Wow! That is tough. So, the coolest event I ever did was the wrap party for New Girl. It was in December and Zooey Deschenel sang several Christmas songs. I love her and it was such a treat so see her perform live Christmas songs. The best event I have done was a very large event where we had 8 different stations (each station was different) at USC. The team was amazing and the event was flawless. Super pumped with the amazing team I had and the client was so happy.
Tracy’s 3 Tips for success in the photo booth industry:
Always Answer your phone
I have gained high profile lifetime clients/business because I answered my phone this one particular time. I also lost a huge client (MTV back in 2007) because I didn’t answer my phone.
Differentiate yourself from your competition.
Photo booths are basically a commodity these days. You need something to make yourself stand out from the rest so you can charge more money and get it.
You can say NO.
We have all been there, saying yes to anything and everything because there are bills to pay or whatever. Sometimes you are much better off saying no when your gut tells you to.
