Pay for Marketing?
Oh marketing. This is where people dive in, get frustrated and end up quitting. You see people buying training videos and infamous MLM networks like Empower Network that some "producers" push that is absolute garbage.
The only marketing I do is creating my own well written articles containing my keywords that point to my website. Seriously, that's it. I'm actually trying to think of ways for you to spend money but I can't. Most of the services out there actually do harm to your business like boostaudio.com and other services that email blast people.
Blasting people is a popular form of marketing from producers today but end up pissing off two important people, #1 Customers and #2 Google. People don't know this but mail relays spam flags to its main host and lets Google know which sites have the most spam "ticks" therefore dropping your website in rankings. Think of how many people have Gmail accounts. Now think how many people mark those blasts as spam docking your website.
This doesn't just go with email blast services but with Twitter and Facebook blasts as well. The point is, don't f*ck with your business this way.
With the web filled with scam artists pushing this and that it's easy to become desperate and buy into some "make money and get that dream studio you always wanted" program that just leaves your wallet empty. Stick to what works.
Personally, focus on making your music better (I haven't listened to your music) but you can always improve on your skills and expand your genres. Jump into some EDM as it's not a trend, it's has roots same as Hip Hop.
Start writing articles about the services you do and pay people to post them on their music blog. You want as many backlinks as possible. Create a Google+ Business page, Google search looks for this. Offer free tagged beats on your player and collect email addresses.
Work on "long tail" Google keywords for your business and write blog/articles and link it to your website and don't stop. I did 2 articles a week for one year and my traffic is excellent.
When you're done making a track, add it to Youtube and put a link to it in the description. (Soundgine gives you a "url" to the track on the player so when its clicked it takes you the player and plays the track, you can find the track url in your beats section. Just click on the hyperlink icon on the right)
A few years ago, I was paying hundreds in various programs to jumpstart my business but it didn't do anything lasting. I realized that if I allocated my resources on creation (making better and new music) that it was the best form of marketing ever.
I know, when you create music and don't pay for "marketing" you feel that you are missing out on something but you're really not, it's all physiological.
Damn this reply actually turned into a blog post but I hope you got something out of this.
