As a beat producer, it’s important to set up your production business as a professional. One major difference between a pro and an amateur is having a nice online presence with your own website.
That’s exactly what some of our beat producer members have done. Take a look at the website for our member, Chysty Productionz.
You’ll see a nice professional header image and an option to buy music right away on the homepage. You’ll also notice the mailing list signup form right up top which makes it easy for fans to get on his list. Getting fans on your mailing list is super important as email marketing is more effective than Twitter and Facebook combined.
Another great option making it easy for fans to buy is our built in sub-pages. This is a great option if you sell beats in different genres or styles. You can create a page for each style, add the music to that page then link to it from the menu.
Breaking up your pages this way allows fans to listen to all the beats in the style they are looking for. This saves time since they’ll be able to buy the beats the want right away.
Another member doing a great job with his beat selling website is Beats By Ced.
To show off a recent production, Ced added a SoundCloud widget. He’s also added many tracks to the homepage for fans to stream previews of his beats. To show he stays active on social media, he’s also using our built in Twitter feature as well.
Another great way to keep fans coming back to your site is with a blog. You can add topics about you, your music or industry topics in general. Ced does a great job of this on his dedicated Blog page. He’s also got a Vlog page which makes it even more visually interesting.
The great thing about having your own website is that you can sell beats online in several ways. Female producer LBean does this by offering $.99 beats on the homepage, then more exclusive beats on the Beats for Sale page.
Using our built in music feature you can sell beats at a specified price or let your customers set their own price. Also for pro plan members you can use sale pricing or discount codes as well. Another great option is to use a more robust beat selling store like myFlashStore. You can do this by pasting the embed code into our HTML feature as LBean does on her music page.
On many beat sites music takes center stage, but what about the producer who wants to make a name for themselves?
With our custom theme editor you can make yourself stand out like member Al-Taquan’s done. Many of our themes allow you to upload a large header image and you have the option to add several images to make it a slideshow as well.
You’ll also notice Al-Taquan using a dedicated page for his bio. This gives your fans insight about who you are and how you came to be a beatmaker. Fans love learning about you personally so creating an About page is a great idea.
If you’re thinking, “I don’t know about websites, I just wanna sell my beats!” No problem, we’ve got you covered there as well. Bandzoogle was created especially for music producers like yourself, who don’t know how or don’t want to code their own website.
With our sitebuilder you can sell your music (commission-free), promote your music through our social media share options, and stay in touch with your fans with our mailing list. All these tools are already built-in so you don’t have to grab plug-ins or widgets from other sites. Selling your beats online has never been easier!
