“Ask your fans to enter to win one of your Spotify contests. Rewards Fuel will keep track of all your contestants, send notifications and even 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. ūüėČ

Collaborate on your Spotify Contests 

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.
