Snapchat & Spotify Integration — Music Marketing Opportunities For Artists
By Shawn Spence
MusicPromoToday’s team is constantly on the look for new + unique ways to promote artists + music — to help YOU make more buzz with your MUSIC!
Spotify and Snapchat recently launched a feature that can boost one’s career and step musicians reach all around the world.
Spotify, with 217 million monthly active users worldwide, and Snapchat with 190 million daily (!) active users are undoubtedly the most popular apps in the Apple Store. After Instagram launched a Spotify share for stories in 2018, Snapchat’s integration to Spotify was the next logical move.
Spotify And Snapchat Feature
The new Snapchat and Spotify integration allows you to easily share what you are listening to a particular song, full albums, and playlists. Once you share them in Snapchat Stories, you can still spice it up with stickers and a text.
When your Story is live, your audience can simply swipe up from the bottom of the screen, and start playing the tracks on Spotify! Of course, as long as the app is installed on their phones.
Our team at MusicPromoToday believes that this feature is another great opportunity for music digital marketing. Musicians gained another simple (and free) way to promote their music and reach a new audience, and as an outcome, boost the Spotify streams.
How artists can use Spotify and Snapchat’s new feature to promote their music?
The MusicPromoToday team has a few ideas on how the new feature can be used in music marketing and in promoting new releases.
Firstly, share your music in Snapchat Stories.
As simple as it sounds, as effective it is. To reach a bigger audience, promote your Snapchat profile on other social media platforms, eg. ask your Instagram and Facebook followers to add you on Snapchat.
Secondly, create a Snapchat group for your fans, and share your music or podcasts with them.
Spice your stories up with lyrics explanations, or by describing what inspires you. Name the group in a funny and catchy way, and mention your fans in your stories as much as possible. It’s essential to create an intimate and personal connection.
