The 11 Essential Tips
Use Trustworthy Sites - This should go without saying but when it comes to spending your hard earned cash on a sick beat, you need to know it’s going to the right person.
Know Your Licenses –You have two options, you can either lease beats or get exclusive rights. Exclusive rights means nobody else will be able to use those beats but if you just lease it then you won’t own the beats at all. Different things work for different occasions so be smart.
Pay For The Right Thing –You might think you’re getting a bargain for exclusive rights but it turns out you’ve just bought some unlimited lease beats. You need to be careful when you’re sending that money over that you’re getting what you ask for.
Read Reviews! - The internet makes it easy to know if you can trust people these days. Check out reviews (not just things on the website in question) and you’ll know if you’ll get what you pay for.
Look for Bulk Deals –You might have found the perfect beats but have a quick look on the website to see if there are any bulk deals before you decide to buy, you might come across another little gem.
Sign Up to Mailing Lists for Discounts – If you find a producer you like then sign up to their mailing list and you might get news on the latest offers.
Professionally Mixed – If you’ve got big plans for these beats then they really do need to have the professional quality you rightly deserve.
Look for Third Party Symbols - Third party symbols such as Paypal will help with proving the legitimacy of the website.
Look for Producers with their Own Sites - If someone’s selling beats through Myspace then it doesn’t give the best impression. Good producers will always have their own site.
Give the Site a Quick Google – Google has a wealth of information at your fingertips so check out the website and see what other people have had to say. If you’re feeling uncertain then try adding scam after the search words and that should help clear up any worries for you.
Get Documentation – No matter what the transaction is you need to get proof of purchase. Without that you’ll looking at a dodgy website and you could end up with less than you paid out for.
