    I was wondering how would you go about it. Most people try and sell cheap beats with a non exclusive lisence so they sell the same tracks over and over again. Some people sell as low as 9 bucks but get a lot of those, and of course, everything has to be automated, that's the way to go... so I was wondering how to go about it. Maybe you buy it with a paypal link and that gives you a download of the complete track, i'm not sure about this.

    Of course i have to get my SEO right and everything. But I was wondering about the selling part and how would you go about it.
    Thanks!!

    I'm on the same boat. Hoping for some good replies here. Someone told me CD Baby was the best way to go about it.

    I've been researching and found out most people don't even use wordpress, most sites had a lot in common such as the same audio players and the way they r arranged... Hop someone with experience in the field can help us out.

    Have been thinking about doing something similar but for the unsigned indie bands niche as I have a great domain. Knowing how to go about it would be great and or maybe getting the right person on board is always another option.

    Bookmarked.

    Do a Google search for "Royalty Free Background Music",
    and check out some of the sites that show up in the
    SERP's (search engine results pages).

    If you see a good quality site that is selling tracks, then
    "reverse engineer" their site, or "model" (not copy, but
    model) what they are doing.

    Or you could just hire a programmer. This is something that could easily be done with PayPal and their IPN script to automate all of the payments, etc.
