With VEVO, your video will be placed on a VEVO branded artist YouTube channel.
With your music video being a part of VEVO’s catalogue, it has the potential to be placed on VEVO YouTube featured playlists to get more exposure.
Having a VEVO branded YouTube channel will also add some verification that you or your artist is on the same level as mainstream artists.
No. VEVO channels do not work like regular YouTube channels.
VEVO channels are managed by VEVO personnel and we, distributors, only get access to a limited tool that allows us to upload videos and edit metadata.
There are no login credentials to access the channels. This applies not only to us, but to any distributors capable of delivering videos to VEVO.
1710Media can make changes and updates to your video and channel info on your behalf as an approved distributor to VEVO. We can make changes to items like:
-Artist profile photo
-Social Media Links
All of these can be requested by sending an email to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Yes. If you already have a VEVO channel, created by a record label or another distributor, we are capable of delivering videos to VEVO.
The channel belongs to the artist, not to the label or company who created it. This means that, if we create a channel for you, and in the future you sign a record deal with a label or change distributors, they will be able to send videos to the channel created by us.
We would get information and reports on the videos we administer, and the other labels/distributors would get information on the videos they administer.
Video Distribution clients have their videos monetized on VEVO, iTunes, Amazon, Facebook and Tidal.
Any other channels that provide ad based streams and/or royalties are accounted.
We pay out quarterly for partners that have reported and paid us royalties. No threshold, we pay you no matter how little.
We are not privy to the information on how much VEVO pays per stream or how they calculate their royalties. For example, they could pay differently based on how much advertiser revenue is being paid into VEVO and whatever interaction the user has with that ad while your content is playing. So there is no defined pay rate that we can specify.
VEVO also needs to verify actual plays, meaning the video has to be watched for more than roughly 50% and the views needs to come from an actual user and not a bot that is being used to “juice” the VEVO views. This is heavily frowned upon and VEVO has removed content before when they have ascertained that views are fraudulent.
But rest assured that every stream deemed a successful one from the partner level is paid.
On your video’s release day, we will add it to our playlist on our YouTube page. We may also add a client’s videos to our social rotations on Twitter, instagram and Facebook and tag the artist to help gain exposure. Your video will also appear on the 1710Media blog.
