They Aren’t Just Instrumentals

Well if you read and followed the advice I gave in my last post, you probably haven’t stopped producing and that’s awesome ! But now you’re probably asking yourself “What am I going to do with all these beats?”.

Keep Calm and Play this I have a few suggestions

Make Cover Art

Creating cover art allows you to express your music, in a visual manner. It allows you to promote the beat without having people listen to it. If this sounds challenging don’t be worried, its actually pretty simple especially if you learned how to produce you can learn how to design. If the boy can decorate spaces you can too it you can too 

You can honestly keep it simple or random by using images from the internet or you can make your own using Photoshop or Illustrator.  Learning how to make Cover art allows you to gain a new skill and also empowers you as a producer because now you don’t have to wait on designers to make your cover art.

Create a Beat Tape

Waiting on Artists ? CUT THAT OUT,  you made a beat that sounds good, it doesn’t have to have vocals ! What makes you think others wouldn’t appreciate the beat on its own. You never know if you don’t try.  

It’s a lot less time to consume, to release beat tapes, all you need to do is to choose a couple of beats, slap a title, cover art, and some promotion and it’s a go! 

You can find countless of beat tapes on YouTub, a beat tape helps to get your work out there it improves your coverage. It also showcases the producer style in a more evident manner as opposed to having a beat with artists. Multiple producers have gotten successful by saturating their content all over the internet knxwldgeta-ku, Bds.u

Make a Music Video or Short Film

You can use your beat to make a music video or you can even also feature it in a short film. Most music video for beats at fun and animated or they can also be weird and unusual, you aren’t restricted. Check out this video

Connect your beat to a brand, music is a part of all our daily lives that’s why most brands have some sort of catchy jingle that usually gets stuck in our heads. Mc Donald’s, Universal, every sports tournament has an official song, you get the point. Your beat can be used as a key part of the marketing of a brand if it’s the right match for the company.

It may take a bit longer before you find a brand looking for beats because most brands don’t really request for that sort of thing but it doesn’t hurt to send some out to some of your favorite brands.


These are a few different things you could do with your beats without making songs, If you have any other ideas of what to do with your beats, please share in the comment section below.
