There’s serious money to be made in sync licensing

Placing your music in popular media isn’t just a great way to get exposure for your songs; there’s real money to be made in sync licensing! When your music is placed, we negotiate the upfront fee according to a few variables with the party who’s placing your music, and those fees can reach some pretty impressive numbers. AND that revenue is growing. 

Plus, it’s just cool to tell your friends and family your song is on the latest hit show everyone’s talking about.
