Spotify has grown massively in the last five years. The service boasts an approximate of 217 million active users, of which 100 million are premium subscribers. Spotify also offers users incredible exposure to new music through playlists. Playlists form a huge part of why Spotify has the success it has. There are different kinds of playlists on Spotify.
- Personal Playlists: Playlists that are created by artists to gain traction for their music.
- User Playlists: Regular users also have a chance to add their favorite songs into a playlist. This can be made public so others can also follow it.
- Editorial Playlists: This makes up a huge chunk of all the visible playlists. These are made of music compiled by Spotify’s editorial team. These receive maximum promotion.
- Algorithmic Playlists: Spotify has algorithms put in place to create playlists that have songs by artists that a user has listened to.
- Branded Playlists: These are playlists created by third-parties and major labels.
Getting followers on Spotify for your profile and your playlist can increase your exposure as an artist on the platform. Reputed services like SocioBlend pride themselves on helping you organically grow your Spotify profile.
An important point to note before diving into this is that these numbers are only visible on the Spotify Desktop Application. This might come as a disappointment for those who use Spotify only on their mobile devices. Currently, they support mainly Windows and Mac clients. They have a Linux supported version, which functions slightly lower than the others.
