Hip Hop Beats For Sale

How many people search the term “hip hop beats for sale”?

There are roughly 1,300 searches each month on Google for the keyword phrase “hip hop beats for sale”.

First of all, if you’re on this page because you are looking for hip hop beats to buy, then click here to check out our hip hop beats. 

As a beatmaker/producer it is so easy to question the demand, especially when things aren’t working out for you. But this statistic alone, proves that there is a demand and this is just one variation of the search phrase.

If you aren’t getting beat sales, here are some possible reasons why this could be:

  1. You haven’t identified your target audience.
  2. Your beats need more work.
  3. You don’t have a marketing strategy in place.

These are just 3 of the most basic explanations for lack of beat sales. The fact is, there are so many artists out there, most with their own original sound that, as long as you are actually working on your craft, there will be an artist out there who fit your style of beats.

One mistake we made at the beginning was trying to sell our beats to anyone and everyone. We hadn’t identified who are target market are. For example, if you have hip hop beats for sale, you should be focused on contacting hip hop artists.

Before you start marketing, it would be a good idea to identify a few things:

  1. What are you trying to achieve?
  2. What is the ideal age range of your customer/client?
  3. What is their gender?
  4. Which country do they live in.

There are obviously a lot more questions you can ask, but this is a great starting point.

Another thing you want to do is research on your competition. Which beatmakers/producers sound similar to you, or are achieving what you want to achieve? Success always leaves clues, so it’s always a good idea to look at what they are doing and then tweak it so you don’t look like a clone of them.

Anyway, thanks for checking out this post.

Maybe you’re just getting started with making beats, or your already making money online. Either way, you should definitely add the beat selling websites we discuss below to your arsenal:

#2: https://airbit.com (formerly Myflashstore.net)

This was the beat selling website we got started back in the day, before we ever had our own website. It was the site that helped us to make our first sales, so they come highly recommended! Airbit also allow you to upload 10 beats for free and take 0% commissions from sales.  They’re beat player is responsive across all devices and is easy for customers to use.

 

#3: www.beatbrokerz.com

Recommendation

From our experience, we feel that it is important, especially at the beginning to use all the tools available to you. There we recommend join these 3 sites as well as any others you find. Yes, it is going to take some time to upload your beats unto all of them, however, you are not going to know which site your beats are most popular on or sell unless you try them all.

 

Next Step

Once you start selling your beats online and become a bit more advanced, it would be a good idea to set up your own website.

This will give you the opportunity to build your own brand, also it is never a good idea to rely on another website. Imagine all of these sites were to close down tomorrow, what would you do?

 

Creating a Website

Creating a website may not be as difficult as you think. There are only 3 things you really need:

  1. Domain (example www.mutualsoundz.com)
  2. Hosting
  3. Beat Player

It’s always a good idea to do your own research. We use Bluehost for our domain and hosting and have never had any issues.

For your beat player, most of the beat selling websites out there allow you to embed their player on your website so that’s not a problem. After a while, we decided to invest in a theme and plugin that meant we didn’t have to rely on any of these. If you like the look and layout of our website, check out the Music Maker Theme.
