It’s day 4 of our public launch on Seedrs and it is still going strong! You can take a look at our progress here! Over £17,500 has been pledged by over 70 investors but there is still a long way to go. For any of you that are new to crowdfunding, you can find out what it involves and how the money will help our business here, but for now I wanted to tell you a little bit more about BB boutique and where we plan on taking it.
We already have over 50 suppliers from all over the UK selling on the site and we plan to sign up hundreds more by the end of 2016. Couples are able to refine their search by category, location, price and is available 24/7, which means you can plan your wedding from wherever you are, when ever and you can even add vendors to wish lists which you can keep private or share with family members and friends.
With investment we plan to make it even easier to navigate, updating the way suppliers upload and view their products and adding messenger functionality so that potential clients can message their chosen suppliers with any queries they might have. We also want to build our team to include PR & Marketing as well as a head of brand partnerships so that we can help support small businesses in the wedding sector as they grow.
As you can probably tell we have big plans for the site which is why we are asking other small wedding businesses, engaged couples and start-ups to invest as we want this is to be especially for you! And thanks to Seedrs this can be done quickly and safely from their platform and you will never be asked to make further payments. Your investment can be pledged in just a few short steps. All you need to do is:
1. Head to Seedrs & click ‘JOIN’
3. Take a short quiz (this makes sure that you understand the risks in investing in a startup)
And that’s how easy it is folks! The wedding revolution is just a few small steps away.
