Do you know why many people are running to the music industry? It’s because there is such a high demand for music and that can only mean one thing when supplied: money. But the mistake many people make is thinking that the only music business opportunities in the industry are singing and producing when there are scores of opportunities out there.
It is also important to note that if you are considering going into the music industry just to make some quick cash as a musician, then you should rethink because a lot of people go into the music business yearly with the same intention but only a few ever make it big. The music business is good business but it doesn’t always have to be about being a performer and churning out hits from time to time.
Become A Mobile DJ
The men turning tables and showing their skills on the wheels of steel are actually one of the most sought-after people in the music industry because everyone requires their services. See the success level people like DJ Jimmy Jatt, DJ Exclusive, DJ Spinall and others have gotten to? As a mobile DJ, you can be the DJ for weddings, corporate events, any and all celebrations/festivals/events, and even be a musician’s tour DJ (because most big musicians have their own DJs). Anytime you are DJ’ing, make sure you connect with your audience and tailor your songs to the mood of the crowd so that they will remember you and in turn not hesitate to either pay for your services or recommend you to those who may need it. Don’t forget to share your business cards and always introduce yourself to the audience.
This is one of the most lucrative opportunities in the industry that many people in this part of the world are yet to tap into. People want to learn how to play an instrument or many, they want to learn how to sing, mix songs like a DJ, how to record and produce songs, and any music service you can think of. But the only way or them to learn is to be taught, which is where you come in by being their teacher. You can target students as your prospective students. Get bookings by handing out flyers, or record yourself teaching and upload the videos to video streaming sites that pay.
Buying and Selling Pop Memorabilia
It’s not just the records people love – they’ll pay big money for anything if it is related to a particular singer or band. Just look at the prices that Elvis and Beatles related memorabilia fetches at auctions all over the world. You could make money buying and selling memorabilia to collectors via ads in related publications, or buy things on their behalf in the same manner as a record supplier, and collect a finder’s fee.
