I love non-exclusive licenses...this is the best way for good music to surface and gives everyone a shot at making a hit record
good info! exclusive is unique..and not on every corner used by everyone
Non exclusive beats are generally just for mix tapes and artiats on a budget... instead of downloading some dj khaled beat that rickross rapoed on its better to buy original beats from upcoming producers.obviosly if its intended for an album the beats should always be exclusive....

prolly best to put up on you tube and promote rather than soundclick
Yawn. Sell non exclusive beats all day. There is no guarantee that you will ever reach a level of "success", i.e. producing hit single, major records, etc. IMO success in the music industry and business is making money doing what you love... no matter how. If you think half the producers that are making joints professionally for major artists now never leased their beats/music... you are probably mistaken.
There are no rules, quit trying to invent them.

Selling non exclusive beats is a good way to make money off of the same beat because you can lease it numerous time at different prices. Leases allow for a producer to fill his library and have a certain beat available for as long as he wants it to be leased. (until it is changed to exclusive) No matter how big the track gets after the artist used it.. once it is a leasing agreement the producer owns rights to that instrumental, no matter if the artist purchased the lease at $1 $.99 $100 .. pricing for leasing does not matter, all thatmatter is the agreement that is made (terms and conditions) that is the most important part. Being a Producer is a business, you must have a business mentality to be able to better understand what you should do. Pricing is something that you will have to think about second, quality should be your main concern at this moment.
Artists need to realize what their budget is.. and on top of that.. need to realize that the instrumentals they use must be quality, because in using quality material it builds their brand and portrays a good rep for that artist. No matter what costs are for leasing or exclusive rights.. the artist must keep in mind that their purchase or acceptance of the agreement is worth it to them.. and if they benefit the most.. Don't be scared to shop around, and try to find a producer who is willing to work with you..
hope this helped..
A lot people will actually buy them without even speaking to you. You'd be surprised man. It's like this if you put yourself in front 10,000 artists in short time span and you are selling a beat non exclusively and your page it set up for them to easily navigate and purchase a percentage of them will buy providing that the beat was decent/hot in the first place. Your chances of making quick sales go up when you have more heads tuning in. Works like that everytime....
Two thumps up on this post. All Real artists should take a look at this
