Multiple submissions of the same track

Post by RHicks » Thu Feb 07, 2019 11:48 am

Hi folks

I've recently been submitting tracks to multiple opportunities. My thinking is that by spreading the track(s) wide, someone will bite. If two bite, I can apologise and say it's already taken. I'm not entirely comfortable with this approach though, and wondered how you guys deal with this (if at all).

Many thanks

It makes sense to me. As long as the track isn’t signed to an exclusive deal, keep pitching it.

Absoloutely !

The wheels move so slowly, pitch to everything you can..the chances of one cue attracting 2 Libraries around the same time are slim

This is standard operating procedure for me, and many of us seasoned vets, Rob. Keep pitching until they're signed, and if you're lucky enough to get two bites, then just make more. Rarely, however, will you find yourself in that position, but it's great when you do.
