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.

Country Pop Artist Eileen Carey Welcomes October with San Diego Show

On October 10th, country pop fans of artists such as Keith Urban and Leann Rimes will have the opportunity to experience Eileen Carey live. She is a renowned vocalist who will be performing at the House of Blues in San Diego as part of the RAW Artist Showcase, beginning at 6:00pm, displaying all of her power and flair. Music Connection Magazine’s review of her previous show at the Whisky A Go Go said of Carey’s performance:

“The crowd was hooked from the moment “Hearts of Time” kicked off the night. Carey’s sassy, yet humble, stage demeanor gave off Gretchen Wilson meets Miranda Lambert vibes. [The crowd] engaged in hand clapping, line dancing and singing along … She’s not afraid to voice her thoughts and opinions. [The performance was] a perfect blend of upbeat and lower-tempo tracks showcasing her experience and versatility with ease, so much so that it came as a shock when her set was about to end.”

You really should capitalize on this opportunity to see the woman Elmore Magazine dubbed “a true musical chameleon who blends pop and rock and country influences with ease,” in person. Her unbeatable energy and charisma is uniquely refreshing, and all those in attendance of the showcase will bear witness to these traits. Her music resonates with all audiences with its engaging lyrics and captivating instrumental accompaniment.

For those not around the San Diego area next week, you can still experience Eileen Carey’s excellence. She recently released the official music video to her hit track “That Town.” The video illuminates the common struggle so many of us experience of trying to decide whether to leave the safety of our hometowns for the opportunities of the real-world, or to remain in our comfort zones. The music video carries a light mood with kids in Los Angeles embracing their bravery and entering the world outside of home.

To watch the “That Town” official video, check it out on YouTube. Other ways you can explore the talents of Eileen Carey are via Spotify. Also, to stay updated on all things Eileen Carey, visit her website and follow her Facebook and Instagram.

Image

Hip Video has specialized in music video promotion for over 13 years and with their expertise, they will promote your video and get it seen around the nation. This arena is not something to try to do yourself…leave the music video marketing to the pros!

Hip Video’s many years in the business have earned them close relationships with the video programmers at the national outlets (MTV, VH1, Much Music, Music Choice, Havoc TV, Video-on-Demand, etc.), which is exactly what you need to get your videos aired there.

There are great opportunities for exposure beyond the large national outlets, and Hip video works them all to secure videoplays on regional and local video tv/cable shows: lifestyle video pools (outlets that provide in-store music videos to nightlife locations, shopping malls, retailers, fitness centers, restaurants, etc.), nightclubs, high profile Internet outlets and popular blogs.

Successful music video campaigns require massive attention to detail (correct labeling, closed captioning, submission forms, digital delivery, DMDS, etc.) plus relationships with the Programmers.  Hip Video does all necessary homework, writes a professional and compelling one sheet to accompany the campaign, and actively and enthusiastically pitches the artist and video to their long-standing relationships all throughout the music video programming community.  To see what Hip Video can do for you, check out their list of services here.

They’ve worked with an impressive roster of clients including The Lumineers, Bon Iver, Motley Crue, The B-52’s, and many more.  The question isn’t who have they worked with, it’s really who haven’t they worked with!  You can see their list of clients here.  While their roster includes well-known acts, Hip Video is also committed to working with independent artists and labels because they are just as important.
