Do-It-Yourself DJ Events
If you're thinking of cutting back on your event entertainment budget, I can sum it all up in one word...
I'm not just saying this because I want you to hire me...umm....well, ok...maybe I am. But seriously, the 'self-help' DJ approach is something to avoid...whether you hire me or not.
Take the following into consideration.
None of these figures include addressing any activities/announcements/problems during the event, or the miscellaneous cords, cables, do-dad's needed, or the general hassle and stress of all this ON TOP OF everything else you're doing! And at the current minimum wage rate, add an additional $150+ on top (your time is valuable!).
Your 'cheap' do-it-yourself event is now at LEAST $1,200.00 and will take at LEAST 15+ ADDITIONAL hours of your time.
Even if you have some of these items already, or 'connections' with willing friends, it doesn't drop by much. And that's if EVERYTHING goes as planned with no problems. Yeah...right!
Now let's look at the costs involved with the other approach. Hiring a qualified DJ service. I can also sum that up in one word...
A typical basic 4-hr event can cost in the neighborhood of $500-$600. With no worry or hassle involved with locating and picking up the equipment, setting it up, running all of it, insurance, and so on. PLUS, you get a trained professional to take care of any activities and announcements PLUS more than 100 songs. Not to mention that this person will have back-up solutions in place, and the skill and expertise to overcome nearly any and all unplanned eventualities. (Meteor strikes not included)
So how does that Do-It-Yourself idea sound now?
