Hope everything’s going good with you? In Today’s lesson I’m going teach you how to get paid everytime you perform not matter what even if the venue is a whole in the wall club.Once you apply this tactic you will make money from your shows guaranteed and you can take this dam near free money to invest into furthering your music career. This is what every artist in the music business does and indie artist need to do this also.Check it out.
After working with thousands of independent rap artist I realized that majority of them don’t know understand when or how they’re supposed to get paid their royalties,or they’re already a member of a Performance Rights Organization, but they don’t know what they need to do to actually start getting paid royalties for their shows.so they say Fuck it and never try to figure it out.
Honestly, that’s the worst thing you could do because you could be leaving thousands of dollars on the table that you could be reinvesting into your music career. But you don’t have to worry about that anymore because I’m about to show you exactly what steps need to be taken after you perform so you can make sure you get paid.
So when should you get paid? You should get paid for every performance! This includes when you do a show and when your music is played on the radio or anywhere else! Your music is copyright material and in order for someone to use it they need to pay you a performing rights fee. It doesn’t matter how early in your career you are, if someone uses your music you should get paid; including online radio!
So how do you collect these royalties? You don’t. There is an organization that issues a performing rights license for use of your music, and collects the royalties for you. This entity is called a Performing Rights Organization.
Anytime you do a show, get your music played on radio, or someone uses your music, all you have to do is fill out a PA Form which is provided to you from your Performing Rights Agency, send it in, and they will go get your money for you. You just sit back and collect the checks.
But in order to get paid you have to do your part first, and that is fill out the proper forms! Again, it doesn’t matter if you started your rap career last week, and this week you manage to get radio play, all you have to do is send in your forms, and the PRO goes after your money. Now how simple is that?

Every music artist should be collecting royalties if their performing at venues, then you can reinvest that money into building your brand and furthering your music career.
Like always make sure everything that represents you and your music is professional from your graphics to your performance .Having a professional image makes more venues book you for shows, which in return means more royalty checks for you.
