Hello lovelies! This afternoon I thought I would share (finally) some feedback from the 2012 readers’ survey. First of all, a HUGE thank you to all of you who participated – I really appreciate your time and effort! Relaunching the blog in May was scary, and it has been so amazing not just to see the numbers grow but to hear from you what the site means to you as well. Your responses really do make a difference – they show myself (and my sponsors) how to help you, where things could be improved, and what to do more of. So again, THANK YOU. Right, here we go!
Good morning, friends! Can you believe it’s been four months since I relaunched SouthBound Bride? On the one hand, it seems like it’s been forever, and the old branding and website is a distant memory. On the other, these months have flown by! But now that we’ve all settled into our new home, looked around a bit, found our favourite spot on the furniture, I have a favour to ask of you, my lovely readers. If you could give five minutes of your time to answering this year’s reader survey before today’s inspiration board appears shortly, I would be hugely grateful. I promise there’s not too many questions, but it’ll give you a chance to give feedback on the site – on what works for you and what doesn’t, what you love and want more of, and what you think could be improved. Last year’s survey resulted in real developments – for example, lots of you said you wanted to see more real weddings, and South African weddings and suppliers outside of the Cape, and now that’s exactly what we do, with three real weddings a week from around the country. Or the fact that you asked for more on hen nights and bridal showers, and that’s been a growing area. So I really do take on board what you say, and I would love it if you would take part. This isn’t just for brides and grooms – wedding suppliers, there are a few questions in there specifically for you too!
I’m hoping you’ll do this just because you want to make the site the best it can be for you, but as an extra incentive, I’ll be giving away a little prize to one random person (you don’t have to leave your name and email address unless you want to enter the draw). The final contents will depend on what kind of reader wins it, but it will definitely include a copy of the fantastic Irrevent A-Z Wedding Guide: South Africa, which is a brilliant read no matter which side of the industry you’re on.
A huge, huge THANK YOU in advance… You can enter the survey by clicking on the image below or right here.
