Quite Great music promotions for the UK also is happy to provide these services to labels and marketing companies.  We help companies that may describe themselves as music marketing or music promotions companies as they outsource their business and don't  have a full promotions team in house covering radio, press, online and tv, as we do. So we actually staff projects that other companies you may come across when searching for music pr, music marketing etc on Google say they do. They ask us to help promote across all levels of radio, online, press and TV platforms depending on what is needed and then add a % on top whilst aiming to do deals with pr and promo teams who have the staff to do the job. Some companies run their campaigns as one off hit outs to a mailing list and don't have a relationship with key media outlets that real pr companies should have, ge aware that  we spend every day of every week building relationships. Working with these types pr companies who outsource to the likes of Quite Great, as mentioned you may have already come across on Google, and means that you will end up paying more to implement release strategies over an agreed period. Hence the Quite Great team act as a One Stop Shop for all your label and marketing needs, and we end up working numerous releases in line with our development programme we offer to labels and artists whereby they work and develop with our in house team of professionals. The likes of Warners strategic marketing, the catalogue division and compilations side of Sony and Universal have also used the promotional team we offer to act as an all encompassing service, but music marketing agencies tend to find the service most appropriate.

Labels and marketing companies for music in the UK will often approach us and outsource as it gives them a built in integrated promotional team of professionals and allows the individuals who generally run these types of companies to keep costs tight , we are proud to have worked in the past also with the likes of Autonomy Music Marketing who again have outsourced to our pr team , so if you are looking for promotion and have your marketing team set up or you are a marketing company then it need not clash withWWW.QUITEGREATMUSICMARKETINGUK.COM our own music marketing brand that helps artists , especially those outside the UK to market music in the UK with our team helping from the first stage of bringing in frontline producers through to registering isrc codes to design and finally the promotion which with the likes of the amazing Si Cranstoun can end up signing to a major label , in Si’s case Warners.

Creating a tailored campaign can be crucial to the success and development of your band or label artists therefore working with a team who have all the marketing and promotional services under one roof like Quite Great, can solve a great many problems but as mentioned we are only to happy to act as the unseen service for music marketing companies and also act as part of the team covering one or more services for releases.
