producer it can be hard to make a full-time
living off a music alone if it’s not your full-time job so I want to
encourage all you music creators to focus on creating multiple streams of
income you want to think of yourself as a business you don’t want to depend on
one thing for all of your income like I know some music producers only one focus
on selling beats but there are so many other ways to make money from music that
you’re missing out on make an additional income so if you’re trying to make a
full-time living off of music you should be striving to make money through music
production selling products offering services promoting affiliate programs in
any other method you could think of because when you have multiple sources
of income coming in they all add up to that full-time salary that you’re
striving for before I get into the list of product ideas I want to tell you why
digital products are great and why I think you’re in a great position if
you’re a music producer once you create a digital product it’s something that
could be sold over and over again it can be downloaded instantly to anyone around
the world 24 hours a day so when you invest time it’s a crane a digital
product you may not have a product that can make money for months or even years
at very little cost to you and when you have enough of these products with the
right marketing and the right website traffic it can help you reach your
financial goals so let’s get into the list of product ideas product number one
is beats you may not look at beats as a digital product but if you’re a music
producer you can create a new beat and post it online the same day to sell you
can make money selling beats exclusively or lease them to multiple music artists
there are pros and cons to both of these licensed options but either way it’s a
product that can be sold online and download it instantly to anyone around
the world but I want to tell you why I think you’re in a great position if you
make music and how I look at bisa is a digital product there are tons of people
who spend months or even years creating one digital product to sell online but
you as a music producer you can create a new beat in a short timeframe and post
it online to lease it to multiple music artists think about that there are
people who spend months writing a book to sell for $9.99 you as a music
producer you created a new beat today posted online and lease it for $19.99 as
a music producer you can create be for whatever’s training at the time so if
you’re a skilled music producer you can create these as a digital product and
set it online and once you create a new beat find creative ways to promote it on
social media and promote it to your email list product number two is
drum kits if you can make your music for a while you may have created your own
custom drum sounds you could package those up and sell them to other music
producers like yourself people are always looking for high quality samples
to add to their music making collection but I will say there are already tons of
websites that are selling drum kits in so many places we could download free
drum samples for free so I don’t expect that you’re gonna really make a killing
off the son drum kits but if you build a name and reputation for yourself you
could get people to pay for your sounds music producers like Boy Wonder
ill mine and DJ Payne 1 have all built names for theirselves
so when they release a drum kit people really want their sounds so if you know
how to create some unique drum sounds you could package those up and sell them
to other music producers the product number 3 is background music background
music is very similar to beats but it’s a different product and a different
audience to market tuned background music could be used in online
videos for YouTube movies video games events in so many other places I want to
give you a real world example if you visit audiojungle comm check the music
category and check the top-selling music you can find inspirational tracks with
over 15,000 sales that cost about $20 each think about that 15,000 sales times
$20 is $300,000 for one track so there’s a huge market for background music
because it could be used anywhere there are websites that are just dedicated to
selling background music for videos podcasts and whatever else you could
think of so if you want to send them background music maybe something to
consider in fact I have a question are you selling background music if not is
this something that you’re considering let me know in the comment section below
the product number four is sample packs just like custom drum samples there are
people who are wanting to pay for quality samples like horns pianos
synthesizers and more here’s an example the music producer ill mine who produce
for J Cole Drake 50 cent and more created a sample
pack called 808 and string breaks which has string samples so if you know how to
create custom samples is something that you could package up and so online to
others product number five is software presets there’s a huge market for audio
presets for programs like contact nexus vanguard and more so you have a good ear
for sound design you can create unique software presets and offer them online
as a product product number six is instrumental albums if you’re a music
producer you can put together a collection of your best beats to create
an instrumental album to sell I commonly see instrumental albums from EDM music
producers but you can find instrumental albums in all music genres here’s an
example the producer overwork has released multiple
instrumental albums of electronic music to promote those albums he usually
creates very visually appealing videos for YouTube to promote the album so you
can put together a collection of your best instrumentals and put them online
as an album to sell product number seven is video courses if you have a lot of
knowledge on specific topics you can package that information up into a
helpful video course a popular website for video course is a skill share we can
find courses on how to use specific software be making tips music theory and
more you can create a video course and share helpful information to make money
you can sell a video course as a one-time fee or create a website with
multiple video courses and generate recurring revenue product number 8 is
ebooks just like video courses if you have helpful information to share you
could package that up into a book to sell research amazon.com you can find
tons of books related to music production you can find tons of books on
building successful music habits how to succeed in the music industry
music beginner basics and so much more and I know some of you may feel like you
can’t write a book and you’re like what are you talking about and this is where
I want you to look at yourself as a business because maybe you need to
invest in hiring help to create something I think it’s important to
understand that sometimes we can’t do everything ourselves and sometimes we
need to hire help to create the things that we want to create so don’t let
something being hard stop you from creating something great sometimes we
need to hire help to help reach our goals product number nine is a
membership website so I’m not referring to any one specific product here but you
need the products I mentioned earlier can be offered on a membership website a
membership website is a great way to bring in consistent monthly income for
example you can create a membership website where people can download a
limited amount of beats and samples for a monthly fee I’ve seen multiple be
selling websites where they offer a membership around $25 and you can
download two or more at least beats per month so you can offer multiple digital
goods on a membership website to help generate a monthly income so those are 9
digital prices can offer online sell but I have three bonus tips you should
follow to create your first product to avoid some mistakes I’ve made
tip number 1 do product research in advance there’s nothing worse to spend
in weeks months or even years creating a product to find out that nobody wants it
and nobody’s gonna pay for it so to avoid this problem do private research
in advance so what you need to do is search the web for examples for the type
of product that you’re thinking about creating you want to make sure there’s a
demand for it and that people are looking for it if you can’t find
anything similar to what you’re thinking about creating that may not be a good
thing because that means people may not be looking for it and they may not
for it you want to help look for things that will validate your idea so you can
find a similar product you want to look at the product reviews see if there’s
any sales numbers you can see look at the internet search volume and check
online forums for discussions on the type of product that you’re thinking
about creating what you want to do you just want to look for helpful
information to help validate your idea tip number two get feedback from
potential customers if you’re trying to sell something to a specific audience
it’s best to get feedback from potential customers and not just make assumptions
of what you think they want you should reach out to potential customers to get
their feedback on product ideas find out their needs and see what it would take
for them to become a paying customer I have personally thought at a number of
business ideas and where I finally had some success with the product was when I
put together a group of my target audience I got about five music
producers together and I would ask them questions I would take their feedback
and I would apply to the product and once I made a revision I was shared with
them to get their feedback again so we’ll go back and forth to try to make
the product better I had a lot of my own assumptions but when I was discussing
these things with these people they gave me a lot of things I did not think about
in the first place so it’s best to communicate with your target audience to
better understand their needs so when you’re trying to sell something to our
audience try to not go off our assumptions and try to use feedback for
your potential audience to help improve whatever product ideas you have tip
number three get into the habit of testing which means test out different
ideas to see what works and what doesn’t some of the products I mentioned earlier
can make you money or they may not make you money but you really don’t know what
to start testing there are some people who are doing extremely well on some of
the fire side I mentioned earlier but they got there by testing I’m sure their
first attempts didn’t go well but they learn from the previous mistakes and
they got better it’s all about trial and error and on the topic of testing as an
entrepreneur you never really want to make assumptions you want to test ideas
out so when it comes to selling a product you want to test our pricing
test our product names test our images test out how you promote it on social
media some things will work and some things won’t and as an entrepreneur
you’re gonna fail your way to success your first attempt at selling a product
will not probably be the best but your second attempt and your third term will
do much better than the first amazon.com which is one of the biggest online
stores have been known to run thousands of tests they’re changing their budding
colors their text their layout their images they’re testing all these things
to help people want to buy more so just know that your first assumptions will
probably not be right and you want to test all different ideas to see what
works and what doesn’t so those are three tips that I hope that you’ll
follow to create your first product there are so many aspects involved when
it comes to create a successful product so get
into the habit of testing different ideas to see what actually works so once
again I want to encourage all you music creators to focus on creating multiple
sources of income look at yourself as a business or entrepreneur you never want
to depend on one source for all of your income study your favorite music
producers because a lot of them have businesses and projects outside of
selling beats by you making money through selling products offering
services selling beats it can all help you reach your financial goals so I want
to encourage all of you to create an online store with your beats and
products to help you make the money that you’re striving for you can find helpful
links in the video description so I hope that this video has encouraged you to
create your first product I want to encourage all of you to create things
that will help secure the future that you’re striving for it so I have a
question for the day what products are you thinking about selling and what part
is that I mix on this list let me know in the comment section below
