Do Offbeat Bride Vendor Listings work? SPOILERS: YES!

We'll let our advertisers speak for themselves…

“Advertising on Offbeat Bride has been the best thing for my business.

Dollar for dollar, Offbeat Bride has consistently proven to be the best way to spend my advertising budget.

Several other potential advertisers over the years have contacted me asking “is it worth it?” … and every time I say definitely.

I see the most return on Offbeat Bride ads than any other source of advertising I do.

More than half of my brides come directly from Offbeat Bride.”

-Mike Allebach of Allebach Photography

Offbeat Bride was one of the first big investments I made in my photography business almost a decade ago, and it continues to be one of the best decisions I have ever made.  It is a decision I make year after year as I renew, time and time again.  

The fabulous, creative, original couples who contact me from Offbeat Bride are always some of the most fun of my year, and I'm stoked every time I see a couple found me through my Offbeat Bride listing.  

More than half of my inquiries from Offbeat Bride convert to bookings, and I've made my money back more than ten times over each year.  My business has absolutely seen return on investment from my Offbeat Bride advertising, both in income and in great events I truly love doing.

“From my vendor listing, I've booked over $20k in sales.

I have an 80% conversion rate for Offbeat inquiries — 4 out of 5 couples who inquired decided to hire me.

Packages booked range from $2300 – $9300, with the average at ~$5400.

As of now, ALL of my weddings next year are OBB weddings and I couldn't be more thrilled about it!”

-Cindy Savage of Aisle Less Traveled

“Offbeat Bride was very kind to its vendor community and offered free vendor listing renewals during the pandemic when wedding businesses needed all the help they could get.

Thanks to Ariel's generous offer, I was able to land one of my dream clients in my target market.

What an amazing silver lining to an otherwise unfortunate year.

Thank you Offbeat Bride, from the bottom of my heart!”

Gloria Di Felice of Historia Wedding and Event Planning Inc.

When I think about advertising, ROI comes to mind first, however, there is an impactful and unique investment that stands out when advertising with Offbeat Bride.

I have found my people. My people have found me. I photograph Offbeat Bride weddings that match so well that guests often think I'm a fellow guest who also happens to be the photographer. Consider that familiarity and comfort immediately will help others feel relaxed in front of a camera and help provide the best photographic outcome, not to mention the positive of working an event you fully enjoy.

Offbeat Bride has brought me clients that match all areas of my photography business in addition to weddings (furthering my ROI) as well as wedding clients that in turn have gone on to become dear friends in my life. After 20 years of photographing weddings, the magic of weddings is renewed. How's that for your advertising buck? -Kristin Reimer of Photomuse 

“We knew we loved Offbeat Bride, so we did an ad there in the first week of our Kickstarter campaign.

Within 24 hours of the ad going live, both our number of backers and total dollar value pledged more than DOUBLED.

Of all the web ads we tried (and there were lots), nothing came close to the results we saw from Offbeat Bride.

We never would have made our Kickstarter goal without them.

It's no exaggeration to say that we owe our product's existence to Offbeat Bride.”

-Ailea Sneller, Cads Against Matrimony

“As a creative DJ company, we know that what we do isn't for everyone.  But Offbeat Bride directly connects us to exactly the kind of couples we created Amp'd Entertainment to serve: music lovers

Offbeat Bride is the single greatest platform we have found to connect “the cool kids” with equally cool vendors who share their vision and style. Offbeat Bride has led amazing couples to us from across the US. 

We couldn't be more grateful to Offbeat Bride for encouraging outside-of-the-box thinking and supporting creative vendors like us!”

-Hollon “DJ Bigg H” Yarborough of Amp'd Entertainment

“We have been advertising with Offbeat Bride for many years and are extremely pleased with the results.

We get at least 2-3 inquiries from Offbeat Brides weekly — and about 50% of the inquiries turn into sales.”

Dressmaker Tova Mark of Wedding Dress Fantasy

My ROI has been larger than any other site I'm listed on, by far.

I don't get as many inquiries from Offbeat Bride, but the ones I do get, always book.

In fact, I haven't had a single inquiry yet that hasn't booked!

What's awesome, though, is that I get my most inventive couples from Offbeat. The cool themes, the creative, the geeky — I absolutely love it!

“The weddings we book from Offbeat Bride are always memorable.

Our Offbeat Bride couples tend to be more tech-savvy and full of fun ideas (crocheted “yay” flags, a “book + whiskey” theme, for example).

They tend not to care about the so-called obligatory details, and just want to have a great wedding!

-Crystal, Cherry Blossom Planning Factory

Advertiser testimonial: Lori Foxworth of Black White & Raw Photography

I firmly believe that as a wedding photographer, it’s not about how much money you put into advertising, but identifying your ideal client, and finding the perfect place to attract them. We knew from the moment we decided to focus on shooting weddings that we wanted to attract more interesting, offbeat, unique weddings, and that Offbeat Bride was the perfect home for us.

I truly consider Offbeat Bride to be the most value for my advertising dollar, and is the only place that I advertise. Roughly 75% of our clients find us through Offbeat Bride.

Has advertising on Offbeat Bride benefited me? In a word (OK, two words): hell yes!

First and foremost, the ad pays for itself and then some every year (it’s reasonably priced so even just one booking will cover the cost and still put money in my pocket).

The brides that find me on Offbeat Bride are excited to work with me right from the start (it’s like fast-forwarding over half of the sales cycle!) and easy to talk to, since we already speak the same language. And they invariably have the kinds of weddings that I can’t wait to be part of: creative, colorful, and deeply meaningful.

Advertiser testimonial: Karina Picache of Oh Karina Photography

When I got into the wedding business, there was a big push for not paying to advertise. There are so many other avenues, they said. You don’t have to spend a penny, they said. Blog, Facebook, distribute table cards, word of mouth. And it’s not that that doesn’t work… But target marketing can be a tricky thing.

Enter, Offbeat Bride.

The month I quit my job and went into 100% freelance, single girl business-ownership, I bit the bullet, and applied to advertise as an Offbeat Bride vendor.

I booked 20 weddings my first year — and 17 of them right from Offbeat Bride.
