4) Put together a CD
5) Create a brand / image for yourself
6) Build a Following
7) Promote and Market yourself effectively to your following
It always amazes me how few people get these simple steps right. (Either you get it or you don’t).
Case in point… I volunteer for an agency called MusicBC which is a part of FactorMusicCanada. Its our job to decide what artists get funding from the Government of Canada for producing and marketing their music. There are sooooo many DJs out there that apply for these grants (free money from the government). Of these hundreads of DJs that apply, very few of them understand the basics of how to become a really good DJ and how the music industry works.
I’ll give you an example. One DJ was applying for a grant to help her produce (create) a song in a professional studio. Under her plan she said “Upon recieving the money I will use final cut pro to produce my album.” Final Cut Pro is movie editing software and can’t be used for audio editing.
Another example is…
a guy who wanted funding to promote himself as a DJ. His plan was to print off long resumes about him and to mail them to record labels. First of all, nobody reads a written resume…. they want to hear a CD. Secondly, record labels don’t sign DJs. Club managers and promoters do.
My point here is that The above mentioned DJs could have gotten up to $25,000 had they found a DJ mentor, did some research and took some action to get some answers.
So get out there as soon as you can and start learning!
Hang around other DJs. Meet record label owners. Track down big name DJs. Buy DVDs and DJ Lessons. Find videos like the ones that are featured in the newsletter! Go online and don’t be afraid to ask questions on DJ Message forums.
Just get out there, have fun and the world will be yours.
