The business model of The Recording Artists Guild is simply to prosper as our members do. Acting as a consultant, RAG is only compensated when it directly procures a deal for its members; including but not limited to recording, publishing, licensing, endorsement, or touring opportunities. RAG does not have any agreements with its members that infringe upon any other contract they may have allowing us to work with both signed and unsigned artists. Each opportunity RAG procures for its members is done on an individual basis and compensation varies according to the deal. Every RAG member receives a basic medical benefits package through American Income Life and is also offered discounted insurance through the major carriers for health, life, auto, home, boat, etc. We also offer RAG members financial planning services through World Financial Group at a substantial discount.
