In this article we are going to review the Best Record Labels For New Artists
Looking at 5 recording companies in South Africa
Which record label do you prefer?
a studio record label is is a company that signs on & manages artists ( musicians ). They take care of aspects relating to the releasing of songs by the singers.
to get a record deal one must create a demo. A demo is a cd much like a CV in the corporate world. The demo CD contains songs. The songs are to be ones own work.
to run a studio record label one must have excellent management skills. You must have the know-how pertaining to the music industry.
you can become an owner of a studio record label by
knowing someone in the company is always the easiest way to approach the right people in the studio record label through referral.
if you do not know anyone on the the other hand, the second best approach would be to wait to get noticed as there are scouts on the look out for new talent all the time.
create YouTube videos and post them on your channel. Share the channel with friends and family and ask that they help you discribute it online.
source employee monitoring software like the one sold by http://swiftmobilespy.co.za/ a mobile spy app that should be installed on all studio record Label company phones.
There has been a little bruh ha ha about one particle part of my first post on starting a recording company, particularly the use of recording studio employee monitoring software that we mentioned, though the objection was not on the company but the practice itself so I thought it fitting to post this video I found of theirs explaining how this is all legal in South Africa otherwise they wouldn’t be in business competing with a few others offering a similar service.
Rememeber that you have to inform the employees either in writing on a contract or virbally.
Yay or Nah? Give us your thoughts
It is possible for a record company to also be a publisher, though the size of the business will play a major factor as the recording & publishing side of the business will have to be run separately in terms of staff and management.
There is no industry standard on the percentage from artist royalties that one record company can claim, therefore it is difficult to tell you how much a recording company actually makes.
Record companies manage articles (Singer/Performers/Dancers) and take care of the advertising/promotion, recording & writing of songs or choreographing dance moves.
A record company makes money by taking a percentage of the artists performance booking fees & royalties from the multimedia that is sold in the artists name.
Though not ethical, most companies offer cell phones to their artists & employees fitted with a mobile spy phone software like this one http://swiftmobilespy.co.za/ which helps them not only remotely listen to phone calls but also track their location. If you go this route it is important to note that you have to inform all parties of the presence of the software on the phone and make sure they understand your purpose of using it.
