DJ Tips In Under A Minute: Create A Twitter Account To Follow The Industry Leaders.

December 20, 2018 by DJ Jay
All right. DJ tips in under a minute. This is my Twitter account. I am @djjayb. This is my account, this is where I go. I have followers, I follow people.

If you don't have a Twitter account, I think it's important that you get one if for no other reason than to hear and see what professionals -- because the thing about Twitter unlike Facebook is Twitter is filled with everyone. It's harder on Facebook to go to somebody's page and see what Anthony Robins is saying or what a famous wedding designer is saying. You can do that on Twitter pretty easily. So if you d...

December 17, 2018 by Mobile Beat
If you’re travelling to the United States this year, or if you live in the US, there are a great many music festivals during all months and all over the vast country.  These festivals usually feature one type of music so you can travel from venue to venue, sightsee on the way, and hear fantastic music throughout your trip.  One thing about the many music festivals that dot the landscape: they compete to some extent with casinos that also dot the landscape.  But the people who come to these music festivals are generally content to play free casino games on their laptop or mobile device! In this short piece, we’ll focus on music festivals in North Carolina.  As relatively small as North Carolina is, it has a very large selection of festivals.

December 13, 2018 by DJ Jay
DJ tips in under a minute. Do you see in the front of my table here I have no cords? I'm trying something today that I don't normally do, because I don't have my Skrim. So there are some exposed cords and cables, but what I've tried is this, running everything through the back of my controller. So I have my speaker cords, I have my [inaudible] output to my other mixer, this is my backup, of course, with [inaudible] running booth out today, because I have a big party and I need booths.

Smart DJ Tips: Should DJs Advertise on The Knot, Wedding Wire, Google, or Other Website?

December 10, 2018 by Jason Rubio
When it comes to the DJ business, there are many different facets of the DJ world. You can be a bar/club DJ, a DJ who focuses on music production and remixes, or a DJ who focuses on private events, such as weddings and parties. In many cases, you can be all three (I've done all three). :) When you decide that you're ready to take your DJ business to the next level, you're likely considering advertising, marketing, SEO, etc. Let's face it, it's a very competitive business, and in order to be in business and thrive, you have to be found by your target market. Where you decide to advertise should greatly depend on who your target market is. One of my business mentors once told me that there are three important things about business: "location, location, location. Though the business world has changed gre... [read more]

December 6, 2018 by Christos Nikas
Hey Mr. DJ, A huge welcome and thanx for being here. You are amazing. EVERY PIECE OF EQUIPMENT WE OWN IS A TOOL.
