Are you looking to book more shows? Engage more fans? Grow your audience? Have a promoter take notice? Even with clever marketing tactics, artists can only go so far with free strategies and word of mouth. Nearly every artist on radio and Billboard charts are utilizing some variation of paid marketing strategies to improve their results. Combined with your other strategies, promoting your music with Spotify playlists will help to take your song and your brand outreach to the next level.
Explicit Promotions is currently the only music marketing service in the world to offer entirely organic and authentic audiences, through a network of playlists ran by the world’s top curators. These playlists were grown using digital advertising and Search Engine Optimization (SEO), which is compliant and legal on all streaming platforms. Our competitors and other playlist networks are over run by computer generated results or “bots” as they are typically referred to. These other companies sell you on “reach,” rather than a guarantee. Our team guarantees the minimum amount of streams you purchased by leaving your track in our most active playlists until the campaign goal is achieved. When a service offers “reach,” they simply are referring to impressions. This does not mean that people are actually listening to your song. That service may sell you a package with one million listener reach, but only one thousand of them may actually click on your song to listen. With our minimum guarantee, you are able to secure your goal while having a great chance to exceed it by putting your music in front of real and engaged fans.
The various campaigns we offer all receive the same level of professional attention and expertise from our team. The difference is simply in the amount of streams you would like to purchase or how you are looking to boost your submitted track. For example, larger/more established artists the best valued package is typically 20,000 guaranteed streams however for smaller, first time artists unsure of the path of their career the 5,000 guaranteed streams package tends to be a better fit. If you are trying to determine what will work best for your goals, our team is available 24/7 to answer your questions and guide you to the best campaign for your track.
A “bot” refers to automated software which results in computer generated numbers instead of genuine REAL audiences or streams. Bots will not provide you with the realistic fan activity that you and Spotify are both looking for. Platforms like Spotify will penalize you for using bots – and potentially even ban you permanently for usage of such software.
The Explicit Promotions team has carefully vetted our massive network and constantly reevaluates to assure that all of our campaigns are 100% real. Our campaigns have regular listening patterns, saves, and plays from around the world which we track in order to ensure you are getting the best audience for your music. Any plays from the playlists Explicit Promotions gets for your song will be directly shown in the back-end on “Spotify for Artists.”
We recommend that you always track progress on your Spotify Artist account to monitor your success. With real streams like ours, you will see that the devices they populate on are mostly “Desktop” and/or “Mobile.” Whereas fake streams show under the “Other” section of “Devices.” This “Other” area is one that Spotify and other platforms pay direct attention to because of their fictitious nature.
Explicit Promotions never uses bots, click farms, or fake plays. Our goal is to connect you with genuine listeners. All playlists are owned by our network, and generate growth with SEO marketing strategies, ads, and clever marketing tactics to create traction. Explicit Promotions is completely compliant with Spotify’s terms of service.
Any and all of them! If your genre is extremely unique, we will do our very best to place it alongside similar music for best results. For example, if you have a Goth song, perhaps there is a movie or video game soundtrack with a similar style that would be the best fit for your song’s campaign success. Being placed in a ‘Goth’ playlist may not be likely in the campaign.
No need to wait! We work with all levels of artist – new and established. Selecting a smaller campaign as you start your music journey will help give you the initial boost that you need to carve out a path to your future goals.
Yes! Please make a note to our team within the description that shares the date your song is being released. We will wait until the release date and then reach out via email to get your newly released song’s link in order to begin your campaign.
