At Media Music Now our aim is to help clients and visitors as much as possible from our website. This is not always easy as our area of business can be complex and, at times, overwhelming for users.
For example, music licensing is a complicated subject fraught with confusing and varying policies. For instance, many people do not realise that there is no standard royalty free music agreement; every library has their own variation.
In regards to voice over work, you will usually find that voice overs have differing rates and terms, which can make quoting for jobs difficult.
Also, audio production work is not an exact science either. People looking for a quote may have a vague idea about their production but will often want “ball-park” figures based on the scantiest of detail. This rings true for custom music jobs too.
That being said, the point of this post is not to list the various challenges in our industry, but rather to say that help is on its way.
We are committed to making our website and blog the best it can be, actively looking for areas that could be improved, create good valuable content and provide answers to the frequent questions people ask.
Starting next week we are going to be publishing a multi-part blog series aimed at anyone that purchases music for commercial purposes.
We are excited about publishing this collection of posts. We know that it will provide guidance to anyone that is new or already working in the media industry by clearing up some of the issues surrounding music use in 2012.
Going forward we intend to create similar content addressing other topics.
Whether you are a video producer, marketing and digital agency, web / software developer or photographer; if you use voice, music and/or sound effects in your productions and have any related questions or issues, we would be happy to hear from you.
