When you book a DJ for your wedding or event, get some references and always read the wedding DJ reviews
When you get married and choose a DJ read the wedding DJs Melbourne reviews before you make a decision. The internet is fantastic in that way. Everything can be reviewed along and you can get a real sense of what kind of service is offered from the reviews. This does not mean that all reviews are always fair and right; sometimes people post horrible reviews when they shouldn’t have, out of their own emotional dramatic reasons, but mostly, when there are many reviews, you get a good understanding of what is real and what is not.
Importance of reviews
You too should be reviewing services as it really helps the service supplier get their name out there. A good DJ for hire in Australia needs those reviews as much as you need a DJ service. It’s a good deed to leave a review for a person, online and there are many platforms to do this including Google reviews and places like Yelp or Trip Advisor. Leaving reviews often means the person will get new business because of your review (if it was a good one) and this means decent word-of-mouth business for that person.
After the review
Once you have read the review you can then get hold of the DJ because presumably their information is online! And if a DJ is reading this and does not have their information readily online, make sure you do now! Get hold of the DJ and chat to them about your needs. See the phone call a bit like an interview. Ask the DJ as many questions as you would like and make sure you get the answers that you want to hear. Then, if you are both happy, make a booking.
A DJ will generally ask for a deposit for a booking. Each DJ works different but this would be the norm. Deposits would be refundable up to a certain point in time and this is also generally fair. It ensures that the DJ is safe with the booking with you, you are not going to let them down at the last minute, and it ensures that you are safe with the DJ, that he is not going to let you down at the last minute.
Before the event or before the wedding, meet and chat with the DJ. You can go over all the finer details of your event, the amount of people you are having, and what you expect from the music. You can discuss the types of music they will play and the times that they will play, from the start to the end. You will let the DJ know if you will need any announcements done and of course the DJ must be flexible in every way. And of course keep the conversation open with the DJ up until the time of the actual wedding or event, as things always come up. When planning events, there are always surprises. Your DJ should be ready and wedding DJs Melbourne reviews will tell you how professional your DJ is.
