I’m kinda obsessed with how artists make money mostly because artists constantly ask me how they can make more of it.
Several weeks ago, we proudly blogged in support of The Future of Music’s incredible undertaking Artist Revenue Streams, which is a must read for any artist looking to monetize their music.
The FMC has begun to release the results of their in-depth study and they have identified 42 ways artists can earn money.
Numbers 5 & 6 on the list are:
5. Composing Original Works for Broadcast (an original jingle, soundtrack, score, or other musical work for a film, TV or cable show, or an ad agency…)
6. Synch Licenses (Typically involves licensing an existing work for use in a movie, documentary, TV, video game, internet, or a commercial).
