Songtrust is publishing administrator, which differs slightly from a traditional publisher. This means that we register songs and collect royalties on behalf of our clients. We do not offer creative or promotional services for Songtrust clients.
We rely on our clients handling their own promotion and distribution. There are third party companies that can help you get placements and sync. Songtrust has been built to ensure songwriters are properly registering songs and collecting publishing royalties from the US and abroad.
Often Songtrust receives inbound sync requests because we've registered your works in repertories around the world. We forward these to you and give you the option to paper the deal yourself, keeping 100% of the revenue from the sync license. Or, if you prefer, we help you paper/license/negotiate the placement for our standard 15% commission.
