Shop due to open soon - Your views on website content and appointments
Hi, just me again. So the shop is coming along nicely, I have all of my suppliers lined up, wedding fairs booked, bridal shows in the diary and I am currently having my website built. All for launch in September.
You were all so lovely last time I posted about your dress shopping experience that I thought I would check in again with just a few further questions.
Bridal Shop Websites: Do you sign up for newsletters that tell you when an event is on and offers? Do you read the blog posts? Have you ever attended a trunk show / designer day and how did you hear about it? Is there anything that you want to see on the website?
Appointments: Okay so a lot of the shops in my area charge for appointments on Saturdays and evenings, stating that the fee will be deducted from any dress purchased. I don't know how I feel about this and I know that a charge may put some people off. If I was to charge (a big IF), how would you feel if payment details were taken but was only charged if a no show or failed to cancel within 48 hours?
