How To Sell Your Music
Being able to sell your music is no easy task. Song writing, composing and then getting a studio to actually distribute the song is a very hard task and one that requires a lot of hard work and dedication.
In essence, there are four basic tips that should always be followed if you want to sell your music.
The four basic tips are:
- Polish the Song: Before distributing a song and publicizing it, make sure that it makes sense. Simply put, the song should be rewritten if there are any inconsistency in the lyrics grammar or if the tone of the song does not match the melody chosen. Every line has to be re-read to verify it is good. The melody also needs to be improved if there is a change in the tone or pace of the song.
- Get A Demonstration Recording Done: In order to get the song distributed, a professional or you have to create a demonstration recording. This demo recording will be handed out to the various studios and agents so that the song comes into notice.
- Create A Copyright: Once a song has been produced and written, before having the song distributed, it is essential that the song is copyrighted so that it is not plagiarized. All one needs to do is register it with the Copyright office in Washington D.C. Simply download the application form and mail it to them. Once mailed, an individual can start duplicating the song and distributing it.
- Stop Procrastinating: A person that wishes to sell their song will never be able to earn any royalties if their song is sitting in the drawer at home. They have to go out there and distribute the song to various studios and publish it on YouTube and various other sites and locations to get the song noticed. Many people have the fear of getting their song stolen and as a result, they delay the process of distributing their song. It's important to realize that people can only steal an idea, not the song itself.
It is important to realize that song publishers and studios look for songs that are no longer than four minutes. They like songs with a new idea or concept or a song based on the aspect of relationships and love.
Keep in mind, that the title of the song has to be catchy and appealing as this can get a song noticed and give an individual an edge in the contract agreement.
Selling a song is no easy task. However, as long as an individual keeps the four main points of selling a song in mind, they can be on their way to getting noticed in no time.
