    Not sure this is the right place for this, but since i see so much people having succes, i gotta say..

    honestly, i have been producing, mixing and mastering for years now.
    i had a site, took it down, renewed it and i have one up with the soundgine player right now.. but to me it seems like back in the day i could sell beats more easily. Sure i was using a few different beat marketplaces, which helped me to sell some. I don't use that no more, because i just think it's better to focus on my own site.

    However, i have huge trouble trying to sell beats right now. Man, it looks like people don't even want to download beats for free (in return of newsletter opt-in), because there are so many producers doing the same things as I am.. I kind of don't know how to start over/go on selling beats without having a marketing budget. Let me just say this: i have been using soundgine for maybe one year now, but i have not sold 1 beat with soundgine. However, I refuse to stop.

    Sidenote: of course i am using social media as a tool to promote myself.

    "However, I refuse to stop" this statement alone will propel you to success barring your beats are good. Let's take a look at your website. Mind if we take a look and give you pointers?

    Your website seems pretty good, well laid out, do you have a counter that can tell you how many hits you are getting daily?

    sure, well i got a mini google analytics installed in the back-end of my site.
    see attachment for a lil screenshot. As you can see here, there's already one problem we can point out: the bounce rate is way too high.. also, i think there are just way too little visitors. but i cannot compare it to any other site, so maybe y'all can tell me a lil about your amount of site visitors

    btw, thanks for all the help.

    From my experience you get 1 sale per 100 visitors, so the question is how do you them right? I guess that's always been the holy grail of all questions. It's mentioned on the Godzilla Seo thread here

    But creating outside blogs is a good idea. Honestly it takes a lot of work to build a fanbase, do you have a Youtube channel?

    yessir, although, i didn't do anything with it for a long time. I just recently started to upload (beat) video's.
    I wish 1 sale per 100 visitors was true for my site also, but clearly that ain't happening, otherwise i would have at least a few sales. Do you all use the Credit Card feature on soundgine? Also, what do you think is used the most, is there a significant difference between how many people prefer to pay with CC instead of Paypal? My 2checkout account is not working 100% right now.

    Sorry I'm late. Actually just now recovered from my Superbowl party, never again.

    What's crazy is that I've met' @Kid V' in Venice during a Snatchap App party (not really a party, just a bunch of people drinking wine and beer) but it's crazy how this community is really tight.

    '
    @Marketron' has recently mentioned it before. but I'll be more specific. I got my word out by exchanging links with companies related to what I do. What I do is offer a section of my website or better yet create a separate hub (blog or website) and offer to exchange links or create a partners section.

    Then I go after companies similar to the same base. Examples:

    - Soundkits
    - Beat Software
    - VST Websites
    - Soundclick layouts (yuck)

    I stay away from those 'beat training sells' videos as those are now perceived as spam / scams.

    As mentioned before, when they ask for a link title and a hyperlink you want to use your keywords. So if you want to rank high for "hip-hop beats" you want that title in the link going to your website.

    After getting just a few link exchanges you will see a boost in ranks.
    This is not for the weak, it takes a stomach to take a lot of rejection and no responses to email and phone calls.

    Here's a secret that some people are doing. Some producers are doing two things. Running a site to sell music and using a resource hub focused on link exchanges and used as an excellent way to redirect traffic.

    What I found was for every 100 visitors it would convert to 1 sale.

    In 2009 I decided that instead of providing beats for artist I would provide a service for producers. Went into the Beat tag game and now number one on Google for Beat Tags. I was thinking about selling beats online again but I know its a lot that goes into selling so my focus always falls back to beat tags. On the 31st of December I left my job in radio to go full-time ME !! I am going to REALLY try and get some beats up on my player since I been with Soundgine for a long time and still have not put them up for sale :-( . The success stories here are inspiring and make me have hope for selling tracks.

    This is really inspiring (o^_^o)

    I guess it's easy to assume that any business is dead. Sure it can be saturated, but there is always a market for good product, quality beats is no exception.
