This solves a missed opportunity to announce achievements such as getting playlisted or releasing new music. Modern musicians wear many hats, just focusing on music is no longer enough. Promotion is almost as essential as the music itself. Spotify validates this point by giving the power back into the hands of the artists and offering them a simple tool to easily build promotional assets.
Music discovery remains a challenge on streaming platforms because of the abundant amount of music uploaded each day. It is up to the artists to connect with fans by communicating with them. In this competitive industry, non-musical content such as strong visuals and branding is valuable. Social media is an efficient tool to reach fans directly. Sending press releases to tastemakers, music blogs and radio stations, organizing a tour, creating an email list are other forms of music promotion. In-person networking is one strategy that’s often overlooked.
