How to Promote Your Music on Deezer and Audiomack with Feature.fm

How do I promote my music to streaming? You’d be forgiven if you thought it was 100% Facebook and Instagram ads to Spotify.

What Artists Should Know About Playlist Blaster

I gave up on Spotify playlist pitching services. They just aren’t worth it. First off, there’s the risk of bots, which could get you booted off Spotify. Every service denies using them, but what human would choose to listen to unthemed collections of random songs by unknown artists? And yet there they are, sometimes with…

I haven’t had much luck with influencer marketing, but that hasn’t stopped me from trying! Since writing about Breakr earlier this year, I’ve done some cheap influencer campaigns on SubmitHub.

Spotify PR Spotlight: Virtuoso Music

Spotify PR Spotlight: Virtuoso Music

It’s always a good sign when a Spotify PR company rejects your song. It means they’re selective, a prerequisite to establishing fruitful relationships with influential curators.

I Bought 16K SoundCloud Plays

I would never buy fake plays, and I strongly suggest you don’t either. You risk getting your material taken down, your account suspended, or worse.
