"When & Then...👊🏼"
A lot of questions that come up with my clients are how to deal with promoters, booking agents, or venues, making, sure you get paid your deposit, ahead of time, and conducting yourself in a professional manner
I adopt a "When & Then" strategy, it's never failed me, it's polite, and it's firm, meaning you can weed out any potential time wasters, preserving your energy for bigger and better gigs.
For example, a promotor enquires and wants all your promo before a signed contract...
👊🏼 "When you sign the contract and have paid the deposit, then I'll send you all the relevant promo material"
👊🏼"When you have received the proposal, then I'll hold the date for a week for you"
Or if you have students or clients on a payment plan and it fails
👊🏼 "When the payment is made, then I'll send you the link"
You can be polite about it but having this when & then in place is a really useful strategy to hold yourself in a pro-like manner.💕
