I’ve only been at this a few years and reality TV is definitely my bread and butter.
All it shows is 1 next to each episode of the 7 shows… so I assume it only means 7 times. Which does seem odd for streaming. All my others showed thousands of streams. The shows were one Ink Master and the rest Save Our Shelter.
That’s not bad!! I don’t do much sales anymore with RF libraries except Pond5. Not sure why….
Most came from MIBE, a few from Back End Music.
Interesting and kind of sad…
My highest streaming show on Hulu was 118,707 on a Cold Case Files episode paying $2.35. But that was also with a cue 2.35s long.
With Amazon it was an episode of MTV’s Real World with 16,893 streaming paying only $0.56. That cue was 37s.
My best payout this statement was from 41 episodes on Big Ten Network (sports): $123
Wow!! Yeah, I was surprised Netflix did that well. I made $21 with Hulu… but can’t even begin to count the number of streams….
BTW, I’m noticing more and more non-exclusive libraries going exclusive. I’ve had a couple switch recently…. even one this week that in the past swore against non-exclusive!June 3, 2019 at 9:19 am in reply to: How important do you think it is to offer alternate versions in RF libraries? #32353
I do alternates but kind of quit focusing on RF libraries. Most haven’t earned a dime in years. But just last week I got 5 sales in one day on Pond5.
Kind of what I figured. I also spotted a cue sheet (same show) with my name listed incorrectly as one of the publishers on a cue used.
Had my best quarter yet! A couple of higher paying foreign placements on Finland TV! My largest payout came from uses on Bravo!!
BTW, I’ve noticed that I’m getting a little better payout lately… most times, but not always, it’s a penny per stream now. Wasn’t like that a year ago.
BTW, I’ve had music on Spotify for several years now and have made a total of $165 via CD Baby plus a few dollars via my PRO. I am seeing it slowly increase but doubt I will be able to buy my new Ferrari with the earnings anytime soon!
Great idea! Always wondered how to boost followers or get on more popular playlists. Do you want us to post our Spotify links here?
I get royalties each quarter through CD Baby from them. Last time it was a whopping $4.09!!
