    Cutting to the chase, I'm a hip-hop producer. I make beats basically.

    "Oh hip-hop is gay, Lil Wayne is gay blah blah blah."

    Let's juss focus on each other. I'm very new to this website and the things you people do here, but I'm a quick learner. What I really came for though, is the know-how I could use from you smart people. What I really need is a way to generate a bunch of views on my videos somehow. I see these amateur producers with 100's of thousands of views and I'm thinking to myself damn, that's a couple thousand bucks right their with the right program on YT. Anyway, I know there are some of you here who could help me out with this.

    I already know about websites you could pay to have bots view your videos, that stuff is dumb. I need a legit method to garnish a couple thousand views in a matter of days (from REAL people). Something with marketing? Something to get my videos searched a lot? I don't want to waste my time on YouTube posting videos only to get like, 200 views. I need EXPOSURE, basically. The more exposure the better. It's all confusing to me to be honest. The technical stuff makes my brain hurt. Of course, I would have to know what you're doing and I would be willing to share the payout with you. If you don't trust me, that's understandable. However, if you do. Let's make this work. Thank you for your time.

    The beat market is flooded now, so if your beats aren't great to begin with then it's really going to be hard to get any buzz. I wouldn't necessarily say that getting all them fake videos is "dumb", because when people go on YouTube and search for some beat that sounds like x-Rapper/Producer those fake views on your videos will rank your videos higher and most users will click on those videos with those thousands of views and if your beats are good you will get some sales. So again you got to make sure your product is already top notch if you want to make it in that market. I would type some more, but I'm tired haha I'll check this thread out tomorrow. Good luck.

    Hey bro I understand where you're coming from haha. There's a bunch of wannabe FL Studio noobs watching Lex Luger tutorial videos and trying to make beats. And I know you might think mine are wack or whatever, but if you would like a little sample of what they sound like. Go on YouTube and search Wonya Love, I'm God. Producing is like, to be honest what I live and breathe at this point. And it's not just a passion for me, I know I sound corny but I come from a bloodline of musicians and artists.

    Let's just say mine are super nice, or else I wouldn't be here tbh. I need someone with talent in the technical side of things to help me with exposure, and I really would be more than happy to share the money for said services. No one works for free right?. To anyone viewing this I would even go so far as to be willing to sign a contract with you regarding percents and money if that's what you need to earn my trust. Everyone starts somewhere right?

    Are the above posters the same person? Is this post simply to get people to youtube your song name? Do night owls spin their heads when no one is around? The world will never know...

    You should probably speak to BHW member indianbill .. And have him promote your videos on Facebook .. Or buy some of his software and do it yourself.

    Nothing worth doing is easy. OK, enough cheesy quotes. Find out how to go viral you say? That's what I'm asking lol. I have a few tricks up my sleeve, but not enough.

    Stop smoking the ganja. No, if I had half a million views on YouTube I wouldn't come to a forum with like 1,000 people just to get 1 person to view my song. Strong logic.

    You may want to make creative videos and market your beats on vine, easy to build traffic

    Pretty nice beat thekidwithstars. I too do some producing, nothing too serious just a hobby. I'm interested in what equipment/software you use because I'm thinking of getting a little more serious.

    On a serious note. A lot of your videos have 100s of thousands of views. I recall one of your videos having close to a million views if I'm not mistaken. If your goal is to get some of your videos viral it's just not going to happen. People aren't going to share a video of a beat like they would share a video of something funny. You get what I'm saying?

    Now, if you're trying to increase your view count that's a different story. Seems like you have a website set up already. Do you have social media accounts set-up? Social media is probably your best bet.

    EDIT: 1+ for vine. If you're as good as you say. Take some popular vines and make some beats with them. Post a snippet on Vine, post the full on youtube and let the traffic flow. Rinse and repeat. Slowly mix in original beats of yours.

    Watch who you're call a nerd around here. Many people from BHW are likely to get more women that the average man.

    6 second Videos with cool/crazy effects that have the bass drops of your beats. I see many people getting viral videos from stuff like that on vine. Especially with those water speaker videos lol

    Example.

    Think of something unique/creative cool like this was before everyone started doing it, automate a couple hundred/thousand profiles with your video revined and that'll help ya out.

    And at provision,

    Hmm I see what you're saying. The guy in that video is doing affiliate marketing too if I'm not mistaken. That's a good idea, that whole Vine thing is popping right now. The drones of this world have watched enough tell a vision to dumb down their attention spans to about 3.5 seconds. And people wonder where ADHD comes from... Take your Ritalin!

    What do you mean by automate profiles though?

    Haha I know this dude below going to keep thinking we're the same person but I've actually heard your stuff before and liked your stuff. Have you tried reaching out to rappers? Sending them beats? I'm not talking about big mainstream rappers who get hundreds of beats, but rappers who got potential to blow up?

    I can guarantee you we ain't the same poster and like he said why would he promote Hip Hop instrumentals on BHW? I doubt there's many rappers on here (if any haha).

    :cool:
