(warning: *rant* this is raw and uncut...it's because i care)
i hear this alot....
this applies to u if you're broke
OR if u have a job u hate..
helping so many producers means i know the pain and struggles...
from gettin shot to bein broke...to being stuckin a job
to homeless to mentally out of it...
i've heard a lot of it...
and i want to help each one of u that tells me your story...
the reasons why you don't have money are long and wide....
but in order for me to help u...
we gotta get one thing clear.
it all starts with ur mind...
and not only that..
it starts with what you put INTO your mind...
many of the producers that come to me looking for help are suffering from a form of "insanity"
the definition of insanity is - taking the same action that doesn't work, hasn't worked and will not work and expecting a different result
what i mean is this...
if u make beats, that's dope..
but if you haven't ever sold a beat...
or sold a beat once this month...
or once this year...
BRO..that's not going to fuckin' work for u!
u need INCOME! Income is the outcome!
u want to take care of ur family so u gotta do something that works for you!
and I'm NOT talking about getting a Job necessarily.
i'm talking about Creating your OWN hustle
you are lucky AF cause fortunately it's never been easier than right now
and it has everything to do with the device you're reading this email on
you have access bro! no one has had this type of access before...
Unfortunately in this world we need money to do what we want to do..
have the life we want to have...
well peep game...
if beats ain't bringing u income just YET, then u gotta switch up UNTIL you find something that will work for u...
( until it starts poppin off, or until you learn how to make it pop off)
here's what i mean...
u might be dope at beats but you can't sell NOTHING
so how about doing what you are naturally good at?
can u learn how to DJ?
( when i was a DJ that was some of the most money i made in music at the time and I had placements already - that was before i learned this marketing shit )
bro at first i thought marketing was hella f'n corny
and i still do in a lot of ways,
but there's a lot underneath the surface...
a lot of genius in marketing and dope marketers are sharp af...
are you good at graphic design?
are you good at social media?
are u good at writing?
are u good at editing photos?
what are u best at besides beats?
- At Youtube Headquarters putting in work -
there's hella shit online that people will PAY you to do...RIGHT THIS SECOND!
Shock G my mentor told me, always have more than one hustle...
Google Shock G... he was 2pac's original producer...
if u need help opening a side business then get at me...
i've opened up businesses that went good
i've opened businesses that failed
i failed at doing beats for a LONG ASS TIME!
But i kept at it and i kept at it and i kept at it until now i'm making more doing beats than i've ever made ever
and as u know i'm busy AF so if u want my help,
i need u to be fully committed...
i get energy from helping those that run with my help and take it even further...
i can help you bro...
i can show u how to make beats and sell beats
i can ALSO show u how to bubble from a side business too...
you're an entrepreneur bro..
u gotta BUSINESS mind....
u make beats which is your product...
so u gotta sell it..
OR leverage your other talent in the meantime...
so tell me..what's your other best talent besides producing?
comment below to lemme know....
*Sorry for the rant...i get passionate about helpin' producers cause
i see we're struggling and i want EVERYBODY to come up...
cause i know you can.

I like yo’ article you hit it right on the head! I need help with marketing instrumentals aka beats, I’m struggling hard right now & need some help b4 I get into sum serious trouble so if some how u get this message please take time to view my website & my instagram account to get me started on selling my first beat!
Sounds good Tee! Thanks for reaching out.
We’ll definitely review what you have going on and tell you exactly why it’s not working.
It’s all about knowing bro and the more you learn, the more you earn.
One tip i can leave you with is make sure you have “yourself” on your site and IG.
What do i mean?
A lot of us producers forget to put our own face in our marketing.
We think that since artists want beats, that all we need to do is put up hot beats
and logos, but the truth is that humans connect with humans.
People have to see YOU, they’ll connect with YOU, not your beats.
I’ve helped this one producer in the game and just based on his personality and putting
himself out there, he amassed a huge following of artists just being himself and didn’t
post any music at all on his Instagram.
Once they get to you know YOU. The Real YOU. They’ll WANT to hear your music.
So then you won’t have to try and force it down anyone’s throat.
Hit me at Cras@Beatsites.net and I’ll get you going.

Cras I feel you bro and you right I don’t know where to start with selling my beats and I tend to think I have skills in writing how can you help me to get shit popping what do I have to do
Thanks for reaching out Eric!
You can do it bro. It’s ALL in the process and knowing what to do.
Hit me at Cras@Beatsites.net – we’ll get you going.
First thing to focus on, is your first 10 beat customers.
That’s all just 10.
Just your first 10.
I’ll let you know how to get them when you email me.
Thats real ? You got great insight!
My marketing and business skills and not good at all! I feel so stuck and it’s driving me insane! I don’t know where to start!
I also do music videos, graphic design and screen printing. I’ve done a little bit of art work for some local artists in my town. Build a few websites for small local clothing brands and collab with people from different states, like they will record vocals and send them to me and I’ll mix them down and shoot them back.
D.j, did that a while back.
Besides Beats, I drum, I can rap, I can draw and just and all around Artistic people. Besides that I’m a business man at heart; as I mentioned to you during our first conversation, I’m just looking for guidance and possibly that additional push to help me tap in.
