I'm deciding to stop selling leases & doing exclusives only.
I've made a decent amount selling leases but I feel I can make much more.
There's no urgency/scarcity with leases...with exclusives....you snooze, you lose (FOMO).
Plus, having 100+ different songs over the same beat is poor business practice.
Metro Boomin, Kanye, Dre, Timbaland, Pharrell, etc... wouldn't dare do that.
I want to price my beats so that they sell consistently without charging too little or too much.
Because it would make no sense sitting on all these beats when I know there are artists that could be using them.
I'm aiming for $100-500 price range. I'd only make my top selling beats $300-500.
All new beats will be priced $100-200.
I'd still maintain my half of the publishing & I'd still own the copyrights to the beats.
Would I be shooting myself in the foot doing this?
