Thanks for quick reply……nice to know someone else is getting same problem.
Ok I’ll wait to see if it hooks up again….and keep an eye on my bank account! in case it’s a phishing thing.
On the other tack….yes I’ve had some success with them. In fact I got a good library contact through them. But that was sometime ago.
I suppose at $12 per month and the occasional submission it’s not breaking the bank. But I’m very careful what I submit to…and only submit one or two tracks……if the add likes you they will check your url….if you have one…but I would never submit 10 tracks…..that’s over kill and a waste of money.
I used to submit to many of these subscription models but not any more. I think this is this last one for me.
If the site wakes up again I’ll let you know.
Sounds like scam too. “mother’s and father’s name; marital status/partners name” that’s all about identity theft.May 20, 2020 at 4:42 am in reply to: Thinking of licensing my own work directly from store front link to my url? #35047

Thanks for advice, the ‘heading’ for the google question is much better than the one I had!! I’m heading down that way.
I would be very wary these days of submitting to these libraries that want money,except maybe Film Music Mag. I’ve been with them a while now and have had some good hits in the past. Things are slowing now though. Reason? Too many conjectures as you see on these posts. I still think it’s about finding a library that works for you and having a personnel relationship with the owner over a number of years. Of course Pond5 is good and free but as we all know you have to have a vast quantity of music out there to get the hits. I used to have success with Hit License but that’s tailed off. As you can see from their ‘selected’ page they haven’t had a hit in ages. Honing your style can be important to. If you’re good or feel confident in a certain style it pays to work on that. The library and also the customers of that library will get to know you and ask you for more work like that. Anyway I think general rule stay away from libraries that want money up front. Good luck!!
Thanks Abby, I’m checking with sound exchange. Do I need to inform BMI. Or is this completely separate from PROs. Cheers. BobG
Cheers Art I’m checking them out.
I’m in Northern Virginia. making half a living at the library gig. Have deals in the US ,UK and Canada with various libraries. Enjoy the writing side although it can be frustrating sometimes. The business side I find ponderous. I think that’s where a lot of us fall flat. I don’t have an agent either. Hey but my wife always has good ideas!
