Popular Wedding Site “Style Me Pretty” Shutting Down
The popular wedding planning website “Style Me Pretty” announced last week that it was shutting down at the end of this month (April). Now all references to that announcement have been removed from their website and Instagram feed. Maybe #fakenews?

The Wedding Report
Shane McMurray, producer and publisher of The Wedding Report, thinks student loan debt is having an impact on the wedding industry. He’s a smart guy who has been analyzing the wedding industry for years. When he talks, I listen! Follow his Facebook page and take a look at this: http://www.mappingstudentdebt.org/#/map-1-an-introduction
Bye Bye Google Link Shortener
One of my favorite Internet marketing tools, from Google, is being shut down – the Google link shorter. If you use this tool it’s time to move to Plan B – I’m migrating to Bit.ly (http://bit.ly). If you use Hootsuite you’re probably already using Owl.ly. (https://hootsuite.com/pages/owly#).
Shortening and tracking link clicks is an Internet Marketing Best Practice. I use it extensively to track social media clicks and evaluate which campaigns are working the best. Remember, it’s impossible to analyze what you don’t track!
Tip of the Week – Try This at Facebook
Try a “this or that” post at Facebook. Ask, “Which do you like better, A or B? Vote below!” A wedding band or DJ might ask “What would be your favorite 1st Dance song?”
If you host your website/email with Hostgator, PLEASE move it as soon as possible. I’m no fan of Go Daddy either. And if you don’t move, please make sure you have a rock-solid disaster recovery in place. This is where I host websites.
If your website is a mission-critical part of your business, hosting with Hostgator or Go Daddy is just playing Russian Roulette. #notsmart
