Selling Beats Online Tip #1: Seed Money Sites Method

Beat Selling Tip #1 “Seed Money Sites Method”
Here is a trick that I do to raise some advertisement cash for my main website. I set up numerous small micro beat sites and sell some beat tapes for on the real low like from $2.99 to $4.99. Each beat tape has 10 beats on it.
I never mention my producer name (The Corporatethief) on these sites I use another alias so that I don’t ruin my main brand. The is nothing wrong with having multiple brand levels just make sure that you don’t mix them up or else it’s a complete cluster fuck for your audience.
Most of the beats are ok but short and sweet. I use another Soundcloud player and pay pal button underneath. I also add many articles on the site about the beats that I have made and how I go about making them.
These images below are 2 examples of my microsites. The first one is just a basic WordPress blog that I set up and spoke about the rap beats that are on the site. I monetize this site in many ways from google adsense to affiliate marketing and I sell beat makers beats using the promote beats and then some of the cheaper beats that I have made.
The second image below is an example of my software beat making tips for beginners site. I upload some simple tutorials for the BTV solo software. Most young people cannot afford pro – tools and logic as they are too expensive to make beats with. So I write and demonstrate this software as it’s affordable for the hobbyist music producer and doesn’t take that long to master.

Email marketing is a great way to reconnect with clients and music fans I would strongly urge any artist that is promoting their music to start building their email list today with Aweber.
I like to talk about the beats that I make to generate some interest and for Search engine optimisation purposes. Most of the time music producers just upload beats and go ham on social media. Just upload beats won’t help you to sell your beats you need actually dig deep and promote and market them.
But if you actually write about your own hip hop beats and speak about them on youtube videos google will find your website so much better.
Most of the music players beat makers try to sell their rap beats on are flash-based music player which make it difficult for the search engines to find your hip hop instrumentals. So, for this reason, I would advise you to start a couple of small blogs and just have a small video and description of how you make your rap beats. Trust me you will thank me later.
These sites generate from $30-$100 weeks and use this money to buy Google PPC ads and email blasts from small hip hop blogs to help promote my main website. I hope this works out for you it. Try and take action today and carry out this seed money sites method today. Don’t rely on other beat websites like rocbattle, SoundClick , beat stars. You don’t have any control over this website, set up and control your own beat websites.
