Redesign Your Website…or Your Routine? by Robert Lindquist

May 25, 2018 by Robert Lindquist
We live in a time of accelerating rate of change. We can’t assume that the marketing strategies that worked a year, or even six months ago, will produce the same results today. Technology is constantly revealing new opportunities in social and online marketing, and each one merits consideration. While it often seems like we’re fighting a losing battle to stay ahead of the game, one online marketing rule has remained consistent: Functionality trumps fancy. The most effective websites are not about animation and interactivity; they provide useful information. An extreme example is Craigslist. While I doubt anyone reading this would take such a brutal...

DJ Tips In Under A Minute: A New Service For Taking Credit Cards.

May 3, 2018 by DJ Jay
All right. DJ tips in under a minute. I don't know about you, but with my business, about 99 percent of it I get payment in checks or sometimes even cash, but I was looking for something to take credit cards. I use PayPal, because I have a PayPal account and it's easy, you can invoice clients, everything works fine, but I saw this and decided I would at least open an account. So there you go, that's the little Square swiper. If you look, you can see it has that slice in it where the credit card goes. I haven't used it yet. I have an account, it's drawn to my bank. So when I do use it, it would be deposited directly. There's no fee. It is a 2.75 percent per swipe. So if you don't accept credit cards and you're looking for something to have at a gig in case the client says, you're awesome, let's extend an hour,... [read more]

April 30, 2018 by Terry Lewis
If you find it hard to get booked at the price you want, the problem could stem from when you started your wedding business and the beliefs you allowed to influence your mind at start-up. Let's take a look why. It's likely you found your place in the wedding industry by turning an impressive talent into a dependable service that brides and grooms love - and if you ever doubt this fact, just look at your amazing testimonials!
