We are the first digital provider in Poland and Central Europe on the list of recommended Spotify partners. Joining this elite group confirms that we meet Spotify standards for delivering music and podcasts. What distinguishes digital distributor recommended by Spotify?
Spotify lists four most important elements:
Ability to promote music in Spotify and take care of artist profiles
The delivery of the song is “only” opening to the opportunities offered by Spotify. Today, the streaming service is not only an audio application, but also a powerful promotional tool with many ad formats, solutions such as Artist Pic or Canvas as well as algorithmic, editorial and user-driven playlists – says Marek Włodarczyk, co-owner and CEO of Independent Digital
Providing high-quality song descriptions and information about the artists
Well-prepared metadata (information about the track and artist) increases the chance of reaching not only your fans, but also your audience, who can become your fans. They also make it easy to find a song among millions others.
Artists and labels working with digital distributor recommended by Spotify receive transparent data on the monetization. The provider also takes care of regular payments of the royalties you earn when listeners stream your music.
Full and fast access to data
Distributors also offer instant access to Spotify For Artists for all their users—which means you can get access to your artist profile and stats as soon as your music goes live on Spotify.
These providers meet industry best practices for providing high-quality metadata and enacting anti-infringement measures. Preferred providers meet our highest standards – Spotify writes on its website.
