On this Music Growth Talks episode, Mike Goudreau shares what he's learnt during the 10 years of hard music licensing work. We talk about non-exclusive vs. exclusive deals, finding good licensing companies, reaching out to music supervisors directly, creating a catalogue that doesn't get old, and much more.
