What's good fellow Producers? I'm sure right now you have been hard at work getting leads, promoting, marketing and trying to get traffic to your website to sell beats. That's great... You are handling your business! Now, that you've have that aspect of your beat selling business working... What are you doing offline to sell beats? Well... In the pics above I'm giving you 6 examples of what I personally do offline to help my beat selling business. Pic #1- Pass out business cards! This is a bit old school but very effective. It's way more professional than scrambling around trying to find a pen and piece of paper to jot down your phone # or website address! Pic # 2 Self Promotion/Branding! The point of this is help you stand out and make people aware of your company. I have my logo and name on T shirts, hoodies, caps, my coffee cup, and I actually have it on ink pens... Why ink pens you may ask? Well, I hand them out to artists that I meet as kind of a calling card. My website and contact number is imprinted on the pen (cool tactic huh?) Pic # 3 - Studio Sessions! If you have the setup to do this... It can help you make beat sales! Most artists like to bring other artists with them (which means a potential client for you) Plus... Hearing beats on the internet is one thing... hearing them beats Banging through some studio monitors will have them reaching for their wallets!
Pic # 4 - Flyers/Ads - I have flyers placed in a few "Mom and Pops" record stores in my city,ads on Bulletin boards in the local music store, Clubs, etc...
Pic # 5 - Hard Copy/Beat Cd's! Believe it or Not? There is still a large number of people that like a physical cd. Caution: I don't mean burn your music on a cd and write the info with a sharpie! Put some money aside and really make sure it looks professional. I designed my own cover and then paid to get the cd pressed up.
Last but certainly not least... Pic # 6 - Get Out of the House! We all love to sit on our computers and make that money But, It's important to be seen out there among the people! Go to the club, music conferences, talent shows, open mic, pretty much where ever your target audience is! Okay... That's all I have for now... I hope this info was useful to you...
