Questions - everyone has them. “How long have you been a …?”, “Can you recommend a …for my wedding?”, “What kind of music do you play?”, “What does it cost?” These are good questions – but when do you ask them? Are they the right ones? Why is it important? Every event – Fundraiser, Wedding, Corporate Party, teen event, private party – has its own unique elements. It’s important to know which ones you want or need and ask about them. You may also realize how much a potential vendor may help you in area’s you may not have considered. Let’s look at some important questions, when to ask them and why.
Now, let’s turn your attention to entertainment. You know someone searching for a wedding DJ. The only question she’s asking is: “How much do you charge for a 5 hour wedding on a Sat. in June?” The DJ answers by saying a “2495.00” to which she may respond with “Oh, thanks!” write down the price, hang up, cross that DJ off her list and move on. That bride has no idea what she’d be getting and the DJ didn’t try to clarify what her needs really are. Ideally, they would schedule a no-cost consultation to discuss her needs.
