Both RouteNote and TuneCore distribute to Facebook & Instagram, however in every instance, RouteNote is better for the artist.
When you choose to distribute to Facebook, your release will be sent to both Facebook and Instagram. Any time anyone uses your song in a video on Facebook, Instagram, Facebook Stories, Instagram Stories or Instagram Reels, you’ll receive the royalties. Many distributors offer Facebook & Instagram, however some charge additional fees for the feature.
RouteNote’s pricing is simple. We have two options that are designed to suit artists big and small. We do not limit any stores or features on either tier. Distribution to Facebook & Instagram is nothing more than a box to tick on your release.
Our Free option is perfect for artists just starting out, with zero fees or recurring costs, while you keep 85% of the revenue.
Premium is best for artists with established audiences. For a small one off fee plus annual payment, artists keep 100% of the revenue generated.
- Single: $10
- EP: $20
- Album: $30
- Extended Album: $45
- Plus $9.99 annually
TuneCore advertise “free unlimited distribution on Facebook & Instagram”, however TuneCore charge per release distributed, plus a 20% fee for Facebook & Instagram.
- Single $9.99 per year
- Albums $29.99 for the first year, then $49.99 each following year
With 20% on top of a distribution fee, TuneCore’s Facebook & Instagram distribution is always more expensive than RouteNote’s Free or Premium model. Here’s an example of the net revenue for an album (7-18 tracks) that earns $100 per year through Facebook & Instagram on RouteNote Free, RouteNote Premium and TuneCore.
