I have just been contacted by a marketing agency, single click. (Im not sure if I am allowed to post their website, but the website is decent and the person who contacted me is on linked in with the company being described as " Digital-first music company with distribution agreements with Warner Music Group & Kobalt Music.Features on Spotify's New Music Friday (Global, US, Canada, Germany, Sweden, Portugal, Italy,France), Viral 50 (US, UK, Mexico, Portugal, Japan, Indonesia), Mood Booster, Spinnin' Records Top100, Fresh Electronic, New Music Friday Cratediggers and Back 2 Basics."
Just curious as to if it is normal to get contacted by scammers trying to push your singles onto Spotify playlists or if the following email exchange is legit? (I have been submitting a ton on submit hub and other playlist currator sites so my contact info would be relatively easy to target.)
Has anyone ever used a service like this? Did it meet their expectations?
" Hi Otherwise Fine,
I recently came across your new EP 'Iwantu' on Spotify.
Are you interested in a playlist pitching campaign for one of your tracks?..."
[I respond that I am interested want to hear more]
"... Campaign #1: Minimum 8-10 independent tastemaker playlist adds with minimum 200k-250k combined followers across playlists guaranteed
Campaign #2: Minimum 15-20 independent tastemaker playlist adds with minimum 400k-500k combined followers across playlists guaranteed
Most artists go with option 2, as the playlist adds, data and streams collected from that option usually triggers enough algorithms to get placed in Discover Weekly and other algorithmic charts that get you in front of the eyes of Official Spotify editors for consideration on their official playlists...."
