You can also use Soundcloud to promote your beats. You can post 1 to 3 beats a week, and different people can listen to them and even buy them. However, you shouldn’t post more than 3 beats per week because then, you would look like a spammer and people won’t have a good impression of you.
Use Soundcloud “#” hashtags features and also comment on other producers in the same genre as you to check you out and stuff. Also, follow them and like their compositions/beats with the hope they come and check your profile out and return the follow back.
The last tip I will give you is that be patient. Initially, it will be hard to sell your beats, but as time passes, your beats will also be more popular. If your beats are good and affordable, your old buyers will again come to you to buy beats. Gradually, you will start to sell more and more beats.
