Michael provides consulting services to help you set up your own label and run it as a business. With the music industry changing so rapidly, independent/artist labels are in a very good position to take advantage of these changes.

Unfortunately, most new businesses will usually fail for the following reasons:

1. Lack of business or management experience.
2. Inefficient marketing.
3. Lack of information to make the right business decisions.

Michael will help you with business affairs, signing artists, preparing budgets and financial projections, distribution negotiations, and to understand profit and loss statements and cash flow.

Michael will work with you in structuring artist deals together with setting marketing budgets and calculating the number of shipments required to break even. This may be the most essential part of being a profitable and successful label. In addition, Michael will negotiate distribution deals which will give you the best chance at success.

For those who want to have their own publishing company, which we always recommend, Michael can handle the administration.

To assist in managing all aspects of having your own label, Michael has established a “Label Management Group”. You can find more information about our services on our Label Management Group page.
