5 Ways To Earn Money As A Singer/Songwriter
1) Sell your own songs
The best way to make money in the entertainment industry. As a songwriter is by selling your own music and getting paid royalties every time it’s played on the radio streamed online, or downloaded from iTunes. It may not be easy, but this is how most professional musicians are able to support themselves with their art. If you’re just starting out, don’t give up if you can’t get an agent or find a label interested in your music; there are other ways of earning revenue with songs like self-producing and promoting yourself through social media platforms and live performances.
The easiest way to make money in the entertainment industry with your t-shirts is by creating limited edition and exclusive designs that you can sell on your website or at conventions. This will help you stand out from other T-shirt companies, but it takes more work upfront since you need to come up with a design and make the shirts before you can start selling them.
If you want a simpler process. Try getting your shirt designs print on demand through sites like Redbubble or Teespring. These sites allow anyone to upload their own design. Sell it without having any upfront cost or risk of inventory storage and disposal (since they print what people order). The downside is that these sites take a cut of all sales (usually 10%), so your margins are lower if you go this route.
3)Sell Music On iTunes
4)Make YouTube Videos
Sing Karaoke For Fun
Karaoke is a great way to make money in the entertainment industry, have fun, meet new people, and potentially make some extra money. You can do it anywhere there are karaoke machines or you can use apps like Sing! Karaoke on your mobile device. It’s fun and easy, so why not? Plus, if you’re going out drinking with friends anyway. Then why not get paid while doing something that you would’ve done anyways? If this sounds good to you. Then start by downloading an app and setting up a profile. Make sure that all of your information including age and city is listed accurately. So others can find you more easily.
Once set up with an account, just scroll through all of the songs that other users have uploaded to see if any of them catch your interest – download them onto the app by clicking buy. The next time you’re at a bar or pub with karaoke night, try singing one of those songs from your phone!
