@Music1234 I’m uploading to both Soundmouse and BMAT. With BMAT the uploads are free and it helps to ensure we are getting every penny from our PROs.
If possible will you please inform me of my IPI/CAE number & please e-mail it to me.
Login to your BMI account for that number.
I have been reading all the info provided on your website(s). there is so much to learn, I just really dont know where to start.
Join and register your songs with one of the Performing Rights Organization. (BMI, ASCAP or SESAC if you live in U.S.)
For distribution probably the easiest way is with CDBaby or TUNECORE (Do a Google search)
Your customer is not required to pay any royalties. The term “royalty free” is a misnomer. Most TV channels (but not all) and radio stations pay a yearly blanket license fee to the PROs. Depending on the time of day and channel/station you will be paid a royalty from that license fee by your PRO.
Our payment was decent enough and in line with what we expected. A little bit more than last quarter with International down but US up. A nice payment from the YES channel. Have never heard of them. Could live on it but would be a challenge. Still, a decent passive income.
A couple of oddities. Facebook, of all things, paid much higher for Internet Audio, around $45 compared to single pennies from the likes of Spotify. For Internet Audiovisual Netflix paid pretty good, about $400, mainly from Rust Valley Restorers. Mostly pennies for all the others.

Many libraries send out briefs. They will generally let you know or ask first.

I’ve thought about it when first starting years ago but decided against it. In that time we have licensed and placed music in numerous styles. I think it might be analogous to libraries specializing in one style. That seldom happens except for trailer music, at least that I am aware of. Keeping track of numerous artist’s name might complicate your workload.
Just my opinion though.
