Is it worthwhile to get a professional soundclick page made?

Wanna start attempting to sell beats on soundclick and i'm wondering if it's worth it to pay someone to create a fancy page for me

Or just create a free page myself?

worth it if you want a little extra side cash, but I would recommend getting your own website built.

every professional, properly used promotional tool is a good thing.

Go for it, however find a good price that makes sense. Having a $500 design isnt worth it, if over a few months you dont have clients or make profit.

Getting your own website is important too. Its a seperate identity controller by you. You can have it built to integrate to your social network sites as well.

Sure, but having your own domain on your own website is even better. but if you already have that, then the soundclick page is just icing on the cake

Soundcloud has completely over shadowed soundclick in ALL aspects IMO. The layout is so neat

again why not both? Having a soundcloud doesn't disqualify or even hurt you from having a Soundclick lol.

True I have both as well. Soundcloud just seems to bring more customers and have a better user experience

i have soundcloud and i plan to do soundclick. from there i hope to bring customers/fans and use my site to feed off the new fans. joining a site with tons of people already on it helps instead of getting almost no one to your brand new site.

Create your own website, it's not as difficult, daunting or expensive as many people think.
Have an 'About Me' section, tell a story, be more than a beat in a typical and or boring layout.

By all means, link to your sound cloud account YouTube account, twitter even sound click and have them link back. Make it clear that the site is where you do business.

Be interesting..... soundcloud is a vanilla music hosting service that is about straight no frills music (and a bit of a circle jerk at times) but you can provide links in your profile to your website, twitter etc.

Sound click can be customized to the point were you're just another pretty soundclick page looking for that PayPal lease.

It's up to you and no one thing is going to guarantee success .... but I would rather have a well prepared, concise resume than thinking 'my music speaks for me" there are tens of thousands of brilliant and talented beat makers out there thinking the same thing. Never underestimate professionalism and where it can get you. It's one thing many people lack.

I say start with soundclick. Then use a zinsta player on your website. Using the zinsta player you can add tracks using a soundclick track id generating plays for soundclick while people are just listening on your site.

Good thinking. I can't say I'm one for having a cart on my website, but this is merely a personal preference and this could work for others. Zinsta looks well thought out.

Some good tips in here.

Like others have said, I'd try and exhaust every possible channel available to you whether it be your own Website, as well as SoundClick, SoundCloud, BandCamp etc.

Is it safe to assume before putting your music on here you get it copy written? I always hear a tag and people music which just identifies the producer but what are the measure everyone takes to secure thier beats?

Its called "copyrighted," and yes I think it's a good idea to register a copyright for your music.
