Here is what our clients have to say about our service:

"I cannot thank the ladies of Black Inc. enough for all of the brilliant design work and all the effort they have done in helping me get up and running with Empire Productions. Working with the staff has been a stress free feeling and has truly helped boost my sales in a matter of no time. Off the August Bridal show alone, I have become almost 80% booked for the 2012 year. My website googleanalytics show that 40% of my web traffic is coming from being listed on the website and I have seen over 300 website views in the first 3 days after the bridal show. I have also received dozen of leads and contact emails from being listed on Kari and staff have not only gone above and beyond what most advertisers would, they have spent the time one on one to truly get a grasp on my business and how they can fully relay that message to the brides. Since I contacted Kari mid-July she and her staff have been more than patient in working with my busy and abnormal schedule to ensure all my needs have been addressed and more. Being a small business in the competitive market is tough; however by working with the professional staff at Black Inc. I strongly recommend anyone looking to increase their business to contact Kari and her staff at Black Inc. as soon as possible.

“I started with in May—and in three weeks, I already had three leads directly from their website. The next step for me was to get a booth space at their August 21st GonnaGetWed Bridal Showcase. It was my first time at the event and wasn’t sure what to expect. With my heart set on getting 10 brides to sign up for my wedding invitations, I ended up with 47 leads! And the day after the Showcase, I had two more leads from their website. What that means to me as a small business in the bridal industry, is that Black Inc. has mastered the art of gathering brides in the region and directing them to your business so you can connect with them. The rest is up to you. I compliment Kari and her phenomenal team. I was surprised and delighted that they knew my name and my company’s name when I walked in the door. I recommend Black Inc. and to any bride or business in the wedding industry. It’s been exciting to watch my small business grow because of them.”

"I just wanted to e-mail you and extend thanks to you and all of the Black Inc. staff. We had a great day yesterday at the Black Tie Bridal Showcase. We had 8 people book consultations with us, and one person put money down on the spot, that was a first for us! We really enjoyed the show, and as usual, you were all great to work with. Once again, THANK YOU!!!"

"Thank you guys!  I have been getting calls and emails steady from your Black Tie Bridal Showcase in Sioux Falls.  I'm sure we will book at least a couple of weddings from your bridal show. What a great experience."

"I just wanted to drop a note to say how impressed I was with the entire Black Tie process. The ad that was created was perfect and I couldn't get over how nice the VOW planners were! Also, the bridal showcase was an amazing opportunity for Family Wellness. I am so glad we were able to do it. Thanks again! You were all great to work with!"

"GonnaGetWed has been a great resource in so many aspects of our
business. It's been a blessing to be able to draw from their knowledge and services. In 2010 we became Silver GonnaGetWed members and have seen a steady increase of customers. For our special events we've used their email blasts and postcard mailings and it's turned out to be our best advertising avenue. What's even more impressive is that we get unsolicited calls from them regarding how they would like to help our business. This solidifies the fact that they truly are there to help us succeed. It's such a blessing to have friends like them."

"Just wanted to say I thought it was a great show yesterday! I know you guys were a little bit nervous with the time of year and everything, but we had great response and ran out of all the books that we brought to hand out which is awesome! We already had two brides come into the store today that were at the show yesterday! So hats off again to a great show. Thanks for all you guys do!" 

- Taren, Bridal Gallery (August 23, 2010)


"Thank you for your gift of 20 Easter baskets. We appreciate your support of our work as we continue to serve women and children in need of safety..."

"Thank you for everything you have done for us. We are so grateful!"

"I wanted to say again... THANK YOU! The banners you designed are simply amazing. You are very very skilled at what you do and I want you to know that I couldn't be happier with the way they turned out! You girls are all consummate professionals and we're very lucky to have you involved with the success of our businesses!
Thank you so much..."

"My husband and partner, Bob, and I have been in the food service industry for about 20 years... With the economy over the past few years, we honestly weren't sure if we were going to make it."

"After meeting Kari and her staff in person, I felt confident that we would be headed in the right direction."

"The marketing combination of this website and bridal show exposure as well as regular customer contact and follow up has had amazing results on our business.  At a time when many companies are downsizing or closing their doors, our catering is growing. Our catering sales went up 85% from 2008 to 2009. So far in 2010 [March], we've booked over double the number of weddings compared to 2009."

This is a prime example of a company doing everything right! She follows the 4 steps of our suggested marketing program. She attends the Black Tie Bridal Shows, runs print ads in VOW, has a page on, follows up with her bride list with our Preferred Mail Program, and had dedicated the time it takes to follow up on ALL her leads. Congratulations Laurie and your team on all your success!


Ardyss Thank you,, South Dakota Wedding
