Throughout my years of selling beats I have used various tools both good and bad. I decided to make this resource page to give you an idea of what tools work really well and will help you make and sell beats. I will be updating this page often as I am continually trying different methods on selling beats. I recommend bookmarking this page, as it will be updated often. Enjoy!

If you look at nothing else on this page, these are the three that you should know about. I find myself recommending these resources again and again. I use them because they make my life easier, and I’m confident you’ll agree too.
When it comes to picking a hosting company, speed and reliability matters greatly. When i started to sell beats online i didn’t know much about websites & hosting. I made the mistake of assuming all hosting companies were equally as good as each other!! oh boy was i wrong. Having a slow website, lost me a lot money in terms of sales from beats. When i look back now i can understand why.
I put myself in my customers shoes, coming to my site to buy beats. As i typed the url and pressed enter the time it took to load was awful and it left a bad taste in my mouth. I, as a customer don’t want to wait, i want a pleasant experience. It also dawn on me that first impressions are everything when it comes to websites, so you want your website to be fast.

This is one tool/service i cannot live without. Aweber is a vital tool in allowing me to reach thousands of people with the click of a button. I truly recommend aweber to anyone wanting to sell beats or anything for that matter. I would even recommend it to bands and artists, who want to communicate with their audience. I could talk for forever about this service but my best advice is to go try it, you’ll see what i mean when you use it. Also, the first month is only $1 it’s a no brainer!!!
