on and how to explain who we are and what we do in a confident, upbeat and
positive way. Be sure to have a information sheet by all phones and located
by the DJing area. Remind your staff daily about using the sheets and how
important it is for them to hype the event. This is the single most effective

Reiterate to employees the importance
of presenting the event/band in an enticing way. Cover all your bases:
--Security at the front door...the people taking the money. They alone

able to answer that in a believable way...
--Anybody Answering The Phone
People are last minute planners, expect a large amount of phone calls the
day of the event. Reinforce the use of the fact sheet and require the proper,
enticing presentation of the information.
