Wedding Planning Community - Wedding News Forums & Blogs
TyingTheKnott is a social networking website exclusively for weddings. This website is a community of both brides and grooms who are planning their weddings, and also every type of wedding professional, service, and retailer. If you are planning a wedding, have an interest in weddings or a profession that is related to weddings, this website is the perfect place for you to connect with brides, grooms and wedding professionals.
Much like Facebook and MySpace, TyingTheKnott is a social networking website where members can join for free, create, customize and maintain their own profile page - Including uploading photos and videos. You can browse other members profiles by either searching for them by name or profession, or even a general search of all members by going to the tab in the link menu above, hover your mouse over the "community" tab and choose to search members. You can then browse other members profiles where you can add them as a friend, send them a message, and check out all of their photos, videos, blog posts, etc...
As a bride or groom, you can connect with other brides and grooms to share your wedding planning ideas and experiences, you can get valuable information, tips and ideas for your wedding in all of our wedding blogs and articles, and you can even start or reply to public discussions in our wedding forum section of the website. You can find wedding professionals in your area that you can choose to book for your own wedding, or consult with to get answers to your questions that you have related to their profession, services or products.
As a wedding professional, service or retailer this website is the perfect opportunity for you to advertise your services, connect with brides and grooms, build relationships with other wedding professionals and offer your opinions, advice, tips, and insight on things related to your profession in the wedding industry.
Wedding professionals can put a link to your own website in your profile, and also tell other wedding professionals and also brides and grooms all about you and your business within your profile bio. You can also contribute to the community, which will establish your credibility and further your exposure in advertising opportunities through either starting or replying to discussions in our public wedding forums, or you can take things to the next level by writing blogs that will be posted here on our website.
While we ask that you don't write a blog just to promote yourself or your business, you can however write a blog that offers helpful advice, tips, ideas, etc.. related to weddings, or your profession. For example, if you are a wedding photographer, maybe you would write a blog that offers tips to brides on getting the best wedding photos, or a blog giving ideas for some great poses, a blog that helps a bride to find, book, or communicate with their wedding photographer, or even a blog that offers advice or tips to help other wedding photographers. The possibilities are endless for just what you can write blogs about, and you can write as many as you want, and as often as you want to.
The good thing about writing blogs is that you can put a credit either at the beginning or the end of each blog that you create that includes your name, business name, location, and a link to your website. You can also include one more link to your website somewhere within your blog by linking a word or a short phrase... this will give you two links in total to your own website in each blog that you create, and this will give you more exposure, and will get you more links to your website. The better the blog you create, the higher it will rank with Google and other search engines, which will give you a higher placement when people search for topics related to your blog, and will also make the links to your website more valuable, which will increase the page rank of your own website!
You can write blogs anytime by clicking on the blogs tab on the main link menu above. You can hover your mouse over the tab and then click on submit new blog or you can click on the ADD button on any of the blog pages to add your own blog. The best blogs will be featured on our homepage, which will give you more exposure and a higher value to your page rank for the blog and the links to your website within your blog. You can't beat free advertising!
You can also chat live with other members who are currently on the website. You will find a chat box on the main page of this website, you will also see a chat option in the lower part of your screen that lets you know how many people are online, and by clicking on this it will bring up the chat window on any page that you are on, or you can click on the community tab in the link menu above and then on the live group chat feature.
