Are you in the process of planning a wedding, a graduation party, or another special event? If so, you may be in need of a DJ. There are many ways to find these music professionals, including your local phone book. However, there is another option. That option is Craigslist.org.
Craigslist is an online classified website and service. Many DJs are now using the service to advertise their business because it is free to do so. It costs money to list a business in the yellow pages of a phone book or in a local newspaper. This classified website allows professional music professionals to advertise their business without spending a dime. This is good, but it may mean lots of results. After performing a search, you could have 20 or more DJs to choose from. How can you make the right choice?
Before focusing on how you can choose DJ for your special event, know how to find them on Craigslist.org. To get started, visit the website. Select your state and city. Use the search box to the left and side of the page. Change the search settings to “services,” and search with relevant phrases. These include music or DJ. If you want to expand your search past your local area, download a free Craigslist search tool to search multiple locations at once and with ease.
After performing a search, whether you use a search tool or not, you will get a list of results. Read all listings carefully. You want to be on the lookout for good deals and experience. Don’t be a DJ’s first gig, as there is a risk they will make many costly and embarrassing mistakes. If you like the rates and the experience, you can make contact for more information. You can usually do this by phone or email.
One big question you want to ask a DJ is about the music they play. You may be surprised to hear that many DJs don’t allow their clients to handpick their music. You don’t want this. If you are getting married, you want to handpick your wedding songs. Before agreeing to use the services of a music professional, ensure you have some control. Not only do you hire their services, but you want to work side-by-side to ensure your special event is perfect. Bypass all music professionals who don’t give you this option.
