As a songwriter, you should be spending your time doing what you are great at, and that is writing music. Let a professional handle your business needs. Assigning the copyrighting of your song to a publishing administrator will make life in the music industry much easier for you.
When you sign a deal with a publisher they are obligated to:
find song users.
issue licenses to song users.
pay you (the writer).
A Business Professional Worth Having
Usually the publisher splits all the income 50/50 with the writer, unless it is the profits from your sheet music and performances. The half that the publisher keeps covers their profit, office staff, etc. In the music industry this is known as the publisher’s share; and the money you collect is, of course, called the writer’s share.
