A record label helps in the promotion and marketing of an artist’s work.

They have links with prominent marketers and the connection with relevant brands to help an artist gain publicity.

Record labels are also involved in the scouting and breeding of talents.

If they aren’t scouting, they’re breeding the ones they’ve got already.

This helps an artist establish a firm standing in the industry.

Furthermore, record labels are involved in the copyrights of an artist.
