1. Set up a Patreon page

This website will soon open your horizon. It is very easy to use, simple and a great opportunity to secure minor income at the beginning of your journey.
2. Create a virtual tip jar
Create a virtual tip jar on your social media. You need to consider yourself an artist, which means people love art and love donating to that cause. Be smart and try to attract fans, people who are willing to help and try to convince the people who care about you to give you full support in your quest.
3. Create, curate and monetize Spotify playlists
This is the future! If you are well informed you already know that playlisting and streaming sites are becoming extremely popular. Well, don’t waste your time. Spotify and Apple Music, for instance, are always open to new suggestions. If you use a little creativity and present it on some of these sites, you can even expect to monetize your playlists.

4. Think “out of the box” to get gigs
This is very important if you want to succeed as a DJ. You need to think out of the box. Your creativity doesn’t apply only when you create music, but when you ‘implement’ your creation on your listeners. Try to attract as much fans as possible. Try unorthodox method and make your best efforts to forge a permanent bond with your fans.
5. Have a day job that allows for DJ/producing at night
Be aware that you must not neglect your regular life in order to become a DJ. If you are truly dedicated, you will have to find a proper way to manage your ‘project’, but stay sane and rational. You are supposed to find a day job that will open enough space for working at night, organizing gigs, producing etc.
6. Become affiliate associate on e-stores
Try selling your products online. This is usually very hard mission, almost all success lies in the advertisement, but still… You can never know and you lose nothing. Create free accounts on sites like Amazon and wait. If you start making progress and buy some nice advertisements on your facebook page, for instance, you can expect your merchandise to begin.
