Time Part 1

May 24, 2018 by Mitch Taylor
Time Mitch Taylor Mobile BeatTime   Time is our biggest asset and liability all in one.  Do you spend your time or do you invest your time?  Time is fleeting they say and for the life of a mobile DJ there has never been a truer phrase written. Do you have a wife?  Children?  Family or loved ones?  Most people, including my wife, work during the day and have the weekends off.  Our busiest times of the year are when our loved ones and families have time off and wish to spend it with us.  So what's a DJ to do?  The answer:  prioritize. Just as financial advisors tell you to always pay yourself first (savings ... [read more]

The Mirror Part 2

May 22, 2018 by Mitch Taylor
Last week we talked about the mirror and challenged you with “How often are you looking in the mirror?”  Do you regularly review sales and performance sessions? Here’s a couple more tips and suggestions to help you look in the mirror.  First, you need to ask your client for permission. Know the laws in your state but always get permission first. It could be as simple as “Hey...maybe you or your fiance might say something that we could use later on for your wedding.  :)” More than likely they will forget about the recording during your full conversation with them and when they talk about their first dance or their danc...

Ways To Be Kind Part 2

May 8, 2018 by Mitch Taylor
Ways To Be Kind Mitch Taylor Mobile Beat MagazineLast week I talked about the connection that was developed between Jeremy Brech and myself and how it kind of started unkind, but quickly transitioned.  I’d like to share and highlight another example of being kind and how that has impacted a marketplace.   Dean Carlson is a fellow writer and speaker in the DJ industry, and has trained dozens if not hundreds of DJs over the years.  He spoke at Midwest DJs Live 9, and while it wasn’t the entire focus of his talk, he had a strong conversation about mentorship.  In his talk Dean stated he had three different competitor...

Ways To Be Kind Part 1

May 1, 2018 by Mitch Taylor
Ways To Be Kind Mitch Taylor Mobile Beat MagazineIn any moment, one can change a life.  At Midwest DJs Live 9 last year I shared a story during Vickie Musni and my Creating Connections seminar.  The story I shared is about the first time I met a now good friend of mine and how that relationship developed after our first meeting.  I’ll share that with you now.   The place was Mobile Beat Las Vegas 2010 I believe I was at the WEDGuild Open House in the back of the room at a table with my very first product for sale on it, Sales Success from A to Z audio mp3.   A guy approached the table and grabbed  one of my CDs off...

Like Attracts Like Part 2

April 24, 2018 by Mitch Taylor
Like Attracts Like, Customer Service, Business, Mitch Taylor, Taylored Sales, #LiveAt755Like Attracts Like Part 2  This week we finish up last week’s article of Like Attracts Like.  This axiom also goes on the flip side of things. The flip side is...how do you treat other people?  If you ask for a discount on something, but yet you already know the discount time is passed, who are you attracting?  I read a post recently from a DJ who was very negative towards the property he stayed at when attending a DJ conference (and it wasn’t the host property).  He complained about the quality of the property but yet I’m sure as I...

Like Attracts Like

April 17, 2018 by Mitch Taylor
Like Attracts Like Like Attracts Like, Customer Service, Business, Mitch Taylor, Taylored Sales, #LiveAt755Recently I was having dinner with a good friend of mine.  We had a younger waiter and it was a very nice establishment with a 1940s Speakeasy kind of vibe if you will. While the waiter did a good job he didn't necessarily do it in a way that spoke to what that business was going for with their marketing.  Like attracts like. Think about your business. Are you delivering high-end, middle of the road, or budget? If you’ve got a DJ business where you’re going after clubs and bars, then all of your staff better know the st... [read more]
