Update your profil on streaming platforms

It is essential to work on your profile on streaming platforms in order to generate more streams. For this purpose we have listed for you all the necessary possibilities to ensure you an ever more attractive profile.

Validate your profile

The first thing you need to do is make sure your Spotify, Deezer and Apple Music profile is checked. In addition to gaining credibility and access to more data about your activity on streaming sites, this will usually lead to higher search results, as verified profiles are favoured by the algorithms.

Here are the links to get your Spotify, Deezer and Apple Music accounts verified:

Spotify: https://artists.spotify.com/c/access
Deezer: https://backstage.deezer.com
Apple Music: https://itunesconnect.apple.com/login
Afterwards, don't forget to optimize your profile according to the platform to gain professionalism (profile picture, banner, concerts, etc.).

Target playlists

If a playlist is influential enough, it is already because its curator (streaming platform, average user, blogger, radio, magazine, celebrity, brand or other music project) targets a rather specific and niche audience. A successful playlist is first of all based on a well thought-out editorial line with the aim of appealing to a specific audience.

In order to appear on a playlist that corresponds to your audience, you need to identify which playlists are interesting for your musical niche and then who are the potential interlocutors who manage these playlists. You can't target the mass market directly. Instead, look for curators that fit your niche and see if you have a way to get in touch with the people who make those playlists.

Ideally, you should create a database of the "influencers" you have targeted to contact and pitch your new sounds to them.
