Have you been DJ’ing for a while and suddenly you feel you want to take your electronic dance music career to the next level? There are plenty of ways to go about doing this. One thing you can do is to get DJ’d at parties where you have some acquaintances or who happen to know your music taste. Sometimes just having someone to introduce you to the world of DJ’ing beats and new songs can be a big boost. It gives you an opportunity to see what it’s like and to meet people with similar interests. If you happen to know the DJ at a party, ask them to play your song for you one time and give you a call afterwards.
You can also find out what’s popular and in style when it comes to electronic dance music. This way you’ll know what kind of music you should play at your next big event. For instance, if your friend loves trance songs, then you should steer clear of songs that have a lot of bass. Bass heavy songs have been known to cause overheating during dance mixes. If you really want to make an impact, you should learn to play a song that doesn’t require a lot of scratching. Your DJ will love you for that.
You can promote your upcoming song through online sites and emails. The web is a great place to start because there are a lot of DJ’ers online who will be more than happy to email you with recommendations. One thing you should remember when posting your song for online discussion is that you need to put your ID on the email. This way you can be sure that everyone who sends you an email knows who you are. You never want to be recognized online by your own name!
Another great place to get info about your upcoming electronic dance music gig is on message boards. Look for message boards that are related to your chosen genre of electronic dance music. They will provide links to websites and free mp3s that you can listen to. Be careful though, because some message boards are full of spammers looking to take your money. Make sure that you can identify the people before giving out your information.
Some of the most successful electronic dance music promotions have been done through word of mouth. If you know anyone in the music scene who is promoting, then speak up! Let them know that you’re interested in being involved with electronic dance music promotions. A lot of people will be glad to help you and they’ll give you their contact information.
As well as this, try searching the internet for related keywords. For example, if you’re into electro-house music, search for “electronic dance music promotions” or “party promoters”. These will bring up many hits towards your site.
If you have the time and money available, setting up a website can be a great way of selling your CD. You could also sell directly from your website by creating a classified section. Classified ads can be found online for free. Simply do a search using the correct keywords. If you’re going to sell your own music, set up an affiliate account. You can promote your own electronic dance music products through this account and earn commissions from every sale that you make.
Promoting electronic dance music is fun. With all of the opportunities that we have today, there’s no reason why you shouldn’t get involved. If you find that you don’t want to spend too much time promoting your own music, you can even hire other people to help you. There are plenty of freelance writers and web designers available for just such a purpose.
