The School Market: Entertaining All AgesMB 173 cover-sm

To a non-DJ, entertaining young people might seem like an easy thing to do. But when it comes to the kinds of services DJs provide, the school market can be just as challenging as the wedding or corporate arenas… and just as rewarding too, when done well.

In this issue, we offer some great ideas and advice for taking on this market niche, with contributions from acknowledged experts with many years of youth event experience like Geoff Carlisle, Arnoldo Offermann and Rob Ferre.

We also bring back sales guru Jeffrey Gitomer’s column, as we begin ramping up to his power-packed presentation at MBLV21, next March. Enjoy!
