The last time properly djing was back in the 90s. Bought the P4 spring 2020 & have since bought the whole set up for a mobile dj - including a sign written van
Website done & SM pages. Have Sumup, Quickbooks & online booking on website - & fully insured. Cut a long story short, I’m good to go & have done a few livestreams on Mixcloud under the lockdown period.
Had my 1st booking Sept 24th. I’ve dropped business cards to local pubs & spoken to some of the landlords etc & whilst I have a 40th birthday booked in March 2022 (!!), I don’t have anything else. Had a New Year’s Eve enquiry via My Google Business profile but no confirmed booking as yet.
- What do you do to try & get bookings?
- Average prices you charge? I generally start at £200 for private parties (individuals) & £250 for pubs. 4 hrs. Extra fee for additional hrs.
- Despite website being fully SEO optimised, I find Google not really fit for purpose nowadays. Ads, sponsored ads & then agency after agency. Things like Bark & Last Minute Musicians etc… before individual websites even get close. Are you registered with a company like Bark?
Any tips & tricks appreciated. Note: I don’t do weddings. I do this because I enjoy it & the money is a bonus. My style is house & techno but I have recently added some cheese to my library because I discovered that youngsters are still liking ABBA, Madness, Cyndi Lauper & Village People () & so I thought it best to have this stuff in my collection to promote myself as mainstream/party classics etc too.
