ASCAP has a really good article on this:

CD Baby and Tunecore both offer sync licensing now as a part of their service too. Everything is pre-cleared and you have no say in what projects your music goes into, but it's probably the easiest way to get your music out there.

Here is the article explaining CD Baby's licensing, which even allows you to get paid when your music is used on YouTube:

I don't actively create music to be published, I focus more on the marketing aspect of things. However, I wouldn't say that any service is going to give you a better chance than another. There are thousands of musicians who are attempting to do the same thing, and unless you're an extremely well known composer your odds are just as good as anyone else's using any platform.

If you can afford it, I would use both. Perhaps that will increase the amount of ears that get to listen to your music. Physically sending your music to the supervisors that were mentioned in the ASCAP article will benefit you as well.

I use a site called audiosparx for this, your music gets prescreened, and after that you just upload whatever songs you like. Best of all, its free. I use it as a small extra revenue source, making an extra $300-$400 a year with it, but this year is gonna be better as I've hit $300 and its only february! good luck!

Here's a podcast from cdbaby that really dives into the process: http://cdbabypodcast...ube-and-beyond/

Paul Anthony from Rumblefish is the guest. http://rumblefish.com/

http://audiosocket.com/ is another service.
