The guy books bands, so I charged him $20 for the both since he's going to recommend a few bands to me. Part of my business plan is that nothing ever costs more than $40. I've just been charging $20 for everything.

Now is the time to do some math.

As you start getting regular customers, start tracking how regular they are. If you get enough of them, you may be able to get what legal pros call a "retainer." But to do that, you'll need to see how much they're spending over a given period of time- monthly; every 3 months; every 6 months, etc.

Simply put, you try to sell people on the idea of paying you for work you haven't done yet, offering them a price break of some kind. If done properly, you'll reap the benefits of a regular cash flow, slightly enhanced by the time-value of money.

I keep a record of who I did work for, what I charged, what I did, and if they payed.
