Thanks so much for the post Mark!
Finally some clear signals from the voids of the sync-licensing universe!
You prove loud and clear that it takes a LOT of time to make it in the sync licensing business.

Good luck with continuous exponential growth.

Thanks Chris, yeah it's a longer harder road than I thought, and in no shape or form did I think it would be easy. I guess it's natural that we only tend to hear about the really successful folks when we go hunting for information. The ones who quit often tend to do it quietly or they rock up on a forum somewhere saying it's a scam whilst failing to write anything licensable.

So I guess it's good to show the real life numbers behind someone who was reasonably competent near the start but who just kept going despite not seeming to pull in the riches promised in some of the marketing you see around Sync. Hopefully it will inspire a few people to never give up or it may do the opposite. Who knows. But at least it's transparent and not many are wishing to share quite so publicly.

It really is a long game, I'm not sure how many would stick it out but I am one stubborn SOB ( a little too stubborn at times :shock: ) but this year has proved to me it's actually starting to become worthwhile finacially. It's not all about the money as luckily I enjoy the process and I'd only be sat recording morw badly sung Cosmic Dolphins songs for Spotify that nobody would listen to so I may as well do something useful if I'm going to be in the studio. I do get a slight kick from knowing that a lot of people have heard my music now. Even if they don't it. I know it, and that's enough for me.
