Selling hip hop beats online?

27 replies
Hey

I have access to the hip hop beat producer who creates really world class beats. Similar quality beats that are sold for $20-$100 on other sites.

Does anyone have any experience in selling beats online and what are the options? Are there are courses about it? Any products?

I may be looking for a possible partnership and sell private label rights to the beats. I want to sell them to normal clients too.

    Soundclick and Myspace are the two biggest ones. With SC people buy using their system. Myspace is just a place for advertising.

    Have you thought about trying to put up a site offering free tunes to download if you own them and making money through ads. This is good for marketing another site.....

    In addition to having a site selling a much bigger range?

    The market for selling beats online is saturated. Its a huge market and there are sites like Wemix that have a foothold in the market.

    This is the main site.

    Have him try sonic producer from Clickbank.

    Producing videos of him making beats on Sonic Producer will pull some sales. And of course his bonus guide that includes step by step instructions on how to use it will take care of the email collecting.

    I have over 150 unique beats in different styles like gangsta, west coast, exotic and can get many more if needed.

    I don't know if it's a good move to create own website and try to sell it independently. I saw a lot of competition on google but it's not that really tough. I'm still thinking about the best way to approach it.

    I'm in this niche and in my opinion unless you are actually interested in the music you may find the market very challenging. Goes deeper than just marketing. I may be interested in JV.

    The easiest way to sell beats online is to use a service that automates the entire process of allowing your customers to listen to previews, then click to purchase any beat they like.

    There are several services already in place that are quite affordable, and make it easy to sell your music.

    Keep in mind that you can ask a higher price if your beats are available as a collection on a disk. You can test your market by offering them music as both a download and a CD/DVD disk.

    Here are some quality sites that allow you to set up your own music sales sites:

      What's up fam I'm Stretchmane and I thought I could probably help out as I just finished blogging about this a few days ago. I have been trying to sell beats online since 2007 and I have sold a few beats but I got those sales by luck. I tried soundclick, rocbattle, and countless others. The key is marketing fam that's the bottom line. The truth is that soundclick is truthfully not your best option. You have to have a whole lot of marketing money to get on the first page and right now the first page is we're all the money makers are at. Similar to how google works it pretty much mirrors each other exactly. Your best bet is getting a myflashstore player and getting some marketing courses because the money is huge in this niche if you know how to penetrate it. I got exactly what you need on my blog site fam.

      I do not want to look spammy by putting my link on here on the first day I joined so...

      ...If you are serious email me or PM if you want to check out my blog...

    I would try RocBattle.com they have huge traffic. Use Rocbattle to sell a couple of beats to get a buyers share of the market,

    Build Leads then upsell into higher priced exclusive beats later.

    This is the easy way to do this...

      Yes I agree! This a great strategy as Rocbattle.com is an authority site that is dominating a lot of the keyword search terms for this niche therefore bringing in a lot of traffic. The site is now better optimised for selling beats since the new launch this year.

  • Quick Blueprint.

    Step1: Create an optin page giving away 1 beat for free.

    Step2: Deliver Cool Videos, Value & Updates in a follow up Sequence

    Step3: Send a Paid Offer to the list.

    *TIP* Have them reply or make a testimonial if they liked the first beat, in order to get a discount on the second one.

    Just want to point out that this thread is 6 years old...

    The beats market is much different today - much more competition and saturation...

    Almost anything is possible though - just might need different strategies...

    This market is very saturated, so promoting your beats is the hardest part.
    You have to use soundcloud, youtube and other platforms to let people hear the music.

    There are various networks where the actual sale is taking place mentioned by users above.
    You can also consider selling commercial licenses so you can sell one beat multiple times.
