DJ Tips In Under A Minute: Carry Hand Sanitizer And Mints To Your Events.

November 1, 2018 by DJ Jay
All right. DJ tips in under a minute. Check it out, mints, hand sanitizer, two things that I keep in my control at all times, because throughout the night I may shake hands with people, I might drink or eat something and I think two parts of this job is not only good appearance, but also covering yourself. The biggest thing with this one is the fact that I'm paranoid about getting sick. So I'm one of those who always has hand sanitizer with them, guys and it seems to work. Knock on wood, I don't really get sick. So go to your gigs, bring some mints, bring some hand sanitizer, bring whatever you need to keep you fresh and composed. You know, I think we all bring an extra shirt, we all bring an extra t-shirt, we bring this, this and this, but the basic little stuff we forget. So hand sanitizer and mints, DJ ti... [read more]

Crossing the “Mid-Priced Threshold”

October 31, 2018 by Jordan Nelson
When I first moved to Salt Lake City from my small hometown 3 years ago, I wasn't charging very much as a DJ. In fact, I was trying so hard to fill my calendar that I was taking every event I could at whatever price I could negotiate for. As you can imagine, I was underpaid and overworked. I was also determined to improve my company (and my meager income), and so I began a year and a half long experiment in raising my prices. The strangest thing happened, however - an unexpected trend in the amount of success I had closing my sales that I now call the "Mid-Priced Threshold." You see, I was booking weddings in the $300-$500 range when I first arrived in this new city. I raised my prices incrementally, by about $100 or $200 every couple of months. As expected, I experienced an initial dip in my sales as my p... [read more]

DJ Tips In Under A Minute: Comfortable And Reliable Dr. Marten Shoes.

October 25, 2018 by DJ Jay
All right. DJ tips in under a minute, proper footwear. Believe it or not, that -- those are my Doc Marten oxfords. I've been wearing Doc Marten shoes to events for about 16 years now. Some of you may or may not know before I started my own company, I was lead DJ for a yacht company. Boats are made of steel, steel vibrates and that's what we stood on. So I would do just about five to seven events a week standing on steel vibrating for four to five hours and I found that I, fortunately, don't have any back issues. So I credit it with these bad boys. I don't know how well you can see them, but the Doc Martens. They don't go great with suits, but they're very comfortable with the aerosol and I think it helps dramatically. So DJ tips in under a minute.   ... [read more]

Want to Improve? Being Coddled Isn’t The Answer

October 24, 2018 by Jordan Nelson
Happy Wednesday friends and welcome to another edition of "This article was inspired by a Facebook post!" In today's story, we examine a local post by a new member of a DJ group who shares a photo of his ceremony setup and asks to be critiqued. Now, this takes a lot of guts, and in reality, the DJ definitely needed some guidance to tidy up his work area a little. But what struck me as strange, however, was a DJ who began commenting on the photo saying things like "You guys make me laugh! Leave him alone!" and "You do you man, don't listen to DJs!" Listen, the internet is a tough place as it is, and I'm all about increasing the overall le... [read more]

Wedding DJ Marketing Tips Made Easy By Terry Lewis #15

October 19, 2018 by Terry Lewis
Cont. from last week… Tony Robbins and Brendon Burchard are both mentors to whom I will be forever thankful to because of the wisdom they taught me including their guidance on not going through a ‘to do list’ daily for the sake of being busy; instead they got me focused on the outcomes I needed to achieve daily, weekly and monthly to mark progress on my business. They got me to carry out whatever activities were necessary to get the desired results with the minimum of distractions. With their help, I got comfortable putting my phone on the ‘do not disturb’ setting during my ‘Money Hours’ so I could maximise productivity.... [read more]
