    Hello,

    I have a friend who is very passionate about music, he owns a small studio which he funded by himself.
    So he is creating his own music and also rapping. (Have in mind idk much about music lol)

    He was asking me if there are some ways to make money online with music and how to do it and as
    stated above i am a noob when it comes to creating sounds (music :p).
    Thats why i am asking you for any kind of ideas/shares you have on your mind, please write it here :)

    Tnx for any help.

    I have seen a few sites out there where you can sell beats and loops. This may be your best option. Otherwise I am sure there are sites out there where you can post your music and let people buy individual songs...sort of like itunes. I know myspace music was doing it a while ago.

    There's a website called audiojungle (dot) net. People sell their music there and with a decent quality hiphop beats and rapping your friend could make some nice money :)

    Yes first can use beats and loops and also if he's good, he can do rap vocal loops. But has to be really good for this. Then he can go to major websites who sells that kind of stuff

    It's also vital to have good gear when recording rap vocals. People won't by samples that are filled with digital noise :)

    I used to do it...the music bizz is all about contacts or now a days viral stuff on youtube...if you go to soundclick, there are AMAZING artists selling beats for peanuts...

    Contacts: the top producers sell their stuff for thousands, get millions in royalties. Considering their time/price/equipment etc their stuff is not anything a 15 year old cant do on a laptop. But, they have contacts.

    Another way of getting noticed is youtube etc, but that is very saturated. I used to make beats, started off with a friend of mine. I went to school, he didnt. Right now, he produced a song for a commercial [game] starting BOB. He hustled real hard and helped artists out [gave em beats 4 free, but went with them to a rented out studio - got contacts that way]. Hes gonna make it big

    Another way to get noticed is doing remixes of popular songs...go to a club, get it played etc....

    IDK what kind of remixes the man do, he's a rapper...hard to make rmxs if you dont luv house culture. Anyways, can do soundtracks for commercials, local anthems...just have to think. Almost every biz needs custom music.

    I see a lot of folks on YouTube who have their own sites with paypal/ejunkie/cb links to sell their stuff. Same concept as infoproduct delivery.

    He should start working with Youtube. I don't know what he does, but this is one way that I don't see a lot:
    People can request some songs for him to cover (if he's covering songs) or use in a remix (if he is a DJ) by going to the website and signing up. He has their email so he can send some related stuff to them. If he makes his own songs as a DJ, PM me. I can give you a few valuable tips (don't worry, no charge :) ).
