    Icon4 How does Soundclick "Free Downloads" work?

    I've been checking out Soundclick profiles, and all of them had similarities. Especially the number of "Free downloads". Most of the profiles had more free downloads than priced beats. If you have majority free downloads how do you make money?

    they don't. Thats what happens. They think by giving away free beats, that people will come back and keep checking em out. It works for a little while, but not long at all unless they in the Top 10. As for as advice, for every free beat I put out, I have to have 20 up for sale. Cuz then people will value your music more.

    That sounds more reasonable than to put all your beats up for free. But yea, I'm just tryin to learn as much as possible before I start my page

    Free downloads are for the cheap artists that would never buy a beat for any price. Giving out free downloads with a production tag on it is a great form of promo. Anyone who hears that beat will know who did it. The serious artists who are trying to make money off their projects will pay to legally distribute the music. Free downloads are for non profitable purposes.

    free downloads are for exposure. When rappers make songs on them they put them up and there is a tag on the beat, so the website they came from or producer gets exposure

    Wrong! First of all there are no Free Beats. There are free downloads in which the beats are tagged. If they are serious then they will purchased the untagged lease. Also the free downloads with tagges are your promo. The more people use your free downlouds the more promo you get. Its simple. Think about it. Everybody and there mom has heard vybes tag.

    Free downloads are only beneficial to you only if you have a decent position on the charts. I feel you should hold off a bit create a demand for it cause the artist I've seen rapping over tagged beats usually aren't that good. Not saying that it isn't a good promotional tool, you just might wanna hold off in the beginning. Cause the ratio to what your giving away is always going to be greater to what your putting in your pockets. So wit that said keep your stuff exclusively to those who are willing to pay for it and keep the window shoppers coming back cause you''ll need plays views .

    Free downloads are just a try it before you buy it promotional trend on that website. That seems to be the norm on soundclick to generate network traffic.
