In this blog, I want to identify what helped me over my 9 years as a Melbourne based DJ and how it can help you achieve big things in a shorter time. This is for the bedroom DJ/Producer, deciding to make a career out of DJing, who can see a fulfilling future for him or herself in the music industry.
Networking is an essential skill for all DJ’s that want to know to how to get booked for DJ gigs. It is all about connecting with other people when it's time to grow a DJ following, your brand and getting more success in nightclubs and the music industry. When I started my journey as a Melbourne DJ, I had no clue about networking and how it would affect my career.
Being the introvert I was, I felt uncomfortable meeting new people, but if you want to get the gigs, you must go all in.
Here is what I have learnt and hope you gain some benefit from.
