Now, Let's Talk About Your Clients

Understanding Your business

To better tailor our partnership to your needs, we'd like to learn more about your clients and the catalogue you manage. This information will help us ensure our services align perfectly with your distribution goals and the variety of artists and labels you represent.

Please share details about your clients and the scope of your catalogue in the following sections.

We understand that every distribution company, whether in its inception or growth phase, has unique needs and considerations. Our services are designed to provide comprehensive support and value, tailored to the scale and scope of your catalogue and client base.

We recognize that our pricing structure may be more aligned with the needs of companies that already have an established client base. However, we believe in the potential of every music distributor, regardless of size. If you are just starting out and currently without clients, we would still love the opportunity to discuss how we can support your growth and help you build a successful distribution network.

Now, Let's Talk About Your Music Business Experience

You're new to working with music distribution companies? While entering the music distribution field can seem daunting—given its complexity and the legal intricacies involved—we want you to know that you're not alone. The industry does have its challenges, including legal disputes which are not uncommon, but this shouldn't deter you.

We're committed to making this journey as smooth and successful as possible for you. Our experienced team is here to provide comprehensive training on the ins and outs of music distribution. We'll guide you through the complexities, ensuring you're well-prepared to navigate this exciting industry.

Should you prefer to focus your efforts on other areas like marketing or video production, we offer specialized services to manage your music distribution needs for an additional fee. This allows you to dedicate your time and resources to what you do best, while we take care of ensuring your music reaches the widest possible audience.

Navigating the requirements of Digital Service Providers (DSPs) like Spotify and Apple Music can be complex. Each DSP demands specific standards for releases, making distribution a meticulous task.

As a white-label service, BDM handles these intricacies for you. We manage the compliance and delivery process to DSPs, ensuring each release meets their unique requirements. This allows you to focus on growing your business without the operational complexities of direct music distribution.

With BDM, you're freed from the detailed work of DSP compliance, enabling you to concentrate on your core activities and brand expansion. Our expertise guarantees that your music reaches its audience efficiently and effectively.
