    Nightclub Closing Auction

    The place we're talking about is basically at the intersection of Connecticut and 18th. Right in the heart of the DuPont nightlife area. DuPont used to really have a massive nightlife scene. But it appears to me that people are moving away to other parts of the city. I haven't worked in that...

    Nightclub Closing Auction

    Unfortunately I don't. I know some DJs who have worked there. They might know ownership personally.

    Nightclub Closing Auction

    Yeah, I specifically meant a business liquidation auction. I have used Ebay.

    Nightclub Closing Auction

    The announcement was certainly sudden. And most DC nightclubs have been closed since March. So yeah, I think they were still stocked as if it was 100% operational.

    Nightclub Closing Auction

    Super bummed that one of DC's iconic nightlife spots is closing. But they are auctioning off all of their equipment, including sound and light. I've never bought anything from an auction site like this, but it's interesting to see...

    Prom playlist?

    Were your speakers positioned in that corner with you? If there was a rain threat, that makes sense. But spreading that sound out would have probably given a much wider coverage with that same rig. But school dances definitely like lots of bass.

    Prom playlist?

    The tough thing with proms right now is that some schools are going viral on a single Soundcloud rapper that doesn't ever chart anywhere else. Or maybe it's not Soundcloud anymore, it's TikTok or Twitch. It's hard to keep up even if you're reading charts. I think Spotify is becoming more...

    Weddingwire, talk me down

    I'm with you 100% but I think the demographic of users here is also affecting that. Our frequent group of posters tends to be DJs that are established and have great referral networks. And if you can be busy without paying for the lead gen, I think we would all prefer that. But I used TK and WW...

    As with most things, it's probably a "Yes, and..." rather than an either or. If he can tweak his page to rank better, he should do that. That alone may not be enough to drive the traffic he needs.

    Weddingwire, talk me down

    Most people know how to identify an ad versus a search result on Google. I still don't think many people are spending a lot of time on page 2 and beyond. And outranking WeddingWire is going to be exceptionally difficult. Not impossible, but SEO is just not as easy as posting blogs with a few...

    Weddingwire, talk me down

    My experience with WeddingWire is that it's worth it to pay for at a minimum first page placement. Think about how often you get to the 2nd page of Google results... most of us it's never. Depending on how crowded your market is, that might be a tier 3. But I'd pay for any upgrade to ensure...

    My response to that is always "If I just wanted to break even, I could spend no money, earn no money, and we can call it a day right now."

    Weddingwire, talk me down

    Right, so if you're worried about the top of the funnel, it's just a matter of channel. If you're going to invest $270 per month, where is it the most effective? You could allocate across Google/Facebook/Instagram yourself. Or you can give that money to WeddingWire and let them drive traffic to...

    Weddingwire, talk me down

    I'm not going to tell you what to do... but I believe different vendors need to find different ways to market. A venue is often the first thing booked. They are in a position to make all sorts of other referrals. That's why for my business, getting on their list is more important than being on...

    My First Streamed Gig!

    How are you routing that signal back to your computer though? I'm taking the S9's 3rd output which is a record/mix out directly. I'm not processing that again except on the computer. I'd need another interface for the computer to add it back separately.

    My First Streamed Gig!

    I tested the OBS and SpinStream combo today. It's overloading the crap out of my computer... I wish I had another fast laptop for this. Audio was too quiet in the beginning, and then I increased it in OBS. But it's still not very loud... I'm not sure where else I can boost it since it's taking...

    My First Streamed Gig!

    That makes sense how you're doing it. I never made the leap on that Bose, and my Yamaha external mixer doesn't have a USB out. I haven't posted anything publicly since that YouTube video I put up. But I'm hoping to do some more. Honestly, I thought I would have more excitement for working on...

    My First Streamed Gig!

    So this was interesting... Playing a virtual set from my controller worked really well. But when I tried to do something similar on my S9 the stream was picking up the control tone from the record. I had spent a little time working on it, but sort of gave up. Apparently I wasn't the only one...

    Look like it's time to get a new laptop.

    I mean... I didn't think he was going to take the suggestion and actually do it. He doesn't take any other suggestions. But the main things I'd be looking for are lots of memory, and as big of an SSD drive as he can afford.

    I bought 2 scrims.

    Lol, he definitely meant to buy black ones.

    Always remember... Even if you get a good deal on something... you didn't save money, you spent it.
