Hey, this is DJ Hurricane here in South Beach, Florida. In this clip we're going to talk about how to start a DJ Business. And the first thing you want to ask yourself is, "What type of DJ do I want to be?" Do I want to be a Club DJ? Do I want to be a Wedding and Bar Mix for DJ? You know, do I want to be a DJ that works at the malls and the stores? So you're going to have to approach every different type of client or starting a business in DJing's differently. The one thing that's true is you're going to need some business cards and you're probably going to need a couple of demo mixes showing off which skills you have and which you can really apply on the turn tables. Some great resources on the Internet to help you market your DJ business are things like Facebook, going.com, MySpace, Hi5, Twitter; you know I'm going to use them as DJs use them to promote ourselves. Every venue we go to, we're posting up, we're sending messages and inviting people to our gigs. We are posting up photos right from the gig from iPhone onto Facebook and Twitter. So these are things that help you build the fan base and a following and have people all week long checking out where you're spinning, what picture uploading and what new mixes you putting on Facebook or, or going.com. So definitely the Internet revolution is easy to start a DJ business and get some exposure and again, just don't forget it's music; have fun with it; rock the crowd. This is DJ Hurricane, South Beach.
