    Just an update from when I started. Posted awhile back about making some sales but I have learned tons since and I want to share.

    Things I learned

    1. Don't spam your brand
    2. Work on making your beats better
    3. Expand your genre, I currently sell more EDM than anything else
    4. Be patient

    Most of the money has come recently and I'll tell you it's because of the recent additions Soundgine made with the player. The new sales options make selling much easier for customers.

    Don't ever believe that selling beats is dead or the market is oversaturated. The only thing dead is the person that believes that.

    I see you have a decent flow of traffic. Do you mind sharing your traffic techniques?

    Sure!

    I usually average approx 350 visits a day which isn't much but it's targetted traffic. I actually got the tip from this forum here Guys, there is a goldmine there if you take the time to read.

    What I did was setup micro blogs, so for example I have a micro-blog about how buying a beat helps rappers, another one is steps for a rapper to make a song. The more micro blogs you create, the most targetted traffic you get. It's work but pays off literally in the end.

    I get sprinkles of other traffic from social media but not like the micro blogs.

    Congrax, just passed my 10k mark but admittingly, I don't work on my craft every day.' @Helix' I think he means Wordpress. You can get Free Wordpress blogs

    Helix is right. Use Wordpress blogs. But here is a protip I learned the hard way.

    Use different emails for each blog. Wordpress claims you can create different blogs under one email but Wordpress removed a couple of them because it violated their terms? After some research, I found that Wordpress really restricts to one blog for each account.

    @Industry' How about Blogger?

    Sorry for the delay in response, family is over for Christmas already, lol.

    For some reason, I have not had the same SEO success with Blogger, not sure what it is, Blogger just not as strong like Wordpress in my opinion. I would stick with Wordpress if I were you.

    Hi' @Tone' i'm glad about your results, and honestly i'm in a bad period,you know when you think that maybe you are wasting your time since you think its impossible to make a living with that? well, that's me in that moment.
    So if you don't mind, may i ask you some questions? Maybe its better in private so we don't go off topic, if you prefer this way :)

    Sales always go down when (for me anyway)

    1. It's Friday
    2. It's Sunday
    3. Any Major holidays (except Black Friday)
