FAQ

What are the benefits of getting support from playlists?

  • Spotify pays more than double what Youtube does for streams so success on Spotify means success for your bank account too!

  • Our playlist contacts may continue to support your music in the future if they like what they hear.

 

  • Major labels make the majority of their money now from streaming services so they are always seeking new artists who are gaining popularity on Spotify.  Popularity on Spotify = interest from big labels.

 

  • Music supervisors seeking film and TV sync’s now utilize Spotify playlists to find new music to license.  Sometimes being in the right playlist will get you an opportunity to have your music licensed.

  • All of the playlists within our network are grown using only safe, organic methods and have been third party verified.

 

What playlists will my song be placed on?

  • We are a pitching company and don’t own playlists so we don’t know which playlists will accept your song until we start the pitching process.

 

Can I see a list of playlists in your network?

  • We use a database of thousands of the top playlists on Spotify. When someone orders a campaign, we sort by genre and start pitching. We don’t provide our database contacts but after you’ve started a campaign, you will be able to contact the curator who has supported your music.

  • For real life examples of past clients who have had success with great playlists, visit our homepage, BLOG, and TESTIMONIALS

 

How many plays and followers will I get?

  • The amount of plays and followers you can expect varies greatly depending on how your music connects with people.  Each curator we pitch to is independent and they do not work for us.  Some have very active followers and some not. The Spotify platform also does not count plays on a song unless it has been played for :30 seconds, so if your song is skipped a lot, you will not see a rapid gain in your statistics.  On the other hand, we also have clients who after getting in one playlist, go viral getting hundreds of thousands of plays within weeks.

 

What can I expect from a campaign?

  • After you’ve made your payment, we start submitting your track to curators the following day.  It can take up to a week to start to gain acceptance.  Sometimes longer. This is real, specialized promotion and it involves waiting on curators to update so it’s important to be patient. When your song gets approved, someone on our team will send you a link to the playlist. As you gain more playlister contacts of your own, you can use them to pitch your next releases.

 

How does the approval process work?

  • When listening to a new submission, our team looks for music that evokes emotion, has an infectious hook, and displays a professional level of mixing and mastering. The better a song scores on these levels, the larger the campaign we can approve. If for any reason your song is not accepted you will receive a full refund.

How do you get my track support on playlists?

  • We’ve spent the last few years researching contacts for independent playlisters and with over 15,000 playlists, we are gaining new contacts every day. We focus on playlists with a minimum of 5,000 fans, however it can also be beneficial to get support from a mix of smaller playlists too so we don’t leave them out.

 

Am I paying for placement? I heard that was bad.

  • Short answer: No. You are not paying for playlist placement, you're paying for us to pitch your music to our network of playlist curators.

       However, our network is big enough to make sure your song is placed on a genre-specific playlist, producing organic results.

 

  • If for some reason our curators do not accept the song, we will refund you in full within 24 hours.

Are your playlists genre-specific?

  • Yes, we will pitch your music to curators based on the style of the song(s) you submit to us. We have curators for the top 15 most popular genres of music on Spotify within our network, including Hip Hop, R&B, EDM, Trap, Pop, House, Techno, Downtempo, Chill, Future Bass, Experimental and more.

How do I get support from one of the big Spotify editorial playlists?

  • Anyone can now submit to them via a tool inside your personal Artist Insights page. However an article on Buzzfeed states that these in-house curated playlists also use data from a software called PUMA (playlist usage monitoring analysis) when making decisions about which independent artists to support. They are more likely to support music that is being engaged with by users and shared often by playlists.

 

How long will my song stay in the playlist?

  • The curators typically keep a song for a minimum of one month or longer but there are occasional exceptions.  Some playlists switch out songs every 2 weeks that aren’t doing well with their playlist followers.  If your song is removed from a playlist before 2 weeks, let us know and we will find a replacement playlist for you at no extra fee.

 

What type of other promotion can I get with my campaign?

  • We offer several promotion options in addition to organic playlist pitching. These add ons include follower growth campaigns, Tiktok Sound & Influencer Campaigns, and Youtube video promotion. Whenever available, we request additional support from the curators in our network when they accept a track for their playlist. Check out our PROMOTE page or send us an email for more information.

 

I am a curator with my own playlists. How do I join your network?

  • Please send links to your playlists with the subject line Curator to: playlistsplus@gmail.com and we will get back to you.
