The Internet is used by millions daily to search for everything from movie listings to telephone numbers. Traditional directories have basically become extinct. here are five benefits of online DJ marketing to help increase the visibility of your offline business.
There are several effective ways for local businesses to market online. For a disc jockey, the Internet a powerful tool to reach millions of potential customers with the click of a mouse. the mobile DJ business is on the rise, and finding ways to standout from the competition is the only way to stay competitive in this business.
Offline vs. Online Marketing
Offline marketing can be quite expensive when you think about running ads in the local newspaper, listing in the Yellow Pages, printing and distributing flyers, etc. while word of mouth is free advertising, it is often contained to a specific group of people who already know about your business. Your goal is to expand and increase your mobile business to others who may not have heard of you.
Online marketing allows one to create a website, drive traffic to the site, and build a list of subscribers who can be marketed to repeatedly. Promotions, sales, upcoming events can all be sent to your list once you have created it. when you have an advertising strategy in place, you can track and target potential customers based on geographic locations, age group, and other factors which makes it easier to connect with local customers.
The major search engines created local maps so business owners can be found quickly and hassle free. Adding your demographics will increase your chances of exposure when a potential customer searches for local entertainment, DJs or mobile DJs. This also works with mobile maps so people can even find you on the go. This is an added bonus for your DJ marketing business.
Pay Per Click Advertising
When you are searching the web, you may have noticed ads on the top and normally to the right of your results page. these are pay per click ads which have proven to be a great resource for local businesses. these ads are based on keyword searches that you bid on. the highest bidder for any given keyword will get the most exposure. while this marketing tool does cost, it is far less than taking out ad space in your local newspaper.
Online Business Directory
The Internet is flooded with directories. If you have ever advertised in a local business directory you know that it is not cheap and the truth is, with everyone performing searches on the internet, it is frankly, just a waste of money. Online directories allow you to select the category you wish to be listed in, add your business name, location, telephone number, website URL, and Email address. some directories allow you to add a brief overview of your products or services. Not only is this an effective way to highlight your business, but you are building a brand online.
Because individuals prefer to receive information in different forms, you want to reach all audiences. while a traditional website can offer content, pictures, and even music; video can introduce your business to the world. Through video you are able to add personality to your website, show potential customers your face and formerly introduce yourself. Video can be used to show your equipment, demonstrate what you do, as well as let potential customers know what services you offer. This can break the ice for people who are hesitant to do business with unfamiliar faces.
There are many ways to promote your offline business online. these are just five valuable ways DJ marketing can be successful for your mobile business. the exposure is incredible and your business will increase if your marketing strategy is executed properly.
THE country’s largest mobile phone provider Smart Communications Inc. unveiled on Friday its limited-edition Data plan 1000, a postpaid subscription service which comes with an abundance of free calls, short messaging service (SMS) and mobile Internet, bundled with a choice from a slew of “power” smartphones at discounted and amortized prices. “This is an offer which combines a best-value plan with the best smartphone deal,” said Gio Bacareza, head of Broadband Internet and Data Services at Smart.according the company, it is a key component to all Smart subscribers to have access to the Internet through their smartphones.Smart’s Data plan 1000 comes with free 500 SMS to all networks, 500 voice minutes to any number within the Smart network, and 1 gigabyte worth of data transfer.the monthly service fee is P1,000.Smart and parent company Philippine Long Distance Telephone co. are undertaking a P67.1-billion network transformation program, which was launched in early 2011. Originally slated for completion in three years, the program has been fast-tracked and is scheduled for completion by the middle of this year.
Samsung Announces Galaxy Note Release Date – Will There Be A Market For The Tablet-Smartphone Hybrid?
Samsung will release its tablet-smartphone hybrid, the Galaxy Note, on February 19th. For AT&T subscribers the massive smartphone will only set you back $299 with a two-year contract.
But will consumers buy up the massive smartphones? a 5.3″ touch screen has many advantages, but it has one pretty big disadvantage, too: it might be too big for most smartphone users. and it might be too small to appeal to the tablet market. Capturing that middle ground may be difficult.
The device will be sold in blue and white and will run overAT&T’s 4G LTE network.
It boasts a high-resolution screen (1280 x 800) and includes an S Pen stylus. The stylus is a new twist on the traditional smartphone, giving artists and creative types the ability to sketch on their phone, and allowing business types to take notes and make notations on maps and other documents.
Other features include a 1.5 GHz dual-core processor, an 8-megapixel rear-facing camera, a 2-megapixel front-facing camera and 1 GB of RAM.
Don’t get me wrong – this phone looks pretty amazing. I don’t actually spend a lot of time talking on my phone, so the size wouldn’t be a problem for me.
