How best to contact record labels and what should I include in the E-mail?Print
Contacting record labels is part of the everyday life of a DJ. Not only contacting them, but also getting declined and rarely accepted. If accepted it's usually to their last choice of music label.
So, how should you go about contacting record companies?
It's best to contact these establishments by E-mail. E-mail is very trustworthy and is reflected by some time reviewing them. You have to understand that these music labels receive tens if not hundreds of release requests a day. Your aim is then to stand out from the masses.
You should always look at it from a business point of view, what can you offer a successful record company?
Do you have a large following? If so, then don't hide it. Let the record labels know that with one Facebook post or newsletter, hundreds of people will flock to buy the track.
Are you regularly traveling and hence able to physically promote your music and releases? If you are a regular DJ in a location and have influence around there, perhaps a branch of the record label could be interested. Let them know this info and be detailed about it. Connections get you far in this world.
