How To Sell Beats On Autopilot
Sell Beats Using My #1 Tip
Whether you are selling beats online or through a network of recording artists that you work with this article is for you. If you are struggling to make money in the world of ‘Beat Selling’ or any industry this tip will make all the difference.
At Maxxbeats.com we sell beats of all kinds, Pop, Rap, Dance, R&B, etc. etc. and we have return customers big and small from within the music industry as well as from up and coming artists from all over the world who trust the products we sell and this is why….Please Read on…
We Don’t actually sell “Beats”….
You must be scratching your head and saying..”Huh??”
What I mean is the beats themselves is not what generally gets someone to buy from us. Of course our quality is top notch and that doesn’t hurt but It is the story behind the beats that gets people to spend their money. Your story, your brand is what is most important to someone who is about to spend money with you…The brand in this case is “YOU” not your beats. if you can grasp that concept then you can start to focus on not what you HAVE to sell but more on why people should want what you have to sell!
Keep this very important fact in mind. There are literally hundreds of thousands of “Beatmakers” pushing their tracks for sale out there. Unless your product or brand says something different then you will just be another face in the crowd.
The reality is that there are a ton of super talented “Beat makers” out there and anyone who has a computer and some inexpensive software can throw together some sounds and call it a beat. Anyone can sign up for a domain name at GoDaddy.Com and make a simple website and add a beat store from a company like BeatStars.
The thing is unless you have a great story behind you and your beats what is going to make your product stand out from the rest of the herd??
Psychology behind The Story…
The story is everything. Before an artist whips out their hard earned cash they want to feel excited. they want to know that they bought something of great value. Your story will be the difference between sales and no sales. It will be the difference between someone passing up buying a $5 beat or actually buying a $1,000 beat from you over and over!
Way before Maxxbeats.com existed I already sold countless beats and productions worldwide and some for well over $20,000 each!
You see its the story…I grew as a producer ..starting from the bottom way back in the 90’s. Over time I remixed, wrote and produced more and more songs and eventually they became Billboard topping songs…I have had over 60#1’s on the Billboard charts.
Here’s a little video about how I got started in the music business:
Build Your Credits
If you look at our credits you will see we’ve worked with all kinds of artists. Each one of those projects is advertising for us.
Whenever someone is happy with their experience of working with you or buying something from you they will love to tell others about that experience. That is how my career as a producer has grown and that is how you need to approach your beats business.
Even if you start out giving beats away to a few local artists to get them to Tweet or post on Facebook about you that promotion is worth something to you.
People are more likely to buy from you when they see that others already have so make sure to publicize your latest projects on your social networks, websites, etc. with local artists and ask them to mention their experiences working with you on their networks as well.
Here is a recent example of what I am talking about…
I recently remixed a project for Supermodel Carmen Electra under the alias ‘Funk Generation & H3dRush’
Here’s a screen shot of a post she Tweeted about working together:
As your reputation grows your client base is likely to grow! It doesn’t happen over night though so be patient.
BUILD YOUR STORY!
“Trust” is The #1 Reason why we sell so many beats..
