Back in 2012 when I started this blog one of my first post was on how to make money as an MC. The info in the article was straight from my own experiences as an underground MC/Promoter. As the landscape continues to change I feel its time we revisit this topic and add a little more flair and new strategies!!!!
HOW TO MAKE MONEY AS AN MC “SPONSORSHIP”
Take pride in your art and support of your community by working with local businesses. For a small fee you can act as advertisement. The best businesses is the ones that you and your fans frequent and/or ones surrounding the spot you’re performing at. Nothing shows more support for your community than supporting local businesses. First you have to have a fan base. Without that how can you convince someone you can help THEM make money? Get you a solid base of supporters then go to a business with a plan to increase their customer base by advertising to your peoples and they’ll gladly throw you a couple bucks to help with your show costs. Once you get a good group of sponsors, (more like INVESTORS) to help out consistently and you have successful events you can take it to the big leagues and hit up marketing firms or go direct to the likes of car companies, and Liquor brands.
