How Do I Attract Only My Ideal Couples Without Offending Others?

May 14, 2015 by Stephanie and Jeff Padovani
question mark

Question: “What questions can I ask to make sure these are the best clients for me?

I want to make sure that not only am I a good fit for them but are they a good fit for me. I only want to DJ weddings where I would want to be a guest. But there is a thin line between questioning potential clients and possibly insulting them.”

Answer: Filter out the clients you don’t want and attract your ideal couples with targeted marketing.

I love this question because it forces you to identify and target exactly the clients you want. read more]

Many think that mobile DJing isn’t a creative endeavor, but this issue helps correct that misconception, While of course the MB Top 200 List reveals the usual suspects at the top of the list (because, ahem, people—not DJs—chose them, over and over again!), we also have some great material on switching up line dance songs, marrying video and lighting, creatively adjusting to the unexpected, and a whole lot more. In fact, mo... [read more]

The Mobile DJ’s Line Dancing Bible

May 12, 2015 by Staci Nichols
bootsLove 'em or hate 'em, line dances are a fact of life for most DJs. But there are plenty of ways to keep your line dancing routine fresh, allowing you to appease both the line dancers and the haters in any crowd. I personally love line dancing and was a regular at the world famous Brandin' Iron Saloon in San Bernardino for many years. Next week I'll be DJing for the second time at Coachella's country cousin, the Stagecoach Festival. In fact, this year we're unveiling our own line dance called the “Stagecoach Stomp” (choreographed by Annmarie Dunn). So I'm elbow-de... [read more]

Kling-Net: A Better Way to Combine Video and Lighting

May 12, 2015 by Arnoldo Offermann
EZKlingI love technology, and unlike other industries where waiting on at least a second-gen is standard practice, embracing new technology in THIS industry is a MUST! If you follow my videos (My YouTube channel can be found at YouTube.com/DJCraziAce) then you know I’ve been getting into video more than ever. You see, I used to love video back in the day. It was an easy, profitable upsell for many events, especially schools, but that phase died out for a while. Music videos are just blah, live video can only do so much, and it’s a chore synchronizing the video to loo... [read more]

A Matter of Trust

May 12, 2015 by Jason Weldon
trust-dollarAs a quarterback in high school, of the biggest things I took away from my head coach was the ability to trust. To trust my offensive line, to trust my receivers and most of all, trust myself. Trust that everybody was going to do their job and that we were going to execute each and every time. But even with all the trust in the world, I still threw interceptions, I was still sacked and my receivers still dropped the ball. We didn’t execute. But we got another chance. We were able to try again the next play. I find when I am talking to a lot of y... [read more]
