    Calvin Harris made $46 million this year! Like anybody else at the top of their game, he is well paid, but I just had no idea these guys could make that amount of cash!

    You won´t make much unless you are a sucessful dj.

    I think there are more unsuccessful dj:s per successful dj than there are successful internet marketer per unsuccessful internet marketer and we all know how few of us that started that actually got successful. So, Nah I probably stick to IM, less competition and I prefer to listen to djs rather than trying years to be a dj and maybe never make it. ;)

    As an Internet marketer we have the ability to work hard and we will soon see the results in better serp or conversion rates, a dj can improve a lot and be really good, still he can´t see the results in more cash as we internet marketers can. :cool:

    I was just amazed that these guys, even though at the top of their game, are pulling in more than CEO's, brain surgeons, stockbrokers, etc. $46 MILLION!!! Crazy money. That said, I often listen to this mix while doing SEO-related stuff

    Never you mind.
    Calvin Harris originally comes from a town not too far from me.

    ANYWAY.

    DJ's tend to make more than artists believe it or not. Well, in general.

    He's more than just a DJ, a regular DJ's job is to simply play a record, he's a music producer with his own original track list. Electronic/Trance/House music is the largest genre in the world, with the right buzz you could make good amounts off of touring, even as a mediocre edm producer/dj playing smaller venues & clubs across the globe.

    I think, successful internet marketers make way more than that, right? Because I have seen a lot of media buyer, site flipping etc. experts bank a huge amount of money.

    There's an awesome documentary coming out about a musician who absolutely hates everything associated with "being a DJ" (music, fans, etc) but decides to take the time to record a Dubsteb, Electronic, whatever the hell it's called album, and ends up touring, and making money as this fictional artist: all the while laughing at the people who love this stuff. It's hilarious. People will be surprised when they find out who it is.
