I started this website because i love making beats. For the past five years it’s been my life. I get to wake up everyday, get my cup of coffee and make beats all day!! At times it does get a bit frustrating but i wouldn’t trade this way of life for the world. I’m not making millions from selling beats but i make enough to live comfortably and i enjoy what i do so i’m not too fussed about the money.
It might seem like i’m painting beat making as an easy life, but this wasn’t always the case. In the not so distant past i was working in a factory, don’t get me wrong the money was good but i wasn’t the life i had envisioned for myself. I wanted to make music. Music is my passion and i like all sorts of music, i’m not segregated to one genre. So i made the decision to leave an income behind and pursue my passion.
I knew that i didn’t want to go back to work in a factory so if i didn’t achieve my goal, i would have to have a safety net to fall back on. I decided to go to university i wanted to study music but i was afraid that it would ruin my passion in music. Why, you might ask.? The simple reason of having to justify everything you write with a reference. The technical approach to a degree bores me. I loved the practical side of it but the technical reports were painful to say the least.
Throughout my time at university i learned a lot, both in and out of university. I had only approximately ten- fifth-teen hours of lectures a week, so i had a lot of free time. During this time i set up my beat website and started making beats, spending a lot of time researching techniques on how to sell beats. Before long my beats started selling. I was so driven by the success that i was working 10+ hours a day without a care!!!
All the information i put up on this site is the culmination of years of research and hard work. Please use the information on this site. It’s there for a reason , to help you. If you have any questions, please don’t hesitate to contact me, i’ll do my best to answer any questions you have!!!

MY MOST RECOMMENDED TOOLS TO HELP YOU SUCCEED
Thrive Themes is a tool that enables me to create these amazing landing pages in a matter of minutes. My resource page and my whole website is created using Thrive Themes.
I've been using WordPress for a long time and, to be honest, I always thought it was the best tool for the job. But recently starting using something that changed my mind (although I'm still using WordPress):
After seeing what this new plugin does, I don't think I can ever go back to the "normal" WordPress editor. I didn't even know it was possible to have this kind of a completely visual editor, but there it is (check the link for a demo video).
Before now, I never realized just how much time I was spending waiting for page reloads while creating content in WordPress. You can save massive amounts of time with a "live" editor like this.
And what I love about this tool is that it doesn't just replace the boring and clumsy old WordPress editor, it's also a whole sales-page-building suite! If you build marketing pages and landing pages, this thing is brilliant!
It is very easy to create sales pages, squeeze pages , download and thank you pages. All in a matter of minutes.

When it comes to picking a hosting company, speed, and reliability matters greatly. When I started selling beats online, I didn’t know much about websites & hosting.
All of my niche websites are hosted on Bluehost. Why? Because they make it incredibly easy to get a new site up and running with their one-click automatic WordPress Blog installation.
I made the mistake of assuming all hosting companies were equally as good as each other!! oh, boy was I wrong. Having a slow website, lost me a lot money in terms of sales from beats. When I look back now I can understand why.
I put myself in my customer's shoes, coming to my site to buy beats. As I typed the url and pressed enter the time it took to load was awful and it left a bad taste in my mouth. I, as a customer don’t want to wait, I want a pleasant experience. It also dawn on me that first impressions are everything when it comes to websites, so you want your website to be fast.
I highly recommend using Bluehost for your first website, and you can get started now at $3.89/month.
When it comes to selling beats, Airbit is a must for hosting your beats. Airbit is an all in one solution for any producer wanting to sell beats online.
No matter how many beats, online profiles, or websites you have, Airbit players can be integrated seamlessly to give you and your customers a professional and fully automated service to sell instrumentals on many other websites.
Your customers can listen to your beats, select the beats they want to buy, and place their order directly from the player. Thanks to the technologies of html5 you can take Airbit players for selling beats and place them all over the internet to maximize your exposure as a producer.
I recently wrote an article on how to place the Airbit player on Your Website, it can be found here – guide on how to add Airbit to Website
This is one tool/service I cannot live without. Aweber is a vital tool in allowing me to reach thousands of people with the click of a button. I truly recommend Aweber to anyone wanting to sell beats or anything for that matter.
I would even recommend it to bands and artists, who want to communicate with their audience. I could talk for forever about this service but my best advice is to go try it, you’ll see what I mean when you use it.
Also, the first month is only $1 it’s a no brainer!!!
