For someone who has never been involved with talent buying, deciding which talent you want and how to go about securing them for your event can seem like a daunting task. Hiring a celebrity event planner with experience in this area can save you time, money and stress.
Choosing what talent would work best for your event or brand and would give you the best bang for your buck is probably one of the best parts of the whole process. Having a veteran talent buyer on your side to help facilitate this process is key to the selection and getting it to the offer stage. “Kicking tires” or “celebrity shopping” is a common time consuming occurrence in this industry and what really slows everything down in the process. The best clients in the world are those who have an idea of what they are looking for, have a budget setup already and are committed to taking their event to the next level. Of course, there are many questions that people outside this industry may have but, that commitment to taking your event to the next level is extremely important. An experienced talent buyer can work with almost any budget, within reason, and will help you determine if that is what your event needs.
Researching talent, contacting agents, checking availability, putting in offers, negotiating, contracting are just some of the steps that need to be taken in order to secure your artist(s) appearance. A third party like Trixstar, are experts at dealing with the many intricacies of booking celebrity talent. Although these services come with a fee, that fee can be more than made up in the money you will save with an experienced talent buyer. An experienced talent buyer is in constant communication with agents all over North America and is aware of market value for talent. Someone who doesn’t have the knowledge of market value or the necessary negotiating skills may pay top dollar because well, to be honest, agents love to make money and don’t mind charging a premium price. Third party companies like Trixstar Productions who book all types of talent on a weekly basis and have influence with some of the biggest and best agents in North America will ensure that you get what you want, when you want and for how much you want.
They are booked!! Now details, details, details, what do you know about immigration procedures, transportation rentals and scheduling, wrangling, hospitality requirements, production needs? Chances are you probably aren’t that familiar with what is expected about some of these details. They can be crucial to give your artist the best experience possible, which in turn they will give you the best experience possible. Experienced third parties will have you covered in all these area and more, making the process for you as stress free as possible.
