How to share my music on Instagram

Getting your music on to Instagram and Instagram Reels means every time your song is used in videos, you’ll earn royalties.

Before you share your music video to Instagram and other social media platforms, be sure to distribute your music there to monetize your content. With RouteNote’s free music distribution, you can start earning revenue from Instagram, Facebook, YouTube with Content ID, SoundCloud and TikTok, alongside the usual stores and streaming services such as Spotify, Apple Music, iTunes, Amazon Music, YouTube Music, Deezer, TIDAL and more. When you choose Facebook Facebook Instagram icon in the Manage Stores section of your release, your music will be monetized across Facebook and Instagram, as well as Facebook Stories, Instagram Stories and Instagram Reels. Note, you must own exclusive rights to the music you upload to Facebook (Instagram) and YouTube Content ID. There are some exceptions for the kind of release that can be uploaded to these stores.

It’s super easy and requires no upfront of recurring fees. Even if you’re already on stores and streaming services with another distributor, you can still use RouteNote to fill the gaps.

All that you need to do is sign up to RouteNote, upload your tracks and artwork, input the metadata, then be sure to tick the Facebook box in the Manage Stores section, along with any other stores and streaming services you wish to distribute to. Finally choose between Distribute Free and Distribute Premium. Free doesn’t cost a penny across stores, while the artist keeps 85% of the royalties generated. Premium costs a small fee, while the artists keep 100% of the royalties generated. You can switch tiers for any release at any time.

Now your release is done, it’ll be sent to our moderation team who will check it for any errors. All being well, it’ll be approved and sent on to our partner stores. A few days later, it’ll be uploaded to the selected stores. Keep an eye on the music section of Facebook or Instagram Stories to see when the track has been ingested by their system. Every time your music is used in a video, story or Reel, you’ll earn a commission.

Each month, earnings will be sent to your RouteNote account. These can be transferred into a PayPal or bank account. Sales reports will breakdown exactly how much each release has made in each store.

With RouteNote, you’re never locked in. RouteNote artists always keep 100% of the rights to their release.
