"I have studied Visual Communication & Design management and spent several years running my creative studio." "I joined the creative world of weddings & events back in 1996, serving the industry as a wedding DJ and an event entertainment professional since this very day." "I am the founder/owner of Wedding Republic (an event entertainment firm in Greece), the organizer of WDJC (Greece's Wedding DJ Convention) and organizer of several DJ business workshops." "I always believed that you have to give so you can make space for new things to come." "I also -firmly- believe in the value that comes from the community; the greatness that can be accomplished together with other people. This is why I speak, I teach, I write and I grind daily, trying to motivate other wedding DJs in Greece & Cyprus, connect with each other, care for one another, help one another, develop work ethics and see the true value of a healthy competition."

Communication Is The Game

February 12, 2019 by Christos Nikas
Hey Mr. DJ, A huge welcome and thanx for being here. You are amazing. Technology and innovation keep pushing the boundaries every day, trying to make our lives, performance, and service more comfortable, better, and more effective. There are DJs who embrace it and try to make the most out of it and those who -still- think that tech is the mother of all evil and blame it for their failures. "Everybody is a DJ now" "Real DJs don't use sync" blah.. blah.. blah... Yes, things have changed, and there is a plethora of new tools a DJ can use to step up his (her) game, but technology is n...

Reviews Emergency (pt1)

January 10, 2019 by Christos Nikas
Hey Mr. DJ, A massive welcome and thanx for being here. You are amazing. It's this time of the year when our Facebook newsfeed turns yellow, and those cute little words start popping up. COUPLES' CHOICE AWARD! We all know that getting this badge is all about collecting good reviews yet so many WeddingWire listed professionals -all around the world-, have no reviews at all or struggle to collect them. I keep getting questions like: "I have requested them for a review. Why have they gone radio silence." "Everybody had fun, so why did I get  just a few words long review?" "Is it so hard to ...

Hey Mr. DJ, A huge welcome and thanx for being here. You are amazing.
Business -simply put- is any activity or enterprise entered into for profit. It does not mean it is a company, a corporation, partnership, or have any such formal organization, but it can range from a street peddler to General Motors." (Wikipedia)
The moment a mobile DJ starts asking money for his (her) art, he stops being “just a DJ” and becomes a businessperson. H... [read more]

December 22, 2018 by Christos Nikas
Hey Mr. DJ, A huge welcome and thanx for being here. You are amazing. Just a few days before leaving 2018 behind, you could pause for a few seconds and consider about yourself and those you aim to serve... ★Are they looking for You or just a DJ? ★Do they desire to do business with you or do they kind of "have to"? ★Do you care or are you just "interested in"? ★Are you "You" or someone else's copycat? ★Are you "your Worth" or "your Cost"? ★Are you an investment or an expense? ★Are you the entertainer or the guy managing their playlist? ★Are you...

5 Tips to help you get the Ideal Speaker Set

December 6, 2018 by Christos Nikas
Hey Mr. DJ, A huge welcome and thanx for being here. You are amazing. EVERY PIECE OF EQUIPMENT WE OWN IS A TOOL. Αs professionals, we have to fully understand (especially those who are new into buying Dj equipment), that every piece of tech we buy is a tool. And each tool has a specific use. I see quite often DJs asking on Facebook groups: "What speakers should I get?", "Can you suggest some lighting fixtures?", and so many group members start suggesting without having the slightest...

Your contact form matters. A lot!

November 30, 2018 by Christos Nikas

  Hey Mr. DJ, This is Christos. A huge welcome and thanx for being here. You’re amazing. Your website has a primary goal. Make the couple resonate with your story and care for you & your services enough, to go to your contact page and send you a message. What happens when the bride gets there? Have you taken care of the last page she visits before leaving your site? Or is there just a “Name/Tel/email/subject” boring and generic form? I'm sure your website isn't dull and generic. I'm even more confident that your services and outcome are... [read more]
