Hey how’s it going? My name is Chris Bala, and I am an online beat-seller for almost a year now. My first month I generated over $2,000. The craziest part about it was I didn’t even have my own beat-selling website. All I had was a VIP page on a site called soundclick.com. Now I know you have heard of that site before. So if you are reading this you probably want to know what is the best way to sell beats on soundclick.com.. Well I think I can help you out. Here are my best tips for selling beats on soundclick.
Tip #1: Be Unique
It is important to be making beats that sound hot and follow current trends. But it is more important to have a unique style. You see, without a unique style, how will you ever be remembered? You have to remember, Soundclick has thousands of producers on there creating beats that sound alike, so the chances of you being remembered are not likely if you sound like the rest. Be creative, and create a sound that is unique.
Tip #2: Set Your Prices Correctly
The average price for beats being sold on soundclick are as follows: Leases- $24.99, Exclusives – $250-$400. So use these guides for setting your prices and you should be in good standing with the customers who visit the site. There are however a few producers who price their beats alot higher than this, but this is because they have a whole lot of leverage to do so,, they have been on soundclick since it started, so they have a huge fan base that has been following them from day one. But if you are just getting started, you are looked upon as the new guy, so you better have your prices reasonable. Then in the future when you build a big-enough fanbase, you can increase your prices.
Tip #3: Graphics
When you sell beats on soundclick.com, you want to make sure you page looks professional. Remember, there are thousands of producers on soundclick, so if your page doesn’t even meet the standards of the next producers page, you are automatically looked down on, and you will lose sales big time. So make sure your page is professional looking. There are many ways to get your page looking nice. You can hire a graphic designer online to make a nice layout for you, or you can do it yourself if you know how.
Tip #4: Charts Position
If you want to make serious cash on soundclick.com from your beats, you better be on the top of the charts. There are numerous ways to get high on the charts. You can go on myspace and hit up as many rappers you know to play your soundclick player, you can send emails to your mailing list to check out your new beats, you can go on facebook and promote your new tracks, and you can participate in forums and exchange song plays. All of these work, and when you do each one efficiently, your actions will add up, and you will move in the charts for sure. Remember, there is no way to cheat the system, you have to work hard at getting your beats played!
