Are you a DJ wanting to get your business events out there? If you have a big gig coming up, you want to make sure you promote it properly. This is important in order to help you drum up business and get you more gigs in the future. You can’t go to your event and expect more gigs to just fall into your lap. You have to be sure you are going out and trying to get the business if you really want your DJ career to be a successful one. Since this is your first event, you don’t always know what the right avenues to take. Here are some ways to better promote your first big event as a DJ:
One of the best ways to start promoting your event is by getting people to come see you at the venue. Just like many venues do, you need to make flyers and get them handed out. You can have several people help hand them out for you or you can post them up on boards that are seen by lots of people. When you do decide to post flyers or even handing them out, you want to make sure you are marketing the right group of people. Not everyone will be excited to come hear you play, so you want to go to the areas where there are people who would. If you live around colleges or universities, you should gear more towards the younger crowd who would be more likely to come and listen.
Another great way to get word out about your big event as a DJ is through social media. By using popular social media platforms like Instagram, Twitter, and Facebook, you can reach thousands of people very quickly. Not only does it help to market yourself on these platforms, but others will share your event to their family and friends if interested. This is a great way to market to a multitude of people. You can even set up an event on Facebook so everyone has the information and they can let you know if they are going or not. This is especially great if you need to know about how many people are coming.
More and more business owners are networking with other businesses to help cross promote events. This can be extremely helpful in helping you get the word out. If you know of other bands or DJs who will also be at the big event, then you should look at marketing yourselves together. This can help make it more affordable by combining your marketing budgets. You may also want to talk to other businesses and see about them sponsoring you. This can help increase your marketing budget.
There are numerous ways to better promote your big event. This is just three ways you can do it. You want to target a certain genre to really take advantage of the budget you have.
