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 ...

So a hallmark for successful wedding fairs is fou... [read more]

July 21, 2018 by Mobile Beat Staff Writer
Why should you have a contract? I have asked this question of many professionals in various industries. Without fail, the number one answer is, “to make sure I get paid.” While I certainly agree this is pretty important, the truth is, your contract is really not that important when it comes to winning in court against non-paying clients.
