Why use a social networking site???
~ It’s FREE advertising. Where else can you get this much exposure by spending 30 minutes a day posting photos and comments about your latest wedding.
~ The more a bride sees your name, the more familiar she will become with you, and the more likely she will contact you.
~ Nearly half of all Americans have joined at least one social media network. If you can connect to a fraction of these potential customers, you boost your sales.
