What We Do


Music

From artist websites to company content management systems, from digital distribution to publishing. We have been involved with digital music since 1997 and worked with major labels, international artists, indies and booking agents. We have designed and built tour booking systems, supplied digital distribution software and launched multi-channel networks on YouTube. You could say we’re true all rounders when it comes to digital music.

Digital Marketing

We wrote the book on social media for musicians. No really, we did. It’s on Amazon for only 99p. We’ve been doing digital marketing in music for so long we’re now sometimes called “Pioneers”. We were behind Sony Music’s first ever webcast. We were the first people to ever advertise on Spotify. And we’re the only company to have presented the huge opportunities for music using NFC at MIDEM.

Education

We can provide tailored programmes, using our own Virtual Learning Environment, to provide your staff with training and education. Using a VLE we can provide you with assurance the course has been completed by staff to a high standard. Our courses also fulfil your company’s CPD requirements.



Our Services

Websites

Million has designed and built websites for ITB, Jamiroquai, The Prodigy, Global Gathering, Mama Group and Silverstone Classic. Our sites use contemporary design and the latest programming modules. We specialise in  mid-level sites.

Digital Distribution

We distribute music to the leading digital retailers. We also work with digital distribution platform, Audiosalad, to provide a self-managed distribution platform to leading independent labels.

Content Management Systems

We have designed, programmed and delivered content management systems that power company websites, from the venues of the Mama Group to the current booking system powering the ITB website.

Strategy

Many years of experience has taught us to appreciate this quote by Bill Gates; “We overestimate the effect of technology in 1 year, but underestimate the effect it will have in 10“. Our vision is always fixed firmly on the future and we have often found ourselves recommending ideas and technology that were several years away from being adopted by the mainstream. We can look at your company, whether it’s a label, an agency or a venue and create a strategy based upon the latest trends, technologies and your audience.

Consultancy

We can undertake projects and research to assist you in your digital strategy plans. Whether it’s advice about consumer trends, research on your competitors, a training seminar for your staff or a regular advisory session on new technology, you can remain informed and confident about your digital marketing plans.

Publishing

We publish a catalogue of music for commercial use in films, TV and advertising. Working with many of the world’s leading brands and media agencies we can supply music or arrange for original compositions.

Location Marketing

This emerging and exciting branch of marketing is still not fully understood by many in marketing. It’s ability to connect with people is so profound and powerful that it’s implications for marketing still need to be fully grasped. We can assist you through training, presentations and implementation of your initial campaigns.
