If you are a Spotify artist, especially if you’re a new artist on Spotify, getting people to listen to your music can be a challenge. Spotify is really slow when it comes to updating its library as well, which doesn’t help new artists at all. In most cases, as a new artist your page will likely not show up in the search results on Spotify for weeks or even months. This is particularly true if your artist or band name is similar to many other artist pages already found on Spotify. As a new Spotify artist this can be extremely frustrating especially when your fans hear that you’re on Spotify and can’t find you. What can you do to increase your chances of being found quickly on Spotify?
For starters, understand that this is all done algorithmically so unfortunately contacting Spotify’s support team is not going to do much to speed things up. Be patient because it’s going to take time, but you need to start sharing your artist page and links to your music on your website and social media as quickly as possible. The more people that listen to your music and follow you early will definitely speed up how long it will take for your artist page to be indexed in Spotify’s search results.
Aside from promoting your music on social media, once your music is listed in Spotify’s library you can start using promotion services like Mass Media. MassMediaPlus.com has provided Spotify plays to many Spotify artists working towards increasing their popularity. Keep in mind that these plays are real and eligible for royalties.
You may be wondering how this service provides these plays considering they claim to have provided well over 10 million Spotify plays. Well, I contacted Mass Media’s support to find out and I was pleasantly surprised how quickly they responded and answered all my questions. While we’re on the subject I can’t stress enough the importance of contacting and testing the support of any new business you are considering working with. Not only does it give you a better feel for how the business operates and what to expect, but if you need help with something you need to know someone is really there to help you out.
From what I have gathered Mass Media has a large network of listeners that’s actively expanding to provide these services. Over 90% of their listeners are from the United States and most of the plays they provide come from different listeners, which means this service will boost you monthly listeners significantly! Satisfied with their customer service and their explanation of they would be provide I was ready to setup my first order.
I decided to try a 10 day campaign for 10,000 Spotify plays and I was very happy with the results. Almost all the plays came from the United States as promised and my monthly listeners increased by about 7,000 when the project was completed. The campaign took a couple days to start, but from what I could tell the streams came in as described, “Your tracks will be played steadily throughout the day from start to finish over the length of the campaign specified.” As the support agent said the plays were delivered steadily. My 10 day campaign did provide a little more than a thousand plays each day.
Now there are a number of different companies that provide Spotify plays, but you need to be careful who you choose to do business with. Unfortunately some companies provide these services with bots or other questionable methods that could land your account a serious penalty. In my opinion it’s worth paying a little more for the support & security of Mass Media’s services than hoping for the best with a cheaper service.
