  • Who we are – Conquer is a turnkey solution meaning we have the system already set up, all you have to do is plug in! We strive to help an artist successfully operate their own independent label for the purpose of creating their product and brand and generating income. What we do – we provide an alternative label solution by giving you a complete system – a custom all-in-one site, training and tools on your UnLabel, and a person to work with (known as a Certified Artist Developer) to help you reach your career goals.
  • Conquer is not a major or independent label; we are an entertainment company. We are also not an advance meaning we do not give loans (advances) out to artists (or anyone for that matter). Lastly, we are not a management company. Yes, we help you by giving you the tools, training, and industry services (such as mixing/mastering, recording, video production and more), however we do not manage you – we do not take a percentage of your income or do any of the typical managerial duties.
  • The concept of Conquer Entertainment has been around since 2006; before Myspace, Reverbnation, and even iTunes. We began as a service provider for the independent artist, selling various artist-centric packages to help them build their brand – press kit, graphic design, and website design bundles, to name a few. After seeing the power of Market America’s UnFranchise business system, the distributor’s ability to sell products to the end consumer, and and how it integrated perfectly into an artist’s career at the time, we began working on a partnership with Market America. We completed that partnership in 2009, and in 2010, Market America partnered with to add to their already diverse product selections – also a huge benefit for an artist who chooses to endorse products through their brand. 2010 also marked the first beta site of Conquer Ent since the 2009 partnership. In 2011, Conquer launched the beta site on a new domain – (replacing MaMyworld), and since the launch we have had hundreds of artists join. The first quarter of 2013, Conquer will – this time it will be official
  • So how does Conquer benefit you as an artist? By using our tools and CADs, you can get the most out of your artist brand and build an independent career. By tapping into the existing pool of products (and promote as you would an endorsement), you can grow your brand and fanbase, and use the digital trend to market your custom site and UnLabel business.
  • Conquer can help you develop and diversify your brand to the fullest with the help of a certified music mentor known as a Certified Artist Developer.
  • WithConquer’s partnership with, artists have the ability to expand their brand simply from buying from themselves. has thousands of diverse products and well known partner products that people use on a daily basis – i.e. Walmart, BestBuy, Kohls, Musicians Friend, Guitar Center, and more! This all can grow an artist’s music career by helping to diversify their overall “brand image”.
  • Conquer provides UnLabel owners a special manual to instruct them on how to exactly build your music career with Conquer, how to capitalize on the digital market, and how to gain the most out of a small fan base through one to one marketing and social networking.
  • Here is a hypothetical snapshot of the average artist’s “brain path” of their own music career. This is simply an EXAMPLE. The average musician spends 50% of their time creating and promoting their recent music/songs/downloads, 20% of their time on marketing merchandise (such as t-shirts, stickers, demos), 20% of their time performing at local events, dive bars, etc., 5% of their time updating only ONE or TWO social networks (i.e. Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, LinkedIn), and 5% of their time on building a solid fanbase. This way of doing things as a musician will not accomplish the musician’s overall goal – to become a success, you must interact with your fans at least 30% of the time, through social media at least 20% of the time, promote your latest music to that solid fanbase 30 % of the time, perform once you have a demand in a market with fans 10% of the time, and market merchandise online and at your shows 10%. Having an UnLabel will help an artist gain control of their own music career – instead of just operating “blind”.
  • Here is a hypothetical snapshot of the SUCCESSFUL artist’s “brain path” of their own music career. This is simply an EXAMPLE. The successful musician spends 50% of their time interacting and investing in their fanbase, 20% of their time on making music (and collaborations if applicable), 20% of their time on social media (continuing fan interaction), 5% of their time performing live shows, and 5% on designing/selling merchandise they know there’s a demand for (because they have a connection with their fans).
  • If an artist is looking to become a success by “getting signed”, the “Label way” is one of the most complicated ways to do so. You must practically be a success already – have a huge online following, video views in the hundreds of thousands, constantly sell out every show you perform, and have an established “brand image”. Labels are no longer “developing” artists, therefore you must already be “developed” in order to even be considered.
  • If an artist is looking to “go independent” and do it on their own, it is possible, but takes a lot of connections, experience, and knowhow to get started and maintain that success. Also, essentially you are “signed to yourself” – which means the artist wears all the hats; the manager, producer, booking agent, press, etc. It takes a lot of patience (and money) to make a music career a success.
  • The average income of an musician is $34,455 annually. To establish a career independently takes at least $50,000 (and that’s just at the “local” level), for album expenses, show expenses, merchandising expenses, and any other services the artist may need to grow.
  • Now after reviewing the information above, ask yourself where do you see yourself in 5 years? 10 years? Do you see yourself as a worldwide success? A local success? Or still stuck in the same place? Now ask yourself, how to I achieve success without a label (indie or major), and what am I doing right now to achieve my goals? IS IT WORKING?
  • The UnLabel System provides an artist TWO ways to earn an income – through whole sale profit (sales of your own music and merchandise online to your fanbase), and commissions (by endorsing products you like and sharing it with your fanbase).
  • The UnLabel is designed “with the artist in mind” – what does that mean? When you participate in the UnLabel program, you receive a step-by-step manual and guide to learn how to grow your career through the use of Conquer and your CAD, an UnLabel Admin to manage and customize your site, and ability to choose from industry-standard and label-quality services such as recording, mixing & mastering, video production and more!
  • The UnLabel provides an artist with a “turn key method” – meaning all the artist has to do is “plug them selves in” to the system already in place and start learning how to build their brand effectively online – through branding, lifestyle merchandising, networking, and one-to-one fan marketing.
  • Conquer features a diverse mix of artists, genres, and artist brands that are the next mainstream success stories. Why not you!?
  • The custom getConquer music site enables an UnLabel owner to feature their latest music, photos, Youtube videos, social sites, and products all in one place with their own custom domain name. Additionally, an UnLabel owner can manage everything easily through the Artist Admin tool.
  • An UnLabel owner can also use’s national press for their own credibility.
  • As an UnLabel owner, you have the potential to earn income in multiple ways – through personal sales of your music (direct wholesale profit), CAD sales of your music and merchandise (wholesale profit & points which will be discussed later), and fans sharing/referring your music to others (direct wholesale profits and points).
  • As a musician, you have what’s called “collective buying power” – meaning you can capitalize on your fanbase by sharing what you wear, where you shop, what you use, through social media. You can turn your “average fans” into “die-hard fans” by sharing and directing them where to get your “favorites”– on your custom getConquer site!
  • You can expand your brand easily by simply sharing with your fanbase what you use and where you shop and have them buy from you! There’s four simple steps to do this.
