Just before we dive into the three-step process to get music into Spotify Playlists, please read and make sure you understand the points below:
Important: Read this before you submit your music to Spotify playlists!
Only ever submit music to RELEVANT Spotify playlists:
One sure fire way to be ignored by Spotify curators is to spam them with music that clearly is not a fit for their playlist. Do your research and only submit music that suits the playlist. If your music is featured in an irrelevant playlist it’s skip-rate will increase and Spotify will deem it lower quality and will be less likely to include it in their in-house playlists.
Bigger does not necessarily mean better.
A playlist with 100 real engaged followers is much better than a playlist with 10,000 fake followers. Furthermore, relevance is more important than size. Spotify’s algorithm takes all playlists into account when deciding which songs to surface in the Discover Weekly and Release Radar playlists. Find out more about how Discover Weekly works, here.
Your music has to be good.
It sounds obvious but Spotify curators are first and foremost music fans. If your music is not as good as the other artists they are featuring, well, it’s unlikely they are going to take you seriously. Also, to get music into Spotify playlists, please make sure your artwork looks professional!
Three steps to get your music into Spotify Playlists.
As Spotify continues to explode in popularity more and more playlist pitching services and playlist promotion companies are springing up. Some may be good, but it’s hard to know who to trust especially as many of the online reviews of streaming promotion companies are biased, written by the companies themselves.
