Being a DJ is a very rewarding job. Not only do you get to ensure people are having a great time at their event, but it's also a fantastic creative outlet and money maker. But as you get gigs as a DJ, it can be difficult to figure out how much you should charge for your DJ services. Here are some tips that should help answer your questions.
Depending on where you are gigging, you will want to charge accordingly. Different areas have different costs of living, which should affect how much you charge them for your services. For example, if you are gigging in L.A., you could charge a little higher in those areas compared to how much you should charge in a rural area.
With that in mind, you should still try to keep your prices reasonable. Even if you have thousands of dollars invested into your equipment, you can still charge a reasonable fee, such as $25 an hour. This will help establish a better relationship with them, increasing the chance of them hiring you in the future.
Keeping these tips in mind will help your DJ services continue to grow. Check out the video on this page for more information..
