Cory Koehler latest blog post on MusicGoat shows how easy it is to get your music played on Internet Radio and collect royalties.
Here's an excerpt from the post:
"The site we will be using is Live365 (get info on how Live365 pays Royalties here). They’ve been around for awhile and they host thousands of amateur, semi-pro and pro broadcasters who are in many cases looking for music to play.Cory goes on to say that he actually tried the service:
And if royalties wasn’t enough to convince you, you could end up on a chart somewhere because in their words…
“Live365 reports weekly airplay charts in all major genres to CMJ, Radio & Records Magazine, Billboard On-Line and syndicates charts with 3rd party affiliates like Broadjam.com.” – Live365"
"... I dusted off my Live365 account and started reaching out to DJ’s. Next thing you know, I had responses from 16 DJ’s and a wide variety of my tunes were in rotation on some pretty cool stations."
He then tells you step by step how to do it:
1. Find Stations
2. Reach Out.
3. Be Ready.
4. Follow Up.
Very Important!: Before you do anything, you need to register with Soundexchange, so someone is tracking your Royalties, and you will need to sign up for a Live365 account.
