I've been on a quest to research ways to get my streams up and just like everything else I want to share the knowledge with you.
A dope hack I've been experimenting with is creating a playlist on Spotify or any platform really and then promoting that playlist with my own music on it.
I found this article written over at Soundfly that lists 8 ways to get more followers for these playlists.
The idea is to create a playlist with music similar to yours & add your own music to it. Find larger artists with music that has a vibe like yours- its easier to pitch larger artists to a stranger than it is to pitch our own music sometimes.
