How to make money from your music in 2021

Getting started publishing your music can seem like a daunting task at first. With RouteNote’s simple and free distribution, it needn’t be.

RouteNote simplify the process of publishing music online, with end-to-end tools that cover uploading to stores/streaming services, monetizing on social media platforms, marketing releases and generating revenue. All you need to do is create the music and we’ll do the rest.

Step One

Now that you’re release is mastered and ready to be sold around the world, head to RouteNote, upload your audio files, then select the stores, streaming services and social platform you’d like to publish/monetize on. These include Spotify, Apple Music, iTunes, YouTube Music, Amazon Music, Deezer, TIDAL and many more, as well as social platforms such as YouTube Content ID, Facebook, Instagram, SoundCloud and TikTok. Choose RouteNote’s Free Distribution (zero fees, you keep 85% revenue) or Premium Distribution (a small fee, you keep 100% revenue). Our moderation team will take a listen to your release and make sure everything is looking and sounding perfect. Give it a few days and your release will start appearing on your selected services around the world (it really is that simple!)


Step Two

Just because your music is on Spotify, doesn’t mean 300+ million users will start streaming your music on day one. You’re gonna need a killer marketing team, or just head to our partner site PUSH.fm, who have free and easy-to-use campaign tools. Fan Links for example simplifies the process of sharing multiple links, by bringing them all together, under one customisable landing page. Pre-saves let you share links to your music prior to release day, increasing listeners on day one. Content Unlocks rewards your fans for social actions such as a free download in exchange for a like on Facebook.


Step Three

Monitoring and retrieving royalties from your release is super easy on RouteNote. Just login to RouteNote and head to Sales & Reports to see your statistics, sales reports and withdraw funds to your PayPal account. RouteNote will break down exactly how much each track generated on each store.


When you upload and publish your music through RouteNote, you always keep 100% of the rights to your own music. This means you are free to easily switch between Free or Premium distribution, or you can withdraw at any time.
