Definite newbie question here.. I’ve been approached by a company that wants to promote my music by distributing it on their streaming service, promoting it, etc., and (more importantly) taking publishing rights on it.
I declined the offer, as it seems to me like it wouldn’t make sense to have to create what seems like ‘exclusive’ tracks, just for them, that I couldn’t place in libraries, which is my goal.
Now I’m second guessing myself.. is there any benefit to joining up with agencies like these? (Rehegoo Streaming Platform is the service I was contacted by).
Thanks in advance for any adviceDecember 15, 2017 at 11:41 am #29046
Hmmm. Sounds to me like “you trusted your gut and it doesn’t feel right”..
Plenty of Fish in this Sea. Does it feel to you a tad “desperate?” Sounds like it..
I have been passing on those too, with no regrets..December 17, 2017 at 6:08 am #29058
thanks for the reply Beatslinger, I feel sure it was the right decision now! Gotta watch out for all the leaches in the sea..January 10, 2018 at 2:35 am #29154
Hi, I work with Rehegoo. I saw that you were offered a contract! I got mine last year and after careful consideration I decided to go ahead. First I was worried about same things as you mentioned but it worked out great! The company is pretty cool and it helped me to get noticed. I managed to leave my day job and live from profits I made thanks to Rehegoo! I’m really grateful for the cooperation!
Shame you decided otherwise!
Good luck with your musicJanuary 11, 2018 at 4:20 pm #29185
Sounds like this should have been a Private Message. Looks like advertisement..February 24, 2018 at 8:11 am #29526
II have been contacted by a marketing person also. I Already have my music played all over the world on internet. But not making any money. If I could make money I could finish some well written songs that I think would sell. I do not want my music as a compilation. ALSO I believe you can choose non exclusive rights instead of exclusive. Need to find out about that .February 25, 2018 at 4:23 am #29528
One comment in this thread really does look disengenuos and fake. Similar to a paid Amazon review or something. I’m hoping that I’m wrong.February 27, 2018 at 1:25 am #29539
I’ve been working with Rehegoo for a while now and actually Roger is correct. You are able to choose non exclusive rights instead of exclusive. It’s been good, so far I can’t complain. I’ve released 2 singles with them and am working on a music video for one of my songs. It hasn’t been a long cooperation but I’m pretty happy. When it comes to questions about contracts, I think it’s best to speak to the person who e-mailed you, especially if you’re not sure what terms they’re offering you.February 27, 2018 at 7:56 am #29541
The fact is to stay in business Rehegoo needs to make money as most of us do after the money and time we spent creating our vibe. No one out there is doing anything to really make you money for free. Look at what they are saying up front and carefully look at the contract. Seem like they are fair. If in question contact your music attorney.February 28, 2018 at 9:27 am #29547
I would have to agree some of these comments sound disingenuous/fake. Not something I would want to be a part of, for sure!February 28, 2018 at 11:24 am #29548
I agree. I like forums that show “joined date” or “number of posts” alongside your username – helps us all filter out the obvious commercialism. I don’t want to cast aspersions towards someone who posted a lot in the past, or who has been a member for 8 years that I don’t know. But if you joined yesterday and have one post and you reek of infomercialism, well then, all bets are off. 🙂February 28, 2018 at 3:15 pm #29549
“Looks like advertisement..” Sure does.May 14, 2018 at 12:15 pm #30089
Yes, I was contacted too and went ahead and signed a non-exclusive deal. What’s wrong with having you music on compilation albums? NOTHING. Its exposure to an audience you might not otherwise have had. I want my music heard by as many people as possible. Is’nt that the goal of any artist? So they charge a percentage. well of course, they not going to work for you for nothing. Would you go perform for free? My songs are on two of their compilation alubms on Spotify etc. The more streams the merrier. Don’t let your “art” get in the way of your money!May 14, 2018 at 12:55 pm #30090
‘ I managed to leave my day job and live from profits I made thanks to Rehegoo!’
It’s true …… Just look me up ….May 23, 2018 at 3:56 pm #30152
well, if that were true, surely we’d all be streaming on REHEGOO instead of working our tails off. lol!
