Not really a Signed Artist? No issue
You can find countless independent artists so we all must concentrate on one thing: gaining new fans! Yes, more than money, we need website visitors to hear us and tell their friends in regards to the mind-blowing new band they discovered. Getting our music placed on Spotify is really a critical step in this procedure.
Unless you are living on Cloud 9, you’ve probably heard of Spotify and it is "freemium" service. You’ve also heard how Spotify has taken the social media by storm. Whenever certainly one of my pals learns an audio lesson, it arises on my small Spotify, Facebook, Twitter, and whatever other social accounts I have; ex: "Hey! Nicklas just joined Spotify and followed Weasel… " You get the drift.
So however the amount of cash you are making per stream (per play) is only a penny, the exposure potential is definitely worth it. And fortunately for indie artists like yourself, it’s pretty easy to get the music onto Spotify.
At this time, you may be signed to some label. If that’s the case, your own music could be on Spotify already. Whether or not this isn’t, call your rep and ask if they’ve uploaded your music on the service. Should they haven’t and you also want them too, provide order! (inside a nice way). Also, make sure they send Spotify your press kit loaded with a bio, photos, contact details and whatever else that creates you stick out. Not so difficult, right?!
If you are a unsigned artist, that’s okay with there being a lot of methods to upload your music with out a label. However, Spotify cannot negotiate along directly. Why not? I’m sure it’s among the stipulations of the agreement together with the majors. However the option is still quite simple. You need to choose a distributor like Tunecore, CDBaby or DittoMusic. I’ve written overview of these distributors so you can save some serious amounts of keep rehearsing.
Once you’ve created a forex account using a distributor or signed a label agreement, your own music is going to be uploaded onto Spotify within 4-6 weeks. However, there is still work to be done, that leads us to:
romote your own music!
Spotify doesn’t always receive your awesome press kit, so just as a backup, develop a profile at allmusic.com. Spotify will search for you there should they don’t get a bio.
Seeing that each of the tedious stuff is completed with, it’s time to enable your fans know Spotify will be sporting your tunes soon! Produce cool promo posts on Facebook, Twitter and MySpace. Create a promo video to your YouTube channel. Just had a sweet idea: write an audio lesson simply for your Spotify release and correct it in your posts! Ex: "Can’t wait to see our fans on Spotify. We’ve recorded a song exclusively for you! Coming to your Spotify account soon!" Fans will eat it up!
Okay, there’s a few tedious items to accomplish still. No site is complete anymore without clickable logos. When your music is on Spotify, download the service’s logo at iconfinder.com. Next, seek out your band profile on Spotify (several options arrive up, including "Top Hit, Tracks, Playlists"… you want to select the link under "Artist"). While hovering over your artist profile, right click and judge "Copy Spotify URI." Last, combine the URI using the Spotify logo with the help of it to your website or blog sidewall by creating an "Image Widget."
Another hip promo you can use for Spotify will be the "Spotify Play Button." This selection permits you to post songs to your website and blog. First, right click any song, album or playlist in Spotify you wish to promote as soon as again select "Copy Spotify URI."
As one example, let’s post this URI for your blog. Open your blog post, write something to your hungry fans in html mode: ("We know you want a sneak peak individuals upcoming album. Here’s the very first track to suit your needs! Share it together with your friends!"). Next, post the hyperlink and include a salutation.
