Ok, I'm back again with the September and October stock music earnings reports. As I usually say - it was the best of times, it was the worst of times (aka - the industry is inconsistent).
So in September I smashed through my record high to earn $382 on Pond 5 licensing music. Then the sugar high wore off, and I crashed down to $263.
A drop of more than $100 is kind of shocking. But I've been licensing music long enough to say that it's also totally normal Through most of this year I've been averaging around $320 in sales, and these two months, combined, continue to bear that out.
The thing I want to say about my music licensing on Pond 5 for most of the second half of this year, though, is that it continues to passive income. I'm earning passive income licensing my music because I haven't been writing and recording new music for Pond 5.
Instead, I've been focused on a couple of really exciting licensing projects that I'm hoping to be able to share with you in the next month or two. But it would be a major step forward in my licensing career.Another cool thing that happened to me in September is that a filmmaker who used one of my songs in an indie short actually reached out to me and shared the finished product!
