SHOWCASE YOUR TASTES USING PLAYLISTS
If you like different types of music you can use playlists to understand your tastes around what you like. You can go into different genres completely. So curate playlists around your tastes. It’s essentially what DJs do – arranging tracks in order for people to listen too.
CREATE A WEEKLY TOP 10
Update this weekly and try and be less obvious, the key is to be consistent, so if its weekly then you need to turn up each week, and really at the same time each week, you can brand it, you can create socials graphics for it and you can share it to stories and tag the artists in it. This will help you build as an artist pretty quickly.
CREATE YOUR OWN FUN THEMED PLAYLIST on Spotify
You might have noticed loads of fun playlists like ‘music to cook spaghetti bolognese too’ or ‘come down Mondays’ or ‘music to get you thru that Wednesday come down hell’
EMBED YOUR PLAYLISTS ON YOUR OWN WEBSITE / share it to socials
Get your playlist it out there, share it on your own website, can you pitch your playlist to blogs or websites to share it, especially if its a theme-based one – we just had one around BBQing on Data Transmission.
If you are releasing records and have tracks out, try doing swaps with friends who have playlists, labels who have playlists, if you have a good number on yours then it should be an easy swap.
Then make sure you share their inclusion to your social media, share to stories – as no doubt they will repost it which opens you up to their audience.
