The first step in getting your business in order is to ensure you are registered with a PRO (Performing Rights Organization). In the US there are 3. ASCAP, BMI, and SESAC. ASCAP and BMI are non-profit organizations. SESAC is a private company and requires an invitation to join.
Red Arrow will register you as a writer and a publisher with either ASCAP or BMI (your choice). This is an absolute requirement to get your business in order. We will also register up to 15 songs from your catalog with the PRO you choose to join.
Our fee for this service is $60. You will be responsible for all fees required as part of joining a PRO and getting your songs registered. Depending on which PRO you choose, this fee would be either $100 or $150. Those numbers reflect joining both as a writer and a publisher. There are times when joining only as a writer is appropriate and in those cases there could be no fees at all. We will help you make the right decision and then do it for you.
