This is a guest post by SnapKnot, a website dedicated to helping engaged couples find their perfect wedding photographer.
We have been very pleased with the response from the wedding photography community and engaged couples since launching SnapKnot in February of this year. Now that we are in our 10th month of operations, we are considering the next steps to improve the site with the goal of making SnapKnot the go-to choice for brides and grooms just starting their search for a wedding photographer.
We have a few ideas of our own that we are planning to implement in the coming months, but we thought it would be fun to create a contest around the next Big Ideas for SnapKnot here on Tiffinbox.
We want to reach out to the vast community of photographers who visit this blog and ask –
How Would You Improve SnapKnot?
What would you like to see?
What would you change?
What would give photographers and/or brides a better overall experience?
Leave a comment below with a few sentences describing what you’d like to see on the site. In return for sharing your opinion with us, three photographers will win free SnapKnot Premium memberships. We will consider all the ideas and we will select the ones we like the best as winners. Also we encourage people to comment on which ideas they like – this will help us make our final decisions.
The 3 Best Ideas Will Win:
1) Grand Prize: 1 year of SnapKnot Premium membership
2) 2nd Prize: 6 months SnapKnot Premium
3) 3rd Prize: 3 months SnapKnot Premium
1) Minimum of 50 ideas needed to activate the prizes
2) Current Premium members are not eligible for these prizes. Only new members and current Free members are eligible.
3) 1 entry per photographer
4) Please include a valid name and email address so we can contact the winners
5) Contest ends at midnight December 31, 2010
6) Winners will be announced in January
So, hop to it. You have only TWO weeks left before we call out 3 winners. Keep those ideas coming. We want to hear from YOU!
Brides and Photographers both like to get published in magazines. And magazines love details. How about a details section or a details contest. Anything that promotes shooting, selling or showing of detail photos. (non-people centric)
I would like to see more picture options. Like 20+ for premium members and at least 3-5 for free accounts. Also I too think that a contest of some sort is a great idea. I love my Snapknot account and I’m so glad I found it!

My suggestion is to make it more bride-centric. When I go to the site now it seems to be catered to the photographer (which is cool for me), but it doesn’t really say, “Hey brides (and grooms) are you looking for a cool photographer that fits your style (and your budget)? Look no further, you’ve come to the right place.” Depending on how the user finds the site would obviously make the difference. But, they come to you from a Google search, it might not be ultra-obvious to them, at first glance, where to go on the site. Maybe just a little tag that says. “brides&grooms start here”. Like you do for the link that says “photographers start here”. I love the functionality and the look though, and I plan to join!
