Selling your tracks to artists is one thing, but you shouldn’t forget about other producers who are also looking to purchase unique creations. A Sound Kit is a collection of sounds intended for producers to use to produce music. These sounds come in a variety of forms, and many musicians use sample packs as the foundation for their tracks. Sound Kits can include a number of different sounds, ranging from a flute melody to different vocals and sayings. A lot of creators are looking to diversify their tracks with different instruments and sounds to take their track to the next level. Offering Sound Kits with your BeatStars Marketplace or Pro Page Plan can help with demand.
Selling personalized, unique merchandise is a HUGE revenue maker for producers and artists. In fact, according to a 2019 survey, artists made roughly 30% of their revenue from merchandise alone. Of course, that was when tours and live shows were still bustling and well. On the contrary, you can keep that statistic alive on BeatStars by selling an assortment of merchandise, from sweatshirts to socks, through our Printful integration. Simply integrate Printful with your BeatStars account, upload your merch designs, and start marketing your merch with every track or album drop.
A drum loop is a short recording of multiple drum materials that’s been edited to loop smoothly and continuously. A drum loop repeats until an exact duration is satisfied, for example, to break a single loop to another, you might want to use a drum fill which could also be a seamless loop. Drums are the beating heart of a solid song, and offering a variety of drum loops to your customers can easily result in an increase in revenue.
