    Icon2 *EVERYONE Read* How To Get People To Check Out Your Beats

    I decided to write this because I see people who post up beats and get little to no response on them, and it's not because their beats aren't hot, but because they aren't using the techniques to get people to listen to them. So here are a couple guidelines that if you follow should help you get more views.

    1. Make hot beats

    This one is a given, lol, and that's what we're all trying to do. It's not really a guideline but you should definetely post shit you feel is hot. If you don't think it's tight, other people might not either.

    2. Post ONE beat at a time

    Why, you ask, would I post only one beat, when I could get people to listen to three in one post? Because it's easier for people to listen and provide quality feedback to ONE beat at a time. Give them one thing to focus on and they can provide all their attention and advice to that one thing. Plus, if you have three beats in seperate posts, the get more talent points by giving PROPER feedback to all three seperately and we all love talent points.

    3. Use an easy listening media

    That may not make sense when you read it but here's what I mean: no one is going to take the time to download your beat from rapidshare to listen to it, no matter how hot you are. It takes to long, and it may be something they end up not wanting to listen to, and it uses up their rapidshare slot...we hate when our rapidshare slots are used up. Also posting up your myspace isn't good either because users with slower connections have to wait for your whole page to load and have to leave the message board to check it out. And you probably have more than one beat on there (see guideline 2 for why this isn't good). Do us all and yourself a favor and use zshare or soundclick so we can just stream it. Soundclick is free and you can embed a player right in your post so this is indeed the best option

    4. Slowly build up a name

    What I mean by this is, if you're new, or haven't posted anything in a while, don't flood the section with a ton of your beats. Start off with one or two and let people reply and build up a rep as a good beatmaker and then post more. People will then start checking out your stuff based on your name

    5. Give a good description

    Describe what you got going on in your beat. Is it mixed, is it finished, what's the vibe on it? Do you want specific feedback on certain parts? This will help you overall in focusing on certain points and will help those looking by knowing a bit about what they are about to listen to

    6. Give thanks

    You know how you thank a post to see a link so that you can download it in the downloads section? You can also thank the people who reply with good feedback in the same way. It takes a second and it let's them know you appreciate that they took the time to check out your work

    7. Be a good forum member


    If you're a leecher or someone who starts fights or talks a lot of shit, typically people aren't going to want to check out your stuff. That's life

    8. Promote

    Promote your beat but don't spam it. Hang out in the shoutbox and talk with people, then let them know you have a beat and ask if they could check it out. This works out a lot better when people in the shoutbox know you better, and when people aren't deep into convos. You can also put the link to your beat thread in your signature. It can work sometimes to bring one or two people to your thread.


    _____

    That's all for now, but this may be further ammended and edited should other good guidelines come about. Remember these are just guidelines. You don't HAVE to follow them, but it's probably going to benefit you

    nice post a woods

    RedJack: It seems like there's not that much activity going on anymore, not like before when everyone was on at one time and it was all poppin cuz when 1 person logged off one or two people were just logging in. But i see your point. not too much is or has been going on lately.
    New beat tape "Project Cali" is available for download!

    yeah it seems the remix's/blends forum is taking off now.. where as before it was the homemade beats forum for a few months.. it'd be good if they were going at the same fast pace lol

    Its all good, but it seems that everyone has their buddies or favorites here too. So that dont really give the nujacks a chance for plays. They just get bumped to the bottom, whether you give feedback or not. I think im more popular on the remix page than the beat page. I know i aint been here that long, but I do know my beats & remixes are at least listenable.

    @Green, it really doesn't matter what it looks like if people want to listen and take time to give you feed then they will regardless. feed others and they will 7xs out of 10 feed you. Listen to theirs and they'll listen to yours. simple as that...some people though make hot beats this and that and get TONS of feed/listens but hardly EVER do the same for others. smh (i know who ya'll are and I won't bang your shit)

    This is good information.. I definitely agree with this. I have been producing and selling beats online for about two years now, and these are all proven facts right here. Thanks to you fam for giving up some good information.
