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.

How Does An Indie Artist Achieve Success In The World Of Digital Music Marketing?

In this era of digital music marketing, there are several pros and cons to achieving success as an indie artist. With a multitude of social media outlets offering users the opportunity to stream, download and listen to over millions of songs at the click of the button, an artist can’t afford to ignore the power of social media. Not only that, but with such an easy access, it is really hard for any artist to stand out and even make a successful career. Though digital music marketing may seem like a costly process, a well thought out online marketing campaign not only can boost your audience but also save you time and money along the way.

Online music promotion is more than just having a talent and a product. There could be thousands, even millions of people waiting to hear music just like yours, and you’ll never know without an effective marketing campaign. This is where Web ‘n Retail comes in. Web ‘n Retail, a division of Rock ‘n Retail, has managed campaigns for over 250 artists on major and independent labels as well as other non- music related projects. Online music promotion plays such a crucial role in the development of an artist’s fan base and, overall, career. As a result of a successful campaign, an artist will not only increase their following, but also their revenue.

But, let’s face it.  There are only so many hours in the day and you can’t be the best at everything you try to master.  So if you are looking for an alternative to doing it yourself, check our www.MusicMarketingByWebNRetail.com and Facebook
