How to get promoted on Spotify
The world’s biggest music streaming service has launched a new program that allows artists to promote their tracks in a “spotify-style” ad.
The move comes as Spotify continues to grapple with an aggressive advertising campaign that has included ads that promote alcohol and drug use.
The program is available in Australia, Canada, Denmark, Finland, France, Germany, Hong Kong, Ireland, Italy, Japan, New Zealand, Norway, Portugal, Singapore, Spain, Sweden and the United Kingdom.
Spotify’s new ad program, Spotify Pro, lets users post music videos and short videos in an “artist-specific” spot on the streaming service.
Artists are asked to “sell” the spot on Spotify, which has since introduced a new advertising platform called Spotify Pro that allows publishers to post ad-free music videos.
Spotify is one of several music streaming services that has expanded its advertising reach, which had previously been limited to radio, podcasts and books.
Spotify has long had a hard time attracting advertisers because of its music-related ads.
Spotify declined to comment on the new program.
Spotify will also start offering a free “spot” ad for the first three months of the program.
The ad features a woman in a bikini sitting in front of a picture of a woman.
The spot starts out by telling viewers that the “spot is for you.”
The ad ends with a shot of the woman sitting in a pool.
“It’s not just about ads,” Spotify said in a statement.
“Spotify Pro is a new way to help our artists get more exposure to the Spotify community.”
Spotify has faced criticism for using its platform to push alcohol and drugs.
Earlier this month, Spotify announced that it would be banning alcohol and other illegal substances on the service for three months starting July 1.
Spotify also announced last week that it was ending its advertising campaign in Australia.
In March, Spotify launched a series of ad-supported “spotless” ads, which featured no ads.
But Spotify’s latest ad campaign was focused on music videos, which have been an increasingly popular avenue for advertising on the company’s platform.
