- What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?
Birthday Party industry typically charges $200 and up. Performers that charge less might not have very much experience or quality costumes. At first glance it may seem allot but on my side it usually takes me 8 hours of work cleaning costumes, preparing activities, buying supplies, loading the truck and scheduling the performer. on the day of the event the performer takes an hour to get ready + drive time, and hour or more performance time for the party and an hour of loading, getting out of costume and dropping off equipment. ( Our company invests $1000+ or more acreate each dress and/or puppet show. Everything is hand made and cannot be found anywhere else!) So please know your budget and realistic expectations or an idea of what you want. No matter the price, the important thing is to remember the memories will last a life time and that is priceless. There are plenty of options to fit your budget if you have time to plan for it.
- What is your typical process for working with a new customer?
First we get the date, time and address of the event, then we see what type of entertainment is desired. After that we go over prices and collect a small deposit. Next step is we check in a few days before the event and make sure everything is correct. after the performance is done we collect final payment.
- What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?
Yes. We are always attending conventions and classes in our feild as well as training others.
