We’ve all heard commercial jingles. That distinct sound of McDonalds, “You deserve a break today” or the Kentucky Fried Chicken, “Finger Lickin’ Good”… Almost all major companies have a jingle to identify with. So why don’t smaller companies?  I’ve been thinking a lot about that lately. I mean after all what part of a jingle is NOT part of a Company’s Brand? So, since I ask clients ever day…What is your company’s brand???

So as the sun peeked through the office window bringing the mid-fall-day warmth to my face I thought I’d touch on how to develop your company’s brand for a second or two this afternoon. Well, there is also the fact that I spoke with Bob Crawford, a musician that does exactly that, writes music for companies to use to promote their business and develop their Company Brand.

A song or a jingle is always a nice touch. Can you afford it is usually the question that first comes to mind. Well the way the music industry works you may very well be able to have you very own song or jingle developed for your company.

So without further ado…Meet Bob Crawford…Bob is President of RMCO Music/BMI currently residing in the ccity si nice they named it twice…New York, New York.

You can find some information on Bob hereand here….well here’s another link too

When asked about costs. Depends…there are always variables but the basic fee structure is one that consists of a flat fee and royalty…Bob is registered with BMI. For those of you that are not familiar with how music works..Unless you purchase ALL the rights to a piece of music…for example if you buy the “rights” to your favorite song, Jingle Bells…anyone using the song other than “Listening pleasure” you must pay a fee for the “right to use” the song in your commercial…There are more in depths do’s and don’t’s in owning the rights to a piece of music. But that is the basics. If someone owns a piece of music they will always make revenues on it…

Here are the basic fees;

Radio Promo
Local $98.00
Regional (generally five states) $180.00
National $252.00

So the royalty…all depends on the negotiations.

So if you have been wondering about a Jingle to help develop your Company Brand give Bob a call and see what you can work out…

Until Next Time…
