UK Based Distribution Company Ditto Selling Record Label in a Box
24 August 2015
Digital music distribution company Ditto condenses the music industry into one conveniently proportioned package in their new product/service – Record Label In A Box.
The service is not available in India (yet) but we thought it was interesting enough to share anyway.
Record Label in A Box comes in 4 options - Basic, Premium, Professional and Enterprise. What Ditto does for you, essentially, is all the dirty admin and paper work you need to kick things off, i.e. even their most basic package includes complete start up paper work, label certification and free distribution.
Depending on the price you’re willing to pay, the company is also willing to include extra goodies and services including (but not limited to) providing free domain names, a custom journal, access to start-up-loans and, if you’re willing to cough up a modest £3,499 or 3,65,371 INR, a fully customised website, 12 month “mentoring program” and full PR or social media campaign.
Much to our disappointment however, Ditto does not provide any real music in in their boxes. Maybe Recod Label In A Box 2.0 will come with a couple of musicians stuffed inside too (customised to your label, of course).
The other option in running your own label is to live up to being truly independent and just do it yourself. Once you’ve managed all the paperwork, you can put it in a box and achieve the same goal for a lot less money.
