Big Deals

Heavy hitters.

How have you approached getting BIG deals with production companies, TV networks, music libraries, etc?

Talking 100, 200, 500, 1000 track deals.

I've gotten a few of these but nothing crazy. More seems like the way to go.

1000 track deals? You mean 100,000 track deals. When you have the content the networks and streaming services are willing and eager to wheel and deal with you. From my experiences the big production companies and networks are not going to do any sort of "big" deal with you if you only do 100, 200, 500, or 1000 tracks. They will set you up for needle drop and put you in the system as a boutique catalog. But you aren't going to get much traction. The minimum I've seen for this is usually around 350~500 tracks. Also for them it isn't just about how many tracks you have, but how many tracks/albums you will be continuing to produce every year. If you have 500 tracks (roughly 50 albums) but you are only going to be releasing 20 tracks (2 albums) a year... they probably just say thanks but no thanks.
