My band just released their latest EP and we are looking for Spotify promotion.
We’ve never really picked up much traction, and hoping to get on Spotify playlists.
I noticed there are a few pitching companies out there but haven’t heard anything good about them, anyone had any experience with them?
Any tips or advice would be greatly appreciated
I friend told me about this question and happy to jump on board.
There aren’t necessarily any established Spotify promotion companies out there, and as someone who’s researched this a lot I can suggest you try to get as far as you can without employing a company.
You can google things like “Spotify Submissions” which can find a lot of blogs who have Spotify playlists that accept submissions. You can also try searching the playlist curators and sending them your music, just remember they aren’t bloggers or necessarily music lovers, just people who happen to have popular playlists.
I also, SubmitHub have a Spotify playlist submission section too.
If you did want to use an Spotify promotion company to do it for you, there is a Music PR company in London who I’d recommend here:
I hope this helps!
Thanks, I didn’t know Submithub did Spotify playlists, I will try that first!
I don’t know, I will let you know how it goes
Joined 13 hours ago, and joined two hours ago. Surely not a coincidence!
It’s almost impossible for you to get on any official Spotify playlists, sorry. These are tightly controlled and ringfenced for majors/large indies and acts with major hype.
Your best bet is to target smaller blogs and specialist magazines/outlets/brands who have their own playlists and try and get on there. That can be even more effective in some cases as they’re so niche.
Ok thanks, I’ve had people claim to me they have contacts with official Spotify curators, but never seen anyone actually get results
What a lovely way this turned out!
They might have contacts, but actually getting on their official playlists (particularly the main ones) is rare if you’re not signed to a label of note.
Best bet is aiming for smaller curated playlists and other artists who have their own playlists.
Did anyone reach a conclusion
I used Burstimo for a little while, but then I discovered my credit card details had been sold on the dark web so I will never use them again!!!
Impressive number of clickthroughs for this, can we compare selenium scripts?
What did you use Burstimo for, that sounds like a nightmare it looks like they started this thread anyway judging by shameless plug at the start so backfired a bit !
Yeah, I can’t stand people who post on message boards with hidden agendas. How do you feel about that @MaryP?
Havent decided on my agenda yet but you do need one but no need to hide it most of all agenda I guess is build understanding of how people can help what’s yours ?
Can I be honest with you Mary? I’m an undercover cop, and I’ve been working this case for the last three years that’s driving me crazy. There’s no-one I can talk to about it, it’s just so lonely. I can’t go into specific details on the case, but basically there’s a strong link between Spotify promotion services and arms which are being sold to North Korea. It’s pretty intense stuff, but we’re so close to cracking the case and bringing down the whole organisation now that it’s keeping me going.
Wow now that is an agenda .
