Is Your Inbox Your Real Boss?

You Work For Yourself But Is Your Inbox Your Real Boss?

February 28, 2020 by Terry Lewis
Is Your Inbox Your Real Boss? Before bookings became a certainty in my business, I was often distracted from achieving goals by my inbox, and I didn't even know it! I'd wake, check emails and instantly react to messages that had nothing to do with motivating engaged couples to book me, the next thing I knew, the morning was gone and sometimes part of the afternoon too! I was being bossed around by other peoples messages that were not helping me to fill the booking gaps in my calendar - can you relate to that? If you do, do you think you need to fire yourself and re-hire a more business-focused version of ... [read more]

25 Point Landing Page Checklist

January 9, 2020 by Terry Lewis
At the beginning of each year, I set one big goal. In 2011 it was to improve the appeal of my website so brides and grooms would: 1) Hang around longer, and 2) Click my call to action to enquire.

Smart DJ Tips: Add Options to Add Profits!

December 4, 2019 by Jason Alexander
When it comes to the DJ business, it seems as though every year, clients want more and more options for their weddings or events. Many DJs and DJ companies are choosing to offer more options. More options mean more money, of course! In my experience, it can certainly help increase your profits; however, there are a few risks and things to be aware of when providing more for your clients. Let's discuss these, now.   Cost - The first thing to consider when deciding what options to include is the investment needed. How much will these options cost you? How much money will you need to buy these upgrades or options? Perhaps you're considering uplighting. The price certainly varies on how much each light will cost. If you're considering other options, you'll certainly need to do your research to find o... [read more]

How Authentic is your Business?

November 20, 2019 by Michael Cordeiro
Advertising models are constantly changing. What worked ten years ago is no longer valid and what was working last week is old news. In a world where content is king, how do you sort through the fluff to be seen and heard? What's the new "buzz" word that will magically get you clients and referrals? I have one for you: Authenticity. This was a huge topic at the Wedding MBA in Vegas this past October. All of the social media and marketing seminars had the same message: Be authentic. So, what exactly does that mean? I'll skip the Webster's definition (you can google that) and get to the meat. Authenticity in your business is about communicat... [read more]

Get Brides & Grooms Fizzing with Excitement

November 20, 2019 by Terry Lewis
[caption id="attachment_126097" align="alignright" width="811"]Wedding Marketing Made Easy by Terry Lewis Wedding Marketing Made Easy by Terry Lewis[/caption] I've been paying close attention to the language better-paying couples use to describe the suppliers they love for more than half a decade. "We changed the date of our wedding to have them." "They were exactly what we are looking for." "S/he was the only one we looked at."   When you create a signature wedding experience that gets couples fizzing with excitement the moment they discover it, price is no longer the #1 buying trigger, emotion is. Has that ever happened t... [read more]

July 2, 2019 by Mobile Beat
What do you think your guests will remember most when your wedding is over? The first thing most guests say when asked about a wedding is whether they had fun or not.

Choosing the right DJ can make or break your wedding. Hiring the first DJ available for your wedding is far from the best way to choose the right DJ for your wedding.
