    I produce production music clearly targeted for sites like Jungle and Pond5 and I upload my tracks to over 10 stock music libraries with non exclusive deal. But I have also uploaded my music to beatstars mainly for that extra stuff they offer, like a ProPage, a nice media player and Soundcloud monetization.
    I’m really new to beatstars and have less expectations than the other stock library sites, but I’ll give it a try…

    The Beatstars and Airbit markets are extremely over-saturated. You can make money but it’s definitely a numbers game. The guys making 6 figure salaries have well over 100 beats available and are uploading new tracks almost on a daily basis.

    This sounds pretty interesting. I’m one of these producers (from airbit) who make about 6 figures. However, I also think about to distribute my beats in addition to stock music websites. Maybe this will work šŸ˜‰

    InsaneBeatz; glad to see that the online beat sales is working for you. Do mind telling me how long you’ve been selling beats and how long it took to get to the numbers you’re now making? tks..

    InsaneBeatz; I listened to your music on airbit and see no reason why it wouldn’t work on a lot of the stock music sites. I’m curious to know if your income from airbit is strictly from selling licenses or is part of it from utilizing their YouTube Content ID option?

    Affiliate marketing has been far more lucrative for me. I kinda use my beats as a lead generation tool. Then I promote products, tools and course to help solve the problems of the audience that I have cultivated.

    The Beat Player is a great file storage and contract delivery tool, but it has major conversion issues.

    A wall of beats is completely overwhelming for any audience. Selling beats individually has always been ups and downs with me.

    I have some success selling beat packs and using the beat player as a cheap check out processor and file delivery service. I am no means a chart-topper on Airbit? Selling beat tapes on Airbit doesn’t register as individual beat sales. But it’s easier to sell 1 product with one price than having 160 different products and 4 different pricing tiers and 4 different lease licenses. [No wonder rappers don’t buy beats]
