We help you get more from YouTube.
We've partnered with INDMUSIC, YouTube's largest independent music network and a YouTube
Certified partner, to help you earn the most money from your YouTube views. Here's how:
Highest Artist Payout
Keep 90% of all royalties earned from your composition and 80% of all royalties
earned from your sound recording when others use your music in YouTube
videos and on your own YouTube channel.
When you set your YouTube preferences, you can choose to exclude (whitelist) your own channel from being monetized by TuneCore and if you choose this, you will keep 100% of the royalties from your own YouTube channel.
Maximum YouTube Monetization
We can collect the most money since we administer both rights, with TuneCore administering the composition and INDMUSIC managing the sound recording on behalf of TuneCore.
YouTube Earnings Optimization
Our tools find the most YouTube videos that contain your music, so you'll get more money, faster.

How do I get started?It's easy... and you may already be doing some of these!
- Distribute your music with TuneCore
- Get a TuneCore Publishing Deal…YouTube monetization is automatically included!
Set your YouTube preferences…Tell us your YouTube channel. As part of your Publishing Administration
agreement, we will automatically administer your composition and sound recording rights on YouTube, on your
YouTube channel and when other people use your music in their YouTube videos. When you set your YouTube
preferences, you can choose to exclude (whitelist) your own channel from being monetized by TuneCore.
If you do not exclude your YouTube channel, then you can choose to opt-in to the INDMUSIC Multi-Channel
Network. Refer here to find out what it means to “whitelist” your channel.
How much will this cost me?
Publishing deal including YouTube monetization: $75 one-time setup fee. If you've already signed a publishing deal with TuneCore, YouTube monetization is automatically included at no additional cost.
