How to Price Beats (Pricing Stats)

If you are a music producer selling beats online, here are a couple of tips on how to price beats for more sells and better revenue.

I researched over 70 of the top beat selling websites on Google and took notes on the prices for the different license options.

The most popular beat license options are:

  1. Non-Exclusive Lease – Includes an MP3 file.
  2. Premium WAV – This is a non-exclusive lease, includes a WAV file.
  3. Tracked Out – Includes tracked out stem files. Usually includes the WAV & MP3 file.
  4. Exclusive – Includes all the files and exclusive rights to the beat.

  1. This is the craziest pricescale I have ever seen. Who is leasing a track for $25? Only 10% are over $795 for exclusive? How and why are y’all talking these ridiculous numbers.

  2. Bro i still dont understand the defference between lease,tracked out and exclusive need more explanation about it but also need more help on creating a page on beatstars

  3. Excellent tips and advice on beat pricing. If the quality is good though , I don’t feel lowering your price is a bad idea a least for limited time period. Thanks.

  4. Great information on beat pricing. however, I would like to see how the success of these prices play out. Do $25 leases really sell better or is this the most common price producers sell at?

    1. Hi

      I don’t know if $25 leases sell best. But I think it’s always important to test ideas out to see if they work.

      Like maybe for 2 weeks test one price, and another week test another price.

      Just a suggestion. ??????
