Music Needed for Cycling Training Videos

Cycling Fusion & Global Ride are two separate but related firms providing Indoor Cycling training videos. Both firms use music to drive the virtual riding experience, and thus require Sync Licensing. We are building an extensive online library of pre-cleared tracks that our video producers and on-line instructors can use in their Virtual Cycling and Digital Indoor Cycling Classes. About 50% of our music is in the 110 to 160 BPM range and are of the ELECTRONIC, HOUSE, TRANCE, PROGRESSIVE, TECHNO, DANCE category.

The balance is made up of almost all varieties, with ALTERNATIVE & ROCK holding a substantial presence. We use NEW AGE for warm up and cool down as well. Lyrics are fine, but can NOT be explicit. We are least interested in the genres of country, blues, jazz and classical unless they have distinct cross over or “fusion” type qualities. Artists are paid on a per usage basis, from fitness classes in gyms and personal video streaming in homes all over the world when our videos are streamed. Members of our franchise and at home market are also given options to download videos or purchase some on DVD titles. Both downloaded videos and DVDs pay higher rates to artists for each song included. Once tracks are included in our Pre-Cleared private library, they have the opportunity to be selected, used and subsequently paid for according to the terms of our custom contract.

Music Search: List Your Project on YouLicense in Three Easy Steps

A very popular and easy way to make sure you find the right music on YouLicense is to list your project on the Opportunities page.

Here is a quick three step guide to posting your project:

1- Go to your YouLicense account and click on “Opportunities” on the links menu at the top of the page. Then click “Create an Opportunity”.

2- Choose the opportunity type:

* Free Opportunity: Users will not be charged to submit music and are limited to one song per user. Users will be required to agree in advance to your terms and conditions and you can use the YouLicense standard license agreement or your own custom contract. You will not be obligated to select a song.

* Premium Opportunity: Users will be charged to submit songs. You can define the price of submission and YouLicense will share with you the money generated by submissions. Please note: we only approve high end licensing opportunities that are fair and that our users might not have access to otherwise. If you would like to use YouLicense to post a premium opportunity, please email naama@youlicense.com

* Audition Opportunity: This opportunity gives you the chance to find the right music by listing your project on the “Opportunities” page, giving a brief of the music that you’re looking for and allowing users to submit songs directly to you. The main difference is that there is no agreement involved at this stage and if you are interested in licensing a song, you will then have to contact the seller directly and make an offer.

3- Enter the opportunity details required:

* Remember to explain what the project is and more specifically the type of music you are looking for. Choose the day you would like the opportunity to end or keep it ongoing if you would like to keep building your list of song submissions.

* Additional information can be added in the next step including an opportunity logo or image, company information and website. This all helps in putting across the information our users need in order to submit the right songs.

* You can choose the genres and moods that are suitable to your project.

Once you complete the process, click “Save” and your opportunity will be sent directly to the YouLicense team for approval. The YouLicense team can help to give you guidance throughout this process and make sure that your opportunity is presented in the best possible way.

Success Story: Helen Austin’s Debut in Korea!


Helen Austin, a YouLicense artist, contacted us to let us know about her new album being released in Korea thanks to a contact she made on YouLicense.com!

Here is her email:

Hi YouLicense Team,
Thought I would let you know that a Korean company found me
through YouLicense and they are going to release an album of my songs in
Korea in a few months.

Thanks!!!


A few months ago Helen was contacted via her YouLicense store by Limelight Music Consulting, a company that holds a 35 per cent market share in the Korean commercial music production industry.

They approached her about releasing a CD with 12 of her songs and she has signed a contract with them to do this. It should be out in Korea in a few months.

Success Story: Jamie Holdens' Cathartic Moment!

We love hearing success stories. This is why we do what we do.
Helping independent artists get the word out and make some money - that's what we want!

Here's the email:

Hi Maor,
I received a very cool email the other day from an old friend of mine
from Edinburgh, Scotland...

"Just a quick e-mail to say that you are a truly global star! Heard one of your tunes last week on the piped radio in Argos Edinburgh Blackhall!
Chris."

just to elucidate....
- 'Argos' is an Elecrtical goods retailer with stores all over the U.K.
- 'Blackhall' is a small suburb of Edinburgh, Scotland - where I went to elementary school.
- Chris is a childhood friend of mine from Edinburgh...

I have to say - quite a cathartic moment...
thanks Maor,
cheers,

Jamie

Heather Fenoughty: Top Tips From Top Sellers



We decided to go out and talk to some of the top sellers on YouLicense to see what works best for them. With so many different features and ways to license music on YouLicense we wanted to know the secret to their success!

Heather Fenoughty, a composer specialising in music and sound for film, TV, theatre and multimedia projects, has had many successes on YouLicense, regularly licensing her songs in different projects and usages – big or small.

Here is what she had to say about using YouLicense to the max:
“The YouLicense experience for me has been great. It was exactly the kind of system I was looking for. The system is very straightforward. I regularly receive offers or “Quick Licenses” on my tracks with very little marketing efforts on my part, and the integration of the white label ‘music store’ with my own website sealed the deal. “

When asked about the features that work best for her, Heather mentioned:
The Widget is fantastic for promoting your music on other sites.”Quick License” and MP3 sales are great for older tracks that would normally just be ‘gathering dust’ in my archive, and I like the option of choosing whether or not to enable “Quick License” on my more popular tracks.”

Heather also had some great tips to pass on to help you license and sell your music. Here are her nuggets of wisdom:
•Always respond to offers and correspondence through the messaging service as quickly as possible.
•Sign off your business emails with a signature link to your page.
•Draw attention to your most popular songs with featured playlists so that they appear on the YouLicense homepage.

There you have it! So in case you wanted to try out these features, here is how it can be done.

To get your artist widget: Go to “My Artists” and click “Get the Widget” in the options column.
To enable “Quick License”: Go to “My Songs” and click “Edit” in the options column next to the song name. Go to “Select Licenses” and tick the “Enable Quick License” tick box.Once you’ve chosen your price package, go to “Activate” and click “Save”.
To enable “MP3 Sales”: Go to “My Songs” and click “Edit” in the options column next to the song name. Go to “Select Licenses” and tick the “Sell MP3 ” tick box. Enter the price you’d like to sell the MP3 for.

Then go to “Activate” and click “Save”.
