Speaking of tips...

Post by Kristal on Wed Mar 25, 2009 5:13 am

When you're at events, do you put a tip jar out? If you do, do you ask the client if they're okay with that, or do you just put it out?

If I have given them a discount (which is only for non-for-profit events) sometimes I will include putting out a tip jar as part of my conditions for the discount (the reasoning is that it will help offset the discount.)

I have had groups say they don't want me to on occasion, which is fine. I accept tips no matter what but they are unsolicited.

I've actually only put out a tip jar once - and it did bring my hourly rate back to my un-discounted rate for the gig.

At one gig a dad put a tip in my water container as he thought it was a tip jar!! LOL

I always put out a tip jar for pay-per-face events. If I am hired at a big discount, I will ask if I can put a tip jar out. If I am working at my full rate, I never put one out, but I always accept tips if someone wants to give me one.
