Interesting video by sound designer Greg Savage
This guy made a lot of sense.
Most musicians are just too ignorant to be involved in the business.
I've been very happy with Broadjam. Like he says in the vid, they tell you the deal UP FRONT. He makes a ton of good points, actually. "Own 100% of nothing, vs 50% of something." They tell you a client has a $2,000 budget, and you'll split that with the library if it's placed - ...and?? I'll take the G, and congrats to the library for making a G and keeping the site up & running so I can potentially make more G's.

Thanks for support how I can thank you?
Hi Greg Just caught your video. I subscribe to Broadjam and have entered for a number of competitions and licensing opportunities. As someone trying to get attention for my songs I feel a need to do this although I do feel that these sort of services are, in some cases, exploiting a starry eyed mass of folk. Recently, for example, there was an opp to have your song pitched to a major Major artist. NO songs were selected. Surprising?? So yes, you know what you are paying for but is it reasonable. Most submission in BJ are $5 but there is one at the moment where the fee is $15 - with a wide ranging remit if say 1000 people submit songs someone is raking in 15,000 dollars and then making money if they select any that sell.
That out of the way I would like to make my songs available as widely as possible - can you recommend any libraries that wont demand a pound of flesh. Cheers Ant
