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

DJ MARKUS MOSER DOES IT AGAIN, CHARTING iiO NEW SINGLE OFF NEW CD, “EXIT 110”

Seductive and smooth, Nadia Ali took the world by storm with her sexy voice on her last CD ‘Rapture’ as one half of the duo iiO. Ruling dance floors since 2001, with a string of dance hits to her credit, Nadia Ali while part of iiO has given us unforgettable songs with “Rapture” “At The End” and “Kiss You” and a #1 US Billboard Dance Chart hit with “Is It Love” in 2006.

Fast forward to 2011, “The brand new and highly anticipated studio album, aptly titled “Exit 110”, was assembled by DJ/producer/songwriter Markus Moser, and features again, Nadia Ali on vocals. The success of iiO is undeniable. Their massive hits have inspired dozens of smash remix singles by DJ/producers such as Armin Van Buuren, Paul Van Dyk, Starkillers and many, many more. This together with an ongoing momentum of steady airplay and demand for an incredible 10 years, it was clear that comeback was in order; and finally that time has come: enter “Exit 110”.

The new album, EXIT 110, is now charting on iTunes in the top 200 and is in the top 10 beatport pop/dance charts.
