As you search for the best DJ for your wedding that will go the distance in being the best fit for you as a couple, it's going to be blatantly obvious that you are going to run into a rather wide range in prices. Now I bet I know what you are saying. "Here comes Derek again with another long-winded post about The Wedding Coach DJ prices." Well, my answer to you would be "sort of". I'm always doing wedding DJ market research (95% of which is outside the Cleveland area), and when I see something that can spin the importance of finding the best wedding DJ another way, I'm happy to share that information with my prospective clients. Engagement season has passed here in Cleveland, but I still get pinged on throughout the year for bookings and oftentimes I get the question on why my prices are higher than other DJ companies here in Cleveland. The answer to that question is not simple, but to get us started, I will tell you that I like to think I give my clients "extra service and attention". That extra service and attention begins with the fact I am an "owner-operated" DJ service, which means you'll work with me from the time you submit a contact form on my website through the contract process, as well as music planning until the last song is played at your wedding reception.
For me, it's always been my aim to give my brides and grooms more of an "experience", rather than be like a lot of other DJs who just see your wedding as a "gig" and just set up and play music. Your wedding day down here in Cleveland is supposed to be the best day of your life, but you need to know that the quality wedding DJs (those who provide that extra level of service) are few and far between. The true professional wedding DJs here in Cleveland will stop at nothing to do what it takes to find you and give you the best experience possible. In an earlier post, I spoke about the importance of making sure you find the best wedding DJ for you as a couple, and then pull out your checkbook or credit card. When you let "price" become an afterthought, your chances of hiring the wrong DJ drastically decrease.
Digital Marketing & SEO
If you are a millenial couple, you'll probably laugh at what I am going to tell you next. Finding the best Cleveland Wedding vendors is no longer like it was 20 years ago when you used this big fat and bulky book called the Yellow Pages. I can see your "deer in the headlights" look right now as you ask, "What are the Yellow Pages?" :) Now, in 2019 everything is digital and pretty much revolves around one word: "Google". I remember doing my first website over 8 years ago and back then it was easy, you could have something simple and be up and running in a short amount of time. To do it right today you need to have a website professionally designed and updated by a true web design professional. While this is a "cost of doing business", it's a necessary cost today for online businesses so that we can find my clients. Digital marketing and SEO is not something the amateur wedding DJs are likely to invest in. This investment in digital marketing and SEO is one of my best business investments to date. Simply put, I want to find YOU easily. I want you to find me before my competition does. I want to make sure I am one of the Cleveland Wedding DJs you meet with before your make a buying decision. Since you are reading this, my investment is working nicely.
