How It Works
A bespoke music marketing service
Before you even start to think about promoting your music, we can work with you on all levels of your media profile, creating a bespoke campaign based on your needs and budget.
Generally we run our campaigns in ten week patterns, which would be structured around a single, ep or album release. We would work with you to then build up media coverage, discuss how this was impacting on social networking with views, likes etc. and create a campaign that allows us to build from the ground up. Or if you are an artist who already has a strong following, then we would work with you to build the momentum for that all important breakthrough release that can have major labels contacting you.
Everything is structured around you and your needs. You may need to get your promotional CD’s designed correctly, you may be completely confused by social networking and need our guys to help you set up your Soundcloud or Facebook account. We can even help you with your photos and as the Quite Great promotional team take you through the release periods, we can also offer a service whereby we can represent you in meetings with publishing contacts and label contacts.

DIY Music Marketing
The Quite Great Label Services allows you to create in simple terms your own DIY record label, we will look at a business model that works for you, and help you to create a flexible plan that fits your needs.
The structure of the campaign is aimed at artists who are building their brand and recognise that they need a series of experts helping to cover different media areas and to act as a functional and effective marketing base in the UK, hence we allow the artist to develop with a series of releases when required or a one off to test the water if that is what you feel fits, in line with a budget that works for you and allows you to look to the future.
This is exactly how labels used to work where the artist is able to breathe and grow. The plan can adapt to help us expand our role but you are at the helm with us, bringing in a team member at agreed stages during the ten week period, which we find is the ideal period to fit in a release. With this campaign, you are the boss and you make the decisions and guide the team. Hence as stated, you are the label Head and artist.
Please be clear this is a cost effective way to agree a fee per week over a period to fit your budget relating to an 8 or 10 week time frame, but it is also a way to introduce you and gain real results to then set the scene for the next release period when the focus will be more defined.
