The Sound of Silence?

May 29, 2017 by DigiGames
I was challenged by the editor of Mobile Beat to come up with an article that fits the topic of SOUND for this issue. Challenge accepted and it might be one of my best ideas yet. Who knows? So, let me talk to you about the “sound of silence” -- the silence you MIGHT be experiencing with calls for MIDWEEK MONEY work. (See how I did that? Genius.) My main goal with this article each month has always been, and will always be, to help you increase your bottom line. Is your phone ringing, or is it silent? Are you getting contacts through social media and your website? If not, why? Are you offering things that potential customers need outside of the ... [read more]

Full Time: Key to Unlocking Weekday Gigs?

May 5, 2017 by DigiGames
The theme of my article is always something regarding Midweek money. There is a LOT of money to be made during the week. Obviously you need to have the flexible schedule to be able to take on this type of work.
If you have a full time job it MIGHT be tough to book these shows. Will you have the time to do the events? Will you have the time to go out and find these events? If you do an event during the week at night, will you be able to make it to work the next morning? These are all things you need... [read more]

Networking Opportunities

April 26, 2017 by DigiGames
I am a veteran of many, many Mobile Beat conventions and countless other national, regional and local disc jockey and entertainment- related conferences. I dare say I have attended more than most. Each and every one of them brings something new to the table and allows me to learn and improve my bottom line. I recently met with an up-and-com-ing local DJ. This person has worked off and on in various types of DJ-related areas of the business for many years. He was asking my opinion on some things, and even referred to me as a “mentor,” which is a polite way of saying I am old. He just booked his airfare for Mobile Beat Las Vegas and is very excited. His company... [read more]

Have Fun While Working for Yourself and Your Family

December 8, 2016 by DigiGames
Iam writing this article from the Carnival Conquest. My wife and I sail today for the next eight 175-10-11days. I have had a lot of conversations with my friends who have “real jobs” lately about holiday travel, vacation, days off, kids off from school, and all of the FUN things associated with the next few months. There is a common theme: Many of my friends are stressed out. They don’t have enough time off. They can’t visit all their family. They don’t have anyone to watch their kids during break. They don’t have enough money for the extra things that come with the holidays. No bonus this year and times are tough. You get the point. As we boarded the... [read more]

Bible Trivia – Hints, tips and advice

November 18, 2016 by DigiGames
Today though I am going to look at something that on the surface seems a little more specialist but on the whole is a profitable area, and one in which work is easy to come by and that is Bible Trivia. For those of you outside of the US, this may seem like a strange area and indeed it was for me when I was first getting into trivia writing. I had no idea just how big the market was the potential to make large sums of profit. So I am going to guide you through some basics and hopefully get you thinking about launching yourself into this profitable area. Bible Trivia game for fundraiser Bible Trivia – Hints, tips and advice – The Market Firstly, to back up my point…go and type the words Bible Trivia into Google, YouTube or any app store and you will see the huge range of products and the huge mar...

Separate your Trivia Services from your DJ Services

November 11, 2016 by DigiGames
Straight into the mix today….many of you reading this, I am fully aware, are more than just trivia hosts and rightly so. The entertainment world is a tough, competitive market place and you need to be able to offer a range of services so that when the gigs come up you are ready, willing and able to carry out whatever task is needed from your booking client. The most common mixture I see across all parts of the world is trivia hosts who combine their services with DJ Services. This makes sense as usually a quiz is put together on nights when the bar isn’t busy to attract more customers and hence a lot of trivia hosts, if not all, find themselves with very little to do over the weekend and hence they branch out into DJ Services.  I have also seen it where DJ’s branch out into offering trivia. This is... [read more]

What to do when Attendance at your Trivia Night Begins to Dwindle….

November 4, 2016 by DigiGames
Today, I am looking to look at an issue a friend who reads the blog suggested that I cover in a chat we were having. He is having a problem whereby his trivia night has dropped from 16 teams on average, down to 12 teams and now there are some weeks when there are only 5 teams playing, He is in a difficult position and I have been there before myself.  I am sure you will face at some point, if you launch a career in this sector…..what do you do if the trivia attendance starts to fall? You have done all the preparation, planning and everything seems to be going great but all of a sudden things go from bad to worse. You know your neck is on the line and if you don’t pull things round soon then you are going to be in the awful position of having no gigs and no bookings. Here are a few ideas and some food ...

Topics for Trivia – Making the Music Round Better with Name That Tune

October 28, 2016 by DigiGames
Today, I am going to embark on the second post of my series of how you can take standard quiz rounds and give you ideas on how to spice them up to make them more enjoyable. Sticking to the same format, in the same style, every single week will only result in your players becoming bored. You need to keep them on the edge of their toes, not knowing what is coming next and the best quizzes, and the most attended quizzes, are always those which have the most variety. The problem with the music round is it easily becomes stale if all you do is pick at least ten different songs every week and get your players to identify the artists and track titles. It will soon become dull and won’t hold an interest for players who don’t’ excel at this. What you, as a trivia host paid to entertain, must do is find that b... [read more]

Making Proper and Full Use of Bonus Questions – Wipeout Rounds

October 14, 2016 by DigiGames
Today we are going to look at a subject I have touched upon in other posts when talking about how to include bonus rounds or rounds that will shake your quiz up and add that all important element of variety that will have your players coming back for more and more. I have had a lot of people ask me about one of the factors I mentioned and that is the all important Wipeout Round!   Usually in my blog posts I spend time describing the round, looking at the basics.  But here when talking about the ever elusive wipeout round it is going to be a far better idea to just introduce the concept and the basics and then let you look over two examples of quizzes where I have written a wipeout round. This is one of those times when a long paragraph of thoughts will not be as good or effective as simply havi... [read more]
