How do artists make money from sync licensing?

Music licensing can be a lucrative way to put your recordings to work. One artist recently earned $25,000 when CD Baby helped land their song on network TV. We want to help get your songs placed in TV shows, movies, videos, commercials, presentations, and more. CD Baby’s music licensing services are non-exclusive (meaning you can work with other agencies too!) and included with any Standard or Pro release, so don’t miss one of the best opportunities to make money from your music.

That means we can move quickly on your behalf. In the world of music licensing, swift one-stop licensing can spell the difference between securing a placement and watching it go to another artist. With CD Baby, you’ll never lose an opportunity due to copyright complications or communication lag-time.
