I can’t believe how quickly things seem to happen!!
I’ve been working on my first event…well, it’s a series of events for one customer. I’m putting together a summer series of concerts for a local business. The music will be every Saturday night. It’s been a little tough going. The client is just starting out, so she doesn’t have a lot of cash to pay bands. The bands that are willing to talk with me for the amount I am allowed to pay them are incredibly slow getting back to me.
I’ve got the first two weeks set up. Then, I’ve got one empty Saturday in July, one in August, and then all of September to fill up. I’ve got to get some straggler bands to pick up their phones and fill out the remaining dates.
I am excited for what is set up, though. I’ve got about eight bands ready to go. Once I get everything set up, it’ll be time to Rock ‘n Roll!!
Today, I started the next step. I sent out emails, facebook notifications, and a twitter announcement telling everyone I know what my new business is. The launch announcement has been sent. Now, I am going to continue to work my tail off to get the business rolling.
I’m already working on an event! I decided that creating a contract is the best thing to do in order to protect myself and my customers so everyone knows exactly what I am going to be responsible for doing. It’s going to be a simple write-up describing what I understand the customer’s need to be and what I am going to deliver based on that need.
I am waiting for the business cards I designed to get here. I created one using one of the many photographs from Melissa Harper Photography. If you are looking for a photographer, I highly recommend her: http://melissaharperphotography.yolasite.com/
More to come!
