3 Reasons to Partner with a Content Licensing Agency

Published on 6/28/2017 by Adriana McGee

If you’re a publisher, you’re likely generating your current revenue the traditional way with newsstand sales, advertising and paid subscriptions. But have you considered other ways you could be generating an additional revenue stream?

In order to be truly successful, you must diversify your revenue. Think of content licensing as another piece of the puzzle.

What is Content Licensing?

Content licensing is the process of selling the use of your assets. Your logo, awards, reviews, pull quotes, reprints and e-prints are all valuable assets that you could be monetizing. Don’t believe us? According to Nielsen, earned media is the most trusted form of advertising.

Why Should I Partner with a Content Licensing Agency?
No upfront costs

1. No Upfront Costs

We know what you’re thinking: “When will I break even?” When you partner with us, you are profitable on the first sale.

If you’re still thinking of launching your own in-house content licensing program, consider the upfront investment in time, money and resources it will take before you break even.

Recruiting: Think of the time it will take to recruit, interview and onboard new employees. In order to find the right talent, will you need to outsource a recruiter or pay to sponsor your job postings?

Compensation: You will most likely need to hire around 4-5 people to manage your content licensing and pay them salary, commission and benefits. 

Training: The new employees will need to be trained by current employees, which will take time away from revenue generating opportunities.

Production costs: If you don’t have an in-house printer or design team, you will have to purchase these services as well.

Do yourself a favor and choose an agency who is knowledgeable in your industry and who specializes in content licensing.
