Dont Wait for the Major Labels, Create Your Own Success From Selling Your Beats Online Now!

Your beat making is big business!

Yes sir! That’s right, if its not it very well should be! Okay let me stop yelling and get down to business. Unless you have been living under a rock for the last 15 years, you know money is being make by people who make hip hop beats.

Of course the first people you may think of are people like The Neptunes or Kanye. But the fact is that there are thousands upon thousands of people around the world making money and even earning a living by selling their beats to aspiring artist around the world.

You should know by now that you don’t have to make it to the major artists with your beats just to have highly profitable business. Of course if you continue to hustle you can always still pursue those major placements for the serious bucks.

But you don’t have to be a starving artist along the way. With millions of people around the world who rap or sing, but don’t have the skill to make their own hot beats, you have an almost endless customer base to sell your beats to.

But so far, your business model for selling beats maybe either,

A. Grinding away in your studio making hot tracks and mailing them to a list of major label contacts and A&Rs who never answer back. Or….

B. You Grind away in your lab making hot tracks to sell one time to local rappers in you area who more than likely are going nowhere with their music career.

Depressing huh? Look, I know, it’s a competitive and over saturated game to get into. But its what you love to do, if you don’t make money at it, some one else will.

“Ok then, How do I do it?”

With internet of course!! By now you know that everything that can be sold in real life, can be magnified by 100000000% on line!! O.K. the number is a bit Ludacris, but then again maybe not…. Just think of how the internet connects you with people around the world that you would never have seen or heard of because of distance.

I have friends whom I’ve never seen in real life, who live in London, Australia, and Nigeria all because of the internet!! And I live in Michigan!! So picture this, in real life, if you’re lucky, have a network of maybe 5 to 10 rappers or singers who come and buy beats from you. You make a few bucks here and there but nothing consistent that you could earn a living from…

But what if you could expand your reach just within your city? You could have a clientele of more 100. Then you maybe able to make some significant money from you beats and call yourself a legit business.

But guess what, Theres even more money on the table to be made by building a website with your beats for sale to people around the world! But there is more to it, you do have to do this thing called internet marketing of your beat website.

Don’t get nervous, its not a bad word or some sort of scam lol! That just means that you need to let the world know that you have opened shop on the World Wide Web. If nobody knows you exist, you will never make a sale.

If you’re not afraid to do some work, and realize that waiting for P Diddy to show up at your door looking for you to produce his next album “Last Boat to Timbucktoo” is a pipe dream, you should learn to market your beats.

It aint easy, but it aint hard either…. Whats hard is knowing there are many other producers out there making money and some who have replaced and exceeded their 9 to 5 earnings from making and marketing their beats online.

All while you sit there dreaming of the freedom they experience from making their passion work for them…

Hustle hard and make some Kool S#$% Lol!
