WHAT IS SYNC LICENSING FOR MUSICIANS?
Sync licensing opportunities enable artists to get their music featured in audiovisual content such as TV Shows, Movies, Video Games, and more.
These deals are not guaranteed for all artists through UnitedMasters, but as a SELECT artist you are eligible to submit for them. To make sync licensing easier for you and for brands, you should:
- Own your masters, which you'll do for all of your releases through UnitedMasters.
- Distribute your music across all social platforms and streaming services, which is included with UnitedMasters SELECT.
- Keep a list of producers, co-writers and other collaborators who you have worked with.
- Write out your song lyrics in a document to share with the UnitedMasters team.
- Export your song in .WAV format for optimal audio quality.
HOW CAN UNITEDMASTERS SELECT HELP ME GET BRAND DEALS WITH MY MUSIC?
With UnitedMasters SELECT, you can apply to gamechanging brand partnership opportunities through our Exclusives feature.
Brand Partnerships are opportunities that enable artists to be featured as a part of a marketing campaign or other placement with a brand. These opportunities vary, and include everything from playlist placements to performances to features in social campaigns. With UnitedMasters you can land partnerships with iconic brands like ESPN, the NBA, and more.
It is never guaranteed that you will be selected for these. However, here are things you can do to become brand ready and stand out:
- Have a clean brand image. Make sure your social accounts don't have anything that can be seen as a red flag to global brands.
- Grow your social following. Be consistent with your content and music creation.
- Develop your live performance skills.
- Find promotional opportunities to get your music featured in magazines, radio, and blogs to show your momentum as an artist.
WHAT DOES UNITEDMASTERS MEAN BY “UNLIMITED MUSIC DISTRIBUTION”?
With unlimited music distribution, UnitedMasters SELECT artists can upload and distribute as much music as they want, and keep 100% of their streaming royalties. This means there are no restrictions on the number of tracks you distribute through your plan, so as soon as you finish your next hit album, you can upload and release it. Plus, with UnitedMasters SELECT, you can release music in as little as two business days.
Traditionally, distributing music through record labels can be quite costly and limit an artist's creative control. UnitedMasters aims to provide an alternative to this by providing a platform where artists can upload their music and manage their distribution independently.
HOW DOES UNITEDMASTERS SELECT HELP ME MARKET AND PROMOTE MY MUSIC?
With UnitedMasters SELECT, you get access to powerful marketing and promotional tools to help you make the most of every music release.
The UnitedMasters MasterLinks feature allows artists to create unique links for their music releases that can be easily shared with fans and potential listeners. These are custom landing pages for your tracks that include artwork, links to buy or stream the music, social media links, and other information. These links can then be shared across platforms like social media, email, and messaging apps, to promote the music and reach a wider audience. One of the key benefits of MasterLinks is that they help you track the performance of your music across different platforms and channels. You can see which links are driving the most traffic and engagement, and use this information to refine your marketing strategies and reach more fans.
UnitedMasters also has ArtistPages, which are customizable web pages for independent artists to showcase their music, bio, and other information to fans and potential listeners. They can be used to promote your music and brand across channels, and feature your latest music releases, videos, upcoming shows, plus links to their social media profiles, merchandise, and other content.
To top it off, UnitedMasters SELECT artists get access to apply to Exclusive brand partnerships and sync licensing opportunities, which enable them to get their music into major playlists, TV Shows, Movies, and more.
HOW DO I GET PAID FOR STREAMING EARNINGS I RECEIVE THROUGH UNITEDMASTERS SELECT?
When you distribute your music through UnitedMasters, you will be paid royalties for each time your music is streamed or downloaded. These royalties are typically based on a percentage of revenue generated from the sales or streams of your music. The exact percentage can vary depending on the platform where your music is streamed or sold.
With UnitedMasters SELECT, you can cash out your earnings any time from your Wallet. Wallet is a feature within the UnitedMasters platform which holds your collected royalties from streaming platforms, which can be transferred to your bank or PayPal accounts.
