  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. 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.
