Making Connections

Posted by Aaron Davison on Thursday, December 5, 2013 Under: December 2013

If I had to pick one step that’s the most important part of getting your music licensed it would be making connections.  I write about a lot of the technical aspects of the music licensing business in my newsletter and on my blog.  I cover things like music publishing, licensing contracts, music supervision and so on.  These things are all important to know about.  The more educated you are about the business the better you’ll be able to navigate your way through the industry.

But in terms of actually getting your music licensed, it really comes down to making connections. All the knowledge about music licensing in the world isn’t going to help you if you aren’t actually making connections with the right people.  Assuming your music is up to speed, the most important thing you can do on a regular basis in order to get your music licensed is connect with people working in the industry.  A lot of the technical aspects of the business you can learn as you go.  Not knowing the ins and outs of the variety of licensing deals that exist won’t prevent you from licensing your music.  But if you don’t connect with the right people in the first place, you’re never going to be offered a contract and you’re not going to get your music licensed.

One of the reasons that my program, “The 90 Day Music Licensing Challenge” has been so effective in helping musicians get started in the licensing business is that it provides a structure for musicians to connect with people working in the business who are looking for music on a regular basis.  It’s very hard to work at something consistently for 90 consecutive days and not make at least a little progress. 

When I created The 90 Day Challenge I thought a lot about when I first started in the licensing business and the steps that I took that ultimately led to success.  As I reverse engineered the steps I went through to license my music I realized it wasn’t until I started to take very consistent steps to connect my music with the right people that I found success.  It wasn’t enough to just occasionally send my music to someone on a whim.  It required a much more deliberate and consistent effort.

The 90 Day Challenge is the program that I wish was around when I started out.  Here’s how the program works:

When you sign up for the 90 Day Challenge you’ll immediately get access to all training and bonus material.  You’ll get 30 in depth video tutorials, pdf files, sample contracts, a comprehensive licensing directory, bonus interviews and more.  You’ll get over 20 hours of in depth training about the music licensing business.

When the program officially starts on Monday, December 9th, you’ll start receiving daily licensing leads of specific places to submit your music.  You’ll get 90 daily leads for 90 consecutive days.

During the first week of the program we’ll also schedule a one on one phone consultation to discuss your specific situation and address any specific questions you have.  Throughout the program you’ll also have access to me via email in the event any additional questions arise.

The next 90 Day Challenge is starting on Monday, December 9th. Due to the coaching involved, there are a limit of 25 spots in total.  Once the spots are gone I won’t be taking on any more people.
