Do you Guys Monetize the videos on your Youtube Channel?
Yes. Since Jan 2015.
Does the artist get a cut from the earnings made from monetized videos on your Youtube channel?
We are in a Beta stage right now of a payout system that are testing on a few artists on our channel. The plan is to launch this for all artists we feature on our YouTube channel in 2018. This will only be available to artists whose music/ video generates revenue streams on the channel. For those videos that do not generate any revenue streams, there will be no revenue to split. We plan on paying all future submissions that are chosen to be on the NRW YouTube page a monthly 50:50 split on all earnings via PayPal. This feature will not be available for any other channel apart from the main NewRetroWave YouTube channel at this time. For those artists that monetize their work via 3rd parties, this feature wouldn’t affect your claims in our videos.
We want all artists to know we do care for your work and appreciate what you, thus plan to focus our efforts in making all artists feel acknowledged.
We do encourage all artists chosen to be featured on our channel to monetize their work from a 3rd party source, or label distributor. This way you have full control of your earning power via YouTube. For those who choose not too, you will receive monthly 50:50 split earnings from revenue streams earned on your songs via PayPal.
Why Don’t You Guys Answer Back To E-mails? Especially Music Submission E-Mails?
We are truly blown away by the submissions we get weekly. However, because these submissions are now so large in number, we cannot answer all emails in the timely fashion as we would like to, since we want to give every submission a fair listen and chance. We now have a system in place where each person who submits to us gets a notification explaining how the acceptance and rejection process works. We are now doing more to answer as many, if not, all email submissions we get daily. Please be patient guys. Expecting a reply within a few days isn’t fair as we do a lot more that just upload music videos with our time, and have a lot of submissions to go through. We now have 3 team members monitoring our submission emails; Ten.S, Joey Edsall and Andrew Zistler. We will answers all submission emails in the order received. Please expect a 3 – 4 week time span for a reply.
We will be launching a new project in 2018 where songs/ artwork that are not selected to be on our channel can be showcased on our website for the public to listen/ view for a set period of time. Stay tuned.