As someone who gets annoyed endlessly by the cramped size of most touchscreen keyboards, the 5.3″ screen sounds perfect. It also makes sense for mobile gamers and video streaming.
I’m not sure if it makes sense for the broader market however.

Now that Netflix has announced its plan to roll out service to Canada (except for Quebec, temporarily), there is certainly a level of excitement for those with a thirst for content via the Internet, but the move also raises some questions on what the future of the rental market will be in Canada.
No definitive date was given for the launch in Monday’s announcement, though the fall is the timeframe we can expect. This will be Netflix’s first expansion outside of the United States, and its business model of “unlimited” streaming should make things very interesting when coupled with Canadian Internet providers’ dreaded practice of “throttling” connections once bandwidth exceeds certain limits.
Since some of those providers also happen to offer satellite and cable TV services, the presence of Netflix might offer a level of competition that could worry the incumbents. The Netflix business model is based on monthly subscription plans that start at US$8.99 for customers in the U.S., which then allows subscribers to stream and watch whatever TV shows and movies they want without time limits through a Netflix-enabled device. The list of those continues to grow, but here is the gamut based on Netflix’s media kit:
“Among the large and expanding base of devices that can stream movies and TV episodes from Netflix right to members’ TVs are Microsoft’s Xbox 360 and Sony’s PS3 game consoles and, Nintendo’s Wii console; Blu-ray disc players from Samsung, LG and Insignia; Internet TVs from LG, Sony and VIZIO; the Roku digital video player and TiVo digital video recorders; and Apple’s iPad.”
This list should’ve also noted that PCs and Macs can playback Netflix-streamed content just as easily, meaning that you should be able to watch it on your TV if your computer is connected to it. The Roku digital video player isn’t available in Canada, though that may change once Netflix is up and running here.
While not everything Netflix offers is available for streaming, the sheer level of choice is still quite staggering. And though Hulu isn’t available in Canada, I’ve managed to enjoy it in the past using VPN tunneling applications to fool it into thinking I’m in the U.S. The abundant content and simplicity of the platform made it easy to enjoy so much content, especially shows from the past. And now that high-definition viewing is part of the mix, the possibilities continue to grow.
With ballooning cable and satellite bills, the temptation to try services like these will only grow, especially since broadband speeds will surely continue to improve. The problem is that this is largely true of large urban centres in the country. there are still pockets of rural Canada that either have to resort to dial-up (yes, dial-up) or satellite Internet — or worse yet — aren’t able to gain access at all. The 3G Internet sticks showed promise, but are restricted to areas with 3G access. And those options aren’t enough to be able to stream high-quality content to big flat-panel TVs.
Also, Netflix won’t be offering its mail-order movie service in Canada, which means competitors like Zip.ca can feel a little bit safer. but Zip had announced plans to start a streaming service too some time ago. What might happen with that now? And what about Rogers and its On Demand Online service? The level of choice currently pales in comparison to what Netflix can offer on a rainy day. even Apple’s iTunes Store offers the ability to rent and buy films, but the ecosystem is too closed for some. plus, Apple has seemed disinterested in pushing the Apple TV set top box to be more than it already is. You can even rent and stream movies from your Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3. Services like these are popping up everywhere, it seems.
The demise of the brick-and-mortar video store, like Blockbuster, has been proclaimed by pundits for years, but stores are still running. Much like music stores, video stores could be doomed unless they diversify their business models to sell more than just DVDs, Blu-ray discs and video games. This isn’t to suggest that Netflix will have begun a revolution here once it launches. It’s been premature to suggest that music stores, video stores and bookstores will die out quickly because of the Internet’s ability to deliver content quickly and effectively from within consumers’ homes.
Needless to say, Blockbuster and other video stores still operate in the U.S., despite Netflix having offered its streaming service for at least a couple of years. The same trend is likely to continue here, particularly since those who love Blu-ray won’t find Netflix’s 720p streams acceptable enough. For the moment, getting Blu-ray content essentially means going to a video store or using online services to buy or rent titles. in addition, video stores may be limited in how much they can carry in each location, but they aren’t really hindered by licensing deals. We’ll see if this becomes an issue for Netflix’s entry into Canada.
In a curious move, Netflix has blacked out its American site to those in Canada. try going to Netflix.com from Canada, and you’re redirected to Netflix.ca. You can type in your email to get updates on progress, but that’s about it. No list of what will be available, what pricing structure will look like and any other information of real value.
Time will tell how the implementation goes, but rest assured, the first week Netflix is up and running will say a lot about where it might be able to take Canadians.
