    Question When Sending Beats in E-Mails

    Sign in to disable this ad
    What is the best/proper way to do it?

    Should I attach a few .mp3's? Should I send them a link to my website/SoundCloud?

    Should I send full 3-verse-3-hook beats or just simple 1-verse-1-hook snippets?

    Thanks for any advice.

    I say do everything you just said. Send 2 or 3 mp3's. Put links in the signature of your email. As for the 3V or 1V versions? I can't help you. I send full songs, but things change from verse to verse usually, plus intro's and outro's. So I wanna get all that out there.

    Also, I think it's good to be short & sweet with anything you plan on saying in the email. If they want to know more, they can check the links you hopefully added at the bottom.

    this has already been covered in a sticky at the top of this section
    https://www.futureproducers.com/foru...-music-361897/
    but one thing not mentioned and ppl forget about is
    TAXI: record deals, publishing deal, film TV placement, recording your music, songwriting
    DJ Idol if you're serious about your music and have polished songs you should join and the ppl reviewing songs on this company where A&R for large records labels so they know the business
    get your songs on BET,MTV reality shows
    WB alot of smooth Rocks cats get on like Supernatural,Smallville, Vamp. Diaries....
    but there is a market for everybody so check it out.. soon as albums are done for me artists on my label they all will have taxi accounts
    because Christian music acts have a audience too
    with
    Fox Faith movies
    movies like
    The Grace Card
    Breaking the Press
    FireProof
    To Save a Life and many many more....
    just loving the way the entertainment/media business is openly enbrancing faith-based artists

    I would send a snippet of ur beat with tags on it to prevent them from stealing it then also have a link to your website where they can purchase the full beat.

    Yea that thread is really helpful. But Id send "indie" cats snippets w/ 1 tag on the beat (intro before drop). Send em 8 if you want, a variety. Send those beats to SEVERAL people. some say this is bad #shrug, if you send the same 8 beats to 20 people and 2 decide to buy exclusives well that s great for you! include a prof. signature in your email, not w/ 20 diff websites and crap. Snippet = intro, hook ,verse..

    I'm not huge on tags/watermarks, but I usually email 1-minute snippets to prevent the artist or A&R from running away with it. Mostly though, in my experience, I just end up sending them the whole beat if they request it which basically means the snippet email is an unnecessary step. Of course, it's all about how much you trust whoever you're sending your music to. If I've built a rapport with an artist and I trust him/her, than I'll send them full-length tracks.

    That's not to say people haven't been exploited before though -- happens all the time. It's always smart to be safe.
