Did your teachers ever tell you that you’ll never be able to make a decent living if you didn’t study hard and do your homework instead of partying? Well, here’s how you can prove them wrong. Become a party planner!
If you are one the people who enjoy the party life this is a great way to earn, doing what you love. Professional party promoters in Dubai can make a lot of easy money. It is not easy at the beginning, but once you get the hang of it will be lots of fun and lots of money.
The main income of a promoter is the commission (commonly known as the “cut”) he gets from bringing people into a bar or nightclub or some such other venue. It can be in the form of money or it can be some other benefit. Either way the more people he introduces to a place, the higher his income will be. The best thing about this job is that you will make a lot of connections and if you are good you’ll probably get a chance to hang out with a lot of movie stars, singers and models.
Here are a few tips to follow if you are a beginner.
Define your target market
The first thing you must do is to clearly identify your target customer. What is the age group I am targeting? What are their tastes in music? What kind of atmosphere would they like to party in? These are questions that any novice must ask himself before he launches his business. This really won’t be hard for many to figure out, because most party promoters would have been to many parties themselves. Find a market that you will enjoy working for.
Find a mentor
Find someone experienced who will let you work with them. You might ask someone to let you subcontract in a place for a start. This way you will be able to avoid basic mistakes and also learn a few tricks of the trade.
At the beginning you might not get lot of business, but don’t lose heart. You can offer to do a few jobs for free. If you are good, people will recommend you. Advertise using flyers, posters and business cards. Use social media to your advantage. Maintain blogs and join forums. The internet is a great way to reach out to the masses.
Maintain a professionally designed portfolio with all the events you have done.
Research before you plan an event
Before you plan an event, make sure you research about the possible venues and the kind of people that are attracted to them. If you are a beginner see that there aren’t many other events that compete for your customers. Too much competition might ruin even the most carefully organised plan.
When you deal with your clients be polite and friendly. Recommendations of former clients will be the best sort of publicity you’ll get. No one wants to deal with a rude party planner.
This is a dream job for those like to party all night and sleep during the day. Along with the fun you will make no end of connections. This job
will take you places and give you opportunities that most would die for. So make the most of it.
