Mobile discos are no different than other DJS, except the fact that they can just pack up all of their equipment in their car, and then just move from one gig to another without much fuss, and without any major need to hire workers to do all these stuff for them. However, this doesn’t mean that the mobile discos don’t really have to do anything, and can act however they please. No, they need to know that being professional is really important, and that is why we have decided to give you some pointers and tell you how you ought to act if you ever wish to become a mobile disco.
Keep in mind that these pointers where given to us by an actual mobile wedding DJ in Berkshire, so you should read them carefully.
A good mobile disco should never arrive right on time the gig is supposed to start; no, a good DJ arrives at leas one hour early, because that gives them the time to set up their equipment, to check out the place they’re going to perform in, and of course, to see the people he is going to play the music to. You need to feel the mood and decide what kind of music should be just perfect for that particular gig, and you can only do it by arriving early. Also, it gives you a chance to meet up with the organizer of the party and make any last minute arrangements. You need to be in contact with the organizer at all times, even during your performance, and especially during the weddings, because there are so many things you need to look out for, like the cake cutting, the happy couple’s first dance, etc.
Of course, in order to get hired, the people first need to hear about you, and you can only accomplish that you marketing yourself and your business. There is more than one way of doing this, but the best one is having a website. There, the people can see what kind of parties you specialize in, what kind of music do you play, and can basically get to know you there without even meeting you in person. Your website needs to be well-designed and likeable, and not something you have just for the sake of having it. That doesn’t help anyone, and having a nice web presentation is just as important as having a nice behaviour in person.
Most mobile discos want to rise up and become professional DJs, but not all of them. However, if you are one of those, you need to know that this does not happen to everyone, and in order to accomplish it, it will take a lot of hard work, after hours, and good music. The people need to like you, and in order to get that, you need to be nice to people, honest, professional, and most importantly, you need to be good at your job. If you have all of those qualities, you’ll move up in no time.
