We've recognised artist, clients and business intermediaries approach us from all angles and require a vast range of options to suit different booking options and scenarios. We've categorised these into a Deal Code system so we can recognise and respond to these requirements more quickly and effectively. This allows us and our clients a greater degree of flexibility in terms of how we do business.
Deal Codes #1 - #3 are the most frequent and integral to our business. These are, to a certain extent, dictated by who shoulders most of the Risk Factor (the client, the agent, the label).
Deal Codes #4 - #5 are peripheral and a rarity. Deal Code #6 is an elusive, paradoxical deal code for people like Tim @ EM Agency who want the world for nothing.
Deal Code #1: Guarantee / Commercial
