CD Baby is placing music by many independent artists in high-profile TV shows and films, and you could be the next success!

Want your music to be used in film and TV? CD Baby’s sync licensing program has placed an impressive amount of songs on every major network, in big budget films, and on many of the popular streaming platforms like Netflix and Hulu.

We’re here to help you find every opportunity for your music to reach new listeners and drive revenue. This has resulted in more CD Baby artists being showcased on major networks and streaming platforms than ever before.  So far in 2020, our sync program has seen 57% growth in terms of songs placed.

Why do music supervisors want Soundcloud promotion real to work with CD Baby?

In short, our sync placement team is really good at what they do, and they’ve formed relationships with music supervisors working for dozens of networks and streaming platforms. It’s the job of those music supervisors to find the right songs to place in film and TV shows. They prefer to work with CD Baby because we can get them exactly what they need — and quickly.

We boast a massive library filled with a diverse array of styles and genres to choose from, and they can communicate directly with our team of experts for easy negotiation and approval of placements.

There’s serious money to be made in sync licensing

Placing your music in popular media isn’t just a great way to get exposure for your songs; there’s real money to be made in sync licensing! When your music is placed, we negotiate the upfront fee according to a few variables with the party who’s placing your music, and those fees can reach some pretty impressive numbers. AND that revenue is growing. 

Plus, it’s just cool to tell your friends and family your song is on the latest hit show everyone’s talking about.

    3. Influencers repost your song to their followers.

  • What are you going to do for me?
    We give your release a boost by getting it in front of a real audience. We provide you with a "first wave" of engagement that you may not be able to get otherwise. What happens next is up to you and your music.
  • How long do reposts last?
    Reposts stay active for 48 hours. After the first 48 hours, your reposts are too far down the stream to be noticed. Removing them keeps an influencer's channel from being over-used and outdated.
  • Will I go VIRAL from one organic soundcloud promotion?
    The truth is, probably not. Unless you have the next “The Box” in your pocket, you are probably not going to blow up from one promotion. We are not going to bullshit our clients and make false promises. Think “Brand Building” not “Overnight Sensation.”
  • Will I get noticed by labels?
    The best way to get noticed is to keep your brand in front of an audience while producing top quality material. Labels want real artists who already have a brand together, who self-promote and have a good presence on Soundcloud and Spotify. Please, don’t expect to send out some reposts and get signed. This is the most competitive business in the world.
  • Can I have the links to your influencer channels? 
    No. It took us many years to build our network.
  • How many is a million?
    The number represents the total amount of followers your song is shared with. It doesn’t mean that your track will be reposted by a million influencers.
  • Can I split an order between multiple songs?
    We require a minimum of 1 million reposts per song when splitting an order. The minimum order you can split between two songs is 2 million reposts.
  • Can I change the link to my song?
    Unfortunately, no. The organic Soundcloud promotion can't be forwarded. It is okay to change the title or other meta-data, just not anything that affects the link.
  • What if no one likes my music? 
    If we can't get anyone to repost your track, we will refund all of your money.
  • Are the organic SoundCloud followers real people who will become fans?
    They are fully organic, real, living people who have downloaded other music from our fangates and given the option to follow you. Once they are following you they will receive your music in their streams and it's up to you if you connect with them and build your community. This is how to turn them into "Superfans."
  • Will they immediately like my music?
    New followers are not automatic "fans" and will probably not engage your tracks right away. You have to engage them by streaming good music, following them back, comment on their stuff, and chatting with them.  Build your community.
  • How Long does it take to gain 1000?
    Once the campaign has started, you can expect 1 week per-1000.
  • How can I track the progress of a campaign?
    Watch your organic Soundcloud followers grow on the Pulse app or in Notifications on the website.
  • Can I change the link to my profile after I order?
    No. Unfortunately, the promotions can't be forwarded. It is okay to change the title or other meta-data, just not anything that affects the link.
