Sync Licensing: The Gateway To Passive Income For Audio Entrepreneurs – With Travis Terrell

Passive income is the Holy Grail of income types, but it’s something that eludes most audio entrepreneurs. Most of us simply trade dollars for hours.

One way to start building passive income is to venture into the world of sync licensing. The issue, however, is that it’s rapidly-changing, hyper-competitive, full of pitfalls, and a complete
“black box” for the average audio engineer.

In this episode, we interviewed the CEO Soundstripe – a rapidly-growing micro sync licensing platform. He helps break down the wall of confusion and helps us make sense of what’s working in today’s world of sync licensing.

“What we saw was this opportunity that the bigger companies didn’t see, and that was, everybody with a camera was now a filmmaker.” – Travis Terrell

“I would say that the vast majority of our listeners are creating songs with vocals in them, so it’s interesting to know that if you mute the vocal then suddenly you have two products. The song itself that you’re marketing to listeners and the instrumental that you could be marketing to sync licensing companies.” – Chris Graham

“Stop waiting on motivation to hit and focus on habit. Focus on those 5,000 words per day if you’re Stephen King or that one song per week if you’re a sync licensing artist.” – Brian Hood
