You do that directly with the library, for free. Check this link out. I do too! I assume TuneCore is just straight distribution and not their publishing, which would be redundant with Songtrust. Hi Brian, It may seem trivial, but it is largely a vanity company after all … I’d like it to remain associated with my works! I wrote an article comparing Audiam and AdRev awhile back, and concluded the pennies aren’t worth the hassle. Overall it’s been a really frustrating time with Songtrust, I do not ‘trust’ Songtrust and would warn musicians to make 100% sure they are getting the royalties they are due as my experience of them is poor customer services and very poor royalty collection. The breakdown is in the article. #peace. like most of already do. You need a publishing administrator like Songtrust to collect it.

Personally, I’d rather pay once and be done with it. Would you be able to help me out with this? Two forward one back it was for a bit, trying to get the ball rolling. That’s quite an undertaking you’ve got going there! I highly recommend reading The Song Machine if you haven’t already: I’m a songwriter and artist, and have recently set up my own corporation as publisher/label so that I can manage other artist as well as myself in the future. SongTrust vs ASCAP/BMI/SESAC Can someone please explain what is difference of using a resource like Songtrust vs Direct registration with the P.R.O.'s. And definitely sign up for SoundExchange ASAP! At least not right now. Cd Baby is a hero to many members but as far as I’m concerned I’m working closely with countless verifiable documents taken from CD Baby’s own emails spread out on a large desk in full view of another kind of PRO. Hi, Brian. I am Non-US and i am wondering (1)if I can register with BMI Publishing then with Songtrust for Publishing also. And lastly, If i were to sign with SongTrust, is it possible to receive royalties via direct bank deposits/VISA from Africa? Songtrust use a payment company called payoneer to handle payments, and charge 2% for transferring into a GBP UK account from America! Their coverage overlaps. I never got to be good at “social-media”. But, the PROs don’t collect mechanical royalties, only performance. After cdbaby having probably 3 owners since I joined, I haven’t received on iTunes a payment that represents a “sale” as compared to “streaming”. If you make your own original music as an independent artist, songwriter, producer, composer, or lyricist, there are more opportunities than ever to earn significant income from music publishing.. Am I correct in understanding that TuneCore and CDBabyPro both digitally distribute your music (ie: putting it on iTunes, Spotify, etc) as well as collect international royalties, while Songtrust only collects the international royalties but leaves distributing the music up to the artist? I appreciate any answers at all! My understanding is Songtrust tracks a writer’s registered songs on all streaming platforms and sales (foreign and domestic). Feel free to reach out at [email protected]. The next year they changed their pricing structure to the current $100 plus 15% commission. Seems like a win/win situation for Songtrust. I’m trying to decide between the norwegian based and Distrokid. I think unless you go out of your way to contact them they don’t care, they never sent me anything or have followed even one time. A little odd to me. I don’t believe Songtrust revealed that to me. As far as I know, CD Baby doesn’t allow you to set iTunes pricing at $1.29. So what they are telling me is that after over a year and a half with them and several queries about this, they never bothered to check to make sure if my music was properly registered with HFA. I hoped maybe Songtrust would dig some of that up. Obviously it was the right call for me. Also, thanks for making this the article that has helped so many (and continues to help so many!). How will I know I’m collecting the royalties that I deserve? Not quite obviously, but as a quick example: You earn £10. The amount of time it would take to do that would be a full time job which is why publishing administrators exist. In 2009 CD Baby was sold and never recovered from their original innocence. If I already have a PRO ASCAP both for Writer Share and my own Publishing (ASCAP) (which I register all songs myself), Distrokid, and SoundExchange–why would I need something like SongTrust? Songtrust will handle the PRO stuff for you if you choose, but I handle SoundExchange directly. Does anybody have information on kobalt or any experiences with them? Feel free to advocate on my behalf. As far as I know, ASCAP and BMI don’t have similar offerings, so from where I’m standing, Songtrust is indeed the go-to. Your email address will not be published. Tunecore deezer for the codebase and to spotify in getting good in the. I see two things that I seem to missing but I was hoping you could clarify. Now for the next decision – Distrokid vs CD Baby (standard)…. We act as a publishing administrator to collect publishing royalties on behalf of songwriters. I have read you telling a few people that they shouldn’t be in a rush to attain a publishing admin until they create a fan base and have actual royalties to collect internationally. Hey Brian, thank you for the article. Personally, I don’t want to have to decide when to pull a release based on slowing sales. The site stated NOTHING about charging $10 per song. In addition to Eric, in the terms; pretty bad honestly…. Hi Brian and thanks for this post, Elligibility. It sure would be easier if it could be handled by the aggregator. CD Baby Pro looks promising but…given that a copyright lasts the life of the composer, plus 70 years, it seems antiquated for an Account Holder to have to provide co-writers with writer splits and sales updates for a lifetime. If you need more than 50 credits, we charge 10$ per 10 songs going forward. they would be kind of like my internet police preventing other youtube/soundcloud etc. You do need to be affiliated with a PRO in order to use Songtrust's service. ; Businesses Get complete song performance insights and new ways to collect revenue. Does it require its own account, or is it part of your Songtrust writer’s account?
