4 Easy Tips to a Boost Your DJ Career

June 25, 2012 | Comments: 0 | Views: 193

1. Think Big

Over the past 14 years, I have held DJ residencies in some of the top clubs around the world, and played at fashion shows, celebrity weddings and at wrap-parties for several big-budget Hollywood movies, at home and abroad. For a good DJ, the potential is unlimited and your market is as big as your imagination and your work ethic. Your DJ career can take you around the world as it has done for me and many others. Remember, great music is universally in demand. So if you have a valid passport and willingness for travel, the world can be your stage!

2. Find a Niche

I can tell you that there are tons of opportunities out there for good DJ. However, It is extremely important for a DJ to find a niche, and to develop a good reputation amongst the event planners, party promoter, agents and club owners that operate in that niche market. Make sure that the niche market you choose is something you like. The more you look forward to your gigs the more motivated you will be to perform well, which will take you very far as a DJ. Likewise, the more you practice to perform well, the better DJ you will become, which again will make you more marketable. There is absolutely no substitute for hard work in this industry. So find a niche and get to it!

3. Keep an open mind

Making a name for yourself as a DJ in a particular niche can leverage your DJ success for years to come. But while looking for a niche, remember to keep an open mind. Outside of the clubs, DJs are often in demand for weddings, fashion shows, special events or wherever there is a need for good music. In addition, opportunity, for money success and future career advancement can lay in some very surprising places. Deejaying in strip clubs, for instance, can be quite lucrative. Several famous DJs have gotten their start playing in the strip clubs in Vegas, Atlanta and Miami, which eventually led them to fame and fortune. Remember, success often requires us to think outside of the box, so keep an open mind.

4. Stay on top of your game

For most of us, deejaying is not only our passion, it is our business and like any other business the information you operate on can make the difference between success and failure. Networking, like in any other business can create pathways to success. Therefore you should cultivate relationships with other DJs, promoters and agents in your area, or in the area in which you are seeking to score gigs. Furthermore, whether it be through DJ blogs, forums, videos, magazines or books, in order to rise to the top of the game, you will need to seek inside knowledge from those who possess it.
