Resources for MC’s!
My books shelves are groaning under the weight of what I believe is every Master of Ceremony book, Emcee Training Course and DVD ever published on the Art of being an MC. I’ve spent countless hours reading and a considerable sum of money collecting them, not only to help my career but also to help assemble these lists that I can recommend to you. These are what I consider The Essentials.
We cover both the essential skills of being an MC in many different areas AND the Business side of things. This means if you only want to improve your skills and perform your role better OR you want to start building a career as an Emcee, we have you covered.
The Resource Sections are …
- The MC’s Office – Our Recommended Mail List, CRM, Web Host, Theme
- Wedding MC Resources
- Corporate MC Resources
- Create & Grow your own Online Business
- Memory Skills – our own Online Training Course
- Work Smarter not Harder – our guide to Productivity and Motivation
These resources will cut years off your learning curve, fast track your progress and help you avoid the numerous mistakes that beginners often make.
Note – some of the sections have grown so large they now have their own page!

The MC’s Office – Essential Business Tools for working MC’s
Keeping in touch with my regular and prospective clients is absolutely vital to sustaining and building my business.
Constant Contact is the acknowledged leader in the field. Very easy to use, with great support and training. Yes, it does have a monthly cost, but if it helps you get extra assignments, it’s well worth it. Look out for an upcoming article from me with some hints and tips. They usually have a free trial on offer, so click the banner below and check it out.
If you would also like to read a full article on WHY & HOW I use Email Marketing, including a list of the exact things I put in a Client Newsletter read this article Email Marketing Tips.
Your clients need to be able to find you, read about you and see some footage. I’ve tried most of the big name Hosting companies over the years – GoDaddy, BlueHost, HostGator etc. My current favourite without a doubt is SiteGround.
Faster, more secure and they have great Customer Support. Any issues setting up a site or running the day to day operation, they are there to help. Plus they have a great backup system. All that and about the same price as the others. Plus they help you move an existing site over to them!
Thrive Leads & Themes
I’ve just started using these on a couple of my sites and I’m really impressed. So are my readers. The do subscription boxes, themes, landing pages and more. If you use WordPress, you need to check this lot out. Click the Image. They also come out with new features every month, with great training. And Yes, they integrate easily with Constant Contact
Another must have. I keep my current Office & Project Files here. A great backup and way to share larger files with others. Dropbox details
Some people use Dropbox to deliver important files and proposals to their clients when they are out on the road.
I don’t know what I’d do without this. But sharing notes, reminders and clipped webpages between Desktop, Phone and Ipad, it is a lifesaver. I also know I don’t use it to it’s fullest potential, but I love finding people who have never heard of it and watching their faces light up when they see just some of the things it can do.
