I am one excited blogger today to launch a project I have been working on with my very smart developer for over six months (and dreaming of for a year!) Today we launch the brand new Polka Dot Bride submissions process!
Anybody who has submitted weddings, inspiration and engagement shoots to us, knows that we can be a bit slow (and by we, I mean I, as I personally select and sort each and every submission myself). With the increasing size of Polka Dot Bride comes an increasing number of submissions and instead of trying to fumble around in my inbox, we’ve developed a brand new submission process to automate and streamline the way we do things.
Our brand new submission process will:
– Take you through a step by step process with clear instructions to follow
– Allow you to upload images straight to the system
– Allow you to nudge us if we haven’t responded to you
– Allow you to send a link to the Polka Dot Bride questionnaire directly to your newlywed or engaged couples to fill out
– Manage your submissions from the one page, see what stage each submission is at, what you will need to do next, when it will be published, and even the link to the publication.
In short, the submission tool cuts out ‘the middle man’ (us!) and allows you more control over each step of the process!
Vendors – To start your submission process just go to the ‘Submissions’ button at the top right of the page and proceed following the instructions.
We’ve also made the decision as a Polka Dot team to put even more energy into our beloved Polka Dot Weddings (the blog for brides written by brides!) and Polka Dot Groom (the blog for the grooms!) Weddings and Groom are specially for you brides and grooms – to tell us about your day, and all those little details that made your day so special. Submissions from our lovely couples will be directed to the contributor application form via our new Submission tool.
Brides and Grooms – To start your submission process just go to the ‘Submissions’ button at the top right of the page and proceed following the instructions.
Our process is fresh out of the oven so do let us know if you have any issues by emailing [email protected]
A big thank you to our tireless developer – Felicity, and Ant at Metrix Operations who have slaved away over this massive project and the one who makes things beautiful, Prue at Gigi and Lulu for pulling this project over the line!
