Limited Run

How do I set up a record company?

Ok, I asked this question an hour ago and got a lot of know-all answers from people who obviously had their patronizing hats on.

What I'm looking for is a few do's and don'ts from people who might have some real experience in this field. I have a LOT of experience dealing with the Japanese industry, having lived here and worked as a promoter for 6 years.

There are three bands I want to work with. I'm looking to sell a limited run of CDs, but largely work by selling and promoting their mp3s online. Has anyone done anything similar? Was there anything you felt you'd change if you were to do it again?

I've got a few, but I don't know how much help it will be:

1. Don't work with bands that aren't going to work their arses off for you, expect them to do a minimum of 2/300 days touring a year, they should be prepared to support any band and anywhere (within reason and budget), if not they aren't going to have an audience big enough to sell stuff too

2. Be prepared to give away a lot more than you sell, particularly MP3's by small, underground acts - folk will buy them but you'll probably need to put the best part of an album and some good full length samples from others to drum up interest

3. Don't just spam forums dealing with that type of music to drum up interest, contribute normally and usefully to other threads and have a link from your own description to your site

4. Look at merchandise to make up the money you won't be earning from music sales - in the long run T-Shirts etc. will be the most profitable line for you

Hope that's of some use, sorry if it wasn't. Good luck.
