Music enthusiasts would definitely be in love with Spotify, with the platform readily recognized by its algorithm that gives artists the opportunity to harness and reach the right audience.
Artists who want to have commercial success on the non-free Swedish streaming service would love to have their various fans and users click on that small heart-shaped button that will effectively add their song to their playlist, thereby earning more listeners and streams by the platform’s design.
It is hence of note that the user-generated playlist on Spotify is mooted to give music lovers a better listening experience, laced with a recognized following and popular list.
The streaming platform in a bid to maintain its hold on the streaming market is planning to modify the recently released feature during the testing period to allow listeners mellow in the melodic rhythms of their favourite artists.
Being verified on the streaming platform goes a long way to show the artist authenticity within the music space and this makes it easier to be featured on a user’s playlist, but while an artist works his way up to the ladder, here are three of the tips on how to find someone’s Spotify playlist.
- Look Out For Users With Aspiring, Small User Base
As an artiste and content maker, the first thing you need to do is to look out for users on the platform that aren’t yet loaded with a large user base: that is, users with a relatively small user base. The reason for this is that they would latch on easily to the idea of Spotify user-generated playlist collaboration. It will be a win-win situation for you both as you will be on their playlist, while you would also be helping them gain more followers. While you highlight your profile and playlist to them, they also know they need you to gain followers.
- Spread Your Spotify Profile Links To Different Social Media Platforms
The effect the social media has on an artist popularity cannot be adequately quantified here but many artistes are in strong agreement with the paramount role social media plays in promoting a particular product. The different social media platforms helps to reach out to the larger audience to elevate the public attraction of the artist craft and it is on the aegis of this that the various audio content creators will need to advantage of this to promote their Spotify profile through their links.
As an artist, you should learn to spread your profile’s links over all your social media platforms to attract the right people with the same musical ear as you. The people you convert from your social media followers will help to elevate your followers’ list and you will be potentially included in their Spotify user-generated playlist.
- Originate Your Own Playlist
You are the owner of your craft and you should rightly control it so, make sure you attract followers to no your playlist but to your profile, as you seek to increase attraction on the platform. Doing this would make you known amongst users through the playlist, and in the process leading to stronger connections.
You can be modest for a start by building a simple playlist with one theme, appealing title, and you rise to the top of your career through Spotify!
