K-12 School Market Success Coaching/Training
The K-12 School Market is one of the most lucrative performance and business markets available for performers, speakers and educational presenters.k12logo.jpg

It is also one of the most misunderstood markets among these artists. There are many misunderstandings and misperceptions of the “school market” by entertainers and presenters due primarily to the surface appearance of the market and the common perceptions created by those attempting to try the school market from only a very basic surface level.

Most of these artists approach the school market as a consumer market with consumer mentalities and approaches. This is the first mistake or misperception of this market. The school market is a professional market by all accounts with professional associations, resources, and specific businesses and vendors serving the market. Within this professional market are some very unique aspects that can mislead some to view it as a typical consumer market. It is important to understand this difference on all levels to create the proper approach, foundation, and business model when serving this market.

Entertainment Business Success Fundraising Program 
Fundraisers are big business. I firmly believe every professional entertainer and entertainment business should have a Fundraising offering. While there are many product-based fundraisers available, there is nothing at all comparable to a Live Entertainment Fundraiser. It features all of the elements to mutual success for both your business and the hosting group, creating a true win-win or win-win-win business model for all involved. Hosts are often able to earn far more than most product-based fundraisers, and most of all entertainment fundraisers can be a fun and exciting family and community event to create memories for years to come.

Our program has many built-in elements to often make our Live Event Entertainment Fundraiser an annual event, year after year, generating excellent return bookings.
The Entertainment Business Success Fundraising Program can take your performance to another level through offering a much more dynamic and all-encompassing production, featuring your headlining performance (or if you choose, other headlining performances that you represent or offer) combined with a multi-faceted fundraising program. This program includes everything you will need to offer a professional Live Entertainment Fundraiser to show your clients how to properly host, promote, sell tickets, create multiple sources of income, and how to assist them throughout the entire event from their first meeting to the wrap party for the hosts, their volunteers, and of course the performers.
Over 30 samples, templates, forms, letters, order forms, promotional materials, flyers, artwork, sample sponsorship packages, goal sheets, receipts, scripts, sales presentations, press release, and other resources to make the creation of your own materials easier than ever.
This is the set-by-step fundraising system that every performer should have in their business offerings. The entire program can literally pay for itself in just a booking or two depending on the options and models you choose. This program can easily add five, six, or even seven figures to your entertainment business. This is a true investment in your business success. For many, it can allow your entertainment business to open up a whole new aspect, area, or division to your business.
This is a time-tested program that will allow you and your business to profit and help your community hosts over and over again for years to come. Best of all it can be implemented by just a single person or if you prefer, your own fundraising team of specialists. Let the Entertainment Business Success Fundraising Program work for you!

Four-Wall Training Program & Coaching
The pinnacle for any entertainer is to have their own self-produced show whether in a permanent venue location or as a touring production. 2 and 4-Walling is the coveted operational business structure and operational format that make this possible. Its what has allowed touring to become the top-grossing aspect of many entertainers and entertainment productions, it is what 95% of Las Vegas and other resort and tourist areas are now based upon, and it is what performers strive to achieve as the pinnacle of their performing careers.

This coveted business model while simple is not easy. There are stories upon stories of performers that have struggled with 2/4-Walling, others that have lost large amounts of money in failed productions, and others that are too gun-shy to attempt to live their dreams. This is all due to two things - 1. Lack of understanding of the entire, all-aspects world of 4-Walling and EVERYTHING it entails, and 2. Not approaching this as its own performance market and how it is greatly different than most standard paid markets.
Even worse is trying to figure this out on your own without the proper knowledge, all necessary components required, and the proper business model. This simply is not something one can figure out on their own with only a surface understanding and your own thoughts. 
The EBS Four-Walling Program is the most complete, most accurate, and most detailed training in this very specific and yet most misunderstood business model of the live entertainment industry. You will learn all facets of this business model from complete model education including venue selection, requirements, negotiations and contracts, pre-production, marketing, press and media, the production, post-production, all of the possible streams and sources of income including all of the variable models within this business model, merchandising, sponsorships, investors, and so much more.
This is the ultimate training for any performer, entertainer, producer, promoter, and even venue owner/operator. Not for the faint of heart, but truly the real-world, non-sugar- coated, give-it-to-me-straight industry information that is rarely shared by those successful in this business model, and never offered in such completeness anywhere past or present. This is the real deal. 
Wedding Market Training & Coaching
The wedding market is a fantastic entertainment market. While a mainstay market for musicians, vocalists, bands and Disc Jockeys, it also offer some greta opportunities for other types of entertainers including variety performers and attractions.

While this is a professional market it is a very misunderstood market by many, especially those used to operating in consumer markets. Understand the market on an industry level allows entertainers and entertainment businesses to operate with a distinct advantage while offering a world of opportunity and profitability.

