How to succeed as a jazz records collector

There are fewer more fulfilling passions or careers than that of a music collector. They make a living taking care of some of the most fulfilling music records in the world. It is the classic definition of living the life you love, everyday surrounded by some of the most creative and passionate musical records ever made. Even then, success in this field, just like any other, needs a lot of hard work. If you are just starting out or thinking of a career as an art collector, here are some the things you must think about.

Vision
Ultimately, it should both be a thriving business and an interesting collection. This needs a clear vision. Think about the vision as a note in a musical record. Every record you sell will represent a note or musical instrument. How the records turn out in the end is often a reflection of how well the different notes and instruments gel. Approach the collector’s business like this. Have a single purpose that will set your collection apart, and strategize on how to achieve this purpose.

Identity
There are several collectors out there, and with the digitization of musical records, the competition is much larger and open than before. The only way to set yourself apart is by having a unique identity. There are many success stories out there, and there is always the temptation to model your establishment against them. When you copy a vision, you will only succeed in looking like a copycat. Do not be afraid of going bold. Carve out a niche for yourself, define you reputation and be ready to defend it. Customers should always know what they are getting from you, and why it is different from everyone else.

They say jazz is one of the few authentic American art forms. Still, there is so much more to it, from Classic American Artists to contemporary jazz. To truly stand out, one must specialize. Find a niche in the jazz industry and specialize in providing the best. This is the only way to become an expert, one that people will look to as a source of information.
