How to List Your Virtual Events on Spotify

Covid has caused all kinds of turmoil within the entertainment industry leading to live events postponed until at least 2021! But in the wake of live events being canceled live-streaming has taken over the internet to replace the dearly missed concerts. I can first hand feel the struggle of wanting to gather with my friends with a few drinks and scream the words of my favorite artist's songs with them while they're on stage... Live-streams have helped ease my pain (although my roommate probably doesn't appreciate all my singing haha)!

BUT there is good news from Spotify to help build live-stream audiences even bigger for artists! Spotify just inked a deal with Songkick to integrate live-stream events on artist's profiles!


With the integration, Spotify is tiptoeing into live streaming, which has boomed in popularity as a replacement for concerts after lockdowns were imposed across much of the world. With concert halls shut and major tours on hold until at least next year, stars such...

Spotify enables "Artist Fundraising Pick" to receive direct support from fans via CashApp,PayPal.Me

Do you need extra support from your fans during the COVID-19 outbreak?

Well, now Spotify has enabled the ‘Artist Fundraising Pick’ which allows fans to donate a certain amount of money to support you through PayPal.Me or CashApp.

So while your fans are streaming your music, they can easily push a button and instantly send you funds to help support you even further! Some artists are taking those funds and donating to a fundraiser, or you can use it to help support your own career.

 

 

Spotify stated in a blog post: " “Given the urgency and impact of the COVID-19 crisis, we’re working as quickly as we can to develop this new product and get it out to as many artists as possible. However, we’ve never built a fundraising feature like this before. We consider this a first version that will evolve as we learn how to make it as helpful as possible for the music community.”

  

This is a great way to provide an actionable...

Songwriter Pages on Spotify

Spotify officially releases their BETA for Songwriter pages. This is a new way for creatives to showcase their works even if they aren't releasing it on their Artist pages.

 

A New Era for Songwriters 

I truly believe that this is the beginning of the uprising of songwriters. Just as Producers have recently come out of the shadows and presented themselves as their own artists, ( DJ Khaled, Dr. Dre, etc), the same might start to happen for songwriters.

This new platform on Spotify will allow songwriters who aren't artists an opportunity to create real-estate on Spotify. This will grow credibility and hopefully a fanbase.

 

Any artist who is also a songwriter should absolutely apply for one of these pages!

 

 

You can showcase your recent collaborations

 

 

Spotify will create a "Written By" playlist!

Add incentives for your fans to take action.

So you want your fans to pre-save your song, or like your Facebook page? Well, what's in it for them? I know that sounds harsh but you need to understand that the market is saturated with independent artists asking music lovers to take actions like this. So how are you going to stand out?

Providing incentives for actions is a great way to ensure action is taken. Kevin explains how Show.co  (music marketing tool that CD Baby provides to their users for free) allows artists to create such incentives.
