Tips at Corporate Events?

Post by Flying Laughter on Mon Jun 08, 2015 1:07 pm

I think I have hammered out my regular and corporate pricing.
alien *happy dance*

Now I am wondering if having a tip jar at corporate events is kosher.

Can I have one out?
Can it be a standard practice that is included in my contract?
Should I get an ok from the client first?
Should I offer a discounted hourly rate to the client if they agree to letting me have a tip jar?


How much can a person make in tips at those sort of events?
IS it even worth it TO HAVE a tip jar?


Thanks!

I would not put one out if they are paying top dollar. (I would discreetly accept tips after a first, "Oh that's really not necessary, the company is taking good care of me" & pocket it IF they insist anyway.

Now, if it is a fair or something for the general public, I think that changes the game plan a little & unless yu have been told not to, I would totally put one out.

I just finished a 2nd day at an event - I asked about Tips and gave three options:

1.) Put out tip jar
2.) No tip jar but accept if offered
3.) Decline all tips

They came back and said "no tips" - that kind of sucked because I pretty much had to double my speed (and paint usage) based on amount of people at the event and turned down a number of tips - definitely could have made some big money from those tips alone >_<

Better to ask forgiveness, than ask permission. The Disney rule, I've been told, is to decline a tip once or twice, then graciously accept to prevent the guest from being uncomfortable.

I have it on my service agreement.
May we put out a tip jar? ___Yes ___No
Usually, they say no, but I graciously accept tips handed to me.
