'@OxygenBeats' That's whats up, I try my best to work with artists the best that I can, but it really makes no sense to sell a beat to an artist that wants exclusive rights only because they don't want a beat that someone else has made a song to. Yet they'll go on a file sharing site and download a Jay Z or Rick Ross Instrumental and put that on a mixtape, I mean how many people do they think rapped on those tracks? My goal even more than selling beats right now is to provide up and coming artists with "basic" information that will help them to at least start building a fan base for themselves provided their music is actually worth listening to.
This way at least they would be on their way to eventually earning some money from selling their music online, which in return would provide them with some extra funds to possibly buy a beat from the guy that made it all happen for them..... (Me).... It does get overwhelming at times though, trying to find solutions for everyone who wants to sell music but hey, this is the field that I want to work in so I do the best I can. What I find to be the most common mistake of most artists though is that they don't have their own websites, nor do they utilize email marketing. It's crazy.... Then they wonder why all their work goes without reward.
I know I'm off subject right now, but I say all that to say this. With the proper relationships it doesn't really matter what you sell your beats for or what type of licenses you sell. Put your energy into providing a great service for artists that will help them to succeed first and foremost, and eventually the money will come, and once it does, you'll have a list of successful artists under you that are actually selling music and doing what they love, which in return will allow you to do what you love.
Sorry so long, I should have blogged this...... LOL
