Fix Your Process Part 1

October 23, 2018 by Mitch Taylor
I just want it to work.”  How often have you said that to yourself? I had a recent interaction with the company on their website where I was trying to make a payment. It was so difficult to figure out how to make a payment that in my head I was thinking “I'm just trying to give you some money, wouldn't you want money?’  Yet time and time again businesses both offline and online frustrate us on the daily. Why? They don’t examine the process a client goes through. Put yourself in your clients’ shoes.   Examine your process. How can you ... [read more]

Tips To Grow On Part 2

October 18, 2018 by Mitch Taylor
We continue with tips to grow on from last week.  So there I sat...18 years old...living the wild, reckless, care-free life that most 1st year college students do and my dream was beginning to burst.  We were also required to take a shift on the local campus radio station 89.3 FM WHSN and that is where I was first bitten with the radio bug. Radio is one of those things that gets in your blood and again being now 19 and loving the "fame" that it was bringing me I was all about it.  I knew a couple of other DJs in my class who did bars and mixed on turntables but ne...

Finite To Infinite

October 16, 2018 by Mitch Taylor
Finite, Time, Life, Mobile Beat, Mitch Taylor, Taylored SalesLast week’s article we dug deeper in regards to how music can move people emotionally and how that can be used for maximum impact at your events.  Now let’s get into a little nitty gritty for application. For example, when you're transitioning out of dinner and into dancing, play a beat. Use sing along songs that aren't necessarily danceable, but they're definitely moving the party forward in the night. If you have a younger demographic couple you might be dropping some early 2000s like M... [read more]

Tips To Grow On Part 1

October 11, 2018 by Mitch Taylor
In 1993 I attending New England School of Broadcasting (now New England School of Communications) and at the time the school was in transition, going from a one year certificate upon completion school to a 2 year Associates Degree of Science in Broadcasting.  My class was the "pilot" program for that school into the Associates Degree. Our president George Wildey always told me that I was blessed because I didn't have the "Maine accent" which meant that I could work anywhere I wished and not be pigeonholed to Maine or other New England states for work.   read more]

Finite Part 2

October 9, 2018 by Mitch Taylor
Finite, Time, Life, Mobile Beat, Mitch Taylor, Taylored SalesLast week we talked about how the time you have at an event to affect a client and their guests with music is finite.  Now your clients may or may not care about the choices you play for music but I can assure you this, at least a few people on their guest list in your audience do.  It’s been said before and it’s a true statement. If you’re not booking at least one event on average per event you do, it’s time to step up your game on the performance side.  On this, one of the more jubilant days of someone’s life, do you want ...

The Most Important Gear You Own Part 2

October 4, 2018 by Mitch Taylor
Stop it.  Take a good L O N G hard look in the mirror.  In a mirror you see everything in all of its (hopefully not) naked glory.  Your positive attributes…negative connotations….everything exposed to the world.  Your mirror is the reflection of who you TRULY are. YOU have the choice of how to react to things.  YOU have the choice of what to do about any situation you put yourself in or are put in. (see what I did there…YOU put yourself in the situation….NOT anyone else.) read more]

Finite Part 1

October 2, 2018 by Mitch Taylor
Finite, Time, Life, Mobile Beat, Mitch Taylor, Taylored SalesIf you think about that word finite what does that mean? For some it may mean small, for others it may mean limited.  In the context of being a DJ at an event, we have a finite amount of time. For some it may be four hours, others could be 8 hours or more, but your time is finite.  Each song you play is a piece of the puzzle. Don’t just sit there and throw out the same playlist at each event. Your client may say “Oh well, we don’t care…just play whatever…you’re the expert.”  That last statement is good for your ego but no... [read more]

The Most Important Gear You Own Part 1

September 27, 2018 by Mitch Taylor
The Most Important Piece of Gear You Own What’s the most important piece of gear you own?  The speaker manufacturers say you can’t have a party without sound so it’s GOTTA be the thump in the room.  Lighting companies will argue that nothing can transform a room like their products so you NEED to pay for what they offer and create to ultimately sell your client.  Microphone manufacturers will say that nothing compares to their product when ...

Rise and Fall Part 4

September 25, 2018 by Mitch Taylor
Your passion should fuel your persistence, and vice versa. As I said last week, you were put on this earth to serve. What’s your passion to serve? For me (and many others), it’s to make a positive lasting impact in as many lives as I can with the resources I have available to me. I don’t think you can be involved in the DJ business, speak of the word “passion” and NOT think of Sean Big Daddy McKee. Big Daddy (as he’s affectionately known by to his friends) lost his mother two months ago. I happened to call him about an hour before he got the news that his Mom was not long for this world. In a time of crisis in his... [read more]

Ego and Advancement Part 3

September 20, 2018 by Mitch Taylor
Ego Advancement Mitch Taylor Taylored SalesThis is the final installment of Ego and Advancement. The point dear reader...don't let your ego stand in the way of your progress.  We truly all should be on the same path to building a better business and a better self.  We just may be at different places on the path. You NEVER arrive...regardless of what certificate or level you think you've achieved.  You should always be working on bettering yourself in each of these six areas. If you're not...someone who wants it more will be there to tak... [read more]
