Ok I understand your concerns, but im not talking about forcing. You know where most websites you sell something, there is a minimum? Alls im saying is that we have something a bit more respectable. Something we all agree on as producers. That way a rapper doesn't have that many choices for anything less than our minimum because whoever is apart of Airbit or Beatstars or any beat community, we all work together to get paid what we deserve. Just like writers / actors / and film makers do.
I understand the fear of losing business, but think of it this way as an example. Johnny Depp might not be good for a certain action flick, and he even bids lower salary, but the director will go for Brad Pit or Will Smith as they fit better for the action flick. That was totally hypothetical but thats how I would see it pan out. I know a ton of artists who wont buy a 10 dollar beat because even though it's good, it's not their style or what they're looking for. Without airbit or beatstars, most of these kids would have to hire a web designer or another means to get another webplayer to embed on their website that automates beats. Airbit / Beatstars / Etc. have the power to atleast bring the whole beat community together and set a standard operating procedure. Wouldn't you like to feel comfortable charging 100 for a lease, and not have to think well so and so is charging 20 for a lease, "could that be the reason why he sells more?" Maybe...maybe not. Maybe he just has loyal clients. But at least it's a question that will not impose itself and play a factor in your pricing decisions, knowing that we all respect each other enough to charge at least the set standard.
Sorry for the long explanation, I feel like alot of people are scared to take that first step and raising their prices, because of fear they'll lose customers. But are you going to keep selling leases at 20 when you made platinum hits? We got to start somewhere.
