- What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?
Basically I break down my fee as follows: $75 for the first hour. This includes setup, cleanup, travel cost and materials. I charge a little more for airbrush jobs and glitter tattoos for larger events to offset supply costs. $50 for every hour thereafter $25 for an extra half hour. My fee is always negotiable...especially for non-profit organizations. NOTE: Due to COVID-19 I need to charge an additional $25 on top of my regular fee. This is due to the need for additional supplies. I change gloves for every child and sanitize my paint and equipment between children. This additional fee is used for gloves and alcohol since I can easily go through a box of gloves and a bottle of alcohol for a single party. I did not want this virus to affect my pricing but it is an unfortunate necessity to ensure the safety and health of my clients, employees and myself. Thank you.
- What is your typical process for working with a new customer?
When I am approached by a new client, either through my website or Thumbtack, I try to get a feel for what kind of event they are having. Once I know if it is a party, festival, corporate event, charity event then I ask how many cheeks are they expecting and what is the theme. If they decide to hire me, I double check all the pertinent details for the event, time, location, date, etc. If there is a theme I run some design ideas if they would like. I explain how I calculate my fees and mention that my fee is negotiable. I check in with the client one week before the event and then the day before. I receive payment at the end of the event and I leave a package containing makeup wipes, a few business cards, and invoice and a thank you letter.
- What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?
I attend workshops at Haunters Conventions and tutorials on YouTube as often as I can and as expenses allow. I am currently enrolled at the Stan Winston School for the Character Arts. They are amazing and I have learned so much so far! But...practice, practice practice is the best way to hone my skills.
