Selling beats doesn’t start and end at your store. Selling your beats requires marketing, so the most popular social network amongst people who consume music, Instagram is a great place to sell your beats.
Below are 7 different ways to achieve that goal.
Follow Popular Producers.
How do you find out what get lots of followers? You do some research! By following popular producers, you can see where they are going right in terms of keeping their followers active, and also where they might go wrong (Lower likes/comments on posts)
Use their format to attract fans because what works just works. Don’t always try re-inventing the wheel to get followers.
Use Popular Hashtags
Applying hashtags to your posts may at first seem cloggy and intrusive, but remember you are here to maximise your network on Instagram. People search using hashtags, so make sure you pop up when they search. Popular hashtags such as;
These will make you appear on results when people search on these sites. If you appear then they might follow you, and in turn you are building a platform to advertise your product.
This video, will show you how to use spaces to hide your hashtags in your captions behind the ‘…more’ option.
Create a Professional Account
A professional account is not something that is hidden for regular users. A professional account is what your account looks like to someone who clicks on your page. Having bio which represents your brand properly is a good start to getting people to not mistake your page for someone who will hound them to listen to their music. Create an atmosphere where people want to hear your music.
Having a link to your website should also be in your bio too so they can check you out and see what you have to offer. Soundcloud is not really good enough anymore, you need to invest in your own website to really stand out. Check out Website by DGMusicPro to get us to deliver you one for a low price.
Knowing when to post is essential so that you can catch your audience when they open up the app. Doing some research on when the peak use of the app by your audience is will get you a lot more interaction with your posts.
Use High Quality images
We are all up for using Memes to get people’s attention because let’s be honest. They brighten up everyone’s day.
But be sure to use high quality ones because your feed is a representation of your brand so try to be consistent with the quality of images that you post
Post Something Unique
Anyone can upload a video of their beat online, but get creative and use custom videos. Music that goes viral on instagram always has a simple video that is unique. Look at Bobby Shmurda or Rae Sremmurd – Black Beatles. Visuals always get people’s attention.
This video may be advanced for some people, but should be relatively simple to follow. It is some a software you can get on trial to see if you can get to grips with it. It will be worth the effort when people stop scrolling to hear your content.
It also creates a consistency to your theme and brand. Worthwhile in the long run.
Throw Some Discounts Up
As with the beat stores on websites by DGMusicPro, and other popular beat stores, you can set up discount codes. Why not place some up on your feed every now and then, to entice people to look at your page. If they aren’t interested straight away they may download a free beat, sign up to your email newsletter, and buy a beat 3 months down the line.
It’s all about creating the right image in peoples mind when they come across your Instagram
Social media is a powerful tool when used right.
Create your buzz and sell your beats straight from the platform in which you built on Instagram.
