If you’re a songwriter, or lyric writer, your first goal should be to get with a music publisher who likes what you do. It can be the most important part of a writer’s success.

A quick background on song publishers:
Sometimes called song publishers, sometimes music publishers, or simply publishers they’re at the heart of getting things done in the music industry.
Finding great songs is job one for publishers.
Song publishers are the ones who come up with the hit songs that top artists record and the music you hear in TV shows and movies. To do that, many of them hire full-time staff writers to turn out song after song. Some publishers may issue single-song contracts to different songwriters. Either way, they’re acquiring the rights to songs they believe have potential so they can present, or “pitch” them to recording artists, producers and A&R execs in the hope of getting them recorded, or “cut.” To get the pitching job done, publishers hire song pluggers, who operate much as sales people, to advance the publisher’s catalog of songs in the music industry.
Let’s say a song has been pitched and accepted. Good! But here’s the tough work:
When a song is accepted and recorded, a record label, the process has just started for the publisher. First a license must ne issued. Then the duties turn to administration: doing all the work necessary to make sure correct royalty payments are received from record labels and performance royalty organizations (ASCAP, BMI & SESAC in the U.S., plus the many other royalty collection organizations throughout the world).
Film and TV can be a very important part of a song’s success.
Placing songs into movies, television, commercials and games -is a big thing these days. It all goes together to maximize a song’s potential.
