Yesterday I was talking to a friend of mine he is a fort myers dj that started playing in wedding ceremonies and other special events and he was telling me how he was making 6 figures a year doing it. You often hear about people who say they are djs but not all of them are able to make a comfortable living from it.
In this post I want to share some simple ways to make a living in the music industry without actually being famous or anything like that. I hope you enjoy the article.
#1) Becoming a disc jockey. If that’s a passion of yours you can make a great living doing this. It’s all about getting your business well setup. I’m talking website, business card and perhaps a little marketing. These days it helps if you are using the internet to get yourself out there and promote yourself.
#2) YouTube. Yes, there are a ton of singers on YouTube all looking to be discovered. But if you want to make some money in the side and you have a great voice you can start doing covers of popular songs. People for some reason love covers and YouTube has a partnership program that can help you pay the bills if you are able to build a following.
#3) Ghost writing. If you have some great lyrics you can easily sell your creation to many websites and artists out there, of course there is some competition but that doesn’t mean that it’s impossible.
Those are my top 3 ways and of course if you really want money and fame then what it takes for that is a lot of dedication, hard work and patience. Success doesn’t arrive overnight, keep that in mind.
