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.

"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.

November 1, 2019 by Matthew Campbell
Setting up your Google Ads campaigns correctly could determine your success or failure.  In part 1, I discussed the initial setup settings for Google Ads campaigns.  Now, you will learn the structure of campaigns and ad groups, Each Google Ads campaign has its own budget.  So, if you wish to spend $50 per day, then your campaign budget should be set at $50 per day.  If you have a campaign for lighting and another campaign for wedding DJ, then you can distribute your $50 per day budget to get the best return on investment such as $35 for wedding DJ and $15 for lighting.  You also have the option to have a shared budget between campaigns.  If you want to spend your budget on both lighting and wedding DJ searches to maximize orders, then, you can have 1 campaign and 2 ad groups for lighting and wedding ...

Smart DJ Tips: 5 Tips to Stand Out in a Saturated Market

October 14, 2019 by Jason Alexander
When it comes to the DJ business, we all know that there are numerous DJs. It seems as though the market is getting more and more crowded, every month! You may or may not notice, depending on your region or market.

October 13, 2019 by Mobile Beat

This is because of the advancement of technology, which has led to the development of new ways of improving the experience of canadian gambling online. The online gambling market is rapidly growing since playing slot or casino games online has become very popular among gamblers, and this has boosted the sector.
