|Celebrante works on a Per Enquiry model. You only pay for the enquiries you receive.
This means truly cost-effective advertising as you only pay for it if it works!
However, when we were setting up Celebrante, some celebrants indicated that they were receiving dozens of responses from other websites that weren't turning into bookings. You can understand why when you find out that on one of these sites, a single enquiry is sent on to every other celebrant in the area! But at Celebrante, each person who uses the site sends their enquiry to an average of just 1.68 celebrants which means that those celebrants have a much greater opportunity to convert those enquiries into bookings. In fact, the average conversion rate, from what our celebrants tell us, is around 40% to 50% so for every two to three enquiries you receive, you are on average likely to turn at least one of them into a booking.
The cost of each enquiry stands, at most, at just $25.
Most of our celebrants average just one or two enquiries a month. Some get less, a few get more. One celebrant in Melbourne has had just three enquiries in three years. For most celebrants, paying for an enquiry when, and only when, you get one sure beats paying hundreds of dollars a year, or more, for an ad that may or may not result in any new business.
However, we also recognise that some celebrants do quite well and some do amazingly well and for them we offer a range of discounted programs for when they buy credits in advance:
