Perspective

October 19, 2017 by Mitch Taylor
Perspective (One Step Back) I'm a firm believer in the motto "Work Hard...Play Hard" and would also advise one more two word phrase to follow that.  "Live Hard"  To me the epitome of the phrase "Live Hard" is my good friend Sean "Big Daddy" McKee.  If you haven't met this man PLEASE do yourself a favor, reach out on Facebook and get to know the inspiration that is Big Daddy.  Big Daddy is a two time cancer survivor and a man who does more events in a week than I sometimes do in a month.  His dedication to having a positive impact on people's everyday lives is an inspiratio ...

DJ Tips In Under A Minute: Use Dot Laser Lights After The Formal Photos Are Done.

October 19, 2017 by DJ Jay
DJ Jay with DJ tips in under a minute. Most of us have one of these lights, these beautiful little laser lights, whether it's micro, whether it's a regular one, whether it's the galaxian, whether it's the atmospheric, a small one, a big one, different companies, I have lights from all different companies, but as much as I like them and as cool as I think they look, I've found out by talking to photographers that they're not keen on the little red and green dots on people. So outside of just showing them strictly on the ceiling, try this, run them after all the main photos are done. Have the light, tell the photographer, tell your client, tell everybody, you know what, I'm going to run these cool lights once your photos are done for all the formalities, special dances. We're going to kick the lights down and I'm going to run lasers everywhere, because it does look good. It separates you ... [read more]

One of the most prominent things I learned: there are wwwaaaaayy ... [read more]

Grammar and the Mobile DJ

October 18, 2017 by Jordan Nelson
Have you ever received feedback from a client that completely caught you off guard? After a steady stream of "he was a great DJ and played great music" comments, you all of a sudden get an email, text, or review from a recent customer you didn't see coming from a mile away. Here is one comment I received after a recent sales call with a potential bride's mother; "Jordan, we would love to get the contract signed ASAP! After my daughter received your email she called to tell me that you were well spoken, and that she could tell from the way you explained your services that you were a professional who knew what he was doing." While I enjoyed the compliment, it was the unusual nature of it that caught me off guard. "Cool pictures" and "great reviews" are remarks we probably all hear often, but "well spoken" is not one I hear regularly hear after delivering my sales pitch. But ... [read more]

The Curse of Knowledge: How Effectively Are You Communicating?

October 17, 2017 by Justin Reid
I’ve been doing some work to my company’s website recently and I noticed a few places that needed some more detail and explanation. You know, information that I assumed a potential client would know, but didn’t include. Although seemingly obvious, it hit me. Because I eat, sleep, breathe our business and all of the details, I had failed to include certain information that a potential client needed to know. I realized that this was most likely a common problem, but I had no idea that this was a “thing”. It wasn’t until I was reading Alan Berg’s “Shut Up and Sell More” that I realized I was stricken ...
