COMMISSIONS FOR BROKERS AND AGENTS ---    I  CHARGE  AGENTS  20%  LESS  THAN  THE  FEES LISTED ON  THE  $ FEES page (see below) FOR BOOKINGS ME.    When agents book other entertainers through me I charge them 10%  less than the entertainers fees.   On the other hand, when agents charge their clients more than those on my $ FEE list I EXPECT TO RECEIVE 25% OF THE ADDITIONAL AMOUNT (of course this is after your agent’s discount has been deducted).  

      If I am asked by hosts,  to extend a visit past the contracted time, if I haven't made other arrangements with my agent, I will charge clients for extended time using the rate you would charge or if I have not been informed of your rate I will charge using my listed customer’s
$FEE arrangement. I will send you your commission for extended time fees        I will not give additional commissions for TIPS which are NOT due to extending the time of my performance.  When clients add tips to your bill,  I trust that you will send it to me.

	OPTION:  Some agents and entertainers prefer to refer potential clients to me without getting involved in all the explaining, booking, billing  collecting and responsibilities.  When referrals result in bookings  I send the referrer 12% of the entertainment fees.   When referrals result in me booking another entertainer(s) I send 7%.   If you refer a potential client to me  be sure to inform me of the potentials name.   You may give me the potential client’s information and I will contact them.  On the rare occasion when a potential client is shopping around and has already called me and has been told what his fee would be,  or if another agent has already referred him to me. I will inform you that he had already contacted me or has already been referred.

       OPTION:  (I refer entertainers with no charge to agents and brokers who practice  a reciprocal relationship me...when we are both eager to help each other with our entertainment needs.)

SUGGESTIONS --- TO OBTAIN MORE/BETTER BOOKINGS]   -Many- Most event organizers seem to allow clients to visualize Santa as a friendly man dressed in red talking to children, clients are not visualizing a Santa who does more than a Grandfather figure.   When your client realizes there is a difference, that a performing Santa is better value, they may find ways to change their budget.   They’re happy they did.  Ask your clients this simple question; “Would you want a Santa who does much more than greet, give gifts and pose for pictures...who will tell stories, include magical effects, and facilitates lots of group involvement?”   You can point out that in many events, hiring additional  entertainers is unnecessary.   Large events will need fewer entertainers because Santa Ed provides a wide variety of entertainment himself,  possibly in collaboration with a Mrs. Claus, helper, elf or activity leader(s).  Point out Santa's talents in audience involvement, storytelling, magical effects, conducting skits, comical routines, etc (all within his role as a Santa).
I included suggestions for programs in the "Santas Programs" pages.     Decisions about which parts of a program should be utilized and which should be eliminated will vary depending on the situations and your clients preferences.  If you have my previous write-ups you can recognize changes, most are self-explaining.    While I suggest these programs for many organizational, neighborhood and family gigs,  I am delighted to arrange entirely different programs which your clients desire.

You may want  to  send  your  Santa’s, potential Santas and other Christmas entertainers to my Santa Claus College.  I assure you that they will add to their abilities and professionalism.
 May your holiday season be bountiful.         Santa Ed                                                                                                 © 2006 & 2009 Ed J Downey
