with strictly word of mouth, and I have been doing OK with WOM as well, but I can't help but wonder if a little bit of money in just the right spot wouldn't do wonders....
Has anyone had any success at all? I don't think I want to do paid Facebook advertising. I've recently found out about a few small time things like a Catholic Church bulletin and a community newsletter that I'll probably check out. Also those coupon books?
I also wonder if a few grand spent on a full page in something like Baltimore Magazine wouldn't be huge for me. I would raise my prices somewhat (they need to be raised anyway) and I'd think it could potentially book me 10 weddings. I also wonder if I should do something smaller all year long or a huge full page like two months a year. Then I wonder, do I do that in the winter? Do I do it just before Spring and Fall? People are planning and booking way shorter nowadays I think.
Sorry for the rambling. Any thoughts on the matter at all will be appreciated.
