I am not a booking agent in the traditional sense. I am upfront and honest about the costs and fees for booking acts. I won't get into a situation where the client has multiple agents, attempting to get them the same act.
That does not serve anyone, least of all the client.
Anyone can book any act anytime. Until you upscale to massive acts that tour arenas throughout the world. The truth is you could do it yourself if you had the right phone number and contacts. It once wasn't like that but now the industry has shifted to that.
The main point of booking the likes of bands, international DJs and Celebrity appearances is that a client is better off using a booking agent to do all the stressful work for them. This would speed up the process of booking your favoured act before the event date.
How I Do Act Booking
I as a Booking agent will take all of the drama, stress and hassle out of the process for you, the client. Believe me, when I say this there can be plenty of drama between both parties with managers and the sorts.
When you contact me wanting to book an act, I will get all the important information from you. I know exactly what they will want to know and I will get them on the phone quicker that you will, usually.They will know me and they'll understand that I am not a time waster. They would get an awful lot of that, trust me.
I'll be direct with you on the costs. You will know what money I make in the deal, I won't hide any fees on top of the charge.
I will always push for a good deal and a great service for you the client. I would do the exact same for when I book acts for my own gigs.
