dc.description.abstract BeatCred .net, or simply BeatCred, evolved from a problem I encountered as a music producer. I have spent endless hours producing my songs, but I have only a handful of people to listen. On my own, it was difficult to discern between high quality songs and ones that just sounded good to me. I was constantly seeking constructive criticism, but opinions from friends and family were usually generic or unconstructive. I registered for many music websites and forums with disappointing results. This lack of insightful listeners spawned the idea to create a website specifically catering to feedback, rating, and criticism in the electronic music community. BeatCred allows users to upload and share songs as well as rate and comment on each other's work. I discuss and explain the development of BeatCred from early stages through plans for the future. I explain some of the technical aspects of this site as well as its issues from a business standpoint. Lastly, I reflect on the challenges, rewards and lessons learned through this experience.
