You've spent years honing your craft and are releasing great music. But how do you make a living off of music while you're still building your fanbase? You've heard about music licensing and have probably tried a few, if not all of the following:
- You've DM'd every music supervisor you could find
- You've gone to conferences and chased after the panelists with your business card in hand
- You've released your music everywhere and are crossing your fingers you'll be discovered by a music supervisor
Most importantly, after everything you've tried, you've gotten ZERO results.
What if you could learn what music supervisors are looking for? Better yet, what if you could learn the right way to get your music heard by music supervisors?

"How do I make money with my music?"
With this step-by-step guide to kickstarting your music licensing income, you will gain access to the minds of music supervisors and what they’re looking for. We will give an overview of music licensing, provide a step-by-step etiquette guide to getting your music licensed, and present tips on gaining access to music supervisors, decision makers, and their trusted sources.

We'll go over what makes a song "syncable" and the steps you can take to make your music more attractive to music supervisors.
