May 2017 stock music licensing earnings report

May 2017 was my best month licensing music. I earned more than $330 on my main licensing site, Pond 5. This is $30 more than my previous high, and I've basically earned more than $300 per month licensing music this entire year. 

I think this success selling music online is due to three main ​factors:

  1. Optimized pricing
  2. Highly refined keyword tagging strategies
  3. More songs​

It's taken me three years to get here, but I feel like my music licensing success is only going to go upward from here. (If you're interested in learning how to license your music I've got a free video telling you how to do it here).

What I earned licensing music on Pond 5 in May 2017

You can tell I had one huge sale for $70+ (thanks pricing) and also the most overall sales I've ever had (thanks keywords and tagging!)

Now I just need to keep doing what I'm doing and keep adding more songs. Onward to June! ​
