Some get highly upset as they want there profile to remain private and not in plain view of other people whom they have no true connections with. Instead it is a better practice to post to your own personal timeline and allow the person to see it through there timeline. Although there are better strategies to marketing through social media than just this. On Facebook search bar you can search for relevant posts to help you find someone who is actually looking for beats. All you have to do is type on the top search bar "Posts about I need beats" Or "Posts about I'm looking for beats". This will show you people who have posted this term right on there wall!

Throw Beats Sales For Rap Artists
I mean that goes without saying. Most artists don't want to pay an arm and a leg just for one beat. And whatever you do, Don't listen to those other producers who say your beats suck just because you sell them for cheap. This is there way of telling you they don't like you for selling cheaper than they are. In the music industry it is dog eat dog. You have to be on the top no matter what and thats the bottom line. And selling your beats cheaper will help increase your sales hands down. The guy who has top notch beats for $25 might only sell 1 beat a month if hes extremely lucky, but the guy with equivalent quality or mediocre beats who is selling them for $5 may sell 30 a month. It truly is all on how you reach out to your fans needs and demands. Expect artists to be struggling and expect that is the reason why they chose to be an artist because they want to make it big and not have to struggle anymore. So take this tip of advice and don't over price your Rap Instrumentals
Kill them with kindness
Share other artists work without you having to ask them. Give your honest opinion (or don't) its really up to you on that one. But one thing is for sure, no artist wants to hear negative feedback. Positive feedback and sharing of there music lets them know you support them. They may not even know who you are at the time. But be sure they will see your act of kindness and be curious as to who you are and check out your beats and be much more willing to buy from you and share your website for you as well all because you took the first initial step into creating a relation with your possible future clients.
