As songwriters, we should be as competent in writing songs for hire as we are writing our own material. That is the "craft" of songwriting. Applying tools, techniques and tricks to our songwriting, we are able to write on demand. This is the foundation places like; Tin Pan Alley / NYC, Brill Building / NYC, Motown-Tamla / Detroit were built on.
Aside from writing our own songs, a big part of our business is what we refer to as: Non-Traditional Revenue Streams / Works for Hire / Custom Songs. This type of craft writing has a lot of potential for income, as they not only pay well per song, but they are impactful, and open the door to provide the client other services.
