In the spirit of election season being in Full-Swing, we thought we'd write a little post about the power of CHOICE!
For most of the clients we speak with, getting to meet the DJ that will actually be managing their event is critically important. Of all the vendors a wedding couple will have to hire, there is not another one where the "personality match" is more important than the DJ. I mean, this is the vendor that a wedding couple will be putting out in front of their friends and family (with a microphone no less)...there has to be trust from the wedding couple that this is EXACTLY. THE. RIGHT. PERSON.
Most quality DJ companies will have a roster of several DJs. But from that roster, how many DJs will a wedding client actually get to meet before they make a hiring decision? From clients we've spoken with, that number is usually none or one. So, right off the bat, our advice is to cross any DJ company off your list if you won't meet the actual DJ before the event. That is waaaay too scary of a prospect.
But what about a DJ company, with a roster of multiple DJs, that "pre-selects" a DJ for you to meet with? How will you know that this is the right DJ for you? I mean, you may like them "well enough", but how do you know that the company doesn't have another DJ that would be a better personality match? Think about it, how did this one DJ you are meeting with get selected for you? Were they just the "next DJ available" by some hierarchy they decided on? Are you just getting a DJ with more-limited experience because they are the last one available? Maybe there is a DJ on their roster whose musical tastes fit yours like a glove, but you never ever got a chance to meet them.
At Encore, we want to give our clients the power of CHOICE! When you meet with us the first time, we will register you for one of our Open Houses or better yet, one of our VIP Parties. At these events, you will hear all of our DJs play. You will get a chance to have conversation with them and test out your personality match. You will take notes on your favorites (you will probably have a few!) and get to let us know your preferences. Then we will make a match based on YOUR choices. Like speed dating, except way less creepy and sad. After the match is made, you will meet with the DJ you picked for a Planning Workshop; building a relationship with your DJ that will last throughout the planning process. THAT is the power of choice,
Bottom line...don't let a DJ company tell YOU which one of their DJs is the best fit for you. You chose.
ENCORE, It's all about YOU!
