How much money can you make selling beats online

The last ten years has seen a huge shift in the way people consumer music. This has led to a change in how everyone in the industry generates revenue. Is it possible for an unsigned artist or producer to make money in 2020?

As with all creative avenues, you shouldn’t be making music to make a profit. You should be making music because you love making music. If you’re not doing it for the love of it, this will be instantly obvious to your audience. If you’re making good, original content, the audience will come and profit will follow.

By no means is it easy, but it is possible to make a living from your music online. See this example from Chris Punsalan on how he made a living from producing a high volume of quality content with a loyal audience supporting him.
