This year has been a very different year for me. Despite taking off the first month and a half, January and February, I’ve been seen a huge rise in inquiries coming through my website.
I don’t advertise in any magazine or publication, I do have an ad in the Knot.com, but all my web traffic comes from either Google.com, Yahoo.com, or the new Bing.com. I haven’t paid for printed advertising in over a year, I’ve stopped attending the Houston Bridal Extravaganza Show, and have really not spent any money in advertising for a while now.
I continue t0 advertise with the Knot.com, one because they did not listen to my request to cancel my subscription, and two because their advertising is actually working to drive approximately 30 visitors to my site per month.
Despite the economy being so bad and Me taking a whole month and a half off to do some much needed home remodeling/upgrades, I would say business is doing better than last year.
I’ve been completely booked all year since Valentine’s day and if it wasn’t for a cancellation this past Saturday, I would have had to celebrate my daughter’s birthday on a Sunday.
So this weekend was very relaxing at home with the family and invited some friends to come over and celebrate my oldest daughter’s 6th birthday.Â Would you believe it? No loud music was involved. :)
We had a blast! We rented out one of those water slide moonwalks and all the kids loved it. They did not stop playing in it the entire time we had it rented. Since they arrived early, even I was able to jump in there and have some fun with my two girls! Those times are so few in my life that I was able to really take them in and be grateful to God for such beautiful girls and for such an opportunity to be able to spend a Saturday with the people whom we love.
This Friday and Saturday, it’s back to weddings. I have two weddings, back to back and I look foreword to entertaining and creating beautiful smiles on the guests of my clients!
