5 Reasons You Need A Publishing Deal

Did you know that there is more to music than playing live shows and selling? Royalty collection is a complex business, but as an independent artist, knowing your rights and what kinds of royalties you may be earning is crucial to maximizing your income. Music Publishing is the business of collecting royalties for the usages of songwriters’ musical compositions.

Here are the top 5 reasons why you need a publishing deal!

1. You have money waiting to be collected.

Collection societies around the world collect money from your music every time your tracks are played in digital stores, played in a streaming website, performances and more. If you don’t have a Publishing Deal, you will never see these royalties, and if left unclaimed, these funds will be allocated elsewhere.

2. You keep ownership of your music.

Symphonic’s Publishing Administration service will never claim ownership over your music. Publishing Administration actually makes YOU the owner of your music.

3. Pricing that can’t be beat.

For only $75 per songwriter, we will collect from collection societies in over 60 countries around the globe. This fee is a one-time deal and will cover all the songs that you’ve ever made!

4. It’s simple.

Start your deal today and simply register your songs in the SymphonicMS. If you were to do this on your own, our research has shown that you would be spending an upwards of $7000 to register in all the collection societies, and can take up to 12 months to get all the paperwork in place.

5. We make sure you get paid.

You didn’t become a musician to be an expert in copyright and foreign exchange. Let us do the heavy lifting so you can get back to making music. Don’t let these societies control your rightfully-owed royalties.


We hope that these 5 reasons made you consider getting a publishing deal. If you’d like more information on Publishing Administration, you’re also welcome to check out our two Publishing Guides.
