Big milestone: my latest international distribution was greater than the sum of all my domestic statements last year. Thanks to all the seasoned composers here for a treasure trove of great info!August 12, 2019 at 1:40 pm #32839
Good to hear! I did okay, even took in a fair amount on the publishing side.August 12, 2019 at 2:13 pm #32840
Nice! I’ve got next to nothing on the publishing side. Waiting for some of these RF licenses to generate cue sheets. Hopefully soon!August 12, 2019 at 5:18 pm #32841
congratz, question…how long did it take til you saw intl royalties trickle in, coming up to 2 yrs here and still no signs of intl presence yet with bmi (per my intl pubs)…tyAugust 12, 2019 at 5:24 pm #32842
Over 2 yrs for me on the intl side….and then a “slow” build, until year 4. (I’m like 4(ish) yrs in at this point).August 13, 2019 at 7:41 am #32848
This is portion of the industry is slow.
Knowing what I know now. The best things you can:
1) Do not sit around and wait, counting money you “think you should get”.
2) Do not count on this to save your life!
Get those thoughts out of your head, keep grinding, and shoot for The Top Tier!!August 13, 2019 at 7:14 pm #32856
I agree with you beatslinger, as a popular saying goes “write, submit, forget, repeat”. but i do believe one of the treasures of this community is the sharing of experiences from seasoned members, not as a rule, but a barometer in order to adjust & evaluate every facet of the process moving forward. i’ve removed the money aspect of this industry long time ago since it is a hindrance, but the insight gained from others who are open to share real experiences is what makes being a member here worth the price of admission
