Redeye 101: New Spotify Verification Process + Brand Guidelines

April 2nd, 2015
101

Spotify launched its new verification and brand guidelines this week, with some key updates when it comes to marketing artists and releases on the service. Like more traditional social channels, maintaining an artist profile with a new profile image, branded playlists, listener history and share-to-follower strategy can set the foundation for marketing within the service around a new single or album release.

Here are a few highlights from the update:
Advertising on the service, or incorporating a call-to-stream into social media marketing? Review Spotify’s new corporate identity and logo usage.

Not verified on the platform yet? Spotify outlined a new verification process, and now requires a minimum of 250 followers to submit for the blue check mark. If the artist has at least 250, you can submit for verification via the new form. If you’re a label and want channel verification, submit your request here.

Don’t have the necessary 250 followers for artist verification? Start building followers at any point in the release cycle by setting a share-to-follower strategy: Sign up for a free account, and start using the service. Listen to music by current and past tour mates, album collaborators and inspiration tracks. Share favorite songs, albums and playlists to existing followers. Build playlists themed around the upcoming release, catalog titles or tour routes. And, of course, let fans on social media and email lists know to follow along.

Need to swap out a new profile photo for an artist account? Grab an up to date press photo and submit the change here.

Have questions about the new guidelines, or your streaming strategy in general? Contact your Project Manger to talk further. New to Redeye? Reach out to us to learn more via our CONTACT page.
