Spotify contests are a great way to get more followers.
Playlist curators, podcasters and artists often wonder “how can we get more Spotify followers”, that’s why we’ve created a contest strategy designed so you can easily do just that. Follow on Spotify is a new contest entry method that not only boosts followers and listeners, but allows you to increase your Facebook fans, Instagram followers, YouTube subscribers and more – all with just one contest.
“Ask your fans to follow you on Spotify to enter to win your contest. Rewards Fuel will keep track of you contestants, send notifications and pick your winners”
It all starts with offering a great prize. And a great prize doesn’t always mean that you need to spend a lot of money. Often giving away experiences as prizes can really take your contest to the next level. Releasing an album? Send your winner an autographed copy. Have a show coming up? Offer a meet and greet backstage. Is there a big festival on the horizon? A pair of festival tickets will do the trick; plus you can benefit by posting about your giveaway with the official festival hashtag. 😉
Next, look at collaborating with partners. Who can you team up with that’s looking to reach the same audience? Not only will you be able to create a better prize, but you’ll receive additional exposure through your partners. If you’re not able to work with corporate partners, consider reaching out to influencers in your industry to boost your contest promotion.
