Last week we looked at reasons to sell your sound effects library on many websites. This week we'll look at why exclusivity or scarcity can be a good idea.
Selling on One or a Few Websites
- Higher royalty rate
Non-exclusive contracts are typical when partnering with downloadable sound effects websites today. Before 2005 exclusive contracts were more common. They offered an additional 10-15% on top of the regular royalty rate. A few websites still offer this option. If your library is large and has valuable sound effects, this can be a better route to follow.
Another option is to build your own website and collect 100% of every sale. Sounds great, doesn't it?
