10 Tips to Start Beat Selling Business

First things first, in order for interested individuals to find your beats and buy them, they first have to know “where” to find them. Now, many producers tend to use beat-selling platforms, e.g. AirBit or Beatstars.

However, having your own website will give you the chance of setting your own prices and earning more money for you’re not obliged to pay commissions. Using Music Maker Theme to sell your beats, personal website, server, and domains is required.

In order to create your name and reputation in the business, you have to study your competitors. For example,  do some analysis regarding their web designs, their marketing strategies, and their approaches. Learning from other people’s experiences will save you great time and effort.

Check what your competitors within your genre are producing, their style, and technique, and how you could improve to make your beats stand out and make your beats sound better.

The best place to check for competitors’ styles is on Youtube and SoundCloud.

3. Website Traffic

Next, you want to have your website promoted. Moreover, the quality of your traffic is equally essential.

Thus, you have to know where to get your traffic from, for example, search engines, social media, referrals, and email marketing. Be active and do not underestimate the power of any of these aspects.

Making the most of your website traffic will increase beat sales, using youtube with “hyperlinks” backlinking to your website or online beat page (Airbit or Beatstars) will online drive more customers.

4. Connections

It isn’t all about just selling. The impact of the relationship between you and your customers is significant.

So it’s very important to make sure that your customers have the experience of their life when dealing with you and your beat-selling business.

5. Email Subscription forms

Furthermore, email marketing can be argued to be better than social media marketing. That’s because you allow people to trust you more when they find you whilst checking their emails.

Therefore, collect your visitors’ emails and keep on marketing your products and this will lead you to create ongoing relationships and connections and turn your visitors into loyal customers.

There are many online free email marketing platforms, below are 2 of our most favorite.

  • Mailchimp (up to 1000 free email subscribers, unlimited emails, pricing for larger sub list)
  • Mailerlite (same as above, upto 1000 free email subscribers, unlimited emails, pricing for larger sub list)

6. Investment

Obviously, to get into any business or industry you got to buy some tools and services. However, be careful and choose wisely the things that will effectively help you grow your business.

Note that cheap doesn’t always mean better and remember that in order to make money, you have to spend money. Invest in what makes your business faster, more convenient, and more effective.

We highly recommend paying for professional DAWs and VST plugins, having a wider selection of music production tools will only provide a wider choice when producing your next big hit.

7. Data Tracking

Certainly, you’re not just going to succeed if you’re not tracking your movements, your sales, and other significant aspects.

Therefore, there are some tools out there developed especially for you to study the behavior of your website’s visitors. For example, Google Analytics and Clicky will help keep track of your visitors’ interaction; where they click on your website for example. This will benefit you to make further improvements.

Google Analytics would be a great choice for tracking your visitors.

8. Test it All

After everything is all setup, you should test it out to make sure you’ll be getting the best-desired results. Moreover, there are websites like semrush, ahrefs, spyfu that will help run tests on your website to figure out what brings you the most sales. Test your marketing designs, your prices, and beat names.

9. Establish products and services

Now you want to expand your way of thinking; don’t keep selling and offering the same things. Similarly, think of what your audience is in need of. For example, there are some products that you can sell online other than your beats like drum kits, background music, sample packs, educational materials, software presets, and many others.

Think out of the box!

10. Patience Patience Patience

As cliché as it may sound, you need to be consistent, persistent, and hard-working! Plus, remember that hard work pays off eventually.  Keep your long-term plan in front of you and don’t let the ups and downs that are normal in any business have you stumbled and lost.

Nothing is easier than getting discouraged but remember how much it’s worth it doing the thing you love.

If you make a beat and it doesn’t sell even after 3/4 months, look for any possible mistakes that you may have made, and how you could improve on your quality, mixing and mastering, and overall composition.
