Should you promote beats on SoundCloud?

Yes! You should have a profile and some of your beats on the site.

You should claim your music producer’s name on all social sites and use SoundCloud to promote your website.

If you do a search on SoundCloud for “Beats for Sale” you will find multiple producers with thousands of followers. Those are potential customers.

3. Tag Your Beats

There are sites online that make it easy to save MP3s from SoundCloud. So add audio tags to your beats to protect them from being stolen.

Include direct links to buy a beat in the description of the beat you upload. Many producers just include a link to their website, but make it easy for the listener to buy a beat by providing a direct link.

You can link directly to single beats with the Music Maker WordPress theme.

When adding beats to SoundCloud add the buy link and link to the beat in the description.

  1. Thanks Mark for this post. I didn’t know how it’s important to add a lot of hashtag on my beats on soundcloud I was thinking something like “No body cares”, you just change my mind.
    Also, you probably know since about two month ago soundcloud delete the groups, is there an alternative ?

  2. Thanks for the pointers man! :) Soundcloud is def a great place to promote and sell beats.

  3. I don’t have any social media or websites. How will I receive my money if I sell a beat?

  4. Mario, did you investigate ways like Paypal, or maybe even setting up a website ? Look at the top of this page and you’ll see Mark has provided a link that goes to the page about ‘How to make a website’.

    The Serious Beats vid is good. I’d slept on that one. Thanks for putting it up.
