- Write Great Music
The song you’re releasing is the most important factor in its success. This is particularly true in the case of streaming services. It is important to devote time to the writing process.
- Get Your Music on Spotify
A digital distributor is the key to getting your music onto any streaming service. DistroKid and CD Baby are two of the most well-known digital distributors.
- Claim Your Profile on Spotify For Artists
When you claim your Spotify profile with Spotify For Artists, you gain access to a variety of options. This includes the ability to create playlists, use analytic tools, and much more.
- Promote on Social Media
Spotify offers a variety of features to let artists and fans share their music on social media. You may make a narrative with cover art from your music using the Share To Instagram Stories option. Snapchat and Instagram both have similar features.
- Activate Pre-Saving
Spotify’s version of pre-ordering songs is pre-saving. The greater the number of fans that pre-save a song, the higher it will rank in Spotify’s algorithms. Long before your song is published, start planning a campaign around pre-saving it.
- Submit to Spotify Playlists
There are three major approaches to make playlists work for you. The Spotify for Artists program allows you to submit tracks for consideration. The best way to learn more about this procedure is directly from Spotify.
- Be Consistent
A series of singles released over several months is preferable to a whole album released all at once. This not only gives fans an incentive to keep checking you out, but it also encourages them to do so.
Finally, be patient; momentum takes time to build, but if you keep pushing and staying focused, you, too, will get there!
