Granting a licence for the use of your music to media outlets is a great way to generate significant revenue and help give your career a boost.

Films, TV shows, video games and advertisement agencies are always looking for new music to use throughout their content.

They need the perfect tune to set the mood for their piece, and since buying songs from famous pop stars like Katy Perry or Lady Gaga would cost a fortune, it’s often a far better idea for them to reach out to indie or even DIY artists and to small indie labels in the search for the music they need.


Contrary to what you might think, a LOT of music used in major movies, TV shows and commercials comes from musicians you’ve never heard of – and those fees and that bit of recognition can make a whole heap of difference to their career.

Licensing your music and selling it to interested parties takes a lot of work and a ton of small details. Luckily, if you put in the effort and have something truly original to offer, it will all pay off for you in the long run. Here we’ll guide you through the basics of music licensing and show you how to build a strong prospect list of music supervisors to go through when you’re ready to begin marketing.

Although you can easily promote your music on Reddit, Facebook, Twitter and other social platforms, featuring your content on a notable media outlet will not only immensely help your brand, but also help earn you some extra cash as well.
