 When you have a new idea for a playlist, have a quick search on Spottily to see if it has already been covered. A great way to find good topics is to be reactive everything in the news can be an inspiration for a playlist. Target a niche rather than 'mainstream topic said Gerard. It will make you different from the masses. Once you've found a unique theme, collect a list of around 100 to 200 songs with a max of two songs by the same artist. Keep in mind it takes some time to craft a strong playlist around a good theme. Carlos aka said his mood playlists tend to gain the most followers.

Mood playlists are an incredible chance to do something different than the others, so another chance to be original. In my case, I have a lot of mood playlists. One of the reasons why they have a great number of followers is the fact that I mix genres, styles, music decades. I completely agree with curetting short playlists spotistar with no more than one song by an artist. Great curators always meet this standard.

 

Promote Your Playlists:

A great place to promote your curate playlist is the Spottily Community Playlist Exchange. It's best if you include a description for your playlists so users know what theme/ mood inspired you. You can also create your own website or blog dedicated to promoting your playlists. Of course you can also promote it across social media channels such as facebook Twitter, or Facebook. And remember, it takes work and time to create a fan base. Don't be discouraged if it's a slow start. Twitter is another good option to promote your playlist," said Carlos. If you include undiscovered bands/artists in your playlists, Twitter could be a great platform to connect with them. They usually appreciate your consideration and maybe they will RT you, so your playlist will arrive also to their followers.

 Jonathan also encourages promoting unknown artists. I have devised promoting artists with monthly listeners in the region of 2000. I have always been a bit of a music hunter and love finding an artist on here that is not very well known. If I find an artist in this bracket I now add them to one of my more popular playlists and move the track near the trustpilot start. This has two benefits, it raises the awareness of the emerging artist which they love and gives you an opportunity to feature on their discovered on page. Extra exposure is always good.

 


Update Your Playlists:

Update your playlists frequently to keep the music fresh. It's a good idea to include your new additions at the top of the playlist as well. Most curators we spoke to agreed that songs should be added a few at a time--not renewing all songs at once. Of course this depends on the theme. If it's the 'Best Indie tracks of the last 30 days" then renewing them all once a month makes perfect sense.
