Ted from Australia oral contracts (6) RE: oral contracts 14 Oct 99

Good one Kendall, I like it and will use it. It is all a matter of "feel" I used to have a draft contract ready if I 'felt' that that was the way to go with a particular gig. That being said , 99% of my gigs never had a written contract attached and I have never been shafted. Unless you count late cancellations, in which case I insist on a 50% cancellation fee if I cannot get a substitute gig. But then again I am a big bloke and people don't like to refuse me when I "reason ";-) with them.
Tip: Answer to THE QUESTION "How much do you charge? " or "What is your fee?"
Answer "What is your budget?"
Surprising how many will blurt it out, and also surprising how many times their answer will be in excess of the fee you are thinking of charging.

Regards, Ted.
