You don’t have to make a name for yourself before getting your work out there to a limitless audience anymore. 

Spotify integrates seamlessly with Facebook and Twitter and is considered a social media platform. According to pitchfork.com, Spotify introduced a beta feature in 2018 that now allows artists to upload music for free, without a distributor. Now, like other social media platforms, anyone can use the platform to promote their work – it just takes dedication and knowing how to sell yourself.

After making your own playlist, listen through it to decide if it has a good flow. Also, playing your own music will give it more views adding to the appeal for other people to try it out.

You can also team up with Spotify users who create playlists to get your music on the playlist of someone who has established themselves as a reliable source of good content.

Collaboration is a must in any industry, especially music, and having friends to help you out goes a long way toward reaching your goals. 

Allowing Spotify to add your music to a pre-curated playlist is another great way to get noticed. You do this by pitching your music to curators on Spotify by filling out an application.

The algorithm will then automatically 

add your music to similar genres. If someone is searching for music similar to yours, they will get a taste of your style. This would make your music available to a limitless audience. Make sure these are some of your best to get people searching for you. 

As with any social media, take advantage of the ability to post your music on other platforms such as Facebook, Instagram, TikTok, . Make sure all your friends and family know that you’re pursuing your passion for music. They will be your biggest supporters and will be able to pass along your tracks to other people they know. Keep putting yourself out there. The squeaky wheel gets the grease!

Make sure to let fans know what you’re up to by posting tour dates and other career information for them to follow you. Many artists will keep an updated calendar of events on Spotify to keep everyone in-the-know and updated on the latest happenings in your career. Keep things fresh by letting fans know you’re active in the industry.
