Once you've set up your own publishing company, further premium services can be offered to you, including our record company label management service.
Step 1 We offer an advisory service to you, to evaluate your proposed release, and let you know whether we feel that the material is at the standard required for release. Your release will be evaluated by experienced music industry professionals, who will provide feedback to you. This service is offered at a cost of £100 (plus VAT were applicable), and this fee will then be deducted from the cost of the record company service, if you proceed to step 2.
Step 2 We will set up a release schedule for you, and advise you on the next step in releasing your record. This includes helping you arrange the technical aspects you may need, from mastering, through graphic design and artwork to manufacturing, to get you to the point that you can physically release a CD
Step 3 We organise all the relevant registrations and paperwork for you, including the distribution. Our associate partner has worldwide and digital distribution with some of the biggest companies in the world, including Universal, Bertus, NMD, PHD and the Orchard, so you can potentially get sales through all the major retailers, on line, in store, and by download, (such as Amazon, HMV, Saturn and iTunes)
Step 5 Your record is in the stores.
In the music industry, a music publisher (or publishing company) is responsible for ensuring the songwriters and composers receive payment when their compositions are used commercially. Through an agreement called a publishing contract, a songwriter or composer "assigns" the copyright of their composition to a publishing company. In return, the company licenses compositions, helps monitor where compositions are used, collects royalties and distributes them to the composers. They also secure commissions for music and promote existing compositions to recording artists, film and television.
