Submit. Match. Publish.
The wedding submission process can be painful for all of us.
I won’t go into detail about my workflow and struggles as an editor, but I will acknowledge that many of the vendors I work with struggle with the time-consuming process of submitting and getting their work published in the right places.
It’s hard to find the time to process the submission, find the “right fit,” and comply with different submissions requirements.
And then there’s the “fit” thing.
How many times have you been excited about submitting to a wedding blog only to get a canned rejection email saying your submission “isn’t a fit.” and you get NO other information about what that means.
What’s worse, when you turn around to submit to another blog you may have to jump through a whole bunch of different hoops, including
- Re-contacting the couple for ANOTHER and completely DIFFERENT interview questionnaire.
- Re-uploading images to meet different image size requirements.
- Re-tagging all of the vendors associated with the submission.
What a waste of time!
So the seasoned wedding bloggers of Aisle Society, who work directly with vendors during the submission process and have heard of submission woes first hand, have created a submissions tool based on our real experiences working with YOU to get your work published.
We aren’t a bunch of silicon valley tech people trying to tap into the wedding market. We aren’t newbies. We are experienced editors who have been working with wedding pros for years. Through that experience, we know how to revolutionize the submission process!
That’s why we’ve created Matchology, an exciting new tool that simplifies the submission process.
But we need your help to build it!
Increase your submission acceptance rate with match technology
Matchology’s built-in technology will match your submission to the blog that is the best fit based on setting, style, exclusivity and location.
It boasts a user-friendly dashboard that will seamlessly integrate into your existing workflow. With features like auto-fill vendor crediting, status updates by email, one-click resubmission, and a single questionnaire that is used by all of our blogs, submitting is going to be a breeze!
Save Time + Streamline Your Workflow
Matchology streamlines the process of submitting, so you spend less time dealing with submissions and more time getting published. For example, we know it’s a headache to have your clients fill out a completely different vendor survey for each blog you submit to. So we’ve created a universal questionaire, so couples only have to fill out one questionnaire that is used by all 30+ blogs!
Matchology also lets you re-submit to another blog with just one click.
How It Works
Think of it as the dating app of wedding submissions! You’ll upload your event or shoot, using our intuitive system, and provide a few key details about it, such as category, style and setting. There’s a single questionnaire and universal submission requirements across all blogs, plus you can use one of your existing systems to upload pictures, including Dropbox, Pass, SmugMug or Pixieset. Our fancy algorithm will work its magic and match you with the publications that are the best fit. No more submitting blindly! You’ll choose which blog(s) to submit to, and from there, you’ll be guided in the publication process if they accept, and kept informed all the way.
Matchology’s user-friendly dashboard will seamlessly integrate into your workflow, with features like auto-fill vendor crediting, status updates by email, one-click resubmission and copyright protection.
