Getting paid for your music

Music is a business. In this business you need to know your worth. Do not sell yourself short. If you are a music producer, charge what you think is a reasonable rate and ask for publishing royalties as well if they are a national act. The key is to know what you are worth, but not be outrageous about the price. If you think your time and music production is worth $1,000 per track, then charge that. If people are not willing to pay it then either they do not respect you, they are not serious enough about their project or they just do not have the budget to afford it. If they do not have a decent budget then they may not be an act you want to invest music in anyway. Be smart about who you choose to work with. Think on a bigger scale. Choose independent acts that have regional to national exposure. Of course any major label act will generally be worth the time. Of course you need to analyze yourself as well. Do you have the skills to charge a certain price? What is your resume like? Who have you worked with before? Obviously if you have not had much experience then do not expect to get a ton of dough for your music, songwriting or whatever it may be you do. Just know your worth.
