For the last several years at DJX, digital-marketing maven Jordan St. Jacques of Canada’s Digitera has shared some of his very valuable secrets to DJs looking to up their game – and, since then, seminar attendees have reached new levels for their businesses. This year, he’s back, but with a slightly new approach.
At DJX ’22, St. Jacques will again reveal his digital-marketing solutions, but this time they’ll be aimed at specific sectors of the market. So, if you’re a mobile DJ looking to book more business, but with a more targeted approach, we have a group of career-enriching sessions just for you.
DJX will present four seminars from St. Jacques – one each day of the show – and he’ll get a little help from his friends and fellow thought leaders like Ross Akselrad of Philly’s Pulse Entertainment, Ken Cosco of Boston’s A Touch of Class DJs and Derek Panell of Rhode Island’s New England Proms. From booking mitzvahs to getting on preferred-vendor lists, from scoring school parties to promoting teen-club nights, St. Jacques and company will offer the very latest solutions to solve these markets.
Join us for these exclusive sessions at DJX ’22:
