General Steps for Selling Beats

I have posted some of my instrumentals on Facebook and people really like them and have asked me to sell them to them. I am planning on doing this and will get them copyrighted, etc.

Now that I have established myself, Id like to make beats for artists and do so online. Im curious as to what the steps for selling beats online and being protected (i.e. keeping rights, collecting royalties/payment) Any help is greatly appreciated. I have a brother who can set up a business website (he is a computer scientist).

First let us hear samples of what you have done so far.

I used to do this on Soundclick. They’ve come pretty far since then and have even set up a licensing system exclusively for beat sellers.

Here is an example of listings page where you can see track pricing and the various license types. Check out the mp3 store FAQ for more info.
