Monetize your music on Youtube

Written by prune on . Posted in Digital Distribution, Help and Support, Knowledge Base

Wiseband expands its distribution offer and welcomes a new partner : YouTube, the largest platform for video hosting. Available all around the world, YouTube is an essential space for listening and watching music. With 500 million videos viewed each day in 2015, YouTube can help you reach a wide audience and get your music discovered. > How it works? What Wiseband offers you today is to identify your music on all the videos posted on Youtube. If you choose this option, the audioprints of your music will be transmitted by Wiseband to Youtube. So that all the videos that could use an extract or a whole piece of your music will be detected. This includes your own videos as well as those issued by a third party, for example, a person who uses your music to illustrate his personal video. Concretely that means that the videos that include your music can be monetized. That is to say that the content that appears on YouTube is monetized when an advertising is associated to it. > How to monetize a video? So you can earn money when a video that includes your music is associated with an advertising. In this case you will receive a share of advertising revenue generated by the video. Please note that the monetization of your videos on Youtube is not automatic. Furthermore, the amount of advertising revenue depends on advertising investment and on the number of viewings of these ads. So, it can dramatically vary from one video to another. > How to put your music on Youtube ? New releases : If you are not distributed by Wiseband yet, just go on the “Distribution” page of your Wiseband tab, then click on “Distribute an album / single on digital platforms ». Releases already distributed : If you are already distributed by Wiseband on the digital platforms, you just have to go to the “Distribution” page on, tab “Items”, then click on “metadata summary” and then add the platform. > In practice You chose to distribute your music on Youtube and have selected this platform among those proposed by Wiseband. When you confirm your choice of platform, the following window appears : youtube Read attentively this text, we ask you to guarantee that you hold the exclusive rights of your music by ticking the box in front of each track of which you hold the copyrights. You can not use the Youtube service if you are under a Creative Commons license and if you use extracts free from rights or covers (can’t be used for the Youtube distribution : covers, samples, work in the public domain, sound bank…). > Your distribution has been confirmed We send the audioprints of your music to Youtube that receives it under 48 hours. The Youtube robot is then in charge of the identification and monetization of your music.
