Stumbled on a Revenue "stream"! "Edited"

Post by JohnnyP » Mon Jul 27, 2020 10:31 am

Hi Folks,

Just wanted to pass along something that maybe some of you already know but I didn't.

I had a placement a few months back in the Netflix show "Outer Banks" episode 2 that ran about 45 seconds. It was a vocal song titled "Unholy Water" but they just used my instrumental tracks. Anyway when I checked tunefind (tunefind.com) my song wasn't showing up as being in that episode.

So what I did was get a free Tunefind account, add my song as part of episode 2 and type in a short description of the scene it was used in. Took me all of about 15 minutes.
I had already distributed the song to all of the streaming platforms, but as soon as I added the song to Tunefind it suddenly showed up on a lot of influential playlists. The song was streamed over 18,000 times in May and June and bought many times. The extra sales have only netted me about $150.00 so far but everything helps in this biz.

*EDITED Aug 3* Revised stats April-June" over 40,000 streams
Just wanted to pass that along. Best, John
