It’s important to note that this method may require different equipment and more technical expertise, so it’s a good idea to do some research and experiment with different options to find the best one for you, or to stick with the virtual world option described above.
Build your brand. Once you have the equipment and skills you need, it’s time to start building your brand. Create a unique name and style that represents you as a DJ. This can include a unique avatar, clothing, and even a virtual stage. Make sure your brand is consistent across all your social media platforms and website.
Promote your shows. Once you’ve built your brand, it’s time to promote your shows. Share your events on social media and invite your friends to attend. You can also collaborate with other DJs and event organizers to gain exposure. Don’t forget to add you event on our agenda as well 😉
