Learn to How Start a Karaoke Business

Aug 15, 2008
Would you like to karaoke every night, or at least several times per week?

Do you enjoy being the one working the karaoke machine?

Has your entrepreneurial spirit led you to look for a fun business?

If you answered these questions with a resounding "YES!" then becoming a karaoke DJ may be just the thing you have been searching for! Getting started as a karaoke DJ may be easier than you think, too!

What exactly is involved in starting your own karaoke DJ business?

Most importantly, you need some good quality equipment: a professional level karaoke machine, microphones, speakers, a monitor for the lyrics, a large karaoke music library, speaker stands, and cords. Some clubs have their own speaker system you can plug into.

A lot of them now have large television screens, too, so if you have a karaoke machine which utilizes a television to display the lyrics, you don't have to provide the monitor. So in some locations you can get away without bringing the speakers, speaker stands, or the monitor, but very few clubs provide their own karaoke machine or their own karaoke music.

If you would like to cut down on your expenses, and on the amount of equipment you need to haul in and set up at each gig, a great suggestion is to look into The SongStation Karaoke Machine. This karaoke machine is high quality, and provides a lot of features to simplify your karaoke DJ business:

-> It's small and light, the size of a slim-line DVD player.

-> 5 minute set-up: It plugs right into a TV for the monitor, and either uses the television speakers or hooks up to the club's speakers with ease.

-> It includes the largest karaoke song library in the world, with 53,000 titles inbuilt into the system.

Using The SongStation Karaoke Machine would set you up as a professional karaoke DJ right off the bat.

What else do you need besides your karaoke machine to start your business?

A dynamic personality to cheer on the crowd and get them going is a big plus! Also, a good singing voice is an asset, because sometimes it's YOU who sings the first karaoke song!

You also need business cards with your contact information to help market your business. To get the business started, you want to talk to every club owner you can reach. Places like bowling alleys are also starting to catch the Karaoke bug, and often enjoy setting up one night a week as Karaoke Night. New retail businesses may want to host a Karaoke Night to start bringing in their customers.

Radio stations are candidates, since they host promotional events all the time. Locate your local wedding planners, event planners, party planners. Leave your cards with caterers, florists, wedding photographers, videographers. Even your local churches and school districts may enjoy having a Karaoke Night fundraiser. Party supply houses might let you leave a stack of business cards at their registers. The supply of new leads for your Karaoke DJ business is endless. Everyone loves a good Karaoke Party!

And last, but not least, you can always run the ad: Have Karaoke Machine. Will Travel.

So with a little guts, a little gusto, and a karaoke machine, you can soon be on your way to Karaoke DJ happiness!
