African Digital Content Distribution Company, Publiseer Ventures Into Music Licensing For African Creatives
The digital content distribution company, Publiseer, has now launched its music licensing services to musicians on its platform, including future ones to be onboarded.
Having recently crossed the 7,000 user mark, the digital media company has also launched its digital content distribution services to Francophone Africa, starting with creatives in Senegal, Ivory Coast, and Togo, with hopes to expand to more French-speaking nations in the nearest future.
“In the past, music licensing had never been easy for creatives, but things are fast-changing, and Publiseer is jumping on that fast-moving train as well. Our music licensing services will help creatives in Africa to connect with those who want to purchase their music,” says Chidi Nwaogu, CEO at Publiseer. “These people include major brands, producers, television, film companies, video games, and much more.” Both the buyers and the musicians mutually benefit from this service.
“The process is quite simple. Musicians upload their music on our platform and upon review and acceptance, we make it available for licensing. All current music that we distribute will be available for licensing as well,” Chidi continued. “However, current musicians on our platform can choose to opt-out from our licensing program within the next thirty days by simply stating this to us in writing. We don’t charge our musicians for our licensing services, much in the same way, we don’t charge them for our distribution services. We simply take 25% of whatever we make for them.”
Publiseer is a digital platform that helps independent and underserved African writers, musicians, filmmakers, and video game developers, to distribute, protect, promote and monetize their creative works worldwide, at no charge, with just a single click, and the digital platform shares in the revenue it generates for these creatives.
When Publiseer accepts a creative on its platform, Publiseer fine-tunes their creative works to industry standard, so that the creative stand a chance to compete on a global scale.
Then Publiseer distributes it to its over 400 well-established partner stores so that the creative is easily discovered. Publiseer also protects this content from illegal distribution and intellectual property theft, so the creative truly own the content.
The creatives can monitor their sales performance on Publiseer’s centralized dashboard, and they receive royalties via African-tailored payment methods, such as into a local bank account or through a mobile money wallet.
