    Sync Warrior Mike Genato is BACK to discuss Micro Licensing

    Today I have SYNC WARRIOR Mike Genato back on the show to discuss “Micro-Licensing” which in short, is direct to consumer licensing.

    Mike has credits including advertising campaigns for Lexus, Infiniti, Nissan, Nike, Adidas, and Mountain Dew; promos and show open for HBO, SYFY, MTV, and BET. He has also worked with such heavy hitters as Netflix, Discovery Networks, Viacom, SOUTH, Elias, Massive Music, MAS, and Expansion Team.

    We discuss everything from the definition of micro-licensing, to how to set your rates, how to handle transactions, what terms you need to put in your contracts, to how to set up your website, to how to find libraries/agents that will represent your catalog for you so you don’t have to be your own “sales rep”.

    This entire episode is chock full of GOLD so I would TAKE NOTES!!

Production Treasure Trove

I’ve listened to a lot of Music Production podcasts and never quite found one I jived with 100%. There’s something about this podcast, whether it’s Kris’ infectious excitement for production or her can do attitude or the plethora of valuable information she imparts, but I am hooked! This rises to the top of the best music production podcasts for me. Give a listen and you won’t be sorry.

Dripping with value

I love the PLAB podcast. If you’re a picky podcast listener - you want information but glaze over at technical details, you need to be riveted or you’ll jump to something else, or you require your listening time to be rewarded with usable takeaways - PLAB is the answer! The podcast is clear, motivating, engaging, and efficient, and it’s my go-to for inspiration and information. Kris Bradley talks about value and she *lives* it. There is so much value dripping from her podcasts, each of her courses, even her YouTube tutorials, you’ll get as much as you can possibly soak up. Kris will meet you right where you are and catapult you forward if you let her.
