PRODUCERS – DON’T BUY HOOKS FROM ALICIA RENEE! – IT’S A SCAM!

 

PRODUCERS – DON’T WASTE YOUR MONEY!

I think a lot of you should now Alicia Renee, she is the female singer who made the most hooks on producers beats. Just skip arround the soundclick charts and you will find some of her hooks for sure. Thats why I wrote her to get some hooks and bridges on 3 of my beats.
After we found a deal after some written emails I got my first surprise. She tried to take more money as discussed. I got an higher paypal money request as she told me before. She told me this would be normal cause she have to pay the paypal fees…so what?? I would never try to push the price cause of the paypal fees…I wrote a couple of emails again until she agreed to send me a new paypal money request with the first price.

Just for example: If I would make a custom beat for $399 I NEVER would send a paypal money request about $449 or more cause of the paypal fees…thats just money-grubbing and unprofessional…
…however.

I made my payment for the 3 hooks and bridges. I paid a couple of houndred dollars in Juni 2014 and wait some weeks until i got my files. I told her before i made my order that I need the hooks and bridges in one line that I just have to put them under my beats and mixing them. I need them in the same sound quality like in her previews. Then I was just shocked.

I got over 60! seperate trackout-files for 1 hook + 1 bridge. So it makes more than 180 seperate trackouts for 3 hooks!

The folder also includes files which never was in the preview. Failed tries to sing, different melodies and other lyrics. The most lines was cuttet every 2-3 words. I wrote her that I told it before I paid that I need the trackouts in one line and not in more than 180 unprofessional cuttet files. She told me that she don’t understand my problem. I should search for an sound engineer who can cut all these files into one. But this was not our deal! I wrote her again and again. After some emails I have run out of patience. I don’t wanted to wait longer and made her an offer to send an extra payment just to get the files like they sounds in her previews which I allready got. Normally I should get this files with my first order without sending an extra payment. She agreed, took the money from my extra payment and send me NOTHING! So she scammed me and has stolen my money. I waited over 2,5 month now before I start to write this blog about her. Its absolut unbelievable how she just can give a shit about this. She just told me that I should´nt write her emails on “a daily basis” and unfriendly stuff like this….I wrote here maybe all 1-2 weeks again after I got no answere. If a person telling you that you will got all requested files within 24 hours, I think its more than okay to send an emails after 1 weeks is gone and you got nothing…or??

At last she told me that she send me this new trackouts twice but this is not true! Its just a cheeky lie!!

I asked her a couple of times just to resend this files to another email adress. But she refused this for any reason. I asked her to give my my money back, she refused it. At last I asked her just to give me my extra payment back which I´ve send for the new trackouts, she stopped to answere anymore.

So let’s see what you got if you decide to deal with Alicia Renee:

Thats my experience:

– She tried to push the price after we allready had a deal because of paypal fees
– She took extra money for the trackouts which I should got with the first deal
– After more than 2 month I didnt got the extra paid files and she denied to send them
– Very unfriendly service
– She had stolen my money and don’t give a shit about it

 

That one of the previews I´ve got (sounds pretty good):

 

 

And thats are two lines from the first trackouts I´ve got:


 

Sounds really different, or? And I got over 180 of this strange trackout files.

So now its up to you if you would like to throw your money out of the window or not…

Where To Sell Beats?! Get People To Buy Beats Online

Where to find the most people who wanna buy rap beats?

There are so many platforms to sell beats. All over the web are beat sites where everybody can buy and sell beats. There are uncountable beatsites all over the web. Some of them are bigger and a long time in the game and some of them are newer and much smaller.

But whats the best way to sell your beats?

The main platforms are: www.soundclick.com, www.beatstars.com, www.rocbattle.com, www.beatbrokerz.com, www.musiccentro.com.

But there are also a lot of smaller and less popular platforms. Just to give some examples of the smaller homepages to sell beats are: www.mybeatshop.com, www.beats1.com, BeatsLab.com – Buy and Sell High Quality Beats!, www.coldbeats.com and many many more…

The question is if its better to float with the current and try to sell beats on the main and most popular beat platforms or should you try to sell your beats on smaller and less popular beat platforms?

My experience is if you have high end sounding beats you could have a lt of beat sales on the bigger and more popular beat platforms. Mostly you have to spend money into promotion on these websites but if you have a good amount of radio ready beats it really can pays out. But if you at the beginning of making and sell beats you can have some trouble to get a good amount of beat sales. You have a lot of competitive pressure from other quality producers. Your beats will be next to thousand of other rap beats for sale. You could have some problems to get enough people who wanna lease beats from your producer profile.

If you try to sell your beats on smaller beat selling platforms you have less competition and more visibility without buying expensive beat promotion. You wont have a lot of sales that you can quit your job but you could earn some money if you sell your beats on a couple of smaller beat selling platforms at the same time. A lot of people want to buy exclusive beats for less on this smaller beat selling pages. You could try to make a lot of beats and sell exclusive rights for cheap. If you would like to sell non-exclusive beats you should sell them for low ($1-$10). If you want want to offer your hip hop beats for sale in a normal leasing price range ($10-$50) you should try to get people buying your beats on the bigger beat platforms.

Its up to you to decide whats the better way for you to sell your beats.
I just can share my experience with big and small beat selling platforms.

But never forget that the best way to sell your beats is running your own producer homepage where only your beats are for sale. You always should have the full control o your business. You can get big trouble if you only sell your beats on public beat selling platforms. They could deactivate or delete your producer page if they are in the meaning that you did something wrong. They also can change the terms of use at any time. For example changing the monthly fees or the beat selling commission. I just use some beat selling platforms as an additional way to offer my beats for sale. I get much more beat sales on my own homepage than on all other beat platforms together! I think its important to have your own producer homepage as an serious beat producer or rapper/artist.
