New Pictures
- - - -
I have added three new pictures to the Wedding Boucher located in the Gallery, under Make it Special. A fellow balloon twister Bob Rumba inspired this centerpiece, A Bride balloon figure, domed in a Just Married Balloon. Sometime last week Rumba had dinner at Jullianni¡¦s Pizza, restaurant that Roger Siegel
(http://www.mbd2.com/balloonjam111402/pages/DCP_0268.htm) and I work. Rumba made a snowman inside a clear 11¡¨ round balloons, with white confetti inside and gave it to the waitress. The waitress thought it was cool and showed it to everyone that works for the restaurant. When I arrived Friday, everyone wanted to know if I could do that too. Not having the right size clear balloon, I used a 160 for the snowman and 5¡¨ clear round for the dome. It took about five clear rounds before I was able to stuff the snowman into the round, but I did it! I promised the waitress that I would bring her a better centerpiece next week. This is what I came up with, a Bride figure in the Just Married Balloon. So once again, everyone thinks I am the best balloonist they have seen.

Being Creative with Your Balloons
- - - -
Last year (2002), our neighbor invited us over for the annual Halloween party. Being an entertainer, I am use to getting dressed up in different costumes, but trying to find a costume that is neat, funny, or just a cleaver idea is always a challenge. My wife Michelle went on the Internet to find some ideas. Two ideas we thought were cute was Chicken Cord-on-Blue and Darth Vader¡¦s wife Ellie. I dressed all in blue, wrapped an electric cord around my neck with a rubber chicken attached ¡V Wa la, Chicken Cord-on-Blue. Michelle needed a Darth Vader¡¦s mask and I remember seeing a picture of one created by Ralph Dewey. So with his basic design, I designed a Darth Vader¡¦s helmet for Michelle. She dressed up in black with a cape and an up and down arrows on her chest and held the helmet. She was Ellie Vader! Everyone at the party thought Ellie Vader was great and helmet was the neatest thing they have seen out of balloons-- and yes, I did pass out some business cards.

Auto Deletion
- - - -
I received an email from a fellow entertainer who was angered that he had not been removed them from the Update Notice List. The individual said that he has clicked on the remove URL every email that I sent to him. This prompted me to check the coding of the deletion program, and yes there was a problem. I have corrected this now. Therefore, in the future, if you click on the deletion link, you will be removed. If not, please send a nice email and I will make sure you are removed. To bad the Angry Entertainer will never know that the problem was fixed. :(

Conventions
- - - -
People are always emailing me asking if I am going to be at this convention or attend this balloon jam, and the answer is usually no. It is not that I would not like to attend every convention, but from a business point is not always the wises thing to do. Unlike many entertainers, I live by one of the biggest and best cities ¡V Chicago. There are a lot of people and companies that do activities all year round, and if you market yourself correctly, you can find work all year round. So taking time off to go convention may not always be the best financially.

Secondly, some conventions are run by other vendor companies, which would normally bypass inviting any company that would compete against it. This is normal in the business community.

Lastly, I have been told by show management, people who run the convention, because I have not attended there convention, written a book, and have not participated in the hottest chat rooms, nobody would be interested in taking a class from me. Which again is there view and they are paying the bill for the event.

So, for those people who are looking for me at conventions, you can rest your eyes. I will probably be working somewhere or enjoying the evening with my wife.

If you really want me to attend a convention, then bug show management. Ask them why they don¡¦t have Magical Balloon-dude Dale at the convention? They may not admit right a way they know how I am, but I can lay money on it, they all have seem this www.mbd2.com website.

Drunken Santa eaten by Flamingos
- - - -
Holiday humor - We received an inflatable Santa Claus decoration this year from my parents and two Pink Flamingos from Michelle¡¦s parents in Florida. When the Santa Claus would deflate it would look like he was passed out in front of the house, and with the Flamingos added, it looked like they were eating Santa. ƒ¼

Feel free to pass this link on to your friends.

Entertainers Tip 10 ¡V Thank You Cards
- - - -
Do you still get birthday cards from your insurance company? I do. Here is an industry that knows it is a service industry and does little things like send out birthday and Christmas cards. As entertainer¡¦s we need do a little extra to help retain customers or at least get referrals. I use a Thank you and reminder cards to help retain customers.

You can purchase Thank You Cards at your local convenience store, but they will not have the gimmick or personal touch that is required. I use my home computer to make my Thank You Cards. You can go to your local office supply store and pick up gloss postcards that can print on or us regular plan white Index Cards sold 100 in a pack.

For Thank You Cards I like the professional gloss look. Therefore, I spend the extra money and purchase gloss postcard stock. On the front of the card is a picture of me saying Thank You and on the back is a little blurb talking about me and thanking them for letting me attend there party.

Thank you card http://www.mbd2.com/Thanx-Cards.htm

The reminder cards are used twice in the year. Once around May, letting people know that my schedule is getting busy for summer and they should consider booking now before it is too late; and again in September reminding them to book there Christmas parties. This card is simple 4x6 Blank Index Card, which is sold 100 in pack. I use my color printer and print on one side a simple message and the other side is used for mailing.

Reminder Card - http://www.mbd2.com/Thanx-Cards-Reminder.htm

These two simple cards have helped keep and retain new clients. Try it. It is work getting everything setup, but now is the time to do it. January and February is the time to work on your PR and develop new marketing ideas. Plus, it only cost 23 cents to mail!

Boy, have things changed.
