74 Websites to get FREE Advertising for your wedding business in 2019

Which wedding business owner doesn’t love free advertising? 

It gets you in front of potential new customers, and it’s free marketing (did I mention it’s free?).

Wedding vendors know better than anyone that there is a very real love-hate relationships with directory sites.

They seem to bring a lot of leads (which is good). But it seems to always bring brides with big ambitions and small budgets. Can I get an amen?

So, why would you list your business on these sites then?

The answer is the SEO benefit called Backlinks.

Backlink– when one website points to another website. Backlinks have a huge impact on search result rankings.

The more backlinks you have, the higher your website “domain authority score” is. 

Google factors in domain authority score to decide where to rank sites in the search results  (ex. a bride searching “wedding venue near me”)
