Our strategies are to:

  • provide ideas and materials to 'personalise' civil ceremonies in ways not easily achievable by the Registry Offices or the churches

  • give CCN members ways to differentiate themselves from other celebrants
  •   give members ways to gain additional income from- specialised certificates & products
    • selling appropriate members' products on commission (ie a mechanism for members to sell on commission products and services they generate, that may or may not be a potential conflict of interest for them.)
    • providing additional advertising options for own celebrancy or other business activities (ie a mechanism for members to advertise products and services they generate, that may or may not be a potential conflict of interest for them, via the advertising section of the website.)
  • provide basic and specialized stationery & resource materials to CCN  members at discounted prices
  • provide geographically isolated members with access to resources not available in their areas

    Note: High petrol costs, your time and the lower cost of products to CCN members makes buying on-line or by phone more economical.

There are a number of celebrant stationery suppliers. The CCN suggests you check with us, if you see something better or that we don't seem to have. Usually we have alternative products for specific reasons.

Please contact us if you would like to discuss your needs.

Copyright applies to ALL CCN products - so such products are only to be used for the individual celebrant purchaser's needs, and may not be used by anyone else

ALL CCN products - are kept at affordable prices for the benefit of members. Thus there should be no need to break copyright by sharing files or cd's etc.  To do so will increase prices and disadvantage everyone.

Web Page or Website with Domain Name and Hosting

Consider purchasing your own domain name, and a Domain Manager.

Then point your domain name to a web page listing you have. We suggest your listing on our CCN website, because you can edit that at no extra cost.

There are many places you may buy domain names on the web. If you want our assistance, we suggest you use Jumba to purchase a Domain Name and Domain Manager.

Code of Practice Advertising

Take care. Some advertising strategies return little or no referrals. 

Networking with other celebration suppliers is a low cost and efficient way to gain referrals by word of mouth. 

Our CCN Inc has  a promotional strategy using the Gold Rose and free local directory entries for local celebration suppliers.

A web presence is an important tool to consider as part of your marketing plan and business operations. See the CCN Celebrant Shop
