    CSS is simple... So is WordPress... use pagelines theme and customize your own website.... the good thing about wordpress or any other cms is the plugins help alot and Its fully customizable..

    I've yet to get a lead from random websites like discjockeys.com. Gigmasters was good for a couple of years, but it's been taken over by cheaper dj's that under bid apparently.

    I upgraded to a paid advertiser on Wedding Wire 2 years ago. The first year wasn't that great. This year, I'd say about 70% of my bookings said they found me there. It takes reviews, and advertising there isn't cheap. I have a 2012 Bride's Choice Awards badge and some great reviews now, and bookings have really picked up. Last year I would have said it was a waste of money. This year, I'm glad I gave it another try.

    Never advertised on The Knot. I have a few reviews on there, but their advertising rates are way too expensive for me... for the moment at least.

    Stopped posting on Craigslist long ago. I used to get bookings on CL when my rates were cheaper.

    Thumbtack sends me loads of leads but they're all like 2 hours away. I've yet to buy one.

    My suggestion is trial and error. Different things work in different areas. Google advertising is good, I use up my $100 freebie each year, and spend a couple hundred bucks randomly through the year.

    I left Wedding Wire for The Knot this year... Man was THAT a stupid mistake!!!

    EDIT... Back on Wedding Wire AND The Knot... Phone and email are ringing off the hook.

    There is a part of wedding wire called event wire, it costs 36 a month more to be a part of. there's also a couple others like prom wire and babyshower wire etc. Are there any other sites not mentioned that aren't just for weddings?
    I won't deal with "bargain shoppers." If a customer calls me and thinks he/she can whittle down my price because DJ RectalSquirt is offering to DJ for $100 for the night, then he/she and DJ RectalSquirt probably deserve one another. -Badger

    Has anyone else got a paid account with them? Wonder if it's worth it. The saleswoman keeps calling me, claiming they're the best.

    I would like to have an account with Wedding Wire but they only do 1 year contracts & I wont do that with any of the sites. There are a couple other sites that usually want 1 year contracts but upon talking with them they normally work with me on a monthly basis. WW called me & we discussed it but they would not budge from a one year contract. What if I am with a company for 6 months & I get no calls?? Am I supposed to stay with them for a whole year? Absolutely not. If I haven't gotten a gig from a site within six months, I would have a hard time accepting that I need to continue to pay for another six months just to fulfill a year long contract. That's why I wont do it.

    If its such a good site & it will do me so much good, sell me a monthly ad for 6 months & if I get enough response that justifies me continuing that agreement, then we both win cause I sure ain't going to leave if its paying me to stay there & advertise. I certainly wont commit to a 1 year contract when I have already been with them for 2 or 3 years (free ad) & never gotten even one call. I agree that most people who shop there may not even consider the non paid ad, but, I still wont commit to a yearly contract without knowing if its going to benefit me. I'll chance a 3 or 6 month contract but no way will I commit to pay you for a year, just on your word.

    Thanks for putting this in perspective for me, Dixie. They called me yesterday and tried to sell me one a one year upgrade. I didn't like the idea of it then and I still don't. I told them I would think about it and to call me in a couple of days. I think I have my answer now.
