Music is our part of life and everyone wants to add music to his/her special events. These days’ people prefer to hire a DJ for their party to make it a memorable one. If you have your goal to become a DJ, you can earn a good amount of money.
There are different types of DJ such as mobile DJ who can work full time, radio DJ who works for a particular radio station and gets paid, a bar/club DJ who can work in a night club and can earn money. So, there are so many options to earn money if you want to become a DJ.
First of all you have to make a CD of your performance to show it to the public when they come to hire you. You should have a well recorded CD which you can show them so that they can hire you. You can also make your resume and give to different radio stations. Maybe you will get a chance one day to perform for the public. In the beginning you may not earn a lot of money, but slowly you can work your way toward earning good amount of money in the profession.
You can also perform at different functions such as weddings and can earn large amount of money by working as a Wedding DJ or Emcee. Sometimes you have to work at odd hours of the day, so you should not reject them, but accept every offer because it can be a stepping stone to your success. Try to get second hand equipment in the beginning so that you can perform if you get a chance and try to get complete knowledge about the equipment to get your best performance.
You can work at different occasions to earn more. If you are working at a club DJ then in spare time if you get any offer to work at some party or function you can accept that and can earn extra money. It may happen that your friends may ask you to perform at a private party unpaid. You may find that can lead to more business for you from word-of-mouth.
