    Hey guys, sup?

    I'm starting this campaign to help people like me as a dj, to promote their stuff, i did something similar in my first journey but failed, reason? Hostgator suspended my account for 10 days, i got my website penalized by google cause they used a static page full of ads... after a couple of days they emailed me to SELL VPS PLANS, yes... they crashed my website to SELL A BETTER PLAN ON PURPOSE... Now i'm with Vultr and had no big problems so far except by their price :/...

    Ok, lets start:

    Tools:

    Wordpress
    Cool video/music theme
    Plugins
    Some scripting...
    My intelligence (In case i have some...)

    I'm going to offer 3 forms:

    - Audio (promote music, podcasts, mix tapes...)
    - Video (promote videos, broadcasts...)
    - Social (promote posts, social networks...)

    The main reason for me to start this market is that there's no good website, i'm a dj and i know there is a lot of good djs struggling to be known, most ghost producers pay to be on top... (YOU KNOW ITS TRUE).

    Wish me luck...

    PS.: I'm not going to host anything, just embed their posts into the website and with a bit of trickery get them on top of se's...

    I hate that, the "pay to be on top" portion.

    Mainly because it's true.

    Spend $20k for an artist to use your beat, and then watch the sheep come flocking in.

    Because the industry is so fucking oversatured most talented producers have to forfeit their dreams, sell their stuff as they cannot compete with big agencies...

    Yep. The world is a crazy place.

    Talent will never overtake marketing/money. That's just society as a whole!

    With the advent of social media there is no reason you can't make a killing as a DJ.

    For someone to pay $20k for an artist to use their beat is crazy!

    I would take that $20k and have an Instagram of at least 500k followers and a brand so big that people will pay me 10k to show up at their party.

    Social media bro I'm telling you!

    Mr. Suckerberg doesn't want to see you profiting using his networks, i got terminated by 'misusing the platform to promote business or products'.

    Alright Folks, website is up!

    Been importing some Youtube/Soundcloud/Instagram posts involving djs/festivals/clubs, what i'm going to do next:

    - Import other mixtapes from mixcloud or other website
    - Clean the bot and leave everything aging...
    - Start a bunch of web 2.0's (which i had to do earlier)
    - Setup seo and tricks to index everything...

    Wish me luck!

    Oh and if you wanna visit it someday, http://allaboutdjs.com/
