Go to a playlist The Basics 1.1 Get Verified
If you haven’t already, join Spotify for Artists (https://artists.spotify.com/). You used to have 250 or more followers in order to get verified but Spotify has made it easier. When you’re verified, you are in control of your profile on Spotify and you’re able to add and update your image, feature tracks and playlists you’re into right now.
1.2 Set Up Profile
After you received the good news of being verified, add a profile image. Start networking and gain more followers. Why more followers? Because, for example, every Friday Spotify releases a new Release Radar (https://support.spotify.com/us/using_spotify/playlists/release-radar/) with up to two hours of new releases from artists they follow and listen to. As more people start listening to your music, you’re also more likely to appear in Discover Weekly. When listeners like your music, they will add it to their personal favorites and saves and Spotify uses this information to learn more about listening habits and provide other listeners with music they think they will like.
1.3 Create Playlists
Now you’re verified and have set up the basics of your profile, it’s time to take it to the next level. Firstly, create a playlist containing all of your releases. For example BAND NAME // RELEASES // GENRE. Secondly, create a playlist with your biggest influences and tracks by emerging artists and include a track or two from yourself as well. Set this playlist as ‘Artist Pick’ via Spotify for Artists’ control panel. Promote this playlist on social media as well and tag the artists on it. Last but not least create a collaborative playlist (https://support.spotify.com/us/using_spotify/playlists/create-playlists-with-your-friends/_ to collaborate and team up with fans and other bands. Collaborative playlists are a great way of driving more traffic to your profile and tracks. Of course, use your network and social media accounts to promote your playlists. When people add tracks to your collaborative playlist(s), do actually listen to these tracks. If you like other people’s tracks, let them know!
2. How To Find And Approach Spotify Curators 2.1 Gather Contacts
There are over 2 billion playlists on Spotify. With that, as we mentioned before, it’s important to get your music on as many of them as you can find. You might think that it’s imperative to get your latest release on big Spotify curated playlists. But there are so many more large playlists that are easier to contact. Besides big industry curated playlists by Topsify (Warner), Filt (Sony) and Digster (Warner), there are many playlists to find curated by blogs and people like you and me, just because they like music. But how do you find these playlists?
2.1.1 Spotify And Facebook
Many curators have connected their Spotify account to Facebook. That way it’s easy to contact these curators. First, think of all the playlist (titles) that would want your music. For example, if you have just released a new track search for ‘New Music’ or ‘New Songs’. Click ‘Playlists’ and find the ones you like. Listen to (or skip through) a couple of tracks to see if your music matches the curator’s taste. If you have found a playlist you think would add you, try to find contact information. Sometimes a curator adds contact information in the description, but more often than not you have to try a bit harder. Click on the curator’s name and check the profile picture. Now go to Facebook and type in the exact same name. Most of the time their Facebook profile shows the same picture as the curator’s on Spotify and you know you have the correct one. We will go into more detail on the next step — Pitch your music — later.
2.1.2 Use Chartmetric to Find Important Playlists And Data
If you haven’t heard of Chartmetric before, sign up (https://chartmetric.io/#!/signup) and use promo code FORTHELOVEOFBANDS for 21 days full access. Chartmetric is an incredible and awesome tool to see all playlists that are supporting your music. You can check artists, playlists, curators, playlist ranking and curator ranking. See some screenshots here (https://chartmetric.io/#!/tour). Ever since Spotify decided to not include top 5 playlists on Artist’s profiles anymore, you have not been able to check which playlist an artist appears on (on Spotify that is). Besides checking which playlists include your music, it’s a great tool to discover new playlists. To do so, think of an artist that is similar to you. After you have found the artist you are were looking for, scroll down to see the ‘Spotify Current Playlists’. See an example found on the tour below.
There may be hundreds of playlists featuring the artist, or a dozen, depending on the artist. Click ‘Show entries’ and select 100, so you have a nice list to work through. Right-click the Spotify icon next to the playlist’s name, or use the one next to the curator. Select copy and paste in your Spotify desktop app. Try to locate the curator, see if he or she takes submissions and proceed according to what we’ve discussed in 2.1.Of course, Chartmetric has many other features which we will discuss in a future Industry Tips.
2.2 Pitch Your Music
After you have located the curator’s contact details, proceed with caution. Prior to making contact, follow the playlist, play a few tracks and start your conversation with the curator by telling what you think of the playlist. Start with a friendly relationship and tell about your project in a few lines and suggest it for their playlist. Why does the curator want you on the playlist? Be patient and make sure you aren’t too pushy. Begging or demanding won’t get you anywhere.
2.3 Keep Track Of Your Submissions
Keep track of the playlists you’ve found and curator’s you’ve contacted. It’s best to use an Excel sheet. We’ve created on for you to use.
