With an active community of music fans who have shared 22 million tracks via 139,000 playlists to date, ShareMyPlaylists continues to prove its worth. If you recall, we already touted them around this time last year. Compare the numbers and see the growth for yourself.
Today, ShareMyPlaylists receives 1.5 million unique visitors and 2.5 million page impressions per month. Breaking it down, it comes out to 200 new playlists uploaded a day, 300 new members a day and an average of 40,000 playlists played… per day. That’s pretty impressive stuff right there.
There are so many reasons why this service is great and easy to use. For branding, all playlists can be uploaded with custom graphics to increase visibility. HTML links and copy can be loaded to accompany a playlist. To help gauge popularity, you can track the number of plays each playlist receives. Fully licensed lyrics for all the tracks can also be displayed.
SMP also offers branded pages to store high quality playlists from selected partners. On Artist pages, you’ll find all tracks within playlists, all releases available in Spotify, as well as all playlists that feature that artist.
In addition, marketing opportunities exist to extend the reach of your playlist via a network of banner ads across the site, editorial picks, newsletter mentions and Featured Playlist spots on the homepage.
There are only 3 steps to uploading a playlist to ShareMyPlaylists.com. Once you are logged in (you can register on the website), complete these next easy steps.
- Click on the “Submit Your Playlist” button near the top of the page.
- Follow the instructions for playlist title, Spotify URL, etc. Most important is to upload custom playlist artwork to ensure your playlist stands out. Default size for artwork is 150 x 150 pixels, although SMP will automatically resize if larger.
- In the “Playlist Description” field, SMP accepts HTML, so feel free to include links back to your web properties.
With these few steps plus those in our previous blog post, you’ll be an expert on structuring playlists and ensuring they’ll generate views and listens. In the meantime, feel free to check out our page on ShareMyPlaylists!
