How To Get Your Music On Spotify

There are hundreds of independent artists and all of us must give attention to one thing: gaining new fans! Yes, even more than money, we'd like individuals to hear us and inform their friends about the mind-blowing new band they discovered. Getting our music put on Spotify is a essential step in this process.

Unless you've got been dwelling on Cloud 9, you've heard of Spotify and its "freemium" service. You've additionally heard how Spotify has taken the social network by storm. Each time one among my pals listens to a tune, it pops up on my Spotify, Facebook, Twitter, and no matter different social accounts I've; ex: "Hey!

I'm certain it is one of many stipulations of their agreement with the majors. However the answer remains to be fairly simple. It is advisable to select a distributor like Tunecore, CDBaby or DittoMusic. I've written a assessment of those distributors so it can save you a while and hold rehearsing.

Spotify would not always obtain your superior press kit, so just as a backup, create a profile at allmusic.com. Spotify will check for you there if they do not obtain a bio.

Now that all the tedious stuff is finished with, it's time to let your fans know Spotify might be sporting your tunes quickly! Come up with cool promo posts on Facebook, Twitter and MySpace.

We've recorded a tune just for you guys! Coming to your Spotify account soon!" Fans will eat it up!

Okay, there are a few tedious things to perform still. No site is complete anymore with out click onable logos. As soon as your music is on Spotify, download the service's brand at iconfinder.com. Subsequent, seek for your band profile on Spotify (a number of options will come up, including "High Hit, Tracks, Playlists"... you want to select the link below "Artist"). While hovering over your artist profile, right click on and select "Copy Spotify URI." Final, combine the URI with the Spotify emblem by adding it to your website or weblog sidewall by creating an "Image Widget."

One other hip promo you should utilize for Spotify is the "Spotify Play Button." This function permits you to submit songs onto your website and blog. First, proper click on any music, album or playlist in Spotify you want to promote and as soon as once more choose "Copy Spotify URI."

For instance, let's submit this URI to your blog. Open up your weblog, write something to your hungry fans in html mode: ("We all know you guys desire a sneak peak of our upcoming album. Here is the first track for you! Share it with your mates!"). Subsequent, publish the link and add a salutation.
