There are millions of playlists on Spotify and they all have a chance to be seen by the right people. That’s why it is essential to make your playlist search-friendly so that it will be seen by all of the people who are looking for that particular genre or artist.
The best way to do this is by choosing a catchy name that will appeal to your audience. You want your playlist to be the first thing that comes up when someone searches for a certain type of music or artist, so it is important to come up with a name that sets the expectations of the audience.
It is also a good idea to choose a name that reflects the genre of music you are trying to promote or the artists who are featured on the playlist. You should be able to describe your playlist in the name and include some keywords, like “pop” or “rock” and so on, that will help listeners find it when they’re searching for a specific genre or artist.
Creating a Spotify Playlist is an excellent way to get your music out there and build your following, especially if you have a large amount of followers already on the platform. The more followers you have, the better chance you have of being featured on an editorial playlist or being spotted by Spotify’s own editors.
But while a lot of these users are music bloggers, influencers and DJs, there are some playlists out there that are created by fans themselves. Some of these are just for fun, but others have been curated around a theme or event. For example, a workout playlist; a cook-songs playlist; a blancmange-themed collaborative playlist (yes, this is actually an actual thing) and many more.
In some cases, these are made by the curators themselves to promote their own work or a cause that they support, and can be a great way to get your music out there. It is also a great way to show your passion for your work and let the world know that you are committed to your career as an artist.
It is a big step for an independent artist to be featured in an editorial playlist, and it can be a hard fought battle, but it can be the key to launching a successful career on Spotify. The best part is that it doesn’t cost you any money, and the potential to have hundreds of thousands of new followers and streams is huge!
If you’re looking for a place to start, there are plenty of popular playlists that feature a mix of all the latest hits from both popular and independent artists. Some of these are more well known than others, but they all have something in common: the artists that feature on them are some of today’s most exciting and promising acts.
For all the hype, it is important to remember that not all the artists that are featured in a popular playlist will become a huge success. Some of them might only be popular for a few weeks or months, but they can still gather a fanbase that is passionate about their music and can be the starting point for them to grow and develop into a real career. Regardless of the outcome, you should always remember that the only way to make an impact with your music is to put in your time and effort.
