Are you a signed artist or an independent artist, looking forward to have a Spotify artist account and access the insights of your release on Spotify streaming site?
Welcome to pliggthis.com as we present to you, a simple and easy guide to create and verify a Spotify artist account. This is specifically for independent musical business persons.
If you are signed by a record label, you don’t have to worry because your record label will take care of that.
If you are an independent artist, you’ve got to first of all make sure that your song(s) are on Spotify before going further to How To Create A Spotify Artist Account.
Take note: if your songs are on Spotify, automatically an artist profile is created on Spotify with the name of the artist of the released song.
What’s next is getting access to the artist page which represents your brand with your songs on it.
Important Tips For Your Musical Business Persons
Don’t create an artist name which already exist.
Be very careful when choosing a name for your band or artist.
Make sure the name you chose is creative and unique.
If the above mentioned are ignored, you may find your song(s) on another Spotify artist’s account profile and that would be another work to get done.
How Do You Get Your Song(s) On Spotify
As I previously said, before you can create a Spotify artist account, you need to have your songs already distributed on Spotify.
