A Way to get Connected with other businesses who want to work with you!!

The SIC-Code listing of Businesses Relevant to the Music Business
[as compiled by Terry Leigh Britton, 1997]

This listing can serve as both an inspiration, and as a way to connect with those business in your area and beyond who might be able to provide what you need to expand your operations!

SIC Codes for Businesses Relevant to the Music Business -- and YOUR business!

Every library nowadays has a listing of local and statewide companies arranged by their SIC code numbers. Each type of service has its own code number, so some companies will have listings in a number of locations as a consequence. Nothing wrong with diversity! I have gone over these listings with a fine tooth comb and have gleaned what I believe is a list of companies that a musician or composer or producer or record company or whatever the heck you do in the music business could benefit from knowing about and/or being able to contact. Several national and international company registers, including some on CD-ROM in many libraries, utilize this codification scheme. So, if you spot a type of company that you would like to work with and you want to discover who in your area does that sort of thing, these SIC numbers will come in very useful!

Aside from their obvious usefulness in locating companies to work with (or for), these lists might also provide a bit of inspiration for you, and help you to diversify your business dealings, which may earn you more money doing what you love! So, go over them with an open mind. Peruse! Explore! Something may gel -- you just never know!



THE LISTINGS

I have four versions of the same listings here. The first one is sorted by the general type of music- business endeavor you may be trying to improve upon, and is less comprehensive than the other three lists, but more focused. That is followed by a listing arranged by the numbers, which has everything. Added to that set is a set called Special Groupings: Press with press, radio with radio, etc.Then, an alphabetically sorted version of the same follows at the end. Print out and use all four for most potent effect. You are free to distribute these in any way you desire. If you make money doing so... keep it! This is a freebie, so make the most of it, and may you enjoy the success you deserve!.
