"Nick and The Label Machine were invaluable in helping navigate the very daunting task of setting up a record label from scratch. Without their vast inside knowledge of what's required and clear guidance throughout, I know that setting up and more importantly running my own record label would have been a much much harder task."
The blueprints are made-up of step-by-step practical guides, with hours of easy-to-follow tutorial videos that cover the four main phases of setting up a record label; planning, building, running, and growing.
Multiple checklists and templates used for creating schedules essential for running a record label and releasing music, including; marketing and PR schedules, marketing assets release schedule checklist, DJ promo and PR one sheet templates.
Post any questions you have and get advice, support and feedback from the community. We also have a private mentoring section in the community, where you can get private support and feedback from just Nick and the team.
Record label contract templates that include step-by-step guides on what each clause means and which sections you need to edit for your own record label. Includes: recording contract, remix contract and design contract templates.
Our full blog directories include names, email addresses and blog websites, with submission details that cover the following genres: Electronic, Folk, Country, Rock and Metal, Indie, Pop, Rap, Hip Hop and Funk.
