It is possible for them to do it, but I doubt they would be interested in doing it. And I wouldn’t be so quick to knock non exclusive libraries, I just found out about my first TV placement back in March and it was for a non exclusive track.November 16, 2019 at 2:42 pm in reply to: You must remove your songs from any medium.

In this case the label is the licensing company, and they collect the publishing royalties. And yes, an indie artist should seek out non-exclusive representation. If the tracks have already been published to Spotify and whatnot then someone is already collecting the publishing royalties.November 16, 2019 at 2:31 pm in reply to: You must remove your songs from any medium.

An exclusive deal means that the label or publisher is the first and only one to release the music (until the contract expires). Since you have already published your tracks to these other platforms, they aren’t eligible for such a contract. You’ll want to create some new music to give to them. Your artist music that has already been released can be used on non-exclusive sites.
They use youtube content ID, so it can cause problems for sites that don’t allow that. I uploaded my stuff on there a while back, and once I was done I was told that they use Content ID so I immediately removed them all.
Thanks for the info guys! I emailed ASCAP to see if there was a cue sheet or any more info. Surprisingly it was actually a non-exclusive track so I got the publishing and songwriter royalties! I do have the track on tunesat but it never picked it up, probably because I have the basic account.

Getty Images is a pretty high earner for me, once in a while I get a sale on Tunefruit.
They generally add the money together from all sales and split it with the composers based on how much each composer sold. I personally avoid subscription sites because I believe it devalues the composers, and seems like not a lot of money to be made.August 1, 2019 at 7:42 am in reply to: Any tips for me?

Usually I price stuff around $40 or $50. It also helps a lot to have the alternate edits of your tracks on there (stinger, loops, 30 sec edit, etc).July 31, 2019 at 5:24 pm in reply to: Any tips for me? Trying to get more income from licenses and stop selling music #32788
Join more RF sites and put all of your non-exclusive tracks on them. I’d recommend Pond5 and Getty Images, those are the most profitable sites for me so far.
