What Makes a Good Beat Making Video?
Having a good beat is a MUST. If your beat sucks, it doesn’t matter how good your video is. Be entertaining to keep your audience’s attention. Short videos are suggested. Get creative with videos and editing. Aim for good quality and good lighting to help your videos look professional.
2. Remix Popular Songs
Remixing songs is a popular way of building a fan base. By remixing a popular song, you can use a music artist’s name to get more views.

Thanks Mark! This is helpful. Will I need Adobe Creative Cloud to edit the designs/text?
Thanks for the comment.
You would need Photoshop to edit any of the Photoshop designs. I pay $9.99 a month for the Adobe Photoshop Cloud Software.
