HitLicense 2017 Update

We are excited to share a sneak peek of what is in store for 2017.  Starting in March of this year we will begin launching a number of new updates and initiatives.

The primary motivator for these changes is to help foster direct connections between our members and music licensing clients.  It is with this in mind that we have been busy working on a new and engaging way to make music discovery, sourcing and connection more accessible, convenient, and personal.

Music Sourcing and Discovery App

Our biggest initiative has been the creation of a new mobile music licensing app. This app is the first of its kind that is solely dedicated to the discovery and sourcing of music for licensing and is specifically designed for Music Supervisors, Producers, Agencies and Music Libraries.

“This app is the first of its kind that is solely dedicated to the discovery and sourcing of music for licensing and is specifically designed for Music Supervisors, Producers, Agencies and Music Libraries.”

We have been fortunate to partner with a great team in helping us bring this product to fruition.

At the heart of this application is a way to directly connect music licensing professionals to our members through an intuitive custom mobile application.

This new tool allows music licensing professionals to create their own private network of licensing contacts.

They can easily discover and add new contacts to their licensing network, as well as use the mobile app to work with their existing connections. This app enables a Music Supervisor to easily compose and send music requests to all or select members of their network.

Members that receive a direct music request will be instantly notified on their mobile device and can access the details and submit directly through their mobile or desktop.

“There are no submission fees and members deal directly with the Supervisor, Agency or Producer. It is another powerful way for music licensing professionals to discover, source and build lasting music connections.”

We refer to this model as “controlled crowd sourcing” because it is based on the direct connections initiated by the music licensing client.  There are no submission fees and members deal directly with the Supervisor, Agency or Producer. It is another powerful way for music licensing professionals to discover, source and build lasting music connections.

This new platform will be available on desktop and via a free Mobile App (IOS and Android).

Launching Summer 2017.

Custom Licensing Profile

In March of this year all HitLicense members will have the ability to create a custom music licensing profile. This will enable you to start showcasing your music and talents directly to licensing professionals not only within HitLicense but also in the new Music Sourcing and Discovery App.

Highlights of the profile include the ability to feature songs and playlists, add information such as cover photos, videos, credits, logos, affiliations, administrative info, etc.

“Licensing clients will have the option to follow you once the mobile app launches. This provides a platform for them to receive your music updates, as well as conveniently source music from you directly.”

In addition, licensing clients will have the option to follow you once the mobile app launches. This provides a platform for them to receive your music updates, as well as conveniently source music from you directly.

In order to have enough curated music and licensing profiles for the discovery section of the mobile app, we will be posting a large number of free promotions for members that have setup their free licensing profile. This is exclusive to HL members only, so stay tuned for more details!

Launching March 2017.
