Did you search online for ways to make it as a full-time music producer?
Do you find yourself always being sold a marketing course?
If you’re like I was at the beginning of my career, you want to focus on what you’re passionate about: music.
Not paid traffic and ads.
Not social media tactics.
Now I’m not knocking marketing. I think all the high-income skills I have just listed are fantastic to add to your arsenal at some point.
But when you start, I find it easier to build momentum by doing what you’re most proficient at: making great beats.
So the strategy I used when I got started was to find people to do the marketing and selling for me. Obviously, everything of value has a price tag attached to it.
If you’re familiar with my work, and my book “The Bedroom Super Producer”, you know that I advocate starting your beat-selling business using the power of music marketplaces.
There are TONS of websites on the web that are ready to sell your music to serious customers RIGHT NOW.
The idea is to understand the following:
Once you have figured these things out, your sales should pick up.
You won’t go from zero to a hundred overnight.
It’s a process.
But what is incredible about this method is that you start automating sales. Passive income allows you to stop trading time for money. So if you get monthly sales from one or several of these online platforms, guess what?
That’s additional time you can spend on developing the rest of your business!
So again, you don’t have to learn marketing when you start your beat-selling business. Partner with established players and create multiple streams of automated musical income.
Start small and start slow.
When momentum starts to pick up, THEN you can start taking more control over your sales process.

I studied, got degrees, got safe jobs, but all the while, my inner voice asked me to please, PLEASE follow my passion for music. The problem is I half-assed it for a very LONG time.
