BEAT100 allow users the exciting oppertunity to Chart both Music Videos and Music Tracks, using both Youtube and Soundcloud urls
Although the network has original, cover and Genre Charts available to view, the World Music Video or Music Audio Chart are the only charts that determines who wins the worldwide exposure and press releases each week. 

The World Music Charts Compiles Every 7 days on Monday at 12pm (GMT).
Every World Music Chart entry will get 4 full weeks in the chart (a minimum of 28 days). If you enter your video mid-week then the partial week is not counted towards your three weeks of chart duration. This means the maximum time a video will spend in the chart is 34 days.

Example 1: John enters his video on Monday Morning at 9am on 1st of July. The new chart starts at 12pm. His first full week finishes at 12pm on the 8th, the second on the 15th and his 4th and final week on the 29th in which his video is removed after spending 28 days in the chart.
Example 2: Jill enters her video on Tuesday evening at 10pm on the 1st of July. The new chart doesn't start until the following monday, so the first 6 days are not counted towards her chart duration. Jill completes her first full week on the 15th, her second on the 22nd and her forth and final week on the 5th of the following moth in where her video is removed after spending 34 days in the chart.
The Music Audio Charts Compiles Every 7 days on Friday at 12pm (GMT).
If a video or track has not received over 20 real votes (not including bonus votes), that video/track will be automatically removed after 20 days to keep the chart fresh and current for viewers and listeners. Remember be active, vote and share your own video/track daily.

BEAT100 members are able to vote for as many entrants as they wish and can vote every 24 hours on the same entry should they wish to. BEAT100 requires users to sign up before voting for a entrant in order to monitor cheating and calculate the votes effectively and accurately.

Once the Charts are compiled each week, all of the votes are verified. If a user is found to be cheating, they will immediately be excluded from the current chart competition and will have their account blocked. If two entrants end up having the same amount of votes, the outcome of the competition will then boil down to which entry gained the most views. The winning track or video, once verified, will head onto a section of the BEAT100 ‘Winners page’, where they will be exhibited for all users to check out.

Winning artists receive worldwide media releases. An email will be sent out to all BEAT100 members informing them of the winners every month.

The top three chart winners each week will not be able to re-enter the charts for one full month after their win.

Users may use BEAT100's premium promotional packages to promote their music chart videos or Music Audio Chart tracks and gain further exposure. To learn more about these packages, click here.
