|Selling Your Songs and Lyrics & Getting an Advance Payment
| The #1 Source for New and Current Songwriting Opportunities
|When it comes to selling your songs and
lyrics, songwriters today have it much
easier than they did just a few years ago.
More songs are now bought, sold and
downloaded online than almost any
other way, and song-selling sites such
as The Songwriter's Online Market-
place have provided songwriters and
lyricists with yet another way to sell their
songs and earn songwriting royalties.
I think that Marie Gagnon, of Trillium
Records, probably said it best, when she
said: "As a Record Company, when we
need to find new talent, we don't just wait
for it to walk in the door. Songwriters
who are out there promoting themselves
help make it easy for us to discover new
"I think that's why online songwriting
sites and music sites are so successful,
because it works both ways: singers
and songwriters can get discovered by
record companies and recording artists
a lot more easily than they used to, while
record company executives and
recording artists can find exactly what
they're looking for".
When you're Selling Your Songs online,
it's important to create a good
Songwriter Profile that tells potential
song buyers and music-industry
executives about you as a songwriter,
such as what type of songs you write,
which markets you think your songs and
lyrics would sell best in, and which
recording artists they're best suited to.
The good news is that most of the
leading online songwriting and lyric-
writing sites will be happy to create your
Songwriter Profile for you, which you
can usually approve and change any
way you like, before it's finalized.
Another big advantage of selling your
songs and lyrics online is that it can
eliminate the "middle-man". Since
the songwriters deal directly with the
song buyers and music industry
representatives, songwriters don't
require an agent or manager to sell
their songs for them, and therefore,
don't have to pay an agent's fee or
commission, which can sometimes
be as high as 15% of the price that
the songs and lyrics sell for. This
means that songwriters ultimately
earn more money for their songs ...

Songwriting and Lyric-Writing Marketplace Updates:
Start by listing 2 or 3 songs/lyrics for sale.
Once you sell one and establish relation-
ships with song buyers, you can list more
songs and deal directly with the song buyers.
