3. Marketing Platforms

When it comes to marketing and promotion, one of the best ways to gain exposure is through various media platforms.

YouTube

YouTube is still one of the main locations people go to find beats. To really capitalize the use of YouTube learn how you can create captivating thumbnails, enticing titles and strategic tags. You can then leverage the traffic to send customers to your beat selling website.

SoundCloud

The majority of new upcoming artists are on SoundCloud, so it makes sense to be on there too.

Instagram

Take advantage of IGTV to be able to post longer beat videos, live streaming and stories of new music that your working on.

TikTok

A relatively new player in the game, if you can be one of the first music producers to take advantage of the platform you will have a heads up on the competition.
