    Well, I wasn't going to give up really but just frustrated, no sales in a week then.


    I can see people giving up selling beats, just be patient and do work!

    Sure does but lazyiness creeps in sometimes then its the "fuck, this selling beats thing is too damn saturated" soon after I reach out and they are getting record setting sales using Soundgine, so it's not just me.

    Even though I made $800 I can't say it's enough to fully support myself. Rent, car payment. bills, school loan, etc.

    I don't want to talk for everyone but I feel most people do this as a side gig and for some a serious side gig. I find it difficult doing this full time because so many people are doing it and selling for cheap.

    I tried going full time but just couldn't get "full-time" money. Instead I use it as music stock that pays off randomly when I get a sale but never depend on beat sales for my livelihood. Instead I look for $400-$1000 a month of extra cash that I would never would have if they were just sitting on my hard drive.

    Some months suck and some months go way beyond I expected. If you're paying for PRO and making more than $20 a month then you're good. My beat sales pay for gas, groceries, and a nice chunk of rent and super grateful for that.

    I guess my point is to be realistic and you'll have a better piece of mind.

    You are only limited by your determination.

    Feels good eh? Keep pushing. Selling beats can be like the stock market, lots of ups and downs.

    Producing & Selling beats for 20 years now I can say one thing.

    "Don't focus on the money, else you won't make it. Focus on a great quality product & it will come"

    Id rather keep my 9-5 stable job and produce on the side making another full time wage.
