How is S&O different from other labels/ companies?
Sufferings and Offerings Music was born from a vision. A vision of a better tomorrow. We were born from and molded by human suffering. Our products are stories for the senses. We have invested in technology and recruitment to deliver campaigns that builds fans and engagement along with streams to generate revenue from the outset. Success is all about growing your own direct fanbase, which you can then use to build a campaign to deliver content to. We have the knowledge, team, and tools necessary to accomplish the goals of the Artist. There are four core areas we combine in a campaign to deliver fan growth and income; Playlists, Influencers, Sync, and Touring. We then utilise the traditional methods such as radio, TV and press to add to our results at the right time.
The Sufferings and Offerings core team includes A&R, Social media managers, playlisters, influencers, sync, marketing, sales, accounts and legal, expanding significantly since our launch in 2017.
Our team have the ability to reach out to people and brands globally with influence across all social media. If we can promote your track to people who like you with a reach of millions it can add significant results to a campaign with plays, posts, reach, stats and ultimately chart positions.
Our campaign managers work closely with the artist to develop fan bases across targeted territories building up to a national then international touring platform. By using our algorithms to calculate potential audiences we then achieve a realistic approach to selling out shows and if you are gaining millions of plays and sold out shows, the attention of both fans and media are increased.
