  • Business Plan

    Over the next 5 years with profit margins I will invest in additional equipment to hire more employees to work more events per year. I will partner with local businesses to develop relationships to assist them in promoting their businesses while doing events to draw more business while promoting my own. I am a 49 year old father of 5, as well as a full time educator looking to build and maintain this business so it will be strong enough to allow them to take over and expand it how they see fit. I have employees with disabilities that I am using the music business I am building to give them the training and skills needed to flourish on their own.

  • Self Identified Competition

    There are too many competitors in my industry to find a top 3. Everyone in my industry as a wedding/event DJ is my competitor as we are all vying for the same business based on service needs. Most people that I lose bids to have higher end equipment, higher end lighting, premium sound, more people working with them and package pricing. The way I make my quotes for weddings sets me far apart from my competitors. I use a door to door hourly rate which encompasses travel set up breakdown and the event time. I include a questionnaire asking when their event is, what they majored in school and current work field, as well as how they met. I provided discounts based on their answers so they see they get credit just for being them. They see the value that I put on who they are and give them money back. Most common quotes among competitors they send the number I send how I got there.
