Publishing Deal – when to seek a publishing deal and on what terms

A music publishing deal is not to be entered into prematurely and without proper consideration as to do so could have an adverse affect on your financial returns.

The timing on entering into a publishing deal and the evident success of the campaign will determine the terms and monetary value of the deal. Securing a good publishing deal is unlike a record deal because sourcing out the right publishers from the outset and keeping them informed and up to date with the campaign progress is not necessary. Negotiations with music publishers need not take place until such times when the campaign is building momentum or at its peak.
