I have touched on this many times. For the last print issue of Mobile Beat I wanted to emphasize it again. Why would you offer games at your events? One thing I hear over and over from other DJ’s is that games are “cheesy”. Let’s look at that.
What is “cheesy”? I would think what might be cheesy to one person would be a lot of FUN for someone else. I have always thought it comes down to knowing your market and knowing your audience. It also comes down to knowing your strengths and having a plan.
When I am working with a potential client or a current client, I try to get as much information
from them as possible. It is their event. What are they looking for? I am often working with a committee or small group that is planning the event. Are they looking for only things that interest them personally, or do they have the good of the entire group in mind? It helps that in my market I am known for a highly interactive show.
When clients come to me they are already looking for a certain level of entertainment. It is my job to work with them to develop a night of entertainment that will achieve their goal. Usually the goal is simply to HAVE FUN!
