Business Card Checkup!

October 12, 2017 by Joe Bunn
OK everyone, let's do a business card checkup! In other words, take a good long look at your business card, your first impression, your first line of offense. Is it any good? Ask others for honest feedback and then follow some of my tips below! Design. The design is the key piece. Whatever you do, DON’T try to DIY design your card (unless of course, you are a graphic designer). I like to find local designers, normally freelance ones that work for themselves. They are cheaper than a large design firm and their turnaround time is usually very fast. Check their portfolio BEFORE spending any money, and then show them some examples of cards that you like. Also check out sites like elance.com, fiverr.com, and 99designs.com Size matters. Business cards don’t have to be the standard size anymore. My card (s... [read more]

A Tale Of Two Brides Part Two

October 12, 2017 by Mitch Taylor
This is the continuation of last week’s article discussing A Tale Of Two Brides.  Or are they?     There had been a recent debate in a group of wedding entertainers I belong to on Facebook  stating “You can’t turn a $500 bride into a $2000 bride”.  Do you believe you can transition a bride from wanting to spend only $500 to spending 4 times that amount?  I’ve proven that it can be done, not always, but yes it can be done.  You won’t do anything if you don’t take the swing.   I began thinking back to my Creative Consultations seminar in 2010 and the words ringing in my head were “Don’t shor...

DJ Tips In Under A Minute: Try To Get The Bar To Move Inside.

October 12, 2017 by DJ Jay
All right. DJ tips in under a minute, the bar is way back there outside. I want the bar inside. I should've fought for it, because that's my dance floor, there are all my tables, here's all my guests, here is my head table right on top of me, but the problem with this room is the bar they've taken and put it outside. So everybody that wants to get a drink throughout the night is going to head outside to get it. They can't hear the music or the announcements. It'll work out fine, it's not the end of the world, but from now on, I'm going to ask the bride and groom, where do you plan on having your bar? And if they say outside, I'm going to suggest how about having it inside? Because that way all the guests that I want to have dancing later on stay inside and chillax. So DJ tips in under a minute, if you have a... [read more]

Combating Bridechilla: Bridezilla’s alter ego?

October 11, 2017 by Stephanie and Jeff Padovani
Bridezilla's Alter Ego Quick quiz. Which is worse, Bridezilla or Bridechilla? Wedding professionals, if we took a vote, right here, right now, which would you choose? I know that through your wedding business, you’ve met both—you’ve overheard a bridezilla discuss how she’s required her bridesmaids to dye their hair brown so she’s the only blonde, the bridezilla who dumps a bridesmaid because the bridesmaid has joyfully announced she’s pregnant, the bridezilla who is just downright not nice to your poor receptionist—for inexplicable reasons. But how about the bride who says, “I don’t know?” to every question you ask? And ... [read more]

Why Do We Resist Change?

October 11, 2017 by Jordan Nelson
DJs can be stubborn. We cling so tightly to our ideals until someone grabs us by the shoulders and shakes us 'til we wake up. For some, they refuse to believe they can charge a livable wage in their market. For others, they hold fast to the idea that their equipment defines their service. And some are so set in their ways that there is no chance in hell they will ever switch to a MIDI controller. Why do we resist change? Technology is constantly evolving, and deliberately choosing to stay behind can be detrimental to our businesses. A few examples: No matter how much you swear that vinyl DJing is the only pure form of DJing or that CDs are "the most reliable" media option, the fact of the matter is that using digital media to DJ is the new standard. For a mobile DJ, it simply makes sense. It's ea... [read more]

Many of us struggle with sales as an entrepreneur from time to time.  Maybe your sales person isn’t making quota this week, month or year.  Maybe you yourself are slacking in this department. Maybe they’re on a roll with sales and yet they are getting really cocky and they think they... [read more]
