    Hi guys,

    First let me say that I have been in the beat making game for about 10+ years just as a profitable hobby. I've sold a fair share, but my main income from this hobby was always from giving away beats for free while making money from Adsense. I ranked #1 for "free beats" and hundreds of other long tail keywords for years and made around $1,000 per month from adsense and a couple other methods of monetization. I got absolutely obliterated by Penguin 2.0 and never did recover. It's sad because my website actually is the most legitimate website where you can get high quality, professional beats that are able to be used for commercial (profitable) purposes. Music was always a solid backup plan that I could fall back on if my main sources of income failed, so it was a sad day when all that was taken away.

    Anyway, I plan to launch a new site within the next month or 2 where I plan to go the traditional route of selling beats. I am wondering if anyone has any ideas for advertising a site like this. So far my only idea is to purchase banner advertising on websites that I think have a good targeted audience... but even that is a little hard to find.

    So, if you have any other ideas, or even know of some good sites to advertise on, I would love to hear it. Thanks!

    A friend of mine, is doing the same like you.
    Maybe you heard from him, Tunna Beatz.
    I dont know how and if he ranks google.
    But the easiest way to get traffic for you is Youtube.
    He is working with youtube, making money from adsense.
    Throug his videos he sends traffic to his website wehre he sells beats.

    When you are 10 years in the game, you should know
    some people which could help you promoting your site.

    Getting adspace on websites in your niche should be
    easy with adwords. Make cool banners, and choose
    ad placements on adwords, that means that you could choose the site
    where your ads should be shown.

    I found using putting up a YouTube video and then having a blogpost and your website link in the description works well. Same in the blogpost, include the video link and the website link. Then you have a circle going.
