    What's the context? It's not an idiom - but it may well be a reference to 'step-by-step' in the context of something that beats, say a heart, or music.

    Actually, there is no context here, just a description of an internet resource:

    "PowerReporting.com: Thousands of free research resources for journalists, updated daily. Categories include people finders, search tools, email alerts, beat-by-beat, etc."

    Re: beat-by-beat

    I'd guess that there it means up-to-the-minute reports [possibly to do with popular music].
