"It took a few years, but Wesley now makes a full-time salary from selling beats online. He’s not alone: what began as a cottage industry has exploded, with an entire cadre of music producers now making a healthy living from their beats. Wesley has sold more than 10,000 licences for the more than 160 beats he’s produced since 2013. In 2015 he made $30,000 (£23,250) from the beat-selling market. This year, he’ll reach something nearer $100,000. “That’s from the beats alone, just for my beats and services related to some beats,” he says."
"Robin Wesley is a prime example of a producer who has journeyed from trying to get his music heard, to the point where he is now running a viable business selling his beats online. Wesley is also one of several expert voices sharing detailed insights with other producers via the in-depth guides on his Urban Masterclass site."
Wesley, who co-founded Urban Masterclass to help advise beat makers, said many of his students have this same problem because they underestimate the importance of strong marketing. Spend equally enough time on becoming a better producer as you are in becoming a better marketer,” Wesley said. “Balance your time out and stay focused on both sides.”
"I had never bought music related information but I was looking for ways to save time and automate daily tasks to optimise my business. But the Constant Conversion Strategy gave me all the info, marketing tools and templates I needed to do that!"
"Constant Conversion Strategy had a huge impact on me! It gave me a proven system to implement into my marketing strategy (which was non-existent at the time). The downloadable templates and PDF files are also a big help when I want to look over notes."
"I just finished the course and it was amazing. Love the concise way of how you lay out complex subjects. I'm truly delighted and taking action as we speak."
