CSNL Video Projector Mount System – Easy Speaker Stand / Tripod Mount

April 16, 2018 by Brian S. Redd
My friend, Art, had a problem a couple of weeks ago. He was trying to mount a projector, but he was limited on space and the system he had wasn't working out real well for him. So I showed him this. This is the video projector mount system from Colorado Sound and Light or CSNL.com. Now, this allows you to mount virtually any projector on top of a tripod and it's completely adjustable. It comes with this base that allows you to do up to a 4 point projector mount. We only need three points on this one. It also has all the hardware you need to mount it, such as spacers, screws, and washers. Now, all you have to do is take this color and screw it on to the projector base. And then put it on top of your tripod. Lock the clamp down, and you're good to go. And as you can see, it's fully adjustable. Art:  I didn't... [read more]

Keeping the Heat on When Wedding Season Goes Cold – By Robert Lindquist

April 12, 2018 by Robert Lindquist
T here’s no way around it. For most DJs, wedding are the holy grail. The rub is, most wedding couples prefer to have and to hold their ceremony when it’s sunny and nice—so they can follow their Pinterest inspired exchange of vows with a friendly game of cocktail hour Cornhole. That’s fine if you live in an area where it’s all good news when you turn on the Weather Channel. Unfortunately, the vast majority of North Americans experience four seasons, and at least one of those involves ice scrapers and snow shovels. Now, just because the temperature drops below zero doesn’t mean the number of weddings follows suit. Some couples a... [read more]

DJ Tips In Under A Minute Syncing Your Drives For Gigs.

April 12, 2018 by DJ Jay
All right. DJ tips in under a minute. This is what I use, a free program called Allway Sync and I believe it is allwaysync.com and this is what I use to match up my drives. Right now I am syncing up two drives. So I have all the information, the files that I've deleted from this drive to this drive. As you can see, it says, does not exist. And then down here I have what files are moving into where. So I have two drives that I use. One is a standard drive and the other one is my backup. And actually, you've seen the one with the wide cord, that's the white cord and then right here, that's the backup. So I just want everything to be the same. So what I'll do is sync it all up and then go through and clean. I'm sure I can set this to clean, I just haven't figured out yet. So if you're looking for a sync program... [read more]

How to Book More Corporate Gigs – By Staci Nichols

April 11, 2018 by BradFeingold
I heart corporate gigs! If you aren’t sure why DJing corporate events rocks, let me spell it out real quick: • Super low-key planning process (typically) and low-drama events. • Companies generally have “change to throw” (to quote Iggy Azalea) • They frequently take place mid-week or early in the day • The photo booth is often an easy up-sell •  Unless you really screw up, repeat business is very likely And how great does it look on your resume to say you’ve handled events for companies like LA Fitness, Boost Mobile, New York & Co, the Marriott, San Diego State University, the Marine Corps, and Baskin Robbins? Those are some of the companies I’ve worked for... and I’m perfectly happy “brand associating” with them. ... [read more]

Qualify Your Potentials

April 11, 2018 by Jordan Nelson
According to the sales funnel model, we are going to have a large number of people who are aware of our company, a smaller amount that become potential clients, and an even smaller amount that translate into sales. Each lead can require a substantial amount of time to educate and inform about our services before we actually seal the deal, and how much time you have to spend to convince a potential client that you're the right company for them can vary wildly. While a few golden leads come in that are ready to sign a contract the second you pick up a phone, many more start their inquiries with "How much do you charge?" For beginning DJ companies, you may have plenty of time to devote to answering the price question and having long, detailed conversations about the benefits of professional entertainment. As...

Smart DJ Tips: Dressing Appropriately For Every Event

April 11, 2018 by Jason Rubio
Dress codes are everywhere. Every job has a dress code; schools have dress codes, even businesses such as a restaurant or bar, have a dress code - door guys love to be the enforcers of the dress code. :) So the question is, should DJs or DJ companies have a dress code, too? As a DJ & Photo Booth company owner (Austin's Best DJs & Photo Booths) my answer is yes, absolutely! We have a company dress code policy, but our dress code depends on the event. Every staff member should dress appropriately. We don't want our DJs or photo booth staff showing up to a formal event, dressed like a bar/club DJ. No jeans, no baseball cap, no t-shirts, etc. I know our staff may not completely agree with it, but they get it, and, they have a choice. They don't have to follow our dress code at all, but they also won't ... [read more]

Right in Your Own Back Yard – Could You Be Missing Opportunities? – By Stu Chisholm

April 10, 2018 by BradFeingold
As all of my family and friends can attest, my schedule is a mess. Not only do I have seven separate divisions of my own company that do different things keeping me busy, but I also have many outside interests. For one thing, I’m a huge science-fiction nerd and belong to a meetup group. We meet bi-weekly to discuss all things sci-fi, plan conventions and presentations, and do it all over cheap food at a local diner. Another group I belong to champions church- state separation issues, and yet another is the local Toastmaster’s, where I try to maintain and improve my public speaking chops. All in all, I attend some five different hobby/ special interest meetups as well as a monthly professional gathering of my fellow Licensed Massage Therapists, my latest venture and one of the seven divisions I men...

Mobile Beat Magazine – Traps – By Todd Mitchem

April 9, 2018 by BradFeingold
THE NUMBER ONE ISSUE ALL DJS HAVE AND MOST REFUSE TO ADDRESS I have worked hard for years to understand the audience and what makes them tick. While a particular DJ or MC may have a great personality or energy, they most likely lack an understanding of the one deficit this article will help to solve. They choose to put themselves in bondage at the onset of an event in a way they don’t realize, while destroying any chances that the audience will indeed respond they way intended. In other words, the DJ becomes trapped. I define a trap as a question you ask to the audience or a throwaway comment that does not deliver maximum audience participation. For example, you may walk in front of an audience and ask, “Who is ready to have a good time tonight?” While you innocently think yo... [read more]
