What is more, we could teach involvement dances, and host contests and games. Can we warrant a premium fee? You bet we do. Just remember to always be worth your requesting charge, and always give your customers even more than you’ve promised.
1. Set your Principal fee –
You need to get a set base fee on which to operate so you’ve got a good beginning point for all occasions.
$100-$300 is the average hourly rate in the industry. Check out the competition on your market and choose what you think is a great starting point to your level of service.
2. Determine all the “extras”
The purchase price of your ceremony should change depending on the type of occasion, the time of year, the location of the event, whether it is a day or nighttime event.
In addition, you may add items to your own service that provide that extra level of service like lighting effects, dancers, party props, Karaoke, etc.. . Each of these must possess a set fee so it’s easy to ascertain the total once you add it to your principal fee.
3.It’s very sensible to base your costs on a three-hour minimum. Even if the occasion is only an hour, you still have to set up and break down.
Occasions such as weddings, Bar Mitzvahs and some corporate events are typically booked at a higher rate than other types of events. You will have dual responsibility of being both DJ and EMCEE in Singapore, and should be compensated.
5. Establish any discounts
Occasionally a fantastic incentive for people to hire your DJ service is to provide them a discount. Assemble this thought into your pricing structure and think about offering discounts to charitable organizations, customers keen to prepay and company clients who reserve your services many times a year.
6. Establish overtime rates
Clients will often request that you extend your services beyond the original end time. Ensure you have a speed set so you are able to offer to do so quickly. Typically you would charge 50% of the hourly rate you’ve quoted for every half an hour of overtime you perform.
