Did You Think Why You are Not Getting Plays on Spotify l Alwaysviral
Here I Will Tell You How to Get Plays on Spotify. Just Follow These Tips and Get Lot of Plays on Spotify.
1. View Song Lyrics.
Spotify has partnered with Genius to provide lyrics for selected English songs. This is currently only available on the Spotify mobile app. To view the song lyrics, open the Spotify app on your phone. Play an English song, and go to its album view. Tap on the album picture, and the lyrics will show up. (Note that this is only applicable for certain songs.)
Optionally, you can go to the settings and activate the “Behind the Lyrics” mode. It will show information about the song alongside the lyrics.
2. Use an Album Cover that Stands Out.
Social media is very reflective of visual media. Every image that represents your music should look professional. That mean no grainy selfies. This is not amateur hour. It’s a clear fact that you are judged by every piece of media that you put on the internet to represent your music brand. If the image is horrible, no one will take you seriously. Many musicians still don’t understand that it’s not the music that initially hooks an audience. It’s actually a high-quality image design that grabs their attention. The music simply won’t ever get played if the image doesn’t wow your audience. Industry pros like Apple, Rhapsody, Amazon, Spotify etc. do not favor those with low-quality products. Hence, you need o to upgrade your game to get a decent response. After all, as a new artist...
3. Discover Daily Mixes.
You might already know about “Discover Weekly,” but did you know that it also generates multiple “Daily Mixes” playlists that you can play daily? Once it detects that you have listened to multiple music/songs from a genre or category, it will then generate a daily playlist with random songs from the genre/category that you are listening to.
4. Get Playlisted.
Getting your music featured on Spotify playlists can be difficult. The main playlists are controlled by the editorial team at Spotify or the major labels but there is no reason you can’t submit your music to some independent Spotify curators and work your way up that way. Click here to find a list of five independent Spotify playlists curators and find out how to submit your music to them.
Some curators accept playlist submissions via the Soundplate website. Check out the Spotify playlist submission system on their website. Others use SubmitHub to accept new music and some are happy to receive email submissions.
Pro Tip: The Spotify editorial team that curate the main playlists on the platform pay attention to the ‘buzz’ around a track, if your music is being featured on Blogs or on independent playlists you are much more likely to be added to the big playlists.
5. Add a “Follow” Button On Your Website.
If you have a blog or any page on other social media, place the Follow button widget so that it easy for visitors to follow you on Spotify with a click of a button. You can also embed a playlist to your website next to your follow button, too!
If you don’t have a blog or any social media page to promote your music, I would recommend you to ask for help from the professional who is an expert on delivering real followers from all around the world.
6. Organize Playlists in Folders.
Not only can you organize tracks into playlists, but you can organize the playlists into playlist folders. To create a new playlist folder, go to the File menu and click on “New Playlist Folder” (duh). A new folder will appear in the left-hand column. Give it a name, and then you can drag other playlists in and out of these collapsible folders. Notice that clicking on the folder will show all the sub-playlists’ tracks. And if you want to get really anal, you can even add folders in folders.
7. Search Better.
Searching for music using the artist, album or song name is all fine and dandy, but did you know Spotify also lets you use other terms to do a smart search? For example, you can use terms like “Year:1973-1980” to find songs from this era only. There are many other terms, and you can also chain together terms to make your search even more precise. You can refer to Spotify’s advanced search guide to learn these terms.
8. Write a Blog About It.
If you are a blog writer or you know one, it would be good if you did a social media post to talk about your song, the inspiration behind it, and any future plans you have. Then you can share this on your social media platforms for your followers. You can also request your followers to share with their followers.
