Gain More Followers on Spotify: A Musicians Guide 2019
Here are Some Ways for Spotify Followers, that's Help You to Get More Followers on Spotify.
1. Create Your Own Playlist.
Do it yourself! The simplest way to get more streams and gain followers is to start building your own playlists. Be active, creative and manage your own personal playlists around your releases. Most importantly, it allows you to trade your tracks with other curators, share your music and increase your presence: it’s a win-win situation.
2. Source Your Facebook Friend.
If you have 1,000 Facebook friends there is a good chance 300-600 of them are on Spotify. Draft up a message that you can send out to your Facebook friends. Be detailed and don't forget to tell them why they should follow you. Being your friend is hopefully enough but give them your pitch just to be sure. Writing a post simply is not enough you need to message each person individually. If you are bold have them send you a screenshot of them following you.
3. Embed Your Playlist On Your Own Website.
Right-click the title of your playlist on Spotify and select: “Copy Embed Code”. Paste that code into your next blog post on into the sidebar of your website. This will bring more visibility to your playlist and encourage people to follow you on Spotify.
4. Have a Good Title and Description.
Titles can have a huge impact on your playlist’s popularity. If the playlist has a generic title, it won’t make an impact and it would just become one of the millions of playlists on Spotify. It must also be connected to your theme. This also applies to the description.
The descriptions can give the listeners what they are going to expect with what kind of songs listed in your playlist. You can be witty, straightforward, or anything. It adds charm and appeals to your music selection.
5. Understand Your Listeners’ Wants and Needs.
Even if your main forte is song creation, Spotify playlists give you the opportunity to think entrepreneurially about your target audience. You’re entering a zone in which the better you promote your art, the more success you’ll see. Therefore, you must put yourself in your fans’ shoes and think about their main desires and interests. First, define your target audience. Who are they? If you think they’ll like your music, what else will they like? What other genres do you like, even though you don’t make that type of music?
6. Post on Reddit.
Reddit's Spotify Playlists subreddit hosts a competition every month for the best playlist created within a theme. Alternatively, you can simply upload to this subreddit which helps to bring the power of Reddit's ranking algorithm to Spotify playlist discovery.
The We Are the Music Makers subreddit is another online community perfect for playlist exchanges. There are different competitions every week to create a buzz, where users post comments and regularly check out the work of others.
7. Update Your Playlists.
Update your playlists frequently to keep the music fresh. It's a good idea to include your new additions at the top of the playlist as well. Most curators we spoke to agreed that songs should be added a few at a time--not renewing all songs at once. Of course, this depends on the theme. If it's the 'Best Indie tracks of the last 30 days" then renewing them all once a month makes perfect sense.
8. Don’t Change Your Playlist Name.
We see curators changing their playlist according to what's going on at that time, for example changing the list name to “Ultra 2018” and then a month later to “Coachella”. This will probably help you get new followers, but most of those followers will stop listening to your playlist as soon as you change the name to something else.
Imaging you start following a playlist which is called “Ultra 2018” and you listen to it regularly, but at some point, you don’t see that playlist in your account anymore because the name changed. You might see a “Coachella” list but you’ve never followed it, the changes that you will actually start listening to it will be quite small.
