I have spent a decent amount of time conjuring relationships with certain Spotify curators and being able to offer a service to artists on getting placed on Spotify playlists.
It’s pretty hard to get on a playlist without paying because in today’s day an age spotify curators have realised the power and social proof that comes with building a legitimate playlist. So it’s more of a numbers game when it comes to reaching out to playlist curators and asking them to feature your music on their playlist.
Yet more likely than not they are going to ask for a fee for the feature.
Which is always negotiable and you should always barter down because usually overvalue what they’re charging because someone else has paid that price for it. But the fair value of that placement on that playlist does not equal the asking price to feature on the playlist.
There are multiple ways of trying to find spotify curators and contacting them.
The most efficient way to find spotify curators is by going on the spotify app on the windows desktop and clicking on the playlists section.
How To Find Spotify Curators?
Use the search bar, so if you are interested in a country playlist you would type in the country on the playlist search bar and click each playlist to see if there is a curator attached to that playlist. The Spotify curator is going to put their email address or their Instagram account as contact info to be listed on the playlist description. I always recommend building a list of 20 or more spotify curators because having a small list of 2 to 3 curators most likely means you’re not going to get any responses. So you have to play the numbers to your advantage.
Yet after you get in contact with multiple spotify curators your next goal is to try to figure out what their base prices are and barter down by using other spotify carators prices. This will help secure the best price when it comes to how many views you get per dollar you spend on spotify playlisting.
Also, building relationships with these playlist curators over time could enable you to get free placements on other playlists in the future.
Most likely once you’ve done a certain amount of business with them.
There are other resources when it comes to securing spotify playlist but these resources are bombarded with independent artists trying to get on playlists. So your best bet is to grind on your own time and find playlist curators that aren’t being contacted 24/7 because they had an open invite on a certain website or service.
Finding The Right Spotify Playlists?
It is very important to make sure that the playlist you are trying to apply for you’re trying to negotiate with. Make sure the playlist consists mostly of American viewership instead of a ton of low-value plays of 3rd world countries.
There’s nothing wrong with 3rd world country viewership but you’re getting more for your money when your songs are advertised to US listeners for spotify playlisting. So you wanna make sure that is the main type of listener you are getting when you apply for a certain playlist. Also, you want to be careful of fake spotify playlists that inflate the followers of their playlist.
Spotify playlist promotion services have been a very profitable business for people who have built legitimate Spotify playlists.
So that means there is always bound to be fake spotify playlists trying to make a quick buck.
When you talk to the Spotify curator you want to ask them what their main audience’s geography is and how many plays on average the song is going to get. This info will be helpful for weighing your options and figuring out what playlist seems like the best deal. When it comes to approaching spotify curators your email should be formatted in a way where you’re asking for the price and any additional questions that you have.
Not all spotify curators will respond but you will get a good amount of replies if you send out a good amount of emails. My recommendation from earlier in this article was to have a list of around 20 spotify curators. This is a good start and you could scale up to 100 spotify curators depending on how big your advertising campaign is and how you want to spread out your budget.

An independent artist with a budget of around $100 to $200 per single is a pretty good benchmark when it comes to advertising on Spotify. Industry artists will use around $2500 plus when it comes to their advertising budget per single. As you can see you can really scale up when it comes to Spotify playlist advertising and there is really no limit to your budget when it comes to how much you can spend. But I would always recommend setting a budget that’s good for you.
In summary, Spotify playlists are a good way to market yourself as an artist and it’s a great way to gain more organic traffic to your singles after the promotion ends because the flow of plays and listeners will bring new organic followers and listeners. There are other ways to advertise as an artist but you should always set aside some budget for Spotify playlist because they are one of the best independent artists advertising strategies. So it’s a good skill to learn as an independent artist how to secure this playlist yourself.
