They say if you find a job that you love, you’ll never work a day in your life. We take that to heart at Diamond Sonic. Each of us values the time we spend with clients, and most of all, on the job at events. We have a passion for music and helping a plan come together.
These qualities serve us well and we hope they help you also. In an effort to give you a better understanding of what we do, here’s a day in the life of a corporate event DJ.
Task #1 As a Corporate Event DJ: Intake
We spend a lot of time talking with potential clients and answering queries that come into the website. When you request a quote or reach out to us, we have some follow up to do.
The more information you can give us, the better. From this, we put together a quote, check our calendar to make sure we’re available, and reach out to you to keep the conversation going.
Task #2 As a Corporate Event DJ: Preparing The Quote
If you let us know your budget when you first reach out, we’ll try to meet you where you are. However, if our number is higher than you can accommodate, it’s always smart to tell us! We may be able to suggest a different approach or lighten our proposal to get you the essentials at a cost you can afford.
We talked about budgeting in a recent article and recommend that to anyone searching for a corporate event DJ.
Task #3 As a Corporate Event DJ: Equipment Maintenance
Some days, we have to go over our equipment and perform regular maintenance. This keeps it in top condition. Because we do this regularly, it cuts down on last-minute problems. We know you don’t want last-minute problems at your event and neither do we!
Task #4 As a Corporate Event DJ: Education
We also stay up to date on the latest tech news in our field as well as advancements that help us elevate your event. This way, we can improve our services and help innovate for you. Maybe we can suggest something fun you haven’t thought of!
We think that’s part of our job as entertainment professionals.
Task #5 As a Corporate Event DJ: Preparing Playlists
Part of that education factor is being immersed in the music itself. We try to always know what the hottest tracks are and keep in mind what goes over best at which types of events.
With that in mind, we can prepare meaningful playlists that are tailored to your event. This helps everyone have a good time and makes your event music a supporting environmental factor and not just background noise.
Task #6 As a Corporate Event DJ: On The Job
If we’re lucky, we get to go out and play some music! We show up early for set up and a soundcheck. This ensures that everything is ready to go when you are.
Sometimes we’re handling lights, photography, and videography as well as your music. If so, we coordinate all the techs on site so everyone is on the same page.
Hopefully, we get a few minutes with you to go over the game plan again and adjust to any last-minute changes. Keeping those to a minimum really helps!
Task #7 As a Corporate Event DJ: Follow Up
We love to talk with clients after the event to see how we did and if we can offer any services after the fact. If you booked us for an annual event, this is a great time to let us know the next date so we can pencil it in for you.
