Why should I care about distributing my music to connected devices?2024-04-24T09:35:00+00:00

Distributing your music to connected devices, especially those manufactured in China, is strategically important for several reasons:

Massive Market Penetration: China is the world’s leading exporter of connected devices, including smart speakers, smart TVs, and electric vehicles, all of which are equipped with advanced multimedia capabilities. The global market share held by these Chinese-manufactured devices is substantial, meaning your music gains the potential to be accessed by a vast and growing audience worldwide.

Unique Access Points: These devices often serve as primary access points for entertainment in homes and vehicles, places where traditional streaming services may not be the default option. By integrating your music into these ecosystems, you capture listeners at moments of high engagement—whether they’re relaxing at home or commuting—increasing the likelihood of your music being played and appreciated.

Untapped Audiences: Many users of these devices in less mature markets may not actively use traditional streaming DSPs, either due to preference or the unique nature of the device interfaces, which often prioritize different streaming services or built-in media solutions. This presents an opportunity to reach an audience that might be otherwise difficult to engage through standard music distribution channels.

Strategic Positioning: As digital consumption habits evolve, being present on these devices positions you at the forefront of the next wave of music distribution innovation. This forward-thinking approach not only sets you apart from your peers but also aligns your brand with cutting-edge technology and market trends.

Global Reach with Local Impact: While these devices are exported globally, they often come with localized features and content recommendations. This can increase your music’s exposure in specific markets, particularly in your home markets, providing a strategic advantage in both broad and targeted audience engagement.

Why is Microsync Distribution labeled distribution?2024-04-24T08:37:38+00:00

The term “distribution” in Microsync Distribution encapsulates our approach to strategically disseminate and manage your music across a diverse array of platforms and with numerous digital service providers on a broad scale.

Unlike traditional synchronization which often involves negotiating single, often large-scale, end-usage deals (such as a specific track placement in a film or a one-time advertisement campaign), Microsync Distribution is designed to secure multiple synchronization licenses across a spectrum of uses.

This approach taps into a more dynamic and continuous revenue stream, aligning your music with various multimedia projects like online videos, games, and smaller-scale commercial uses simultaneously. This method not only broadens the exposure of your music but also enhances the potential for consistent and compounded earnings, diverging from the hit-or-miss nature of traditional sync deals.

Who can benefit from signing a Music Library Agreement?2024-05-11T04:09:45+00:00

Artists, producers, and labels seeking broader exposure and new revenue opportunities will find significant value in signing a Music Library Agreement with Kanjian. This non-exclusive arrangement enables you to retain the rights to your music while allowing us to distribute it across a diverse range of media platforms globally. It’s particularly beneficial for those looking to penetrate markets in TV, films, video games, and commercials, where synchronization rights can offer substantial earnings. The agreement is designed to complement, not replace, your existing distribution channels, providing a no-risk avenue to increase your music’s reach and profitability without forfeiting other opportunities. Whether you’re an emerging artist eager to get heard or an established label looking to maximize assets, the MLA is structured to enhance your current operations by seamlessly integrating with your broader commercial strategy.

Who can benefit from Publishing Administration Services?2024-05-11T04:03:00+00:00

It’s also ideal for music with cultural specificity or thematic uniqueness, which can thrive on platforms seeking varied content to cater to broad audiences.

To begin with Microsync Distribution, you’ll need to ensure both your master and publishing rights are fully cleared for synchronization. This means securing a synchronization license that includes:

  1. Master Rights: These are the rights to the actual sound recording of your music. You must have the authority, either as the rights holder or with permission from the rights holder, to license these recordings for use in various media formats.
  2. Publishing Rights: These involve the musical composition, lyrics, and any underlying works of your music. It’s essential that these rights are also cleared, which involves coordinating with songwriters, composers, and, in many cases, music publishers.

With both sets of rights secured, we can then distribute your music to digital service providers across our network, where it can be used in a range of projects. Our team will guide you through the process of documentation and verification to ensure all your tracks are ready for synchronization and compliant with legal requirements.

How can Connected Devices Distribution specifically increase my earnings?2024-04-24T09:34:55+00:00

Connected Devices Distribution can specifically increase your earnings through several key avenues:

Expanded Reach: By distributing your music on connected devices like smart TVs, smart speakers, and electric vehicles, you access a broader and diverse audience. These devices often come with built-in music services that feature curated playlists and recommended tracks, placing your music in front of listeners who are looking for new content but might not have discovered you on traditional DSPs.

Reduced Competition: Since these ecosystems are less saturated than platforms like Spotify or Apple Music, your music faces less competition. This can lead to higher play counts and more exposure, which translates directly into increased royalties.

Direct Licensing Agreements: We facilitate direct licensing agreements with device manufacturers, which often yield better financial terms compared to traditional streaming services. This is because you can negotiate rates that aren’t bound by the standardized payouts typical of popular DSPs, potentially earning you more per play.

Holistic Rights Management: By managing both master and publishing rights, we streamline the process, allowing you to capture more of the revenue generated from your music without needing to split earnings with additional rights management entities. This efficiency not only reduces administrative overhead but also maximizes the financial returns from each track.

Global Market Penetration: As these devices are distributed globally, your music gains international exposure without the need for region-specific marketing strategies. This opens up new markets where your music can earn royalties, further diversifying and increasing your revenue streams.

Absolutely, Kanjian empowers its clients to select specific platforms or regions for their music distribution based on their target audiences and strategic preferences. With an expansive array of DSPs both within China and internationally, Kanjian facilitates tailored distribution strategies that align with your unique setup and goals.

Are there specific regions or markets where this strategy works best?2024-04-24T09:34:39+00:00

While this strategy has global applicability, it’s particularly potent in areas where connected devices are popular and still proliferating. China, as the leading manufacturer and exporter of these devices, is a primary market, but the reach is truly global. As these devices are exported and used worldwide, your music gains international exposure, not just in established markets but also in emerging ones.

Are there any upfront costs or fees involved?2024-04-24T09:36:04+00:00

There are no upfront costs for transitioning to Microsync Distribution. We operate on a commission basis, meaning we only earn when you earn. Our fees are transparent and tied to the revenue generated from the sync licenses we secure for your music.
