A while back I said that we would be soon anouncing some distribution channels outside of iStock for music artists. In the same way that we now sell our SFX on Gettyimages.com and Apple. Now many of you can find your tracks on Royaltyfreemusic.com RFM has one of the best intelectual properties and gets a lot of traffic from internet searches. Some of you may know that RFM is owned by Getty, that means that we can put your music for sale there and you can maintin your exclusivity!


Right now we have launched with 100ish tracks, however expect that number to grow every month. Moving forward our artists will be the main force in pushing new content forward on RFM.

Yaaaayyyy!!!! Pure awesomeness!!! This is the news we were all waiting for
Thank you boys for spreading our work, you rock!

could we have some extra info Pug?
like:
are we credited as single artists or as a collective?
how do we find our own tunes in there?
how much do we earn?
ETA: will RFM sales be tracked under "G.I. Sales" like Getty's SFX?

As to your questions:



  • As of right now finding tracks there are difficult. We have a few sprinkled in amongst the rest. However we are working towards some changes there soon.
  • Tracks are not attributed to anyone on RFM
  • Earnings will be the same rate as with the GI.com SFX program 35%. We can only choose flat rates outside of iStock.
  • RFM will also be tracked under GI sales. We are still working on a reporting bug there, but soo you will get monthly updates.

Unforunatly there is likley not going to be a very good way to know what tracks have been uploaded. I am doing my best to find tracks that meet our criteria (quality, genre, & mood) and ensure that we do not overload with any 1 contributor. At this time the most any 1 person has is 3 tracks uploaded, but as time progresses this number will increase. 


For the time being we hope that you will trust that we are trying to collect content as fairly as possible while ensureing that we are focusing on the right quality level for the intended audience.

I remember we have such option "opt in into partner program".. It's somewhere in our account prefferences... It was not so important tick option as it was used for other media in this site.. Now when we have a partner program for audio, do we need to tick this option? I mean if we don't tick this option, we won't be submited to participate in this new opportunity?

according to what good bonesmear is telling us, you shouldn't have to change any settings, as all of our audio content is automatically eligible for being showcased on partner sites. The download stats for such "pp sales" should appear in the G.I. Sales page

1. What exactly does "stats from partner sites" page mean? Mine is empty.


2. Is "G.I. sales" page the statistics site for any download outside iStock?

Any sales from outside iStockphoto. This is also G.I. sales for audio.
