Beat Selling Website Tutorial ???? Part 4 Making A Static Page & Contact Form
This is the section of the Beat Selling Website Tutorial where I show you how to create a newsletter and how to add an opt-in form on your website for people to subscribe.
The quickest and most profitable way you can promote you beats online is by using email marketing. Social media is on the decline and it's becoming more of a pay to play game.
When you have an email list you have much more control over the promotion and selling of you hip hop beats.
It's best to create a simple option bribe to give people a reason to sign up to your beat site.
Most beatmakers give away free hip hop beats in exchange for an email address. This is the common hook or bribe that beatmakers use. You can also use PDF's blog content, video course or discount codes for people to sign up.
I also show you how to add the email option form on your website so that people can subscribe.
