The way to Get Your Tracks on Spotify
Not a Signed Artist? No Problem
You will find hundreds of independent artists and now we all should target a very important factor: gaining new fans! Yes, even more than money, we need website visitors to hear us and tell their friends about the mind-blowing new band they discovered. Getting our music wear Spotify can be a critical step in this process.
Unless you've been living on Cloud 9, you've heard of Spotify and its particular "freemium" service. You've also heard how Spotify has brought the social networking by storm. Whenever one of my pals learns music, it happens on my own Spotify, Facebook, Twitter, and whatever other social accounts We have; ex: "Hey! Nicklas just joined Spotify and paid attention to Weasel... " You get the drift.
So although the sum of money you create per stream (per play) is only a penny, the exposure potential is well worth it. And fortunately for indie artists like yourself, it's pretty very easy to buy your music onto Spotify.
Right now, you may be signed to a label. In that case, your music might be on Spotify already. Whether or not this isn't, call your rep and get if they've uploaded your own music for the service. If they haven't so you would like them too, give the order! (in the nice way). Also, make sure they give Spotify your press kit loaded with a bio, photos, contact details and everything else which makes you stand out. Simple enough, right?!
If you're an unsigned artist, that's okay since there are plenty of ways to upload your own music with no label. However, Spotify cannot negotiate along directly. Have you thought to? I believe it's one of several stipulations of these agreement with all the majors. Nevertheless the solution is still quite simple. You'll want to pick a distributor like Tunecore, CDBaby or DittoMusic. I've written a review of these distributors to help you save serious amounts of keep rehearsing.
When you have created a free account using a distributor or signed a label agreement, your music will probably be uploaded onto Spotify within 4-6 weeks. But there is still try to be practiced, that leads us to:
romote your own music!
Spotify doesn't always receive your awesome press kit, so just like a backup, produce a profile at allmusic.com. Spotify will pay attention to you there when they don't be given a bio.
Now that each of the tedious stuff is conducted with, you need to give your fans know Spotify is going to be sporting your tunes soon! Think of cool promo posts on Facebook, Twitter and MySpace. Create a promo video for the YouTube channel. Just stood a sweet idea: write an audio lesson just for your Spotify release and correct it in your posts! Ex: "Can't wait to find out our fans on Spotify. We've recorded a song simply for you! Visiting your Spotify account soon!" Fans will eat it up!
Okay, there's a number of tedious items to accomplish still. No website is complete anymore without clickable logos. As soon as your music is on Spotify, download the service's logo at iconfinder.com. Next, hunt for your band profile on Spotify (a number of options will come up, including "Top Hit, Tracks, Playlists"... you wish to find the link under "Artist"). While hovering over your artist profile, right click and judge "Copy Spotify URI." Last, combine the URI with all the Spotify logo by adding it aimed at your web or blog sidewall by creating an "Image Widget."
Another hip promo you need to use for Spotify may be the "Spotify Play Button." This selection allows you to post songs to your website and blog. First, right click any song, album or playlist in Spotify you would like to promote and when again select "Copy Spotify URI."
For instance, let's post this URI for your blog. Start your site, write something to your hungry fans in html mode: ("We know you need a sneak peak individuals upcoming album. Here's the 1st track to suit your needs! Share it using your friends!"). Next, post the url and include a salutation.
