MUSIC DIFFUSION

Cost:

From $3.37 to $18.07

Music Diffusion helps promote, publish, and license music for independent artists and labels. They have over 150 digital partner stores as well as the ability to distribute music to Deezer, iTunes, Spotify, Google Play, Facebook, Beatport, YouTube, Apple Music, and Amazon.

Not much customer feedback

There is not much customer feedback to be found regarding their services and very little on their "About Us" page, but it seems that they are a newer company. Their blog only goes back as far as 2018, which could be around when the company was started.

90/10 royalty split

When you decide to publish through Music Diffusion, you get to keep 100% of the rights to your work. You also keep 90% of the royalties from your songs, while Music Diffusion keeps the other 10%. For anyone in the US, trying to figure out the financial side of using Music Diffusion will be extra-confusing since everything is in euros without the option of switching it over to dollars. For the sake of this review, we will make it easy and translate the pricing page over to US currency.

Best Music Publishing Services

3 music publishing options

The following plans are provided as options for artists:

  • Free Plan: Your music stays online forever, you get free ISRC and UPC codes, label creation and updates are also free, and you receive monthly payments and progress reports.
  • Standard Plan for about $3.37 per track: Everything in free plan plus music gets delivered to all digital stores worldwide in 48 hours, Shazam is included, free YouTube content ID, free Facebook and Instagram monetization, and lyrics are made available on music services.
  • Platinum Plan for about $18.07 for unlimited albums for a year: Everything in free plan plus music gets delivered to all digital stores worldwide in 48 hours, Shazam is included, free YouTube content ID, free Facebook and Instagram monetization, and lyrics are made available on music services.

A little frustrating

Although Music Diffusion has a professional looking website, it is a little busy and might make it hard for a beginner musician to know exactly how to use their services. Their website also loads slowly when you change pages, which isn't necessarily concerning but it makes for a less user-friendly experience.

Options without explanation

Other pages on the Music Diffusion site with resources for artists include music distribution options, music promotion, and help with website creation and other streaming service networking. A community network is also available for artists who want to create profiles and collaborate with other musicians to share ideas and ask questions. Again, the website is full of links to click on, but it's not made very clear how they help artists or why they might be essential to producing music.

Better choices available

Music Diffusion does not have a Better Business Bureau profile, so we are unable to see how they rank based on customer complaints. Looking elsewhere results in little to no feedback from artists who have used their services. This is disappointing because it makes us think that they aren't a very popular or well-established service. Since they cater to European markets and don't have as straightforward of processes as our higher-rated services, we recommend trying a different publishing company first.

Continued from above

Finding a music publishing service is a great way to start out in the music industry. Even though today you might just be writing and producing music in your basement, publishing companies allow artists to share their vocal talents with millions and potentially get discovered by a big name label.

There are quite a few music publishing services to choose from when exploring your options. A more reputable company will know the ins and outs of getting their musicians the maximum amount of exposure possible. If perhaps your music does get discovered and have millions of streaming listeners, you'll want to use a service that allows you to keep larger portions of sales.

Before choosing the company you want to publish your music, we suggest you keep the following things in mind:

  • Cost. Will you be paying a reasonable price for services whether or not you make much money from your music? What is the cost of publishing a single song versus an entire album? Is there a continued fee for using their services?
  • Services Included. Does the publishing company offer assistance along the way for first-time musicians who don't yet know the ropes? Do they provide templates to give you a professional presence?
  • Distributing. What music networks will the publishing company help you get in with? Are they reputable and well-known in the industry?

TopConsumerReviews.com has reviewed and ranked the best music publishing services available today. We hope this information helps you achieve your musical aspirations!
