Not really a Signed Artist? Not an issue

You'll find countless independent artists so we all must concentrate on one thing: gaining new fans! Yes, more than money, we want visitors to hear us and tell their friends regarding the mind-blowing new band they discovered. Getting our music place on Spotify is often a critical step in this technique.

Unless you are living on Cloud 9, you've heard of Spotify and its "freemium" service. You've also heard how Spotify has taken the online community by storm. Whenever one of my friends listens to music, it pops up on my Spotify, Facebook, Twitter, and whatever other social accounts We have; ex: "Hey! Nicklas just joined Spotify and listened to Weasel... " You get the drift.

So although cost you create per stream (per play) is under a penny, the exposure potential is well worth the while. And fortunately for indie artists like yourself, it's pretty simple to get the music onto Spotify.

At the moment, you might be signed into a label. In that case, your own music could possibly be on Spotify already. Whether it isn't, call your rep and enquire of if they've uploaded your own music towards the service. When they haven't and you would like them too, give the order! (inside a nice way). Also, make sure they give Spotify your press kit set with a bio, photos, contact details and everything else that makes you jump out. Not so difficult, right?!

An advanced unsigned artist, that's okay because there are tons of ways to upload your own music with no label. However, Spotify cannot negotiate along with you directly. Have you thought to? I believe it's one of many stipulations of the agreement with all the majors. However the option would be still fairly easy. You'll want to choose a distributor like Tunecore, CDBaby or DittoMusic. I've written overview of these distributors to help you save serious amounts of keep rehearsing.

Once 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 achieved, which leads us to:

romote your music!



Spotify doesn't always receive your awesome press kit, so equally as a backup, create a profile at allmusic.com. Spotify will check for you there should they don't be given a bio.

Seeing that all the tedious stuff is completed with, you're ready to enable your fans know Spotify will probably be sporting your tunes soon! Develop cool promo posts on Facebook, Twitter and MySpace. Make a promo video for the YouTube channel. Just stood a sweet idea: write an audio lesson simply for your Spotify release and fasten it on your posts! Ex: "Can't wait to find out our fans on Spotify. We've recorded music exclusively for you! Visiting your Spotify account soon!" Fans will eat it up!

Okay, there are a few tedious things 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, search for your band profile on Spotify (several options will come up, including "Top Hit, Tracks, Playlists"... you wish to choose the link under "Artist"). While hovering over your artist profile, right click and pick "Copy Spotify URI." Last, combine the URI using the Spotify logo by having it aimed at your web or blog sidewall by creating an "Image Widget."

Another hip promo you can use for Spotify may be the "Spotify Play Button." This selection allows you to post songs onto 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 example, let's post this URI to your blog. Throw open your blog post, write something to your hungry fans in html mode: ("We know everyone want a sneak peak individuals upcoming album. Here's the initial track for you! Share it using your friends!"). Next, post the link and include a salutation.
