EP56. Music Income NOW! What To Do for Income While You're Waiting for Licensing or Whatever....
EP56. Music Income NOW! What To Do for Income While You're Waiting for Licensing or Whatever....
So yes Sync licensing seems to be the Golden Goose. Or maybe a publishing or record deal is what you’re after (licensing is pretty much a publishing deal.) Also, stock can be profitable if you compose and produce the right music. But what do you do if you are just discovering these music incomes, but you still want to make music income? Today we talk about the music incomes that aren’t as immediately interesting but still can bring a solid income. No waiting. Using what you have now around you, you can bring income in NOW, this month! -- The Make Music Income Discord (Come join for great free conversation!): https://bit.ly/3fYDSVd The Production Music Academy: https://productionmusicacademy.com Make Music Income Website: https://www.MakeMusicIncome.com  Hello Composers! http://HelloComposers.com -- Watch the Podcast on our YouTube Channels: Make Music Income: https://www.youtube.com/MakeMusicIncome Stevie B / Production Music Academy: https://www.youtube.com/StevieBProductionMusicAcademy -- Follow Us on Instagram: Make Music Income: https://www.instagram.com/makemusicincome Steven Beddall: https://www.instagram.com/stevenbeddall/ Production Music Academy: https://www.instagram.com/productionmusicacademy -- Follow Us on TikTok: Make Music Income: https://www.tiktok.com/@makemusicincome Production Music Academy: https://www.tiktok.com/@productionmusicacademy -- Monday's Money Makers Podcast - https://spoti.fi/3Bali5f

We have not been shy to call out libraries and other places where we are making music income. But what about the libraries that have made us NO cash in our actual pockets? What about the time we spend on pursuits that really just bring in no money at all. or haven’t yet anyway. Does music HAVE to be a thing that brings us music income at every turn? Of course not.
