WHY USE AN AGENT?

t
  • An experienced booking agent has a multitude of contacts and resources and can quickly find the entertainment that you have in mind.
  • An agent also knows the standard operating procedure of the business and will make sure to do everything that is necessary to secure the entertainment that you have chosen.
  • Entertainment prices quoted by an agent can be even less than going directly to the entertainers. So essentially, you do not pay extra for agent services and you save money booking  performers through San Francisco Booking Agency.
  • Because an agent has established relationships with performers, he/she can assure you that your entertainment will arrive on time, dress appropriately and conduct themselves in a professional manner.

HOW DOES AN AGENT GET PAID?

Agents receive a percentage of the total fee charged by performers and entertainers. Because agents quote discounted prices, the total fee is less than it would be if you contacted a performer directly, even with the agent’s fee included.
