Statements You Need In Your DJ Contract

November 25, 2016

Signing a Contract

Back in the day, your word was your bond; if it was said, it was as good as done. Today, if something isn’t said, it doesn’t apply and has no legal bearing, especially when it comes to paying for services. Hopefully, you’re not offering your services without a legally binding contract or written agreement in place. If you’re not, there’s no better time than the present to consider the most important aspects of your written contract agreements. Specificity is key to ensuring both you and your client are satisfied with mutually agreed-upon services and terms. (more…)

How Being A Video DJ Can Set Your Business Apart

November 21, 2016

Video DJ

Every DJ can claim they’re the best. They can have the most extensive library and the greatest sets. They can understand how to read the crowd and keep people energized and excited for hours. Those are great accolades to have, but other DJs can say they do the same. The question shouldn’t be about being a “good” DJ; it should be about being a unique DJ. If you can’t confidently answer the question, “What sets you apart from everyone else?” you might want to consider adding videos to your audio presentation.

More Bells & Whistles

Your favorite DJ is your favorite DJ for a reason. He does something that appeals to you, something that is unique to his set and presentation. Video DJing could be your calling card – that thing people remember you for (aside from your amazing set). This could be the ticket to cultivating your notoriety. It can also increase your value in the entertainment industry, as visual content is one of the top content marketing strategies to date.

Less Competition

Video DJing, while it is gaining popularity, is not something most DJs offer. If you have the capability of offering video for your events, you become a member of the small, upper echelon of DJs who provide an exclusive experience for your clients and patrons. Plus, there is a serious financial aspect of this specialty, as many places that showcase video (and video DJing) are larger, commercialized venues that would pay more money for your services. That’s a win-win scenario.

Stronger Crowd Engagement

Great DJ’s know how to drop the right song at the right moment to win the crowd over. That’s expected. How many parties, weddings and events can your clientele attend where they get the added bonus of music videos synced perfectly alongside the tunes they’re rocking to? The combination of audio and video stimulation will increase engagement with others on the dancefloor as well as with you.

Also, consider the people who dance themselves sweaty for 15 to 20 minutes before needing a break. Grabbing a drink typically creates a subliminal pause in the party, but a lull in the action would be unlikely if you add videos to the occasion. Incorporating videos will not only more strongly involve your audience, but it will keep them engaged throughout the event. Video DJing is sure to keep their attention, as the crowd will be waiting to see what you drop next – musically and visually.

Social Media Connections

Being a video DJ can also increase your promotion efforts and help build and expand your event fanbase. With programs such as JammText, you can take video interaction to a new level by using social media and texting applications to post requests, crowd comments, photos and announcements. As people use social media and texts, JammText automatically creates a database of users, allowing you to send personal thanks to everyone for coming to your event. Furthermore, even if you don’t have a video for every song you want to play, JammText will automatically detect when you are not playing video and fill the screen, ensuring that you always have professional full-screen content. This is a revolutionary program that will set a new standard for video viability.

As a DJ, you undoubtedly access your creative flair as a connoisseur of sound; being a video DJ on top of that will enhance your professional visibility in a sometimes saturated market, as well as give your clients and event patrons a new perspective of how much fun social events should be.

Corporate DJing 101

November 14, 2016

Corporate DJ

DJs are like snowflakes: no two are alike. Sure, they all may have similar tracks in their libraries, but having a great library alone doesn’t make someone a good DJ. DJs come in all styles, preferences and packages. It’s a great thing, and it can sometimes be a bad thing when potential clients are looking for a specific type of entertainment for their upcoming events.


So Fresh and So Clean: Organizing Your Digital Library

November 7, 2016

Vinyl library

A DJ’s music library can be his personal stamp on his craft and business. Exclusives remixes, rare finds and extensive collections of current and classic songs can make or break any dance floor crowd or event experience. Having a large library is great, but if you don’t know how to organize your digital music, it really won’t mean anything. Mixing is all about the right song played in the moment, and that means you need to have your tracks organized and available to load up. Here are some tips to ensure that you can easily access the right song at the right time.
