Try This Method To Monetize Your Mix As A DJ

Try This Method To Monetize Your Mix As A DJ



The past couple of months have granted me an opportunity to work with some of the most amazing deejays in my hometown, country, and internationally. I started a YouTube channel called eMalahleni Deejays BestMixes 2020 with hopes to launch an entity that will be used as a platform for mixes/sets to be easily allocated by people all over the world focusing on South African brewed and key music such as kwaito, gqom, amapiano and etc. The general idea is to connect with people all over the world and try to get gigs for some of the deejays that feature on my channel via this concept.

 

DJs and More is a platform where we share different ideas and strategies that can help bring about a way that can help DJs monetize their work. It happened that as a lot of deejays sent their links to allocate their sets which were mostly in an mp3 format and hosted by various sites for downloads, I started to notice a pattern of the following:

 

Most of the songs were copyrighted  and sometimes that led to the content being blocked by YouTube,

  Monetization is NO OPTION as the content already belongs to another creator,

    As a Third Party in this matter, I was faced with the possibility of my channel getting a Copyright Strike,

      Most of the rights and licenses barely favor anyone outside of a creator, which is fairly the reason, and as for

   Fair Use, we can barely use much of it in this case.

This led me to research and develop this strategy as a result. Here is the strategy, I have come to notice that YouTube allows links on your description so that helped me to realize that you can’t take credit for the songs on the mix but you can take credit for the set which you have compiled or play. That is where our monetization system is rooted.

 

 Link shortening sites/shorten links

 

These are sites that will shorten your links to give you cleaner and shorter links to share with your audience. Some of these sites are free and others will pay you per number of visitors but today we will focus on those that will pay you.  How will that get our mix to monetize OR even more where do we begin? Well, follow these steps and get your mix/set monetized.

 

 

 

Step 1: Find a file hosting site

 

This really depends on the browser that you are using on your device. ‘Firstly, go to the SEARCH ENGINE then search for file hosting sites, where you can upload your mix to get a link.

 

Step 2: Link shortening sites

 

As I have stated before, you can find a lot of file shortening sites using your search engine and I will share some of them with you. 

 

 

 

Here is my Top 3 list:

3. Payskip

 

Fixed Payout rates / 1000 Visits

 

This site pays anything from $12 to $0.35 per 1000 views depending on the location of the audience.

 

 

 

Step 3: Find traffic for your link

 

You can go for paid OR free traffic; it really depends on you at this point. You need to make sure that your work reaches people so that you can increase your visitors list to get a better payment.

 

 

 

Free Traffic source includes:

 

Google

 

YouTube

 

Facebook (which often restrict sharing these types of links)

 

Twitter

 

Instagram

 

Reddit

 

Quora

 

Telegram

 

Pinterest

 

 

 

Paid Traffic source Includes:

 

Google Ads

 

Facebook Ads

 

Paid Ads

 

 

 

Step 4: Recommendation

 

Most of the time, mixes are hosted on sites as MP3 for downloads but here is a trick that can really help you. Start a YouTube channel for your mixes then uploads them on that channel as MP4. This will allow you to have the link on the description and get you more visitors. What is the benefit of doing this you ask? Well, YouTube is the second largest search engine after Google so that can give you a chance to get better traffic.

 

 

 

Step 5: Get paid for visitors

 

Whenever downloads reach a certain number of visitors that will grant you an opportunity to receive payment. You can easily set up a payment system and get paid through passive income.   This means you will only do the work once and set up everything to get paid for a lifetime.

 

 

 

This is one of the strategies that I truly believe can work and has unlimited potential yet the results may not be typical and whom so ever gives this try stands a great chance to profit out of it.
