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:
Top Beat Selling Websites:
BeatStars is a production music marketplace and technology company that provides music producers the tools and applications to license music anywhere online. They have over 350,000 musicians registered. You can also upload up to 10 beats for free.
Another benefit is you will get to embed they’re beat player onto some of your social media sites so your followers can check out your beats.
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.
Beat Brokerz are a premiere online marketplace for supplying Rap & Hip Hop artists with top quality instrumental beats. There’s a few things that set Beat Brokerz apart. One of the things they do is automatically register music uploaded to our catalogue in our digital copyright registry. When you sign up to Beat Brokerz, you are also instantly backed by the knowledge and experience of seasoned industry professionals, as they provide numerous guides on selling your beats, so you become a better business person, not just a beatmaker.
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.
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:
- Domain (example www.mutualsoundz.com)
- 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.
