GoTeam Manifest All Your Dreams!
Ok, Whatever method of operation you prefer, I really hope you took good Notes if you attended the 10th Annual Southern Entertainment Conference this Weekend in Nashville , Tennessee. The SEA Conference was at the host hotel, Embassy Suites Airport, on March 23. Festivities continue Tonight starting at 4pm at Marathon Music Works with the SEA AWARDS Ceremony.
I want to share with you about all the entertainers who were in the House and the DJ's (MY Gurl DJ KOUTURE showed out!) but thats left unsaid! It was serious!
But I have to get down to the Important Notes which I took from The Conference Panelists. When I staggered into the room these Industry Greats were answering and informing:
Now keep in mind This was a completely open panel
Any Questions involving the industry were open for Discussion and Guess what , They pulled no Shorts in Answering them. Now I want to try my best to share some of my Notes
Lets start with India Graves: I Worship Her!
Vice President, Marketing and Promotions at Mizay Entertainment
India touched on Proper Presentation of your Brand.
1. If you are searching for Management and Representation , Have yourself ready. As she stated, " What do you have to manage?"
2. Be professional in your presentation, and know your goals.
3. If your Local Market isn't working for you, CHANGE YOUR VENUE..MOVE AROUND , TRY OTHER CITIES! Simple Right!
Now lets talk about DJ LOMAXX! THE MAN! and DRUMMA BOY!
This Team came out of the boxx with Real Facts for Real Go-Getters!
Touching on Self Marketing, Management Search, Image Branding, and the biggie SPONSORSHIP!
IF YOU ARE NOT READY TO MAKE MONEY YOU WILL NOT MAKE MONEY!
1. GET AN ATTOURNEY
2. DO not PAY FOR MANAGEMENT (it is a commission based position)
I like this "Your Manager should get less sleep than you do!"
3.When seeking sponsorship, be prepared to let the prospective Brands know exactly what you have to offer
4. Stay associated with your Market and the Brands market (it has to be a good fit)
5. Know the different types of sponsorship, think local, float, and direct product placement.
AND THE STATEMENT OF THE DAY GOES TO...(DRUM ROLL)
"WHATEVER YOU BRING TO THE TABLE, KEEP IT 100!"
So GoTeamers, In Conclusion, I wish I had a tape recorder, 2 Ipads, and a Laptop to really catch all this STREET KNOWLEDGE the Panelists laid out for US. Definately if you have an opportunity to attend the Next SEA Conference, make it a Priority, If you really want Success! Be Involved!
oh and by the way,
It was really an experience the information shared by all the panelists will be applied to Off Bently, In Da Cul De Sac Ova Herr! because We Are Southern Entertainment Reality Personalities and always searching for hot tracks for Our New Show, GoTeam Radio, Product Placement, Sponsorship (black crown where you at?) ADVERTISE HERE 1-516-468-3268 I'm just saying, I know, Right?
