DJ Tips In Under A Minute: Mark Ferrell Com

July 4, 2019 by DJ Jay
All right. DJ tips in under a minute. This is Mark Ferrell. There's his name. He has a program called the MarBecca Method. It's a training method, comes in, I believe, gold, bronze, silver, might even have platinum different levels DJs go and attend this. They learn all the intricacies and ins and outs of being a better DJ, a better speaker, a better MC and most importantly, a better entertainer. I saw him speak in Las Vegas in 2000 and it was captivating. It has to do with being a respected professional individual and being a great entertainer as a DJ. So his technique and his thoughts are a little bit different than what you might be accustomed to, but it is well worth going over his website, reading it and maybe signing up to get something like his Getting Your Worth seminar. I am going to, because I need ... [read more]

I’m Still Cool, Right?

October 4, 2018 by Michael Cordeiro
Time has a way of creeping up on you. One day you're out rocking events, living life and "BAM", you're 50. A half century is a blip on the cosmic scale, but for humans it's a milestone. When I was small, my parents had a black and white TV and we used to listen to Wolf Man Jack on AM radio. Car seats were optional and we played with toys instead of video games. Atari came out when I was a in the eighth grade and I learned to drive on a 5 speed.    Reaching a milestone like fifty makes you think and reflect a lot. Not so much on where I've been, but where I still want to go and the things I want to accomplish. The clock is ticking , always ti... [read more]

Smart DJ Tips: Why Your Google Business Page Ranking Matters, A LOT!

August 8, 2018 by Jason Alexander
When it comes to the rules of just about any business, there are three things to remember: Location Location Location For every business, location matters, a lot! Just a few years ago, brick and mortar stores were dominant and your actual physical location mattered a lot. Now, it's all about online presence. Particularly with Google, which has about 75% of the search engine traffic. Others such as Yahoo, Bing, and Baidu (search engine in China), hold a large audience at around 5-10% of the search engine traffic. Baidu is actually gaining ground, too! For now, let's just focus on Google and Yahoo/Bing. For the most part, Google is very dominant in the U.S. You have to give it to Google for their marketing and branding campaign. When your brand becomes a "verb" in the English language, you're d... [read more]
