When you build a brand. You examine your image closely. I am (personally) not big on Spotify. I don’t really promote my Spotify in any way shape or form. I do think that it’s great that my music is available there.
When it comes to sales, it seems like Spotify doesn’t exactly produce results in comparison to the other streaming services. So I never really took it very seriously. So I decided to merge it with my “listener” account and find out why.
I couldn’t help but notice that my page was missing that “spark” other artists have on theirs. I attempted to fix it in the past, and I often came up short. Well… That is.. Until now. I have decided to perform a much needed update to my Spotify that I would like to share with you. Check it out.
The changes are more noticeable on the MAC and PC versions of Spotify but I am assuming they will be reflected on the APP as well. The changes I have made produce more authenticity to the listeners. As before, it just seemed like a “default” page for an artist.
I think people tend to forget that writing, recording, and producing music are only part of the battle. Once the music is created, you need to market it, sell it, and promote it.
If the artist has the support of a major label, they are certainly paying all these people to do this for them. Which usually results in heavy debts on the artist. Debts that they never usually overcome. The music industry is changing. It’s possible for.a musician to literally DIY. As long as you have the skills, knowledge, patience, and drive.
