Pay For Promotion
You could always sign up to a website that already has a bunch of producers on it. The process will be streamlined so that it is easy for you to upload beats without having to create an entire website. Honestly, if you can build your own site, do it. These sites that already have producers on them are over populated and it can be hard to get exposure even if you pay for promotion. Hundreds of producers could be paying for promotion at any given time and there is no guarantee that you will be rated highly.
If you want to be a self-employed producer that makes a living selling beats online, the best thing you can do for yourself is to create your own website and spend the time and money promoting your own site. Take the time to invest in yourself and your future, the potential is limitless.
