MB Responds to LV Tragedy

October 2, 2017 by Dan Walsh
Here at Mobile Beat we were shocked and deeply saddened to hear about the tragedy that has occurred in Las Vegas, within yards of the Tropicana, home of our Las Vegas event, MBLV. We are especially disturbed at yet another act of violence targeting people innocently enjoying music they loved. Our thoughts and prayers go out to the victims, their families, first responders, and all who have been affected by this horrible event. After enjoying more than two decades of the city's great hospitality, we feel the need to give back in some way, to help in the healing that the community is now beginning, in the aftermath of such horror. Look for an announceme... [read more]

How to get 60% up to more brides responding to your emails (Part 1 of 2)

September 23, 2017 by Terry Lewis
Have you ever sat down in front of your computer, sent an email to prospects and heard crickets? This use to happen to me as well until I incorporated The 4 Essential Keys into my email marketing and in so doing, I increased my response rate by 60%. Messages I use to write had a disappointing reply rate, because of the poor copy writing skills I applied; I call those my ‘Emails to DEBRA.’ The super-responsive emails I write today are a massive contrast, and more often than not go onto build a two way relationship that moves prospects further down my sales funnel; and I call these my ‘Emails to BECI.’ DEBRA and BECI are of course both acronyms… read more]

The 600 MHz Countdown

September 6, 2017 by Ben Stowe, CTS
If you use a microphone, wireless speaker system, wireless video system or any other device operating in the 600 MHz band the clock is running out for reliable use of that system. The FCC has stated that we must vacate that band by July of 2020, but for some counties it must be sooner. When the FCC forward auction was complete and the spectrum repack plan announced, it was widely believed that we would have plenty of time to adjust. This was based on historical repacks and conventional knowledge. It stands to reason that a company that calls itself the “Un-carrier” would be anything but conventional. T-Mobile is already lighting up sites with 600 MHz coverage, even though it doesn’t have a phone to use with them at the moment. That’s not far behind though, they have announced the LG V30 will be arr... [read more]

Beyond The Beat: From DJ To Expo Producer

August 18, 2017 by Robert Lindquist
While attending the Mobile Beat DJ Show in March, 2016, I had the pleasure of sharing some chat time with Mike Anthony Mireles, a Mobile DJ/MC/Entertainer from Houston, TX. Our conversation was essentially a volley of random thoughts about to how DJs can expand beyond operating a DJ service. At one point, Mike referred to DJ’ing as an “entrepreneurial playground.” How true. When I think of all the people I have met during the years that I’ve been associated with the international DJ community—I am consistently impressed by those who have taken a giant leap of faith and have landed in a position that they themselves may not have realized as possible.

Show Off Your Brand Without “Selling”

August 16, 2017 by Stephen J Clayton
In 2016 big companies budgeted $570 million marketing to Instagram’s biggest social influencers. This includes ongoing ambassadorships, brand reviews, sponsored posts, mentions, event coverage, and more. The world of marketing and branding has done a complete 180 in the recent years, as “social media influencer” wouldn’t even have been a term or label for a person 10 years ago. Social platforms like Instagram, Twitter, Youtube, and Snapchat have been home to regular people that become famous showing their daily lives and develop cult like fan bases. These fan bases will seemingly buy anything these social influencers post o... [read more]
