Are you planning ahead? If not, you need to be. Here’s why…

Plan Your Release Dates Carefully

Plan Your Release Dates Carefully

Whether you are in January or in April, make sure that your record label continues to grow!

Here in the UK, if the university market is your target audience, then you need to organise your releases according to their schedule. Most students are studying for around 8 months in a year (as the rest of the time they are partying :-)! You will need to plan your releases to fit those time lines.

You need to know your target markets timetable to effectively schedule your releases. This will enable you to release in a timely manner while staying flexible to adjust schedules when needed. So, be in-tuned to the patterns and behaviours of your audience.

The best way to make sure that you can get your record label going and keeping it up to date is by planning ahead. In business, this is known as forecasting. You will want to project what you want to achieve with the next month, 3 months, 6 months and year. By doing this, you will know exactly where you stand with other label competition and with your labels finances.

While you are forecasting what you want to do, make sure that you include new projects to develop, old projects to maintain and developments that you want to arise with the business as a whole. These three areas will bring you in more prosperity and opportunity.

Stay tuned! We will be bringing you more tips on how to set up your record label to thrive!
