    Selling beats online.....just some thoughts

    Sign in to disable this ad
    It's a complete joke, and not like a Jimmy Fallon late-night halfway clean celebrity zinger joke. It's like an Aries Spears "Arnold Schwarzenegger getting head", or Louis CK style blunt defamatory joke. It's only going to become an even bigger joke in the years to come.

    "Don't believe me just watch".

    The way Trinidad James admitted to finding free beats for his successful tape will only push more rappers to front like they grown, independent men without $20 for a beat lease. Lebrons come out? $300 plus dropped on em. $20 for something that can help their career and put they name out there? Nah.

    If you want to sell beats and make a "killing" online, remember this pecking order from left to right (highest worth to lowest):

    tiny amounts of money > bros > hoes > weed > alcohol > food > paying bills > having nothing but a stussy tee and a box to live in > eating your own shit > drinking your own shit > shit itself > someone else's shit > sucking dick for weed > sucking dick for money > sucking dick to get off > buying reasonable beats online

    for these wannabe rappers today. Just remember this before spending your hard earned cash on beat site fees. Build personal relationships, trust me.

    And if you have actually made money/can make money online selling beats (like I have and can), more power to you. But even we who have been broken in must admit, it's a ****ing joke. LOL.

    Bruh, stop preaching. People want to sell beats online. Telling them to not do it is going to make them go even harder.

    ^ Certain people yeah, but some will heed my warning. If people go harder then whatever that's what people do. They should just watch "Pursuit of Happiness" and see Will Smith playing the poor salesman. That's damn near spot on with selling beats online. If it looks glamorous then push on.

    I am trying to understand your logic.

    You are saying since a lot of artists are downloading free beats, and some aren't buying them, you suggest producers to stop trying to sell their beats online?

    Don't take this the wrong way, but your whole post has a lot of anger and frustration in it. It appears to me, and maybe even others, that you are not making much sales from your product, and if you are, not much.

    Well, heres the thing. There is always going to be people who "Steal" product. But at the same time, there are still thousands of people that are out there still willing to purchase product. So your logic is kind of poitnless to me.

    You'd be surprised on how much money a lot of these guys are making on sites like Soundcloud, YouTube, and Soundclick selling their beats online.

    As for Trinidad James, yeah he has used "Free" beats, but to this day, he actually goes to SoundClick and buys beats from producers on there. I actually happened to be on his Twitter feed, and read a tweet of him buying a beat a week back.

    But yeah, don't be so pessimistic, with that attitude and outlook, you are setting yourself up for failure.

    Peace.

    No, I'm setting myself up to get some REAL $.

    Notice that I'm not saying that you DON'T sell beats online, I was stating that if you expect to make a whole lot of money doing it ONLINE, don't hold ya breath in these times. That's basically a post for new guys anyway because people already doing it will have it better. I'm stating the obvious, selling them in person should make you more money, and if you can do that then go for it (never seen a producer sell a beat for over $1,000 purely online).

    My POV - Sell beats how you want, but online is a "****ing joke". I've well surpassed what I invested in it, but it's still pretty lame lol. If there are thousands willing to buy beats ONLINE, and you know this, name 200 buyers. It's just not something to get your hopes up about with the CURRENT market. Nothing wrong with the truth.

    Money is out there it takes a long time to get into a position though a lot longer than people are really ready for this ain't an easy blow up during summer break come up. It takes some years, and consistent good years because there is so much to overcome in just the sheer amount of people trying to do this alone. But I agree you can close the deal a lot better in person and for bigger numbers than online. For a multitude of reasons.
