Musicians are forever looking for ways to find new fans and make some money. Song lyrics themselves were never a focus as a standalone component to monetize, but that has changed in recent years.
Today (Thursday August 27), the Association of Independent Music Publishers (AIMP) is hosting a webinar presented by LyricFind Founder and CEO Darryl Ballantyne. The webinar begins at 5:30 pm EST/4:30 CST/2:30pm PST and accessed at the AIMP website here. Admission is free and open to the public, but you must register in advance.
Ballantyne will walk participants through the significant benefits of lyric licensing and outline the steps necessary to start monetizing your lyrics and maximizing your asset value. With potential for exposure in 200 territories across online platforms like Google, Amazon Music, Deezer, and more, LyricFind can help you increase song discovery, deepen fan engagement, and increase your revenue through lyric displays and synchronization, lyric translations, voice search, licensed merchandise and more.
