Toronto’s own Smooth Jazz musician Dave Sereny released his new single “Come Here Baby” is amazingly soulful that reminds me of jazz pieces from Wes Montgomery and Miles Davis.

To Collect Music Royalties From Your YouTube Videos Embed An ISRC Number In Your Songs

Did you know that musicians who post YouTube videos for their music need an ISRC code? An ISRC code tracks additional royalties generated from your music videos. But first you must embed an ISRC code into the master file of your YouTube video!

 

Although YouTube pays you its own royalty from advertisements, it is possible to collect additional royalties when you use an ISRC code. This allows your YouTube videos for music to become more profitable!  The ISRC also applies to earning royalties on other sites besides YouTube. The first step is purchasing an ISRC code from an authorized vendor and having them embed it into the master file of your video along with your metadata. Once embedded, the ISRC code is tracked for each time the video is streamed for which you get paid. For more information click this link: YouTube ( at: bit.ly/ISRCYouTube )

 

Web ‘n Retail is licensed by the RIAA to issue and embed ISRC numbers into your master audio and music video files.  They have been in business for over 25 years helping musicians with specific challenges including marketing campaigns, ISRC code services and more.  For additional information, click here: www.MusicMarketingBYWebnRetail.com/ISRC-Number

Make Money From Your Music Videos on Social Media Sites Like Instagram But You Need an ISRC Number!

Did you know that you can get paid for your music or lyric videos that you post on Instagram? But only if you have an ISRC number embedded into the master file. An ISRC number tracks your playable streams turning your quality work into revenue or in other words, royalties. If you use Instagram to promote your music then you definitely don’t want to miss out on this!

Music and lyric videos in the past were considered for promotional use only. This has evolved along with the collection of royalties. You can now collect additional royalties from music videos, and lyric videos on streaming platforms such as Facebook and YouTube. The only requirement is to have an embedded ISRC code in those videos. ISRC (International Standard Recording Code) is an essential part of your master file in order for you to collect royalties. The ISRC number is tracked online and is reported to your distributor and those distributors would send out royalties accordingly. For more information, check with your distributors and PROs (Performing Rights Organization). You can also learn more info on YouTube 

To add an ISRC Code to your master audio and music video files, you must get one from an RIAA  licensed vendor. Web ‘n Retail is licensed to do so. In addition, Web n’ Retail is a music marketing agency and has helped musicians with marketing campaigns for over 25 years.
