MITZVAH MARKETING

Date: Monday Aug 9th, 2021 | Time & Location TBA

As one of the most profitable, yet elusive sectors of the mobile-entertainment world, bar/bat mitzvahs are highly desirable gigs for DJs all over the continent. However, booking these events can be a challenge – so how’s it done? DJX presenters Jordan St. Jacques (Ottawa’s Disc Jockey Marketing) and Ross Akselrad (Philly’s Pulse Entertainment) have the answers.

With their hard-hitting, hour-long seminar, they’ll outline how to position yourself digitally for mitzvah-specific customers (selling to both the parent and the child), and then how reach out to make the sale. Finally, they’ll teach you how to perform this very specialized event. From sales to performance, this session will set you straight on the mitzvah market.

PREFERRED VENDOR LISTS

Date: Tuesday Aug 10th, 2021 | Description TBA

If there’s a Holy Grail of the mobile-entertainment industry, it’s being put on a venue’s Preferred-Vendor List. The problem is… every other mobile jock knows this and the competition to get on these lists is intense. So, how do you gain an edge to compete for these spots? How do you win? DJX presents a trio of pros – tech evangelist Jordan St. Jacques (Canada’s Digitera), plus mobile entrepreneurs Ross Akselrad (Philly’s Pulse Entertainment), and Ken Cosco (Boston’s A Touch of Class DJs) – who’ll show you the way.

Learn how to: set up your digitals so you project professionalism to anyone looking you up online; properly approach venues to get on those valuable lists; maximize referral commissions; and service the venue clients in a manner that impresses both the client and venue. As a bonus, we’ll offer recommendations on how to deal with overzealous venues when they try to “push the envelope too hard.” Get listed and advance.
