So You Want To Be A DJ.
you are paid at the start of the party, they are less
likely to ask for some money back.
The bottom line is this: you still set aside a date,
loaded up, transported and set up all of your
equipment. You should be paid for that, even if a
sudden rain storm stopped the party early.
Bars and clubs however generally like to pay the DJ at
the end of the night. It's just tradition, and you aren't
likely to get paid up front. Many times the bar doesn't
have the cash on hand until the end of the night.
Private parties, on the other hand, should have the
cash ready since they should be expecting to pay you
at some point. It's okay to ask for the payment right
when you get started, after setting up, to ensure you
get your full pay.
One of the best tools you can use to market yourself is
the Internet. In the last few years, I have been hired
for more gigs via Facebook than any other medium. It
is vital that you maintain a Facebook page, a Twitter
account, and any other future trend to market your
services. As times change and new fads and trends
appear, make sure to keep up with the times and make
yourself available to any new medium.
