Read what our clients say:
“Most people don't really understand how it works, [but] this is the best service around! And I'm saying this because I've used it and gotten three deals from it. What happens is, let's say you were a Hip-Hop artist and you were looking to get a placement in a Movie Soundtrack. For a minimum monthly fee Hire A Consultant would actually track down all the hottest movie soundtracks that are slated for release and that are looking for Hip-Hop songs and give you the direct information to get your music to the people that cut the contracts. Now...here's something you may not know...”
In most cases, and depending on the style of music and your goals, you receive leads weekly. You can always be assured that the packages you send from the leads provided will be opened and listened to. They will NOT be considered as unsolicited.
And as a Hire a Consultant client, you keep 100% of the money you receive from all deals you accept. We never take a commission during the Trial Period.
The monthly retainer fee you are charged covers our team’s time and expertise in providing you advice, opportunities and contacts from around the world. We provide you with all the information and tools you’ll need to score deals. Then it’s up to you to take full advantage of the music leads we give you. You are responsible for sending your music to these contacts by the deadline, if a due date is designated. Some opportunities are open-ended and may not have a deadline.
Plus, all the information on these key decision-makers you receive from us—contact names, what kind of music they like, phone numbers and e-mail addresses—is yours to keep for future use. In other words, we also give you the opportunity to build up your own contact list.
We work in 30-day periods. If you want to terminate our services you can do so by providing us with a 30-day advance notice via email during the last week of any 30-day period. Once you do this, your final payment is due and you continue to receive our services during these final 30 days.
If you secure a deal with a reasonable financial offer while working with Hire a Consultant, you have the option to end our fee-based service and negotiate, in good faith, a percentage-based agreement with our parent company Countdown Entertainment.
This service is not open to everyone. And there is usually a waiting list since we try to limit the number of Hire a Consultant clients to just four. That’s so you get the time and attention you deserve.
