Getting Your Music onto Spotify… and Actually Making a Difference
In this episode, we chat with Michael Sloane who is the CEO of Streaming Promotions, strategic platform promotions company that specializes in Spotify playlisting. Started about 5 ½ years ago, Streaming Promotions (www.streamingpromotions.com) works with the independent artist or label that typically won’t be getting editorial support from Spotify or its staff, which is usually reserved for major label and acts. With 40,000 songs added to the Spotify platform daily (based on Tunecore stats), the noise to success ratio can get a bit blurry. Streaming Promotions’ goal is to grow the audience and fan base for their client, increasing numbers and streams in the process without using Bots, or “Pay to Play” in order to achieve the goal of the artist.
