Pre-Approved Licensing

Pre-Approved Licensing

Beat Brokerz is built around the concept of "pre-approved" licensing, or purchase options. By defining a range of pre-approved licenses (terms and prices), you make your music instantly available for purchase by the most common types of music buyers. Think of it like placing a pre-packaged product on your shelf that buyers can purchase without a negotiation. If you have a pre-packaged product that fits the buyer's needs, they can simply pay the asking price and instantly get the music + license without any hassle.

On the flip side, buyers that need to license your music for uses that aren't addressed (covered) by your pre-approved licenses will have the opportunity to negotiate a customized license with you through the Beat Brokerz "make an offer" system.