The wedding day is a lifetime event for many and along with this it carries a greta deal of professionalism and responsibility. Understanding the wedding market from within, from an industry perspective is key to success in the wedding market.

Our Wedding Market Training & Coaching reveals all if the industry insight and secrets to allow performers, entertainers, entertainment businesses, attractions, and others seeking to establish themselves in this longstanding professional market everything they need to offer your business the competitive advantage while quickly rising to the top of your market.

Mobile DJ Business Training & Coaching
The Disc Jockey industry has been one of the most versatile and established performance opportunities of the last 40 years. While DJs can perform at nightclubs, it is the Mobile Disc Jockey that offers the most opportunities. Mobile DJs can perform at such a wide variety of events (compared to many other types of performers) including weddings, corporate events, schools, cruise ships, private events, fairs and festivals, community events, and so many other pubic and private events and lifetime celebrations.

The DJ is many things at these events - they of course provide the right mix of music for each market and event in which they perform, but they are also a coordinator, host and master of ceremonies, and high-profile personality. They lead the event, they are the entertainer, and they control many facets of these events. They are a specialist that many consumers and event planners turn to for their specialized knowledge, experience, and expertise.

While a Mobile DJ wear many hats, there are many nuances to the business operations of each of these markets required in order to succeed and obtain this professional status.

Many DJs are “self-taught” doing things they way they want or feel without such professional insights which leads to many problems both in performance and well as in their business operations.

The Mobile DJ industry has grown and evolved to a very specialized industry with their own professional protocol, equipment, and even music to adhere to a level of standards. Our Mobile DJ Business Training & Coaching teaches you all of the aspects to a successful business operations. There is much more to being a DJ than just having a decent music library and doing some marketing. In this training and coaching you will learn all facets of this business operations, insight, specialized knowledge, market specialization, entertainment business sales, customer relations, customer retention, and literally so much more to arm you with everything you need to know to run a successful, highly-profitable business operation from its inception.

As one of the pioneers of the mobile DJ industry we were there from the very start and played a key part in creating some of the most successful DJs and business operations in the country. Now you can let our highly-coveted experience and reputation work for you and be a key part of your mobile DJ business success.
Mobile DJ Wedding Music Programming Training
The Wedding market is one of the greatest professional performance markets for a Disc Jockey. One of the most popular types of entertainment in the wedding market are DJs. While DJs are seen as providers of dance music at wedding receptions, there are many more great opportunities for DJs in the wedding market.

DJs can provide ceremony music, sound systems, ambient music, announcements, and so much more. DJs can be one of the key factors to the success of a wedding event.

Yet, with all of this being said, the majority of most DJs are terrible entertainers, offer no personality, just care to focus on their music mix, and typically play what they want or feel with possibly some pre-selected music requests from the bride and groom. Most DJ sound systems create poor unintelligible vocals when speaking, are not balanced properly, and most simply do not know how to select the proper music for the desired results necessary to entertain all of the guests and meet the expectations of everyone involved.

The proper selection of music AND how it is played is essential to the success of a DJ. It is much more than just beat-mixing. So much more.  

Properly programming music for a wedding dance floor and a diversified audience is both an art and a science. It requires music programming based on deeper wedding industry knowledge and the psychology of human behavior and response. This, when combined with a deeper understanding of the music, types and genres, programming mix, sequencing, insider’s secrets, and true audience reading and understanding leads us to develop the ideal programming of music created especially for today’s wedding market and audience expectations.

This is really a thing of beauty when experienced live and creates the perfect party celebration for everyone of all ages in attendance. You will receive tremendous rave reviews, return bookings, and clients for life once you have learned and masters this dynamic music programming what is unavailable anywhere else. It is a true game-changer!

This was fully created by us as one of the early pioneers of the mobile DJ and wedding DJ industries. We have trained a select number of DJs to this system, only recently has this now been made available to others in the DJ industry or those starting a new DJ business operation.

The Disc Jockey is one of the most important and crucial elements to the success and memories of a wedding celebration. These are celebrations of a lifetime and you, as the DJ, have been selected to lead and assure the success of this celebration. You do not want to leave the music programming to chance - or personal beliefs, theories, and uninformed, uneducated opinions. As a DJ you are a trusted specialist, an authority. Having the proper professional music programming is the sole key to your success and the success of the events and celebration of which you perform. We show you not only how to properly program the music for top wedding celebrations but to create a “DJ Show” - a full DJ performance from start to finish that is much more than just playing good music - it is an full entertaining “show” with Manu crucial components - something missing form the majority of DJ performances. Rise to be the top wedding DJ professional in your market with our specialized training.
