How TV Placements Add Up To Nice Royalty Checks
If you've been following my #RoadTo10Placements journey then I'm sure you've seen some of the TV and film placements that have been rolling in as a result of the hard work I've been putting in this past year. My most recent placement aired this week on VH1 during an episode of Love & Hiphop Atlanta. Pretty cool since I actually live in Atlanta. I was excited about this particular placement because it was on a network that loves to air rerun...after rerun.....after..you get the point. Producers who license their music for TV LOVE this because those reruns using our music adds up to a nice royalty check!
Below is a snapchat of my detections for this particular episode that just aired a couple days ago:
Now on this episode I only had one track that was placed, but as you can see that episode has aired at least 9 times so far. It's pretty much a numbers game. You get paid each time a show that used your music airs. So imagine if you had hundreds of tracks on these tv networks with countless reruns.....*insert your imagination here*....yeah. That adds up to a decent check that you can invest back into your music!
Hopefully, I can land some more stuff on VH1 and continue to see some cool residual income from it.
