How To Make Use Of Torrent Sites As A DJ And Why VPNs Can Help

October 8, 2018 by Mobile Beat Staff Writer
The Potential Advantages Of A Torrent Tracker It is common knowledge that most torrent sites are associated with illegal content sharing, which determines entertainment media producing companies and governments to hunt them relentlessly. On the other hand, these can also be viewed as free sharing platforms that can be used for granting fast and convenient access to your artwork to a large group of people (and potentially even for advertising by using samples from your tracks). Indeed, there are examples of torrent services enabling, for instance, sharing of scientific data or other types of bulky data. Additionally, torrent websites can serve as an online place for collaboration between DJs, where they could share primary material needed to assemble or enhance their tracks or to create their mixes.

Wedding DJ Marketing Tips Made Easy By Terry Lewis #13

October 5, 2018 by Terry Lewis
Cont. from last week… The downside is your message is unlikely to be long and detailed so it can be difficult to convey all you wish to say. Used strategically with a click-through link to a landing page with more information, text messages are a super way to grab a couple’s attention and move them onto the next step towards booking you.  Facebook adverts appear alongside posts from families and friends, but what’s most important to you is that Facebook is where your brides and grooms are hanging out right now, and it is no wonder wedding business owners are advertising on Facebook more and more to reach their potential cust...

3 Simple Steps for Creating (And Maintaining) Happy Wedding Clients

October 5, 2018 by Vanessa Joy
CREATE HAPPY WEDDING CLIENTS We’ve all been there. The stress, the anxiety, and heartbreak you feel when one of your clients is upset with you, or worse, is flat-out angry and lashing out. If you haven’t had a client turn from Jekyll to Hyde, then consider yourself lucky. Fortunately, we can head off clients problems before they start by following 3 easy steps to maintaining client satisfaction. SEE THE RED FLAGS Hindsight is 20-20 so learning to spot a problem client before they become a client can be tricky, but it’ll save both you and your client a lot of misery later on. You have to decide what the red flags are for you because they’re not necessarily the same for everyone. For example, some DJs might consider it a problem client if they are handed a list of 100 songs she demands be played. Oth... [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]

DJ Tips In Under A Minute: Buy A Gobo Projector And Any Letters Of The Alphabet You Need.

October 4, 2018 by DJ Jay
All right. DJ tips in under a minute. I had a thought, it's not an original, new thought, but it's something I've discussed with other DJs over the years, these are Source Four Juniors and as you can see or maybe not see, they run $250, $300, $350, you can find them out there on the Internet maybe even used for $200, but if you want to make an investment in something that might have a good return, buy one of these, then go to a place that sells Gobos and don't get customs, get stock. Just get every letter of the alphabet or look at the names of the brides and grooms you have coming up and get the groom's last name's letter. Add this on as either a freebie or as a sell and say, I also provide your last name as a Gobo on the dance floor. If they want a customer, then figure out a price for it, but just somethin...

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]

DJ Tips In Under A Minute: Free Events And Charity Events, May Not Lead To More Bookings.

September 27, 2018 by DJ Jay
All right. DJ tips in under a minute. This is footage of a school event I do every year for free. I do it for free, because the little SWAT guy you're going to see come over here in a second is my son. There he is right there. That's one of the two that go to this school and every year they do a festival and they do it for charity for their school and donations. So I offer to do it for free so my kids can see what I do for a living and they can see me having fun and I can see them having fun and for the night, I'm the cool DJ. It's a two and a half, three-hour event, it's less than a mile from my house, I'm fine with it. But if you're offered free events for charities and other organizations, unless you firmly believe in the organization or charity, I've got to tell you, offer 50 percent off, don't do it for ...
