Why Upload Music to Spotify?
A. Some Fast Facts about Spotify
Uploading your music to Spotify means making it available to more than 320 million active users in 92 countries, among them almost 150 million paid subscribers. Nice numbers for the market leader, which has been around since 2008.
B. How to Upload Songs on Spotify?
In order to upload your songs on Spotify (and all other platforms), you need a Wiseband artist or premium account. So uploading your songs on Spotify is making sure to be present on the largest music streaming platform.
Please note that there are two groups of Spotify users:
Free subscribers (using Spotify with ads).
Premium subscribers (ad-free and able to cache music for offline playback).
Either way, uploading your music on Spotify is a way to make money every time someone listens to your songs.
Distribute and share your single, EP or album with Wiseband on all download and streaming services! Spotify is the world’s leading music streaming service, offering millions of tracks from indie as well as major labels.
C. How to Distribute your Songs on Spotify?
In order to distribute your songs on Spotify and all other music platforms, you need to work with a music distribution service such as Wiseband. Their job is to make sure your tracks are delivered correctly to the various platforms you have chosen.
One thing is clear: As an independent artist or label, you can’t go directly to Spotify, knock on their door, and initiate digital music distribution yourself.
Working with Wiseband, you only have to focus on your music. Getting your songs on the platforms of your choice is then quite easy.
