Competitors or Friends What Do You Want Part 1

November 8, 2018 by Mitch Taylor
Competitors or Friends - What Do You Want? The year was 2002.  My wife and I had just had our first born, a son named Hunter.  At that point I took stock of my life and made the (hard at the time) decision to move our family from where we had built a life in Metro Detroit to drop roots in either the Upper Peninsula of Michigan or my home state of Maine.  It took a LOT of discussion with her and I together to make the decision and was a hard choice but IMO in the end it was the RIGHT choice for us. I LOVE Maine...but more as a place to say where I'm from and visit. So the U.P. of Michigan it was.   After that decis... [read more]

Are you naked in front of your clients

Are you naked in front of your clients?

November 1, 2018 by Mitch Taylor
Are you naked in front of your clientsAre you naked in front of your clients?   Are you naked in front of your clients?  You should be. But Mitch...I don't want to be naked in front of my clients...are you kidding me?  Of course...I'm not talking about actually physically being naked but letting yourself truly be exposed.  Sharing the real "you". Many of us put up a "business" front of who we are. Your clients (the ones who still choose to book you even though you weren't genuine in the first place with them) are missing out.  You miss sales, you miss referrals...you miss connections...you miss LIFE. Why? All because you aren't co... [read more]

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.) Alright….I looked in the mirror….now what???  Well…what do you see? Be cautious here. This is the time to reflect.  To really... [read more]

Wedding DJ Marketing Tips Made Easy By Terry Lewis #12

September 29, 2018 by Terry Lewis
Cont. from last week… BUCKETS AND PIPELINES Insider tip: Always ask the directory salesperson if brides have to check a box saying they are still looking for the service you offer. Some data sellers do not pre-qualify what services the bride still needs and lump all their data together meaning you could potentially receive a ton of leads for brides wanting X while you specialist in Y, frustrating both parties. What to do with the data you’ve bought?  Follow-up, follow-up then follow-up again. Here are some options: Post  Impress prospects by mailing information or a sample purposefully designed to grab their atten... [read more]

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]

Wedding DJ Marketing Tips Made Easy By Terry Lewis #10

September 15, 2018 by Terry Lewis
Cont. from last week… 2: I don’t need to collect data, if they like me, they’ll get in touch and book me I use to think like this, but the reality is, most won’t. Yes, it happened a few times, but I soon realised the truth that brides may well have liked me at the fair and taken my marketing material home with all the others, but what if my card or brochure got lost and could not be found when the bride was ready to contact me? I’d have no choice but to say goodbye to my lead even if the bride was intent on booking because what I effectively did was abdicate the responsibility of the booking to the bride when I should ...
