Amongst all of the music producers out there selling beats, your biggest challenge will be catching someone’s attention that is willing to take a chance on you.  They are seeking the best music producers in the business.  Most of the largest customers who you will want to attract already know where to buy hip hop beats, and that is the scene that you need to break into.

 One of you best avenues to reach the largest number of potential customers is by selling beats online.Marketing yourself to potential customers will eventually lead you to bigger opportunities.  If you consider every time a beat is used, there are large money-making opportunities out there.  Areas for you to target are radio, television shows, commercials, other musicians, or movies. Beats are used in our everyday environments.

Once you have realized success then you can start to explore the option of music licensing opportunities.  The real success begins once you have licensed your music.  Beats are bought and sold every day, and there is a lot of money out there for the use of your music.  Licensing protects your rights as the musician so that you get paid every time your beats are used.  Initially in your career you may have to promote yourself by practically giving it away.  As a means of getting your name out there that is fine, but you want to get paid for your work.

There are a lot of options for you out there, you just have to remain determined to find those opportunities meant for you.  Whether you start off by giving away your beats until your name is recognized, or you sell them online with a minimal cost, you have to become an industry name.  Once your beats are picked up, then it is important to become fluent in the language of licensing.  This is where you will earn money based on your talent.
