Why Shouldn't I Just Manage My Own Publishing?

Collecting all your global royalties can be confusing and time-consuming.

The complex process of collecting publishing royalties can be daunting for any songwriter, manager, or lawyer. There are dozens of global collection societies to contact, endless paperwork, high expenses, and confusing jargon. 

We simplify this process with our one-stop digital publishing administration service. By signing up with Songtrust, if your songs are accruing royalties and are ready for publishing registration, you get access to many global collection societies you wouldn't have otherwise. 

You also benefit from professional intellectual property management without relinquishing any shares of your songs or signing a long-term contract. Beyond that, we work hard to license your songs with leading digital services (e.g., Amazon, Spotify, YouTube, and Instagram) you wouldn't be able to negotiate with on your own.

In other words, Songtrust handles song monitoring, registration, administration, and royalty collection at a fraction of what it costs to do yourself — both in money and time.
