Artists have become rather firm parts of the economy. The reason behind this is that people are spending money on art in rather large quantities, but this doesn’t mean that all artists are rich. Much on the contrary, artists and producers are generally quite poor until they come to a point where they can suddenly cash in on the fame that they have accumulated over the years. This makes them quite unwilling to compromise on their prices, and if you are selling your beats online you might be of a similar kind of mindset.
It is understandable if you don’t want to sell your beats for any less than you think they are worth. However, learning how to start selling beats is all about realizing that playing the long game is crucial here. You can earn a good amount of profit from a single beat but this won’t be enough to make you rich. Instead you should focus on selling lots of beats to lots of people, and the only way in which you can do this is by looking into selling at a lower price than would have otherwise been ideal for you.
This will be a bitter pill to swallow without a shadow of a doubt but it is one that needs to be taken for the good of your career. It is pretty much the only way in which you can start building up your portfolio, and high paying clients will probably never hire you until and unless you have a diverse portfolio that you can end up showing to them. Don’t be discouraged by low rates that you get at the start, after you gain some experience you will earn more.
