What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?
My pricing is based on the size of the event and the equipment needed for the event. Over 2 hours, it will be a flat cost. Less than 2 hours will be $100/hour (non-negotiable) Small house party(less than 50) - $250 Medium size party(50-200) - $500 Large party (greater than 200) - $1000 Note - All flat prices are negotiable. Also, there is a 10% referral commission for the client if subsequent parties are booked as a result of the event.
What is your typical process for working with a new customer?
The typical process would be as follows: 1) Discuss with the client about the type of event, size of the crowd expected, venue, date and special requests. 2) Based on the information given at flat rate will be charged and agreed. Usually, full payment C.O.D. expected on arrival on the day of event. 3) Occassional feedback is expected during performance to ensure client satisfaction.

What questions should customers think through before talking to professionals about their project?

Look for the best price, someone that has vast experience, someone that enjoys deejaying and goes the extra mile to please the client, someone who is on time. I pride myself on providing all of the above, professional on-time services and guarantee a great time.
Describe a recent project you are fond of. How long did it take?
I really enjoyed the album launching because it involved interacting with live bands and performances which was lots of fun. It was about 4 hours. There was also a live performance on streaming radio that was also fun. Also, another memorable moment was the book launching of the Twilight novel with author Stephanie Meyers. At least 1000 people were in attendance. A truly unforgettable moment.
