In order to influence brides to book your premium offer, you must first be influenced you are worth it

June 20, 2017 by Terry Lewis
Success happens in your mind long before it materialises in side your business. Believe in yourself even when others tell you to let go of your dream. It will be those closest to you who will tell you “It can’t be done.” Quite often these are the people who care about you the most and want to protect you from the pain of possible failure but have ironically never stood in the shoes of failure nor success in your pursuit, and whenever your naysayers vocalise unqualified advice you should ask the same question I silently ask myself whenever others try to derail my dreams and that is “Does your life experience and trac...

Six Ways To Create A Buying Atmosphere

June 20, 2017 by Mitch Taylor
One of my favorite Jeffrey Gitomer quotes is “People don't like to be sold but they love to buy.”  If that’s true, then we need to study specifically how to create a buying atmosphere.  Let’s dive right in and give you six ways to create a buying atmosphere in today’s post.   Use verbiage that is conversational.  Just the other day I was coaching a fellow DJ and his response to a client was really long and drawn out, with a lot more “I’s” and “me’s”.  It’s much better to be conversational in your approach and make ti about them.  Don’t use big, fluffy, and over-descriptive wor...

Inexpensive ways to get a professional website for DJs

June 9, 2017 by Mobile Beat Staff Writer
There are lots of inexpensive ways to get a professional website for DJs. Many people feel as if they need to have excellent webpage design skills in their own right in order to have great professional websites. However, there's no reason for individuals to do all the work themselves when it comes to self-promotion of all kinds. It's a good idea to use all available tools. People who don't have a lot of personal experience with webpage design don't need to learn it all themselves in order to do what they need to do for self-promotion.   It is true that almost all professionals should have professional websites these days. In fact, it's almost considered a red flag if they don't at this point in time. DJs are people who need to be good at customer service on a lot of different levels, and that means... [read more]

Investing In the Right Equipment

June 2, 2017 by Stephen J Clayton
At the start of any new business venture, there is going to be risk. Financially (and not to mention mentally). Especially when diving into the competitive entertainment industry.  There’s always pressure to be the most advanced, have the newest equipment, the coolest set up… Technology changes so fast and it’s overwhelming and discouraging to many new young entrepreneur's. In this blog I’m going to help you to identify what trends in equipment and branding are worth your investment. First, what does your existing customer base look like?  It’s safe to assume that the equipment you’re using for your existing customer base is in demand, since they already hired you once and understand what it is you provide.

Do You Trust Me

June 1, 2017 by Mitch Taylor
Do you trust me? As I analyze my business over the course of the last decade of being at it full-time, I come back to one word and many clients.  Here's just one example of said clients.  My clients were Dick and Elga, a couple who fifty years ago that day tied the knot in a beautiful ceremony.  Dick is a wonderful man with Elga his wife telling me the reason they lasted for fifty years in marriage was that she never wanted to hear the words I told you so from her mother.  In Dick's words, "you made it work". Dick and Elga's fiftieth anniversary celebration was well attended from people all over and was filled with laughter, crying a... [read more]
