    Networking is suuuuuuper important too, keep that going 💪🏾. Might even be the most important factor, giving that personal touch to interactions w/ potential people who'd support what you're doing.

    glad i can provide some value to you. we gotta get these streams and get to this money fr we all too talented to be sitting on what we got and not fr pushing it. one of the biggest mistakes i made starting out was just dropping s*** and magically expecting people to flock to it.

    I honestly think some great things can happen from this forum from meshing some artists sound together. Everyone having their publishing and BMI right is the first tho if anyone is serious. But it’ll be dope collaborating but collaborate on all aspects... the art work for the song, video maybe, stream platforms, song credits... the aesthetic vision. Not just about throwing a song in SC.... we have to attack all aspects.

    any difference between publishing and BMI? i been registering all my work with BMI but unsure if that was just performance rights or publishing as well

  • Burstimo is great. Learned a lot from them.

    My first artist ever already has 2 songs each over 200k views

    havent finished this book yet but its been really informative, been taking notes in the notes app on it

    any difference between publishing and BMI? i been registering all my work with BMI but unsure if that was just performance rights or publishing as well

    from what i understand BMI runs 100/100 artist/publishing (200 total split) vs ASCAPs 50/50. so if you are registered only as an artist on BMI, and have a song you produced/wrote entirely, you'll be missing out on 50% of whatever royalities from not having registered a publisher

    • someone feel free to correct me if im wrong too, im still learning for sure

    im not sure either like ^ but from my understanding, BMI is a PRO and someone like Songtrust is a publishing administrator. on the flip side you can sign up for BMI through Songtrust which is what i plan on doing when i release

    Any producers here have any experience w/ selling beats w/ social media? 🤔

    Im trying it soon w/ a producer friend as a test run

  • I signed up to BMI as a song writer and publisher so I publish my own music when I drop it on DSP’s

    There was a $150 fee and contract agreement for publishing.

    I would also recommend Brandman Network channel, they got some gems with their videos and content they share.
