The Classic DJ Upsell: "What's Up With That?"
Boston and RI wedding DJ discuss the tactics that some dj's are using to sell to their clients. Many DJ's come off as used car salesmen in their sales approach leaving potential clients with a huge invoice and a bitter taste in their mouth.
Many couples are walking into a wedding vendor consultation and treated like they were buying a value meal at McDonald's. There seems to be the theme of "Supersize all Brides and squeeze every nickel out of them". Let's start with the infamous classic base package which includes "not much". For DJ's, it might include a speaker system, music, and if you're lucky, the DJ might throw in a microphone for free...lol.
Then there is the slightly better package-let's call this package B. This package is a just little better. It might boast of a second professional DJ who is most likely someone's cousin, girlfriend, or brother-in-law. Maybe a second sound system consisting of an ipod and grandma's speaker.
Moving right a long, there exists package C. This package may include lights, a subwoofer, or a video montage. Maybe, some basic uplighting or nicer speakers that should have been included in package A. This package is considerably more expensive and I'm sure that whoever is in front of you selling will inform you that this is by far the most popular package-popular to their bank account.
Package D is the premier package and if you are a bride and groom with impeccable taste, this package and the package price is tailored for you. The price difference between package A and package D is equivalent to the cost of the engagement ring in most cases.
I think you get my point and if their is a package E or G, just run for the hills when you can. In my opinion, most DJ's are overpaid. There are not too many careers in which you eat steak or chicken on the job, play some tunes, make some announcements, and make Dr. or Lawyer money for the 5 or 6 hours that your there.
Ra-Mu and the Crew has committed 2009 and beyond to offering more and continuing to stay away from package X. We have one package and that is "package we want to be good and do a great job". Call or email if you're interested in not being upsold this wedding season.
