smush DJ+promo+flyer+tips 5 Tips To Improve Your DJ Promotions Today!

Now that you’re a DJ you probably feel pretty relieved, right? You think you can rest a bit easier now that you’ve started to get regular paying gigs. While that is technically true, most hard-working DJs will tell you that the hard work really begins once you have gigs you need/want to hold on to.

Sure the jobs are rolling in and your bank account is in the black, but now is not the time to sit back and become complacent. As a DJ a BIG (did I say “BIG”?) part of your job is getting asses in the seats, so to speak. You can’t just rely on your Facebook page and Twitter feed to make sure people show up at your gigs, and if you can…kudos to you!

The rest of us mere mortals have to focus on DJ promotions. That means reaching out to fans, potential fans and wannabe DJs and getting them to show up wherever it is you’ll be hiding out in that dark DJ booth.

smush DJ+mixing how+to Tips To Create A Better DJ Mix

One of the top questions new DJs always ask—in addition to how do I make it as a DJ—is about how to mix.

While it is true that this article won’t be able to teach you everything you need to know about how to mix—there are DJ courses for that—these tips will let you know what to practice.
