Free Kindle E-Book On Creating A WordPress Powered Website
One of our great benefits of membership is that we can provide our members with the online storage space for a website - often called web hosting. We often get DJs interested in starting a new website who don't know where to start.
How To Create A Website Using Wordpress: The Beginner's Blueprint for Building a Professional Website in 3 Easy Steps (Plus 40+ Premium Wordpress Video Tutorials) [Kindle Edition]  So, for those of you who want to dip your toe into the water of creating a website, one of the popular site building tools is called Wordpress and when our members apply for their hosting, we give them the option for us to install the basic Wordpress installation for you. That'll save you some time and get you on the road to providing the vital content for your website to get noticed by potential customers and search engines.
  The National Association of Disc Jockeys (NADJ) can't build your website for you, but we can give you the storage space and help with the initial preparations. We also offer guidance on making sure you have a backup copy of your website and can point you in the direction of online resources to help you.

The National Association of Disc Jockeys (NADJ) At BPM 2014
The National Association of Disc Jockeys At BPM 2014 - Stand D85
The excitement is building for the key representatives of the National Association of Disc Jockeys (NADJ) who are attending BPM 2014 at the NEC in Birmingham this weekend. The volunteers are giving up work (including income), their time with their family and opportunities to administer their DJ business, to represent the Association at industry events that our members believe we should attend.
  All of the prep work is in place and now the clock is ticking down for Alan Marshall, Fabio Capozzi and Brian Jones who are the three elected National Committee members, who are manning the stand for the full three days of the event.
  We've got assistance from our members who have come forward to help the team out on each day of the show. We also have Steven Honeyball who has been a great help on the run up to exhibition and will be a key support team member at the event. He earned his stripes at the NADJ AGM & Conference in April and it's good to have him on-board.

DJ Dynamics From Mastermix

We mentioned in a recent NADJ Newsletter that 'Education is not a dirty word' as some DJs take learning opportunities as an attack on their abilities to carry out their job.  It's not about picking holes in the skills of DJs, education is more about developing your knowledge and abilities.  This is something that the National Association of Disc Jockeys has encouraged and now we have one of the leading 'DJ Only' music providers helping to show that learning new skills is vital to the role of the DJ.

DJ Dynamics From Mastermix

  Mastermix have just announced the formation of DJ Dynamics and they've set up a Facebook Page which aims to be an online resource for anyone to learn DJ mixing techniques.  They've joined forces with the University of West London to bring DJs a series of courses to assist DJs to hone their skills.

  Here's what they had to say about the new resource: "DJ Dynamics is a unique resource for anyone keen to learn the techniques and processes that underpin DJ mixing, delivered in HD video content, interactive quizzes and a virtual DJ mixer via the DJ Dynamics online platform.

NADJ London Branch Meeting Time Lapse Video
 
An awful lot of effort goes into the meetings throughout our branch network and the team at NADJ London did a time lapse video of what most DJs don't see - the setting up and pack down.  Their meeting took place on Monday 28th July 2014 at Dukes Meadows Golf & Tennis Club in Chiswick (their regular meeting venue).
  The footage also takes a snapshot of the meeting, including the auction of products that went for absolutely unbelievable prices from Clive Hodghton from CRS1 Entertainment House, who was the supporting retailer for that meeting.
  The attendance was down due to massive problems with the transport network in our capital city - with reports of some drivers being stuck on the M25 from the morning through to the evening.  Yes, London may have more spent on their transport network than anywhere else in the country, but when a couple of incidents clog things up, only time can heal the problems.
  Our thanks to Tony Winyard, NADJ London Chairman, for setting up the camera and for creating the time lapse video of their branch meeting.
 
Importing Sound And Lighting Products From Outside Of The European Union (EU)
Importing Sound And Lighting Products From Outside Of The European Union
We're in probably the hardest and longest recession on record and we are all trying to save money, however, there are times when saving a few pounds could come back to haunt you.  One of our members contacted us to pass on some words of advice to DJs thinking about importing sound and lighting products from outside of the European Union (EU). 

  Not everyone will know the pitfalls of responding to one of the many spam e-mails from companies offering products that seem to be a bargain.  Many people will think that they can cut out the middleman and buy direct from a supplier or manufacturer in another country (outside of the EU).  Their prices look incredibly appealing and the urge to save money may override any concerns about warranties, spares, repairs, technical support or duties for importing products.

  The DJ who contacted us was lured by the low prices of some LED lighting products direct from a supplier in China.  He's been in the game for a long time and has always supported his local retailer, but the potential savings was the main reason for replying to an unsolicited e-mail and for placing a small order.  He now regrets that decision because when the items were delivered by the courier, he received an invoice from them a month later for import duty and processing charges.
