    Hi guys
    some days ago i met a guy who is really a beast in beatboxing. Now, as i have all the necessary equipment, i offered to record him and put a video on Youtube, since beatbox is a great niche in there, and he agreed. I want to get the best (money) out of this talent, could you guys suggest me something more than youtube views?
    I was thinkin about some paid beatbox courses but i need some more ideas.

    I'm sorry if my english sounds bad but its not my language.

    Thank you, :)

    Affiliate stuff, promote the equipment and so on.

    Also, I was hoping you were trying to monetize a stripper, not a beatboxer.

    Yeah promote sound equipment etc. Create a website, maybe a blog that people can subscribe too. The opportunity's are endless for someone with a talent that's popular

    Send his beats to distributors or places like Spotify and Pandora so you can get a cut for each stream. People will listen to a particular song and get recommended tracks over time and one your friend makes will end up popping up.

    If people like them and are as good as you claim they will increase in demand, resulting in an increase in both of your pocket books.
