Ultimately the TWN website will only be beneficial if its visible. In order for the TWN to grow and thrive it will take take effort and cooperation of all its active members. Your business listing on the TWN is FREE, however, we do request a link exchange.
In order for the TWN website to serve its members effectively, it will be necessary to increase the Search Engine Position of the TWN website. So in order to better serve you we request that you place a small amount of code at the bottom of the home page of your business website.
The code contains two links:
Tucson Wedding – will link to the TWN blog.
Network – will link to the Tucson Wedding Network home page.
This will help to build “relevance” or “weight” as seen by Google in the Tucson Wedding Market. The higher TWN ranks, the more power your TWN business link will have for your business.
The link as it will appear on your page is listed below, please contact Michael at email@example.com to have the code sent to you. (it is important that the code be on your homepage as “relevance” drops significantly after the homepage. The text can be any size you like, however, we recommend that you make it BOLD and display it proudly).
Once the above code has been placed on your website, contact Marc Summersett or Michael McCune so that the links functionality can be verified, and then your business listing will be added to the front page of the TWN website under the Active Members list.
Let the networking begin…
Tucson Wedding Network is a group of local wedding professionals who have connected for the common purpose of increasing the professionalism of the local wedding market while continuing to build and grow our own businesses through sharing and learning…
Hello TWN… our mission is clear, and as we continue to grow as a network it is vital that we keep our mission statement in mind and stay on track.
It is important to understand and remember that for a networking group to be effective the group must be comprised of active members and participants. So ultimately the TWN will be broken down into two parts… Active members and non-active members.
For those who desire to gain the most benefits from the group it is essential to be an active member. Active members will have a membership card, certificate of membership, access to all network meetings, and will have a business listing under membership on the Tucson Wedding Network website.
Requirements for participation as an active member are relatively simple and straightforward. Since you cannot network effectively if you’re not there… all members will be required to make at least 50% of the network meetings within a year and cannot miss more than two meetings in a row.
As an active member you must be in the business of working directly with brides and grooms. If your business serves wedding vendors rather than brides and grooms you will not be eligible as an active member, however, you may be eligible to participate as a sponsor.
Proof of eligibility is also simple and straightforward requiring only a business website and a professional business card.
As space may be limited within the various venues hosting our meetings, we want to limit the group to dedicated wedding professionals. We do not want this to be a general business networking group. If your business doesn’t primarily deal with Brides and Grooms, we humbly ask you not to join as a member but consider perhaps a sponsorship. (More to come on this.) There are exceptions of course and we will take them on a case by case basis as we are open to new and innovative ideas.
We want to share this with everyone before the meeting so we don’t waste time of those that don’t meet the basic requirements. At the meeting we will go into detail on the two types of membership. Active and Non-Active among other things. Thanks and if you have any questions please contact Marc (Marc@CEentertainment.com) or Michael (Michael@WeddingsofDistinction.com)
Have you seen this really cool wedding video yet?
I love to see how creative wedding professionals can be, and raising the standards for cool wedding videos is exactly what David Robins did in this video.
The wedding couple, Joya and Emre, really wanted something unique that that would be fun to watch for a lifetime. They also wanted something that would showcase more than just the two of them but would include their wedding guests and friends as well.
They really accomplished that with this video, which has already been viewed more than 693,000 times as of this writing.
It is a really fun parody on the Black Eyed Peas – “The Time (Dirty Bit)”. Hopefully it will inspire all of our Tucson Wedding Professionals to let their imaginations run amok and help their brides and grooms reach new heights at their Tucson wedding event.
Not to mention, raising the bar can create a lot of referral business. David Robbin’s phone has been ringing off the hook with new business since this video was released only a few months ago.
Keep it fresh, keep it exciting, build your business.
Tucson Arizona is a fantastic city for hosting a wedding. With its year around climate, clear skies, beautiful sunsets and gorgeous mountain views it’s no wonder that Tucson is one of the country’s top spots for destination weddings.
Tucson is also home to a variety of businesses that specialize in helping brides and grooms get the most out of their wedding and make their wedding day visions a reality.
The Tucson Wedding Network is open to all wedding professionals who cater to Tucson’s brides and grooms, and the purpose of the group is to share, learn and grow and ultimately serve and provide the best service possible for those planning their wedding in Tucson Arizona.
Until now vendors catering to the local Tucson wedding market have had very few opportunities to share their experience and learn from the experience of others, but we are hoping that the Tucson Wedding Network will change all that and offer an outlet of exchange that will not only benefit the local wedding vendors, but ultimately benefit brides and grooms planning their weddings here in the Tucson area.
We are very excited by the overwhelming response that we have received and within just a few short months the Tucson Wedding Network Facebook group has already grown to more than 100 members, and our very first meeting slated for August 15 already has more than 40 RSVPs.
We invite any and all wedding professionals serving the local Tucson market to join our group. Our goal is to make it fun as well as educational and it is an excellent opportunity to meet and network with people who are of like mind or at least of like business.
The Tucson Wedding Network should also prove to be an excellent resource for brides and grooms to conveniently find and locate any and all of the services they will need for their wedding.
Please stay tuned for updates as new information about The Tucson Wedding Network becomes available.
