The definition of marketing is presenting your product or service to potential customers in a way that makes them eager to buy. This is the key to marketing. Eighty percent of your time should be spent on marketing.
I see a lot of producers not focusing on marketing.
20% of your time should be spent on marketing and other 80% on making beats. Why? because if nobody knows your beats exist then how are they meant to buy your beat in the first place. If you want to get rich off beats, learn marketing
his is why you're struggling to sell beats and make money from your beats because your all of your focus is on actually making the beats and not enough in the marketing and the promotion. You need to shift your mindset and understanding you're not in the beat selling business, you're in a marketing business.
There are three parts to every business whether you're a beat maker whether you're in retail whether you're in the fashion industry.
1. product (cooking up beats) - 15%
2. admin (uploading, tagging, naming) - 5%
3. marketing (promotion and plugging) - 80%
The three basic parts of a business are product, admin and marketing. Here's where you should be focusing your time on these:
The first part is to focus 15% in the actual physical products that customers will buy from your store or website
next it comes down to admin at 5% for naming, tagging, seo tags etc
then there’s eighty percent for advertising/promotions which includes things such as social media posts across Facebook groups etc- this can include paid ads online too!
a marketing system is something that will never go out of style because it's a tried and true method for producing profit. You can rely on this process in the background, without even noticing its happening!
Email Marketing funnel is a reliable marketing system that produces profit. This makes it one of the best kinds out there, regardless you may have thought about email before.
An email marketing funnel starts off wide and gets smaller as you move down through each section of content or Call-To Action (CTA). The goal for this campaign is to create awareness so that people will eventually purchase something from you
Streamings sites youtube and social media are great at bringing people to you who have never heard of you before. Once theyre aware of you, you can lead them into the next part of the funnel
INTEREST: You buid their awareness by showing them more content. More of what them discover you in the first place. At thgis point you also want to offer them something free to download in exchange for their email address some free beats or free mix and master session
DESIRE: They are now on your email list. Now you will send them regualr emails to stir their desire and get them to buy. Send emails about your beats, offers, storys, testomialals, review. Send emails often and sell often. Most producers arent selling beats becuase they dont make offers enoughs so make offers often.
Make an offer in the P.S. section of the email.
ACTION: This is when customer purchases. Keep sending new emails weekly asking them to buy more.
Now that you know how to start making money off beats it's time to get to work! Start by creating a killer portfolio, and then make sure to start networking with other industry professionals. Get involved in online communities and forums, and always be on the lookout for new opportunities.
