    Icon14 Get more beat placements with these 4 simple tips

    Here's some feedback I've had from artists which will help you get more placements from the beat placements that I share.

    1. Send MP3 files.
    Artists don't want to download a 40MB WAV file to find out the beat isn't for them. MP3 files are smaller and most email providers allow artists to stream the MP3 from the email.

    2. Send only a few beats.
    Pick your top 3 - 4 beats that fit the requirements of the beat request. If no requirements are specified; take a listen to the artist to hear the type of beats they've used previously.

    3. Keep the attachment size down.
    This combines both of the above suggestions. Try to keep the total size of the email under 18MB, this ensures that your beats will be attached to the email. If the email size is above that then artists will be sent a link which they'll need to sign in to listen to and download your beats, whilst some are prepared to do this there are also those that aren't.

    4. Include your contact information in the file name.
    This isn't just because we don't store your contact info (apart from your email address), it's because it makes it easy for artists to see who sent the beat if they've downloaded your beats to their iPod to listen to on the move.

    The downside to following the above tips is that it will reduce the number of notifications you get in your account, by following the above you will only be notified when artists read an email if they allow images to be loaded. You won't be notified when they download or stream your beats.

    I hope these have helped, reply and let me know if you've got any other tips to share
